I could add a name option to the survey but this is such a hot-button topic
that might be unwise, and the survey is quite long.
I can always create a separate survey "BayPIGgies name poll" at no extra
With just your 2 questions.
A 2-question poll would probably get higher response rate, too.
>How about if the survey includes 2 questions:
>1. Would you like to change the name?
>2. Please rate each name:
> Silicon Valley Python Interest Group
>Are these all that have been suggested so far? Can anyone think of
SVPy was suggested.
>Should we add: BayPIG
Probably no point.
>Should we take more time to think about the name? Stephen, is there a
>reason why we are in a hurry to do the survey?
Yes. I want to get it live by 4/9 and get some initial feedback by 4/13
where I want to encourage people and explain what the intent of running it
Also will have paper copies for people who don't want to fill it out online
SurveyMonkey charges me a $20 monthly fee and I want it complete by 4/30
so I can tabulate by 5/7 for the meeting. So there are multiple constraints.
>Then, we need a rule for our decision-making.
>I would think that a big thing like a name-change might require a 2/3
>majority. Does that sound right?
-> Deirdre, Aahz, whatever the charter says
