Out of over 50 suggestions "each submission earned one vote".. only 3 rose to the top to challenge the term "auto-lockouts" with more than one simple vote.

After thinking about it, lets let everyone have more than one vote... there's more than one good answer and this gives a little lattitude to swing the vote one way or another if one choice is having a struggle that you like in the finals...

We have 30 days to choose, unless we decide to kill it earlier.
votes are not public so no one sees who voted what.

Please enter your vote realizing the objective is not not only choose a name that flows well when speaking, but represents the new innovation YaV1 has accomplished with its "lockouts". While the term is already coined and the idea is a good one, YaV1 does not remove visual alerting of the signal to be blocked out but rather mutes it only with a revolutionary new way to accomplish this that's unique to the V1 with its two horns.

It would be nice to either leave it the same which everybody already knows and understands, or we could choose a name that brings new light either to what we are really doing or at the least coining a new name to make it unique for YaV1....

Franky the developer naturally gets the final vote but has already voiced he's good with changing the name if that's what the community would like to see.

Thx for participating in this fun project to make YaV1 a little bit more innovative to match its function.

I voted to keep it as auto-lockout.

Not that I'm totally against changing it, but since we are all already used to the term lockout from both Escort and the current YaV1, I think regardless if it gets changed or not most of us will still refer to it as lockouts.

For that reason I would say it's best to just keep it the same.

I like YaMute or YaLockout, it matches the theme of the app and is pretty easy to understand and it makes a new name for its self all on its own

frankout is definitely not a good term :):D


I knew that would drive you nuts!

That one was just for fun, too bad it's one of the most popular!

But you get to veto so at least people can make multiple choices.

You know what my vote is. :)

A name that just STUCK out never came across in any suggestions,.. as such I think keeping it the same is best "for now". It can always change later on if anything becomes an issue in any way. And the thread wasn't a waste of time if Yav1 keeps the Auto-Lockouts name.. as YaV1 now has a good list to go through to switch the name if it ever becomes a "Must do" and not a "be nice to do". :)

IMO it would make VR feel better if they ever wanted to associate themselves with it if it was changed although it's just a name, but it attracts less scoff

Good point. Would be a significant change if Valentine Research formally associated with YaV1 -- as that for many people in the world would open the door to wanting money.. but Francky not so much. Although,.. I honestly believe Francky's work is worth ten's of thousands of dollars to Valentine.. perhaps more in the long run,.. especially as Lockouts are pretty close to perfected and definitely better than any other system out there (safety wise).. and when A.I. gets going,.. another game changer. This stuff never ceases to impress me even the longer I am used to it. We talked the other day,.. my enthusiasm for it was evident lol.. And it was amazing we could talk for so long about CM's lol! But I digress..

I'm sure if VR initiates interest in association,.. A name will be the last of the worries -- I mean for instance.. Smartmute is just as good as any. Names for this stuff really are like Brands, and they , after a while, just get stuck in your head and it would seem wierd to call it anything else. I mean what is a "Pepsi" ? There are so many trade marks that don't even make sense, but are lodged in our brands and equate to X product.. or Y functionality.. :)

Looks like so far "keeping as is" is winning by a landslide.....

May be best since all the literature is already fashioned that way... to change the word now could be confusing when folks read old threads etc.

You guys want to let this thread die out with its intended timeout.

Or you want to go ahead and close it for business?

I would close it, by now it's obvious what people prefer.
And thanks again for taking the time to ask and consider people's opinions.
:)
