The official Puzzling chat was named "The Green Llama" a year ago, after a public contest where everyone could suggest and vote his favourite name.
It took a year for us to realize that we don't want a green llama in our chat. Why? Try to google "the green llama" and you'll find this insane creature:
enter image description here

The Green Thing is definitely inappropriate for our chat, so we decide to rename it.

A new contest is open from June 2nd, 2015 until June 9th, 2015.
Rules below:

  • The winner is the name with most upvotes. Downvotes won't be considered, we'll only count upvotes!
  • You can upvote as many names as you want.
  • If you want to add a name to the list, feel free to do it. You can't suggest more than one new name. No profanities, insults, offensive stuff (you know).
  • No edits are allowed if you already have upvotes.

Note: this is also an experiment of Puzzling polls, so please be serious and respect the rules.


The winner is The Sphinx's Lair (by @Emrakul)

Final scores (as of June 9th):

  1. The Sphinx's Lair (11 votes)
  2. The Riddlers' Den (7 votes)
  3. Deep Thought (5 votes)
  4. The Green Llama (5 votes)
  5. Puzzlers' Plaza (5 votes)
  6. The Turquoise Tortoise's Voice (3 votes)
  7. What's so great about llamas? (3 votes)
  8. The Hue Manatee (2 votes)
  9. The Mauve Llama (2 votes)
  10. The Official Puzzling Chat (1 vote)

  • $\begingroup$ "You can't suggest more than one new name" - in a single answer, or does this mean one user can't suggest more than one new name? $\endgroup$ Jun 2, 2015 at 9:40
  • $\begingroup$ 1 name = 1 answer. You can't post more than one personal proposal, but you can vote for all the others' names you like. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @leoll2 People without as much rep as us can't see them! Once the polls have closed, you should probably write all the UV-DV totals into the question. $\endgroup$ Jun 3, 2015 at 19:38
  • $\begingroup$ @randal'thor I'll do, thanks for the advice. $\endgroup$

The Green Llama

Vote for this if you don't want to change the name.

That Green Thing is pretty cute, no? ;)

    $\begingroup$ I thought it was "The Turquoise Tortoise's Voice"? Or did you change your mind, since it was too hard to spell? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @mmking It's true, I forgot a piece. Editing the name now would violate my own rules, unless you declare that you're the one who voted this post and would vote "the turquoise tortoise's voice" too. $\endgroup$
    – leoll2
    Jun 2, 2015 at 15:00
  • $\begingroup$ Okay. I declare that I voted it, and would not be so mean as to take back my vote just because "'s voice" was appended to the end. Does that work? $\endgroup$

    Jun 2, 2015 at 15:05
  • $\begingroup$ @mmking Seems right. If anyone has objections, I'm ready to withdraw my proposal. $\endgroup$

The Official Puzzling Chat

Since it is the main chat, why not make it easy to find for new users? We can get creative with all the other chat names, and of course, also in our puzzles and answers.
