I removed the poll. The Education Freedom Organization, or EFO, by popular vote, is now the official name of this organization. So instead of calling it "The organization" we can call it EFO now. Fucking finally.

We have also officially decided that edfreedom.org will be the location of the website for EFO... Now it's onto construction.

GO TO THE LAST PAGE OF THIS THREAD TO VIEW THE CURRENT DISCUSSION, EVERYTHING LEADING UP TO THAT IS HISTORY; THIS OPENING POST, HOWEVER, IS DYNAMIC, AND I WILL UPDATE IT AS THINGS PROGRESS.

So, EFO it is?


Re: I propose the creation of an anti-school activist group - V2 - Blobthe15 - 05-10-2011 11:02 AM

Well I dunno, because EFO is alot like UFO, but sure I like it.

I don't think that will pose that big of a problem, really... Now, as for the URL:

EFO.com, EFO.org, and EFO.net are all taken. edfreedom.org isn't though. I'm thinking we're going to want .org at the end, seeing as how we're an organization and all. What do you think?


Re: I propose the creation of an anti-school activist group - V2 - Crow - 05-11-2011 06:19 AM

edfreedom sounds good, and it's more informative than EFO for people who don't know what the letters stand for.. so i think it's perfect


Re: I propose the creation of an anti-school activist group - V2 - Absnt - 05-12-2011 05:12 AM

I think it's pretty good too... Anyone else want to weigh in? It's everyones decision...


Re: I propose the creation of an anti-school activist group - V2 - Chibi Moon Beam - 05-12-2011 02:32 PM

Maybe the YLF (Youth Liberation Front)?

That sounds pretty cool, but pretty much everyone decided on EFO...

What does everyone think about YLF? I think it sounds like it encompasses all youth rights, instead of just education reform / recreation.

On another note:

I hate school, you hate school, we all fucking hate school; so why aren't we getting this thing underway and starting to get shit done?

Theres been ALF, and ELF already, But I do like the sound of YLF.


Re: I propose the creation of an anti-school activist group - V2 - LightAbyssion - 05-23-2011 04:04 AM

Bumpity bump... So we're still stuck on the name? I think 'EFO' is fine if this is a school reform group. However, a giant liberation of youth in general has its appeal. It's a matter of how endeavourous we are. Are we going to be "all or nothing" or realistic and pace ourselves? I'm fine either way, but I think most of you would pick the latter, since that was how this idea got started: simply changing schools.

Regardless, fixing schools is the first step in liberating youth, so it doesn't matter what name we pick. 'EFO' makes more sense, while 'YLF' would attract more people. Let's just move on from the name by the start of June. Next step would be... a site, right? How's that going?


Re: I propose the creation of an anti-school activist group - V2 - aaaaaaasd - 05-23-2011 04:13 AM

How about the Cool Cats Crew? Wait, that name probably isn't cool or hip enough, so lets change the C's to K's.

Know what?

I've got a piece of good hosting available till October -- and renewable thereafter for like 10 bucks a month, which is highly manageable. And a domain is only about 10 dollars a year.

Provided the police doesn't come visiting with barbarous intentions, I could let you use the host. It's not like it'll hog a lot of resources or anything. And you'd get a free site design with it.


Re: I propose the creation of an anti-school activist group - V2 - Absnt - 05-24-2011 06:14 AM

The whole thing with YLF is that it would be working towards virtually the same goals as NYRA... We don't need 2 competing youth rights agencies to split the group, what we need is a group focusing on school that is also compatible and friendly with NYRA which is the general youth-rights group...

That's what I'm thinking. And faby, that'd be pretty cool. If we go with EFO, would it be like "edfreedom.org" or something? Don't do anything yet, though, till we are definite on the name.

Maybe student liberation front? Or something... EFO's alright for me though. Actually, student liberation front sounds kind of sexy... lol


Re: I propose the creation of an anti-school activist group - V2 - Absnt - 05-26-2011 09:38 AM

Alright everyone, re-vote with the added poll options.


Re: I propose the creation of an anti-school activist group - V2 - TheOmegaJuggalo - 05-27-2011 08:31 AM

I'm late to the party.
When's the site coming up?


Re: I propose the creation of an anti-school activist group - V2 - Absnt - 05-27-2011 08:36 AM

We still haven't decided on the name lol... There's a revote in effect. Also, voice your opinions on the names so I know if anyone is just leaving their vote there or if everyone is just ignoring this thread or something. Cool


Re: I propose the creation of an anti-school activist group - V2 - TheOmegaJuggalo - 05-27-2011 09:18 AM

I'm pretty indifferent, as I feel like all of the suggested names are fitting and sound good. I went ahead and chose Educational Freedom Organization, after some consideration. I cast my vote for it in the poll, also... so, yea. I'm in! Biggrin


Re: I propose the creation of an anti-school activist group - V2 - Absnt - 06-01-2011 06:49 PM

Hey guys, have you made a decisi --- Nope.

Bump


Re: I propose the creation of an anti-school activist group - V2 - TheOmegaJuggalo - 06-02-2011 05:34 AM

My 2cents - Our name doesn't matter nearly as much as our actions. The current poll has 80% of the votes toward the EFO. Why not just go with that?

While the name may not matter to us, who have already subscribed to the ideas, it will matter a lot while we are trying to recruit new activist to help fight. I feel that it is absolutely essential that the name be appealing and be able to attract as many students as possible.


Re: I propose the creation of an anti-school activist group - V2 - TheOmegaJuggalo - 06-03-2011 09:37 AM

Thinking from that perspective, I believe that for the most part, students tend to think education = school, and they don't like school. I like Youth Liberation Front, but I'm worried about how we'd be perceived considering we focus on school, and not as much on other issues like NYRA.


Re: I propose the creation of an anti-school activist group - V2 - UltraRobot - 06-03-2011 11:57 AM

The names with "Front" seem like they might scare some people away. I think EFO is our best bet. Smile


Re: I propose the creation of an anti-school activist group - V2 - Absnt - 06-03-2011 12:04 PM

Quote:TheOmegaJuggalo's text.
Agreed. YLF makes us sound like a youth rights group moreso than a anti-school group, which isn't all bad, but NYRA already exist and all of that.

UltraRobot Wrote:The names with "Front" seem like they might scare some people away. I think EFO is our best bet. Smile

Front seems sort of militant, in a way, which is kind of why it's appealing... I guess it could scare people away as well. ELF, for now, gets my vote but any one of them are decent, I think.

So yeah, pro's and cons. What do you think?

Yea, I can see the "front" thing being an issue. Like I've said, the name doesn't matter so much to me, but my opinions are here anyway. I say if we don't get a solid response within the next couple of days, we go with the poll results.

Fuck it, the poll isn't really an accurate show of votes since the other options weren't originally up there, but if people aren't going to revote, or already have revoted and aren't speaking up, we'll just have to go with EFO. Fine by me. I say, we hold a meeting, make it final, and discuss and put up the website within the next week or two.


Re: I propose the creation of an anti-school activist group - V2 - The Desert Fox - 06-07-2011 02:05 PM

Fuck it, just go with EFO.


Re: I propose the creation of an anti-school activist group - V2 - Rebel_320 - 06-07-2011 02:09 PM

Lets just go with EFO and move on.


Re: I propose the creation of an anti-school activist group - V2 - Nale Dixon - 06-11-2011 02:03 PM

Animal Liberation Front, National Front...


Yeah, go with EFO.


Re: I propose the creation of an anti-school activist group - V2 - Absnt - 06-11-2011 02:45 PM

K, fuck it, EFO it is.


Re: I propose the creation of an anti-school activist group - V2 - Absnt - 06-14-2011 10:21 AM

So, what should the URL be? Edfreedom.org or something?
