What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;

(Romeo & Juliet Act II Scene II - Capulet's orchard)


For ten months, the official name has been Passions in Poetry. For ten months, I've often shortened that to simply Passions. In recent days, I've noticed a new moniker repeatedly surfacing: PiP.

Now, personally, I think this issue is far more important, with far greater ramifications, than which way we roll our TP. I'm calling for an official vote: What is to be the nickname of Passions in Poetry?


Passions...9 (multiple smiles don't count extra )
PiP........0 (Where's all the PiPers???)
Other......0


Addendum - Related question #1:

If we had a little animated mascot named PiP, would PiP be male or female? What would PiP look like?

How about:

Passions is the better choice as we are not just about poetry.....Passions....all kinds.. is the aim here....a passion to write.. a passion to learn...a passion to meet people with like interests.....a passion to be the best we can be...this is passions....

Passions get's my vote, because of the representation, but JP, if someone tells you how to save the strokes, let me know! (Bigger-better-stronger-faster don't you know!)

JP, if you can give me an adequate explaination of how Passions resolves to 5 keystrokes, I'll tell you how to do the macro...

I admit, I may have been the culprit [mea culpa] in shortening Passions In Poetry to "PiP". Ooops.

While I think that this place is one heck of a "PiP" to be, I will go along in the majority, because I really don't want to end up being barred or [heavens] blackballed by anyone here. [Not saying that this would happen, but you never know.]

There will be no fence-sitting, Sunshine!

There's nothing wrong with PiP, and you certainly weren't the only one to use it - we just gotta set the record straight, that's all. Hey, maybe we should get a mascot - named Pip!!!!

At any rate, your vote doesn't count, Sunshine, until you stop equivocating... Which is it????

Well heck, Ron, if we can get PiP as a mascot, then of course, Passions! It's really easy for me to get off the fence when you hand me a no-brainer.

One question? Who's volunteering to be PiP?
LOL! Thanks!

I think PiP should be a little worm (don't make him green, make him blue), wearing glasses holding a pen or quill.....bookworm type of thing....(No sheep, no moose! I know Toerag and Balladeer will choose those...)

I vote for:

Passions

because that to me talks of caring for others, writing from the heart or indeed of writing on any subject that makes you PASSIONate..

Hope i'm not to late to post my own two cents.
I say the name should stay as Passions, Because poetry has many passions. And the word PiP just doesn't express that emotion.
