2nd vote October 25th, 2015
this is a formal Call for Votes (CfV) as per § 9 VotR. It officially
opens the voting period for the vote described below, that is, you are
now free to exercise your right to vote. A vote that is accepted by the
team results in a final decision on a topic and determines how to
proceed, so please take care before you participate.
Allowed to vote is any team member, which as per § 1 VotR is everybody
who is publically listed as a member of the “Secretchronicles”
organisation on GitHub. These are the following eight people:
- - brianvanderburg2, aka simpletoon
- - DarkAceZ
- - datahead8888
- - Luiji
- - Quintus
- - sauer2
- - sydneyjd
- - xet7
The vote was proposed by me, Quintus <quintus(a)quintilianus.eu>.
There was a discussion spawned in the issue tracker (ticket #441)
about whether or not to rename the special mode that makes Alex
invincible from “Funky God Mode” to something different. The main
argument was that the term might be perceived as an unnecessary and
maybe even blasphemic use of the name of God for highly religious
Christians. There has been a good number of pros and cons being
exchanged on the tracker, which I advise everyone to carefully read
before making a decision.
As it appears to be impossible to find a compromise (one can’t really
change the name only partly) and there are people arguing for both
options, I determined a vote was necessary to clear the matter up.
To ease things, this vote not only decides about whether to rename
current God Mode, but also about what to rename it to exactly to prevent
nececcisity of another voting procedure. By voting for option 1 below,
you indicate you want to keep the current naming, voting for any other
option is a vote against the current naming and in favour of another
name (the one you vote for).
Option 1: Funky God Mode (i.e. keep the current naming)
Option 2: Funky god mode (“God” not capitalised)
Option 3: God Mode
Option 4: Dog Mode
Option 5: Invincible Mode
Option 6: Omega Mode
Option 7: Underdog Mode
The voting period has started now. It ends on 2015-11-01 23:59 UTC.
As nobody requested a covert vote, this vote will be held as an open
vote. Please vote by sending an email indicating the option you voted
for to the mailinglist, make an according post to the forum topic
corresponding to this message, or post on the tracker in the ticket
where the vote announcement was published as well. Everybody has only
one vote. If you have a GPG keypair, please use it to sign the message
(this is optional, but recommended).
If no single option receives the most votes (but multiple ones win), a
second vote is held with the set of options reduced to those options
that received the most votes.
If option 1 wins, the current name of “Funky God Mode” will not be
changed now or in the future. Any other option means changing the name
to whatever got the most votes.
