    The faculty has been kicking around the idea of a name change to go with the new academy setup being hashed out this year.  As you can tell by cruising the internet, it isn’t easy to come up with a unique name that relates to the purpose of an academy.  But, since we have one alternative, we’d like to hear your ideas as well.  Please discuss as well as vote so we know why you chose as you did. 

    Note, this isn’t a binding vote, just a tool to help us see what you all think. 

    Thanks!

    *edited to add: We can easily set the site up so that anyone using this address will be pointed to a new web address if a new name is chosen.  So don’t worry about the logistics, just the word choice.  :-)

    I personally was thinking “Centre for Jedi Realist Studies”. Has more of a ring to it.

    That’s because you’re british ;-) 

    I think we should avoid anything that can be spelled differently in different styles of english.  lol

    Jedi Academy is classic…

    The longer name sounds a bit like a magnet school trying to sound like a private school?  heh heh…   

    I think since there is history to the Jedi Academy – the name should be maintained.

    But it also sounds like a role playing site – you have the Jedi Academy video games and such, and if you google Jedi Academy that’s what comes up.  I like having Jedi Realist in the name as it distinguishes us from the role playing sites.  It also isn’t as confusing, since Jedi Academy can be a generic term as well.

    Then why not make it the Jedi Realist Academy?

    lol, umm… perhaps because that’s already taken?  Which you know…we can’t just take someone else’s name, defeats the purpose of having a unique name.

    Ok, so yea, scratch that name….

    Guess I’ll need to think about it some more…( we could just nicely ask to use that name :maul) lol
