Do you think it's time for Gamer's Conflict to have a new name?

I voted protium for old time's sake. I also like the idea of "Gone Critical".

Some background on this poll for our users:

I was musing to JC that we don't really have anything to do with gaming or gamers at all. Most of us (including you users!) are/were gamers, but the theme and topic of the network really don't have anything to do with that.

We happen to have which we use for some of our bare-metal and virtual servers, which sounds cool for an irc network. But we also have which has a legacy.

Protium as it was during its peak will never happen again; we wouldn't be trying to do that. Instead we'd be simply changing the name to something more reflective of the network: We're not a gaming network. We're a bunch of friends who have been on IRC forever.

Also for the lazy, there's a pretty certain chance that even the domains you use to connect now wouldn't change.
