Visa fullständig version : The vote on the name of the spanish party

2006-07-28, 00:18
It seems like the spanish vote fell on naming the party as a pirate party instead of internet users party, with the votes 100 to 75. At least that was what was the calculated sums on their voting page directly after the vote closing.

A very good thing if you ask me. We need a bit of likness on the marketing side to show that we are a coherent international movement.

Thanks for sharing this info with us.

from the standpoint of "marketing" resp. "corporate identity" :D a continious use of the same 3(4) letter acronym chooing would make sense.

Since the "mother of all pirats" in sweden uses PP as their acronym a sheme named on that would be usefull.

Like for all the PP to start with and then the corrosponding TLD.

Like the americans PPUS

(just a short thought after reading your info about the naming dispute [was there one?])

The problem with that in many countries with latin languages, is that that the PP acronym is used by the "partido popular" or similar. But I agree, PP followed by the the country acronym would be really nice. (why not use the official two letter country acronyms from ISO?)

Although the most important is that all the parties could actually be called a "pirate party".

BTW. Voting page can be found here: http://www.partidopirata.es/wiki/index.php?title=Nombre_del_partido automatic translation of it here: http://babelfish.altavista.com/babelfish/trurl_pagecontent?lp=es_en&trurl=http%3a%2f%2fwww.partidopirata.es%2fwiki%2findex.php%3ftitle%3dNombre_del_partido

Although the site seems to be down at the moment, perhaps overloaded?
