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 gonecritical.com which we use for some of our bare-metal and virtual servers, which sounds cool for an irc network. But we also have protium.org 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.
