because, you know, some people might see it as weird for a flood of people from a totally different forum to come decide the outcome of this

If Cedar wanted Serenites to decide, she'd've put this there.

Perhaps this is biased because I'm anti-TEBOW (if I was new, I'd be like "ew football" and get turned away), but oh well because I feel like this has to be said.
And if TEB wins, I'm afraid that "TEB as a tool" will overshadow "TEB as a website" in people's minds.

Yeah, this. I would like our brigaders to have the ultimate say.

It seems like the most popular choices are FEB, TEB, and Eventiel.
At this rate, it will be called FEB, since I'm not that fond of TEB for Sqawl's reasons.
And if we go with Eventiel, I would be SO tempted to put mini cockatiel icons everywhere, which I'm not sure would appeal to everyone lol.

I'll close the poll tomorrow. ^_^

I prefer FEB, personally. It's a throwback to this forum, and since this forum is the only place to use the tool (With permission), having it as Eventiel takes away from the TeB centeredness of it.

Plus, "For Eventing Beginners" is very descriptive of who it will be mainly used by.

Because TEBOW isn't going to win, I gotta go with FEB.
Although, it'd be more idiot-friendly with instructions, but that's just my opinion. I need idiot-friendly instructions, hint hint.

My resume
Welcome to the Friend Zone, I am your tour guide today.

If you look to your left, you will see the Waterfall of Tears. These are the tears shed every day, by boys across the world. Do not drink the tears, because, in large amounts, they taste like salt water. This waterfall is our main source of income, as we sell these tears to witches interested in using children's tears in a potion. Remember this, it will be on the test.

If you look on your brochure, you'll see the amount of people who've escaped the Friend Zone permanently. Can't find it? Exactly.

On your right, you'll see our cardiologist, eating in the dining room located next to the generic-outdoor-place-to-play. I'll go ahead and tell you, although there's always an idiot or two who ignores me: No, he cannot fix broken hearts. He told me to warn you that the first... let's go with idiot, the first idiot who asks him to fix their broken heart will die from a heart attack.

Oh, we're arriving. Now, your sleeping areas are separated into male and female dormitories. You cannot be in the other genders' dormitory after dark, because the last thing we need is for everyone to be having nonstop sex. If you're homosexual, we ask that you refrain from nonstop sex. And if any of you masturbate, please clean it up; we don't want to.

This will conclude your tour of the Friend Zone.


A wall of text explaining why tanks don't fare well in Gauntlets:
The issue about tanks in Gauntlets is; they can happily mow down an army of regular units in regular gameplay. If their speed is on the low side, the enemies are generally wielding ridiculously heavy weapons anyways, putting them at nearly 0 speed. And your tank can probably just knock out any threat in a single blow anyways.
In the arena, that's not true.
In the arena, your enemy will happily pull out some silver weapons, and use them. The weapon triangle will only help slightly.That one point of damage isn't too important when the enemy is critting your for 60 in a single blow.
Your defense may be high, but the enemy isn't limited by such paltry things like "caps."
You see, the people in the arena are just various incarnations of Marcus.
Marcus is not limited by stat caps, he just chooses to hold back to give the enemy a chance.
However, in the arena, he lessens his restraint. He gives you but one concession: That he doesn't just pull out his wang and end your life. And he is not merciless, he lets you run. Of course, since when can tanks run? If Marcus wanted, he could chase you, but he feels bad for you, tank, who made the mistake of entering his vacation home.

Eventiel because my name's on the option and it sounds cool even though I don't know how exactly I relate to this.

In a few of your event hacking vids that I've watched, I could have sworn I heard some cockatiels squeaking in the background. Then again, I could be delusional.

I originally came up with the name Eventiel because "Event Budgie" sounded a bit off, and cockatiels (aka. "tiels") were the second parrot to come to mind.

Alright, cool. I was wondering when the poll was closing.
Can't wait to see which one you'll pick, Cedar!

Well, I gave some thought about the two top poll choices and which name I should go with...

At first, I was going to put up a second poll to decide between FEB and Eventiel since I was torn between the two, but judging by what people have posted, it probably would have been a fairly even split. So, I'm just gonna go with my gut.

I've decided I'm going to stick with my original name choice, Eventiel.

I have several reasons for this decision:

(1) From the name, you can immediately tell what the tool is for.
I know FEB stands for For Eventing Beginners/FE Event Builder and you can't get a much clearer description than that. But people will tend to use the abbreviation more, and if you're a beginner hacker just joining the FE hacking community, you won't immediately know what FEB is and what it's used for. With Eventiel, at least everyone will know it's related to events in some way.

(2) One of the biggest factors that made FEB appealing to me (and I'm guessing, for a lot of other members as well) was that it ties back to TEB's old roots, and having a name related to the roots of this forum would be really cool. However, only people who have hung around the forum for a while can really appreciate that reference and not many people (save for the super old members) can claim they've witnessed FEB firsthand... So the tie between FEB and TEB isn't all that apparent.
And typing TEB's FEB or FEB by TEB would be a bit odd. TEB's Eventiel/Eventiel by TEB sounds better imo.

(3) I like the name better.
Yeah, a really subjective reason, I know. It doesn't really help that the name was my idea in the first place. I was just unsure if anyone would approve of a ridiculous name like Eventiel. Now seeing as there is a decent amount of support for it, I'd like to stick with it.

Thanks for your input, everyone. I appreciate all your suggestions and support. To be honest, I was really, really tempted to name this FEB so the name wasn't something I had come up with myself...but in the long run, I think Eventiel's the more catchy name that will stick in people's heads.

That being said... If anyone has strong objections to this or if I'm missing any reason(s) to choose FEB over Eventiel, feel free to let me know.

I like both names. I guess I liked FEB more, because I was the one who came up with it (I didn't even know it tied in with ye olde TEB).

I do agree, Eventiel sounds catchier. I leave it to others to come up with more reasons, but eh, like I said; I like both names.

Geh. I didn't really like the name at all, because the "iel" doesn't really add anything. It's just part of the forum meme, which is Dessy's bird fetish, and saying FEB is too obscure because it's a forum meme shows that this matters so... yeah. People know what FEditor is and NM and FEXP, so FEB makes much more sense to me for the long run.

But hey, you made it, you pick the name!
