Okay... I was gonna put in all that had at least 10 votes, but that wouldn't have limited us down much more from the 10, so I took the ones with 13 or more votes and then added in the 2nd version of TBR since there was so much discussion over it. Let the voting commence...

hopefully this round will give us a clear winner... *crossing fingers*

Trust me, I'm as tired as you are with trying to pick the name and I assume there will be people unhappy no matter what ends up winning. I'll just put up my shield and try to avoid all the :bash: There are too many different people in this forum and there's no way we can all agree on the name. Honestly, it's really not that important as long as it's a name that we can all remember easily. It's the content of the forum that is important and we ALL make up that aspect of the site.

Don't worry Sand, I won't beat you up over the name...I just don't have time to care about it that much. However, if you do another round of voting...I might have to drive over and :bash: you!

I voted for bookobsessed because we all are. I also like that it has a .com and not a .net domain. It is clear to anyone who reads it (whether already familiar witht eh site or not) what it is all about. While including TBR is cute, this is not a common anagram for the general population. I am also don't like domain names with numbers and dashes in them. They are too hard for me to remember.

Hopefully this poll will finally get us a name! :rolleyes:

I would have liked to have done that. I had a fave pick, but it got kicked out the last round. It was my initial idea from the start, but I figured if I just picked something I'd have basically burned myself at the stake so-to-speak. (I should really stop quoting stuff from books I've just read :P )

:kiss: Sand, I think it's very nice of you to put this to a vote here and that everyone should appreciate that! Most sites get named by the creator and that's that - I wouldn't mind if you just chose the name you wanted, but I understand where you're coming from - there are a lot of people here who feel very strongly about the community and thus there's a widespread feeling of "ownership" - I think it's cool that you've put it to a vote and let everyone be part of it! :wub:

I voted too!! Glad InfiniteTBR is still in the round! :bananadance:
It is actually easier to vote in this round for me. The term TBR, Mt TBR etc are so BookCross-ish, it gives us a distinction as BCers, rather than just booklovers in general. And I agree with Ri that sites with dash or numbers or things like that are cumbersome and harder to remember. Same for .net - it always feel like you settle for a .net just because someone has taken .com already...

Anyway, as we are having two new monthly groups starting up, maybe some of the brilliant name nominations can be used to name the groups. Or should we pull a poll for We Need A New Name for A New Group? (dodging...)
