My posts keep getting deleted in the official one and I DO OWN some boolberry and want to vote for the existing name.  And have a poll (please don't vote if you don't own some).

See this of the other censored poll without the option to keep boolberry  Roll Eyes

We didn't ask to change the name, as the OP clearly shows.

We sure as Hell didn't vote on a slate of three absolutely awful replacement candidates.



We want normal people to use BBR, not just greasy teenage virgins who wear rad vintage AC/DC and Metallica tshirts like their heroes Beavis & Butthead.

"Rune?"  No.  Not just no, but hell no.  'Boolberry' is lighthearted and fun.  "Rune" is all dark and angst-ridden, like a smelly trench coat mom needs to have dry-cleaned.

I honestly think they should have had a community "Brainstorming" thread where everyone could have discussed a few more name choices to vote on. Then do a final vote along with the original three they came up with.

I honestly don't mind boolberry at all, I personally like bitberry myself since it's shorter and easy to say. I think that domain isn't available tho.

The other thing is that I really like the current logo. I'd stay with boolberry if it meant having to choose one of the current three.

Thank you for creating this thread.

BBR devs seem to enjoy disrespecting the BBR community. Why else would they not even have an option to keep the name Boolberry?

Time for new management imo

This is what was done for the previous polls, and there was no consensus because everyone had their own favorite name. And when one did have some consensus it wasn't possible because of domains, etc.

When CZ decided on Boolberry, everyone was outraged because that wasn't even suggested before (it was a combination of two suggested names). The reason there is no option to keep Boolberry is because there has been four months of bashing "Boolberry". Now all the sudden people love that name.

How is getting the community's opinion on three possible options "disrespectful" to the community? The vast majority of things are named by their creator. The community has no entitlement to decide the name of something, and it is unheard of for the community to be given any options at all in the name of something. The vitriol over the name is ridiculous.

Thanks for the background surfer.  I'd forgotten most of that old drama from last season of All My Altcoins.    Tongue

The warming up to BBR happend over time, not "all the sudden."  Since CZ imposed BBR months ago, his coin has enjoyed great success that puts almost any other altcoin to shame. 

BBR is working.  It isn't broken and doesn't need fixing.  BBR clearly has a bright future.  RUNE, not so much...

The "disrespect" comes from a pre-made decision being dressed up as the consensus of the community, with dissenting posts being deleted, rigged ballots, etc.

Ancient history aside, the current consensus of the community is to keep the name BBR, and that the name Rune is insultingly godawful.

There is already a vortex coin, so you can't use that name. Here's the vortex coin thread.

This is election fraud.  We didn't ask for a name change, we don't like the 3 godawful choices, and our dissent is being censored.

I dont understand everyone wanting to go for Rune or Vortex as a name. Its like someone just came from playing a session of Mortal Kombat and decided to grab a few words out of the playing manual.

At least with Boolberry it was something interesting - the other 2 choice are just so drab i cant begin to express how shit i feel they are - absolutely zero relation to what the project is about and has ties to weird mythical/druid/time travel...great...

 Grin Grin Grin

"Mortal Kombat manual"

lol.  so rekt.


Vote for Sektor! 


The best name chosen from the MK manual.

I'm sticking with my original thought when this name change thing was brought up in May.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=618470.msg6880715#msg6880715

RINGS is the best name for a CN coin. Not Rune or Vortex. Why not just call it cyclopse or storm or wolver... you know.

XRG XRN XRS XOO

The last one is two rings, see what I did there?  Wink

or.... just leave the name alone. BBR is just fine.

My recollection is that he came up with the name. People complained and he offered the opportunity to suggest replacement names. He didn't like any of those names, so he kept Boolberry. I could be wrong, that is just from memory.

Now all the sudden people love that name.

My observation is that complaints about the name have gone away over time, especially once the price started going up. I don't think it is sudden at all.

He did come up with the name and I immediately liked it - everything about it was perfect for the target audience - which isn't "basement dwelling neckbeards" as someone hilariously put it.

I had a pm exchange with zoidberg at the time, as well as posting publicly, and like to think that I played some small part in resisting a change back then.

Boolberry stands out. Rune is open the dictionary and point at a word and get another name for 1 in 1000 altcoin.

If you are going to change the name, it needs to standout more than Rune.

Why not Bools? Keep continuity and shorten the name and discard the silly berries.

Or Boollars or BBollars.

I am AnonyMint (or BCX or Schrödinger's cat?).

I like Bools somewhat. The argument about dropping the berries make some sense. Boollars or BBollars are terrible.
