[all][tc] U Cycle Naming Poll
You can drop the Pinyin equivalents from the Mongolian/Russian options
when drawing up the poll. The Pinyin spelling for those options was
added to the Wiki document (by me) to match what was done for the GR
options. I found it important to note that the options which
conveniently began with U under the typical transliteration systems of
those languages only did so because those systems are, essentially,
not Chinese. But, all that said, it's pretty rare to see
Mongolian/Russian place names written in Pinyin so it would come off
as a bit of a confusing distraction to actually include the Pinyin
equivalents in the poll itself.
Now, my two cents about the poll options:
- I'm against using GR spelling... regardless of the actual history of
the use of GR, I've already seen some Chinese contributors state that
using GR is, at best, weird.
- I'm against using Mongolian/Manchu/Russian names... I do not see how
a name from one of these languages is at all representative of
- I'm against using arbitrary English words... "Train" was fine
because it represented the conference itself and something about our
community. "Umpire" and "Umbrella" don't represent anything.
- I'm in favor of using English words that describe something about
the host city or country... for example I think "Urban" is a great
because Shanghai is by certain metrics one of the most urban areas in
the world, China has many of the world's largest cities, etc.
Deciding whether certain options should even appear on the poll is
outside my responsibility.

The name critera are described in , and this time around we were looking for names starting with U associated with China. With some extra assistance from local community members (thank you to everyone who helped!), we have a list of candidate names that will go into the poll. Below is a subset of the names propsed, including those that meet the standard criteria and some of the suggestions that do not. Before we start the poll, the process calls for us to provide a period of 1 week so that any names removed from the proposals can be discussed and any last-minute objections can be raised. We will start the poll next week using this list, including any modifications based on that discussion.
