A few days ago, Windows Phone Central came to you, our dedicated audience, with the proposal of some new names for the site as we seek to expand our coverage heading into the Windows 10 era. At the time, we had three proposals, including Windows One, Windows United or 'something else'.
Let us check out the results and move to the next stage with a new survey!
The results are quite interesting. Fifty-three percent of you preferred Windows One, with only twenty-percent for Windows United. A full twenty-eight percent were happy with neither, wanting us to come up with something else.
Today, we are coming back with a few more choices to try to understand what you think we should do. Yes, it is poll time!
As we mentioned last time, the results of these audience surveys are non-binding. However, we do use the results to get a pulse on what you think works best. We also read your comments and suggestions, which is why we are offering a new choice, along with the winning Windows One name in today's poll.
For safe measure, we also include "Redefine 'P' in WPCentral.com" in the poll that is, unfortunately, vague. The problem we have in redefining 'P' is coming up with something that does not sound atrocious e.g. Platform, Pro?
Why don't you call it…
Before the poll, just a quick heads up on why we are using some choices and not others. For one, Microsoft owns the Windows and Microsoft names, so in using them we are taking a risk from a legal standpoint. Along the same lines, we cannot just rename the site to something new if we also do not own the corresponding domain. Therefore, the reason for Win Central versus Windows Central is inquiries into us acquiring the latter have gone unanswered.
With all of that out of the way, it is now time for you to make your voice heard. Once again, we are keeping the results hidden to avoid influencing the results. IP and cookies block repeat voting and it the poll remains open for twenty-four hours starting now.
