You relax. If you wish to ignore me on this, so be it, but our sample size for this poll is not going to get us anywhere. So what if it shows that "Woot" is the favorite title when we'll likely have less than 10 people voting? It doesn't make "Woot" any less of a bad title. I'm really down on it and never much liked it in the first place, but went along because I didn't really care and thought it could work. Since the issues with it were raised by Tom, an outsider, now that he sees how the script has taken shape, and the opportunity is there to replace it, I would like to act on that. I agree with his reasoning. Think about it, we can't even use it the right way to get "cred" (w00t!) and it's a word that may fall out of favor or disuse at any time, making the film seem outdated or old. I just don't get why you're stuck on it so badly versus what else is available.

I wish you'd quit trying to disqualify it, Bill. Even Tom said he hasn't ruled it out. Just relax. If people don't like the title, we'll scrap it.

Also, the other forums I'm posting it on haven't been "tainted" by hearing the title yet, so they should be very revealing.

I suppose if for some reason

I suppose if for some reason "Playing with Power" is out, it could always be "Power Play" and then the subtitle.

Also, "Woot" really shouldn't be an option at this point. We should really allow people to pick from one of the new titles, then pit it against Woot. The sample size is too small to allow "Woot" at this point because we already know two to three people who will pick it.

We should also open up the sample size to other sites and Facebook, but only after correcting the "Woot" thing.
