Oh yes, and lets not forget Keyhoteestan.

That's a small country I may get around to forming on a mountaintop in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

19.0071290, -153.8387376

It's elevation is currently comparable to Death Valley in the California Mojave Dessert, but it has a much wetter climate.
Right now you can't grow much there, but after I reverse global warming and get a lot of the ocean piled back up on the polar ice caps, I think it could be quite nice.

The only thing I can say for it now is that it is sovereign territory.


Anything said on these forums does not constitute an intent to create a legal obligation or contract of any kind.   These are merely my opinions which I reserve the right to change at any time.

How about this for a simple solution?

There are lots of examples where the same product is marketed under different names to reach different demographics.

Dodge and Plymouth produced the Neon and the Colt
Plymouth and Chrysler produced the Voyager
Pontiac and Ferrari did the GTO
Nissan Quest and Mercury Villager were essentially identical.

So we could release Keyhotee in many different flavors, named to gain traction in different markets:

Keyhotee 屠龙
Keyhotee Drachentöter
Keyhotee драконов
Keyhotee קוטל הדרקונים
Keyhotee δρακοντοκτόνος
Keyhotee ドラゴンスレイヤー
Keyhotee smokow

Interestingly, half the languages I checked used the same exact word:  dragonslayer!

I would be fully in favor of rebranding as Keyslayer.  Keytoter would be nice too.  "Killer" in German but "Tote" has a nice connotation in English as well, which actually kind of describes what Keyhotee does!  It carries your keys for you.

That's not a fair poll. You should include Keyhotee as an option too
+1 Agree

The option to leave it alone is voting for Keyhotee.

It still says Keyhotee is the best option.
The poll doesn't ask: Change it? Y/N

Can we have a poll option to get rid of the 'h' ? We at least dont want a "ho" in the name.

In case you havn't noticed yet the majority doesnt want to change or alter the name, you are in the "weak" blockchain fork.

So, please leave the name alone unless you have good arguments. And dont forget that keyhotee's true power will come from what it will offer to its users, this is revolulotionary, so please stop trying to treat it like a normal mail service that needs a "good" name in order to succeed. Keyhotee is doomed to SUCCED and already has the best name IMO.

Apology for poor english.

Your English is not bad at all.  Just a few misspellings, no grammatical errors.

But to the point: It's actually not that simple!  Currently 28 people want to change the name (given the 3 choices, none of which were all that great IMHO) while 24 want to keep it.  So the majority actually wants to change it, they just didn't agree on what to change it to.

It's like we have 3-4 forks in a cryptocurrency each trying to change something different, their total hash power may be greater than the hashpower of the original blockchain but none of them can force their changes to the original blockchain.

That's not correct. 4 ppl prefer BitMail, 13 prefer BitKey, 12 prefer KeyMail, 25 prefer Keyhotee. This doesn't mean for example that the 13 that prefer BitKey would choose KeyMail over Keyhotee. Precisely: They just said, that in a given case (and the poll question assumes as it would be a given case; which contradicts the option for Keyhotee again), they prefer the Name they choose... 
Other problem: Keyhotee was added to the poll when half of the votes where given, which might have had an effect.
Other than that: 37 people here on the forum can hardly represent all AGS/PTS holders.

All of this is true.  It was somewhat of a flawed poll.  But I think it's telling that slightly over 1/2 of the people who come here, on the Bitshares forum, in the Keyhotee section, think that it should be changed from Keyhotee to something else.

What is that conclusion based on. It at least can not be based on this poll...
