Virus Name Voting!

You may have been spending time over on the Strain Tracking board, watching viruses progress - but now it's time to pick some official names! Head on over to the POLLS now and use your one vote wisely! It can't be changed, and the majority of votes will determine the winner.

We'll be closing the polls before the last stage of each virus hits (in around 24 hour time, or noon tomorrow), so vote while you can!

I can't believe that Trepaination isn't winning. Come on guys, that's hilarious!

Grosseries was fun but I don't know how it managed to stick up to this point. Root Riot was the only one that made sense to me after stage 2 of Green.

As for Red, the names available were okay until after stage 2 as well.
I still stick to Sauna Slough for White cause who knows what the next stage will bring.
Yellow, I'm thinking it could still be Veinison but leaning towards Buzzkill/Botfly. Hard to tell honestly.

I love love Steamed Buns, just makes me laugh. And quite like Vegetabrawl.

Can't say I'm a fan of most of the top choices at the moment!

@Mackenzi - Aw, that sucks. Thanks for the info though. :D

I don't hate Buzzkill but I feel like it could be either the yellow or red at this point.

@Speiro Staff can delete if it's 'cheating'?

I wish I'd voted for Steamed Buns now...

Frieda

The vegetables scared me, so I didn't vote for them, I wanted bacon or one of those greasy meat sticks that you get at the gas station.

Speiro

Would it be "cheating" to ask about the results of the Green poll before I vote? I'm team anything-but-grosseries and don't want to throw my vote away on something that stands no chance. :P

Clouds

I want Root Riot! Grosseries was funny until the wee little buggers started biting people. Which if that name get chosen I still want little biting veggies for my HA they are so cute!
1

thatshamefulhabit

Why is "Grosseries" so popular? It's not original and it's NOT EVEN GROSS! UUuuuugh
2

Frenchi

'grosseries' is decent but isn't that already the name of those ~edgy~ shopkins spinoff toys? also how is 'lobotomeat' better than 'mindscrew'...

Ang

I feel more strongly about Steamed Buns than anything I've ever cared about in my entire life

Mackenzi

Also, I know I’ve been on Subeta for over a decade but I can’t even with that age poll lmao. It’s been a while since I thought about being a teen. Both my life and subeta has changed so much. XD
2

Mackenzi

Grosseries is the best name for any of them, good job whoever thought of that!

God, that red strain is probably the most repulsive thing I’ve seen on subeta. It’s genuinely hard to look at. I can’t wait to see what the plushie version will be next year ahahaha.

Chrysariel

Loved Grosseries! lol

DarkVixen28

Voted on each except Red.

Over the years I've found some of the strains and their various stages a bit creepy or unsettling and never had an issue with the other gross items on site....

...expect Red. I just can't. Stage 3 onward for Red give me that 'you're gunna get sick' pre-gag feeling when I look at them. Sorry, Subeta ;.;

@Jess I didn't know :o Thank You for telling me *hugs* I'll post on the form now.

@Ankou After you sign up for a virus, you have to post on the forums to receive bites. Otherwise, it will take three days to get infected for viruses that were released prior to this year. If you post on that thread I linked you to, we can bite and infect you in less than 20 minutes.

@Jess
I still have this Message on the VIP page: Thanks for participating in the Volunteer Infection Program!
You've still got some time to wait, but you will receive an event once you've received your chosen virus!

So I have NO virus.

Jess

@Ankou Can you post over here: Topic: [Bite Me Directory] #2 No Victims Left Behind so I can bite you? We can’t access your bite link unless you post in the Survival forums now.

I'd love it if I could finally get VIP event that says I now have my Playful, Whimsical virus, been waiting for nearly 2 days now. I dislike this event now :(

PaisleyAnn

Voted for Yellow it was the only one I was fairly sure of (despite my vote being less liked). Will vote again later today once I see another stage.

Just an FYI to everyone here:

Trpaination is a really clever pun on "trepanation". Aka an old surgical technique of drilling a hole in the skull

@abel

I had the Green strain before curing. I know it's not a big deal for everyone else but it nearly feels like a phobia what I feel when reading the obvious winner name in the poll so curing was my only choice now even though I kinda liked stage 5 of the virus.

No bad "hives" pun for the yellow one? :(

So I guess the most voted option for Red competes with Meatspinner and Mom's Spaghetti, right?

A big thank you to staff for hosting the poll! It's definitely been an adventure over in the tracking thread- 100 pages worth of name suggestions.

(And in regards to Mom's Spaghetti, it got maybe 5 votes in the last day or so. Mindscrew and Lobotomeat had 10x that each, and the other two simply took the lead of the remainders during the final hours.)

Voted! I was really torn between "Grosseries" and "Root Riot" for Green. Either one would be perfect. XD

VERY interesting options! Had to vote! All of them sounded so very nasty and amazing and I love them! ♥♥♥

I like this. I've never been able to help with naming as by the time I'd enter the thread it always seemed like everything already got a name in the first few minutes. Why yes, I'm still bitter over a few of the names ;) lol
