Why does everyone want change. Same in RL - no one can keep a name the same! Leave it as it is or we'll basically be losing our history.

I'm not saying that we have to change it, merely that we should have a poll to determine if that's the name most people like...

Leave it as it is or we'll basically be losing our history.
No we won't. We'll still have had the SPi Scho-op and such...

Think about Mars, When countrys went though a revolution they very often changed there very identity and lost there history. We are not losing our history (not that we have much of one) just letting the past be.

PS: the comment about not having much history is sadly true as we have only had it a few mounths not even a year so it hasent had a birhday so how can it have much of a history

How can you say that? We have lots of history. The people gone, the strands, all our builds. It's like saying I had no history until I went to Secondary School. I didn't exist or matter before then. It isn't true!

The thing is that 'Scho-Op/Second Steps combined building' is rather a mouthful. We can't call it Second Steps without ignoring the Scho-Op, and we can't call it the Scho-Op without ignoring Second Steps. Instead, we're taking the rather typical beaurocratic technique of putting it to a vote and possibly ignoring both. Has anyone else read 'The Trial' by Franz Kafka, by any chance. lol

On the more general debate-of course everyone wants change. Humanity lives in constant hope of something better. Without this hope our lives have no meaning as there is nothing to aim for. We must progress and change, otherwise we will stagnate, and stagnation leads to seperation of people and their power, as apathy destroys the desire to have power-for what use is power when you do not want to use it? This also means that those who get power want it for power's sake, and this leads to change indeed, but change towards authoritarianism. This will, of course, prompt people to hope for something better, and desire change again.

Please enter it on the 'Scho-Op/Second Steps building' thread on the Building and Planning Permission child board.

The people who end up in power are always the people who you least want to be in power (so claims THHGTTG :P)

Let us at least see the design that Baso has submitted-I'm sure that the poll can still end at the end of the week, so an extra design won't make that much difference, surely. We want everyone to have a say in this, so we want as many designs submitted as possible, and that includes Baso's design. After all-now that the Scho-Op/Second Steps building has been delayed so long, we may as well use the time.

I'm assuming that this poll is actually not the real one - and that the one in the Building &PP board is the real one.

That being the case we ought to archive this one ...

I think I am going to go on a mad archiving spree very shortly ...  >:D

That is correct, and it would be useful if you archived this thread, and indeed the other ones referring to receiving planning permission for the Scho-Op. I really ought to be more dedicated to cleaning up the B+PP child board, myself...
