I am glad you sent the notification for the poll, as I would not have seen it otherwise as I have not visited the space recently in part as there is not a place for social or chat here.
Seems that may be getting addressed, though I really want to see community involvement in this, as opposed to only staff making the decisions. Then again, these were made in response to community input and requests, so I suppose I am answering my own question / issue. Decided to post this anyway as an opportunity to share in my own thinking on this, sort of like a Proustian Memory https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Involuntary_memory#Marcel_Proust—Proustian_memory related in part as Proust is my current reading. TMI, but this poll is about social after all.
Probably too late to say that I do not like any of the names of the social space offered in the survey – they all seem a bit like Star Trek from the 60’s, and not really forward thinking enough to be a social spot. Take the Satellite, which is something that spins around the important stuff, as if a social spot were only an offshoot and not core to the purpose of this space itself. Space Station also has the sense of being an outpost, while I think social and an opportunity for these very sorts of conversations are key to this system growing legs and taking off (pun intended). Not sure I really relate to The Nebula (like the Science Fiction award?) or The Galaxy (anybody hear, “Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope” in the ether? Then again, I did not offer any other options, so there you go.
Alas, maybe I should have replied here before stuffing my head full of the space opera or telenovela that is FramBan.
Ahh, we do need social, if for no other reason than to try to make sense of the wonderful and zany world we are making through the experiment that is Wiki.
