To respond to Anubis, nobody needs the name to remind them of what we need to do or what we don't need to do. We've always known what's right or wrong. The only reason the goddamn name changed is because that jacksauce held it hostage from 99% of everyone who KNEW what was right. For them to GTFO.
It's not so much about reminders about what we do, it's more about having a name that is reflective of who we are and what we stand for. Sure, Society reflects our community focus - but it doesn't reflect what we stand for, who we are.
This is why the reason why you came into exile is so important here. If you came to escape people, it reflecting your wish to leave them behind you is not altogether meaningful - hence why I can understand your desire for change. But for me, it reflects what this group is all about and our stand for principles and what is fair - and ultimately, our friendship.
If it were just a case of "Keep it so we don't forget the SSC", then I would be all in favour of change. But it is deeper than that for me - the name conveys who we are, it represents what we stand for, and "Exiles" does that very appropriately imo.

Anubis wrote:We won't abbreviate it to =SSS= even if this passes. The fact that it is too similar to the SS is a very good point, and it would be wrong for us to adopt such an abbreviation given that strong connotation. It would also be incredibly unfair to any German members we have - the last thing we want is to alienate people because of the name.
=S3= or =S= would be the likely abbreviations I suspect. Though if anyone wants to suggest others they are welcome to.

The original SSC star design was split into different pieces and each of the 5 points represented one of our ideals, so maybe the design came first and the "shattered" part of the name came from that.. not sure. Always loved the Shattered Star name, but i've always preferred Confederation (and =SSC=) to Exiles.El Oso wrote:Was there any particular reasoning behind the initial choice of "Shattered Star"?

I won't go into detail and write a lecture on it here, but an explanation can be found here: http://web.archive.org/web/20030810223243/www.shatteredstar.com/ideals.shtml
When we split off we didn't bring those ideals with us as part of a written doctrine for this place - we chose to focus more singly on the Friendship ideal which has worked well for us, but they were (and are) very much still believed in and upheld by us all - and the name still represents them to date.
Right off the bat, if anyone is wondering why we are exiles or in exile, You should ask the members to shed light on that issue, preferably from more sources, because everyone holds their own opinion and reasoning for our position. The only important thing to say is that we are exiles by choice, not because we were forced to be.
Those who struck out from the SSC to become the SSX have experienced many of the things that happen to online gaming guilds/groups. We have seen mass exoduses, people causing problems for other members, server changes and people leaving only to come back shortly after. We have learned through sad experience how to stick together, and what it takes to allow a group of people to exist longer than your typical guild/group. The SSX is not going anywhere anytime soon.

Thought about what to say for awhile and the answer is actually simpler (and much shorter) then I had first imagined. I was looking at it from my own perspective and not that of the poll. Think it is just asking if folks are still apart of the SSC that exists now. Not the True SSC or the Idea/Ideal of what the SSC is/was.
Its Both. SSC and not SSC. FTW
My answer was above, the rest of this is/are the ramblings of Pad's accursed ill begotten mind...
Disregard all context to the topic at hand.
TY and Have a Good Day.
SSC is simply a title or name. Has no meaning to me. What we did, what we stood for, what we acomplished.... we brought with us. So WE are actually the SSC. Since our unequal; holier then tho; Triad of Eve-L Biased ruler pulled rank, we simply chose a new name...... SSX. Same people, same friends, same unity.... title changed. I greatly enjoy how we now focus more on ACTUAL friendship, then on rules and allowable (and continual) grievances/transgressions.
So WE are the SSC... or the SSX.... or whatever name we wish to call ourselves. We still do what we do.
Sure, there are things I miss from the past, but that is true with all things. As we live and grow, things change and you move on.
And other things stay the same
