New World Name: The Reckoning

The last vote on our new world name is now closed. We had eight choices, and two stood out from the rest: Theta and Omega. But in the time-honored tradition of nerds, “there can only be one.” Or can there? OmegaTheta anyone? Meta? No no… as much as I have a fondness for mutant names, there must be a fight to the death. Commence!

Theta

– In its archaic form theta is used as a symbol for Earth.
– Alpha, beta, delta, and theta are brain signal frequencies.
– Its symbol is a circle with one or two lines through it, or alternatively a dot in the center. (eg. ϴ)
– In classical Athens, theta was used as a warning symbol of death.

Omega

– The great O. Mega means “great” or commonly “big”/”large”.
– Its symbol looks like a horseshoe, Ω, or as the lowercase “w”, ω. In Cyrillic it also has a round form: Ѻ.
– It has dozens of uses in physics, mathematics, and chemistry. I can only write a few here.
– In astronomy, it’s used to rank a star’s brightness within a constellation, or in the capitalized form, the universe’s density.
– In sociology, it’s used to refer to the lowest ranking member of a group.
– In relational databases it represents NULL, missing value.

    To those asking “why are we revoting?” Our previous polls had differing winners, depending on the type of voting system used. This gives those who did not vote for Omega or Theta in the single option vote an opportunity to recast their vote to one of the two more popular choices.

    Now that it has been determined that the new world will be named after a Greek letter and all current worlds (except the Outworld) are named after Greek letters, I think that it would be more consistent to use only Greek letters for any additional world names that may come up in the future.

    THE THETA ARMY SHALL RISE. FEAR NOT MY LEGION, EVEN IF WE LOSE, OUR CITY SHALL RISE FROM THE GROUNDS OF OMEGA. WE SHALL PREVAIL. OUR VOICES SHALL BE HEARD ACROSS SPACE AND TIME FOR EONS. JOIN ME, AND BECOME A PART OF THE GREAT NATION THAT IS TO COME. LONG LIVE THETA.

      I SHALL JOIN THE THETA ARMY! I just like the not so big change between how you say Alpha Delta and Gamma. I just like how i say it and how it looks. TheTa. I like the T’s. For some reason it sounds newer and right for a new world with awesome updates. THETA!
