Looking For A Name

email announcing the voting phase, closing the nomination phase:

Voting phase Info

hey all,

nomination phase is over since yesterday.

modified deadline for the voting phase is 3rd April 17:00 UTC+0200

(it was originally 3rd April 17:00 UTC+0100 but then stupid daylight savings came in)

plesase look at this spreadsheet: https://ethercalc.org/554is070k6b2

and create a ranking of your favorite names. either one name per line in order of decreasing preference, or as a json list of names in a similar order. then send it to me.

you can do so until: 3rd April 17:00 UTC+0200

for the evaluation of the votes we use the schulze method: (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schulze_method) as it is being used by projects such as the debian, gentoo, pirate party, fsfe and others.

eligibility who is eligible for voting? anyone on the list of people contributing to our monthly costs, the mailing list and on our irc channel.

what is a ranking?

a ranking is an ordered list of names starting with the most preferred in decreasing order of preference. you can also have multiple names at the same preference, in this case write the names separated in one line. you do not have to list all names from the ethercalc sheet, all omitted names are considered least preferred without any order among these.

if you want to help making this as easy as possible for us to evaluate, send the ranking as a json list of lists: [ ['most prefered name1', 'similarly ranked #1 name'], ['2nd ranked name'], ['3rd ranked name'], .... ['last ranked name']]

we will publish all votes anonymously on the wiki, where you can verify that your vote is included and that the schulze method has been applied correctly.

happy hacking^Wvoting, s

Nomination Phase

[...snip...] It is suggested that "Hackerspace Nijmegen" is too generic. It is a good name for the foundation ("Stichting Hackerspace Nijmegen"), but for the club of people or the physical space we could most probably invent a better name.

That is why we started to collect names. The names are stored in an online ethercalc spreadsheet. It is a brainstorm list. Please get inspired by the names already there, and add your suggestions to the list.

Nominations Phase

we have currently 112 suggestions. we should hurry up with choosing a name if we don't have one by the time we have our opening party the generic hackerspacenijmegen will stick. to facilitate a quick and fair selection we should stop making new suggestions on the above quoted ethercalc sheet by 28th March 17:00 UTC+0100. this is the nominations deadline.
