[MEI-L] Do we have to call it "MEI Go!"?

Thanks Andrew and Don for pushing this issue forward.
If you don't mind I have set up a simple Doodle poll suggesting May 18th, 2017, as the end date, so the results are available for the MEI community meeting in Tours. Following Don Byrds collection of suggestions, I just added MEI Simple, MEI Presto(!) and MEI First as options (the "unserious" ones will eliminate themselves anyway, I guess). If anyone wants to have another name that hasn't been mentioned yet, please use the commentary function below the poll.
There are three possibilities for every option:
1) Yes = "let us call us this way"
2) (Yes) = "if needs must"
3) No = "definitely not"
So, if you really don't like an option, make sure to click on "No" (not only "Yes" for the ones you like); there can be multiple yes'es and multiple no's. Please make also sure to provide a distinguishable name (I guess "Stefan" won't be, otherwise "p." in this only special case could work ;).

You're welcome, Andrew. I think a Doodle poll is a good idea; I just don't want to set it up myself!

>>> As far as I'm concerned, MEI Go! has been a code-name that was suggested at last year's unconference meeting. It is, and has been, just a way of referring to a simpler version of MEI intended for wider adoption, and isn't a 'fait accompli'. Suggestions and critique are welcome, but rattling off messages with no attempt at organizing them and seeking consensus on a single name isn't really going to result in anything better.
>>> So perhaps someone with an interest in helping our community choose a great name can compile a list of the suggestions that have been made, and/or set up a Doodle poll link with write-in space for suggestions? That would save a lot of time and energy (and inbox space).
