    Hello Everybody [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    It is now time to cast your vote for the official name of the Sarracenia project. We very much appreciate all who have weighed in with their thoughts and suggestions. The names have been trimmed down to a manageable list with redundant names being excluded.

    Please cast your vote for the name you think fits the idea and vision of the project the best.

    This poll will be open for voting until around 11 p.m. Wednesday, March 3rd, 2004 when the poll closes (topic locked).

    Thank you all so much for your interest and participation. It is very meaningful to the success of this endeavor! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I didn't think of this until seeng the ballot, but maybe it would be a good idea to to first narrow the field by asking questions such as "Sarracenia or Pitcher Plant?"; "North American or American or National or none of the above?"; "Conservation or Preservation"; and "Foundation or Society or Conservancy?". If someone doesn't want a geographic/national reference included, the only choice is Sarracenia Conservation and Preservation Foundation. A large number of people might be more inclined to vote for a name with "Pitcher Plant", but the only choice they've been given is National Conservancy of American Pitcher Plants. Just my $0.02.

    NepG, You can't always get what you want, so vote for one. We can address name changes if necessary later, but we need an identity for the sake of moving on, and establishing ourselves. Cast your vote, we can talk about the rest.

    I never insituated on "getting what I want" all I stated was what I preferred. As far as voting for one of the electees, I prefer not to at the moment.

    I voted for the first name. It sounds shorter and snappier and gets right to the point.

    First of all, we ran a thread since the 23rd requesting names. Only one of the three you mention was stated in the thread, and I sure don't recall you speaking up personally.
    Secondly, the tough thing about a democracy is you have 100 people with 100 different ideas. I personally hand picked the ones I felt suitable and that where not reduntant. I am not to found, nor are many of the people that will/should hold chair possitions, of the term "pitcher plant". We are setting out to be a scientific society, so why should we call ourselves by a non-scientific term? Although I did include on name with pitcher plant, because there was more than one person that expressed they liked it. I tried to objectivly take the views of the public and compound them into a single poll, if you did not speak up in the 7 days given, then I am sorry but the fault lies with yourself.

    If anyone is offended by the choices in the poll, the fault lies directly on my shoulders and I apologize.
