They are both two step criteria filtering + vote, the only thing that is different is the criteria.

That is the subjective aspect of any name, and it will vary from person to person.

What will not vary are the objective qualities, whether it is pronounceable can be reduced to whether it has vowels, or whether it is too long stems directly from the number of syllables, philosophical or scientific terms are universal by nature, and having the name of the game in a weapon name directly relates to whether it is and will continue to be the most overused weapon.

TVR: The Core team wouldn't be judging the names. They'd just make 20 or so names. The community would vote... Based upon what they like the most.

Sure, go ahead and get the Core team to sift through the list of names for the Nex, and choose 10 (Polls on the BBS are limited to 10 options only).

I'd comment on how having the 'Core' team make arbitrary decisions is unhealthy for the project, but I'll save that for a later date.

Of all the problems that we have, the limiting of polls to 10 items is the least. It's relatively easy to write a rudimentary poll system, or we could use polldaddy or something.

This system itself is arbitrary.

It comes back to how much work you want to offload on to the 'Core' team.

Otherwise, I'll be proceeding with the scoring of every name including the revised criteria given by divVerent, I'll post the results after I'm done.

So can we proceed with whittling down the list to 10, then putting it up for a vote? Here are my 10 favorites. Does anyone feel like there are any major contenders I left out?

Xon
Xonos
Xonic
PAR
X Gun
Annihilator
Viper
Rapid Energy Accelerator Pulse Rifle (REAPR)
dug (depleated uranium gun)
Flux Rifle (maybe just Flux?)

I'm just going to put a poll out there and we'll see what happens. In the worst case we'll have some data on what people feel strongly about.

Update: poll created here http://forums.xonotic.org/showthread.php?tid=630
