RUGANZ umbrella group name...

Postby Wesley » 14 Oct 2009, 02:03

As many of you may be aware, the committees for a number of the regional user groups have been looking at ways in which we might better integrate some of our common functions and requirments to leverage currently duplicated systems, and to increase our bargaining positions with resellers and Autodesk.

We have not yet settled one of the most basic questions however, which in a web-enabled world is more important than ever.... What are we called??? In order to facilitate this I have added this poll so that everyone can vote on a name. Some names (such as Perspective, our orignal choice) are not available as web domains, which will likely knock them out of contention. These names have come from a subset of those that were considered by the original Revit developers as possible names for the product itself. We thought it was nice to have a 'back-story' to the name, and multiple layers of meaning or interpretation.

Anyway, pick your favourites, and we'll see what happens!
Regards,
Wesley

PS. Please feel free to add a comment, or to make a suggestion of other possibilities...
PPS. Further to Alan's comment, I have added RUGANZ to the poll option :)
PPPS. Ooops, changing the poll at all wipes the previous responses! D'oh! :oops: 2 extra votes for RevCore, 1 for Resonant

I propose:

REVANZ

It includes part of what it's about (Revit), area covered (ANZ) and it rolls easily of the tongue.
And it's unlikely a carpet retailer has already registered the domain.

Hi There,

As I am new to your forum I would go for RUGANZ simply as I don't know the 'background' behind the other name suggestions and this one is fairly self explanitory :D

SPAM

We are being targeted by spammers!!
And this time the offensive and vulgar language comes from one of our disgruntled former members.
What a shame!
