Questions about board name...

First let me start by saying, I'm sorry some felt I moved it too quickly. With that being said, who wants to star over, from scratch and then I will let them run longer. I'm not sure how long is long enough, so maybe a week to get suggestions in and then maybe only do 1 vote from there and allow 2 weeks??

If this sounds good let me know.

I think starting over sounds like a good idea.

I do think we need more time, only because the board is slow and some people who are "regulars' are checking in fairly infrequently. I think each phase should last a minimum of a week and maybe two weeks if we really wanted to be sure everyone got a chance. I don't know what standard protocol for board naming is though.

FWIW, I think you are doing a good job Sarah. I know it is hard to please everybody and everyone has a different idea of the way things should be done. I don't envy you your job. lol

I would say a week per vote should be sufficient. I've seen other boards go with a few days and some go for a month. I think more than a week may feel a bit drawn out. But whatever everyone thinks timewise is good!

I do think we should do two votes though. One down to 5 or even 3 and then one final. That way if your vote wasn't in the top, you can still help choose between the top, KWIM.

I just want to say your doing a good job, anyone that's doing something new isn't going to be perfect. those that choose to lurk instead of being apart on a regular is their problem. I just joined this board this year in march when I decided to give this baby making a try and so far it has been a good experience.

I just got caught up on all the board name posts. Sarah - sorry that this gotten so complicated.

I had originally said not to use Sugar Plums cause I knew someone from that group. I thought I would explain

I don't blame you with DHs ex wife having a sugar plum, lol. I really hope we can all come up with something everyone will love calling their little one. While I know we can't please everyone, I hope every one does like what ever name is chosen.

I agree with maybe having a little longer to vote.
