"Ugh. Puns. Again. This is part of why I hate this community."

Guess it's time to go back to neo then, eh? Since you don't like when people have fun.
People need to lighten up. Good Lord.

So glad Grosseries won, I love it. I wouldn't have been able to look at "Vegetabrawl" without constantly thinking of Vegeta.

I'm glad my Mindscrew suggestion got onto the poll, but the better name won, because after Stage 3 it was clear there was going to be an emphasis on meat. I'm going to spend at least one more day salty about Grosseries, though.

Grosseries is the most boring name, I don't get why people like it so much. Food Fright is way better. I'm gonna call it that anyway.

Only one of the ones I voted for got chosen. I am going to call the strains by the names I like and not the official ones.

Idk why so many hate it, I love bad puns. They fill my heart with goo.

I've been gone and haven't watched my strain until now and I'm laughing so hard. Are rats seriously trying to reconstruct the meat into a person? lmfao

I chose yellow (Buzzkill) and I still haven't started to show signs... meanwhile other people are finishing up their strains :/ Is there something wrong with mine somehow? I feel like I should've seen SOMETHING happen by now...

Disappointed for Lobotomeat instead of Mindscrew or Meatgrinder, but oh well. At least The Vapors won out, as did Buzzkill. And Grosseries is funny enough that I was torn between it and Vegetabrawl anyway, hahahahaha.

When will they be added to the wardrobe so we can remove them?

I had thought that the name for green would be something like what was chosen and I"m glad it was.

@Jess - if there's an accidental British spelling, you can be sure I'm behind it! (Being English and all) - I've fixed the news post to the correct 'The Vapors' now :)

@Elena You can't bite with this year's strains until you reach Stage 6 which takes a couple of days because viruses progress one stage every 14 hours or so. You are currently Stage 3 Buzzkill and you should be progressing to Stage 4 soon.

Unfortunately, the cache is not updating like it is supposed to so it is really difficult to see yourself progress. Re-saving your HA via the wardrobe using the Wear Now button can work (though apparently it takes a lot of tries), clearing your browser cache is another option...

Those names gave me a chuckle. Good job.

I heard people say it might help to save your avatar again in the Wardrobe. The "Wear this outfit"-option.

@Butterflies I realize that, but last I checked, staff were actively removing British spellings on the site for consistency so it is odd that it would suddenly pop up. Chocolate has been spelling it officially as ‘The Vapors’ the entire time.

i like all of these except for the one for White but oh well

@Jess

That is the UK spelling of it ;)

@Sirius
i picked yellow.. yesterday morning

in the VIP page still says, Unfortunately, your strain hasn't progressed far enough for your bite to be effective, but try again later!

@Amber Can you make sure it’s ‘The Vapors’ and not ‘The Vapours’? Not sure how that extra U snuck in there.

I can live with most of them, but you'll never win me round on 'Lobotomeat'. There were so many better suggestions.

And thanks to @Drusilla @Chocolate @13thMaiden and @Scorpio for running the Tracking thread. <3

Hooray for Grosseries! I really liked Root Riot too but they were pretty much even.

RIP Steamed Buns. I like them all but The Vapours (even though I didn't vote for Grosseries, but that's fine)

chookie

ahh so close to my Steamed Buns suggestion getting into site vernacular ^u^ the thrill of even getting shortlisted was still super exciting~ (and i'm still freaking out white turned into an actual steamed bun lol wot)

thanks for the poll and congrats to the new names :)

Skree

^^ I really like that it was changed to Vapours, as "The Vapours" is an old southernism that describes a myriad of conditions, including flushing of the skin and fainting. LOL

Voted for all minis the vapors so that's pretty cool almost all
