# Let’s choose a definite name for our favourite molecule, in case he gets elected as a mod!

We all know this guy who nominated themself for a moderator position in the upcoming election.[1] Over the course of , we got to know him under a number of different names.[2]

Notice the comments under his nomination post over at the election site. Of if you’re too lazy to follow the link, here are the important ones:

If we vote for you, can we choose your new name on meta? ;) – Jan Oct 3 at 21:29

@Jan I've decided I'll keep one name if I ever become a mod on any site. So OK. – Rubisco Oct 4 at 14:54

Since the actual election will happen soon, it is vital we start proposing names[3] — and this is the thread to do this!

Add an answer suggesting a name for You-know-who. Vote on those you like and don’t vote on those you don’t like. Additionally, to make counting easier, please only add one name per answer. All names should adhere to the be-nice policy and, of course, Rubisco has the right to veto a suggestion.

This closes when the election closes[4] and if Rubisco is not elected, the entire thing is moot.

Notes:

[1]: If you didn’t: welcome to meta! Make yourself a home!

[2]: Including, but not limited to MAR, MAR spelt with funny characters, Ina, TIPS, DEAD, RuBisCO, …

[4]: Open to other suggestions, if you feel timeframe x be so much better.

• I'd like to propose "MAR spelt with funny characters".

• One downside to that though @Ortho. I used to be all Unicody until someone on meta.ELL complained that I'm not pingable on the mobile site. Oct 10 '16 at 18:19
• @Rubisco No, I literally mean: "MAR spelt with funny characters". Eh, it's not a serious proposal, which is why I didn't post it as an answer ^^

• @Ortho that . . . is the most beautiful words you ever uttered. I want it as an answer. NOW. Oct 10 '16 at 18:24
• I'd like to close this primarily opinion based. Oct 12 '16 at 6:01
• Even though I didn't make it, I will change my name to the one in the most upvoted answer. Oh that's right. IT'S MINE. Oct 18 '16 at 20:35

Since y'all like to play with my initials, what about just my initials?

I propose "MAR".

• Somehow this sounds boring =C

• @Jan mods are boring. (Don't tell anyone I said that) Oct 14 '16 at 9:18
• Pffsh, your usernames are like ultra-secure passwords: you can't use the same one more than once. Oct 15 '16 at 23:20
• @hBy2Py interestingly enough, "MAR" has never been my name. There has been some (one?) unicode name(s) which resembled MAR, but that doesn't count. Oct 16 '16 at 14:30
• Pfah, @Rubisco skates free on a technicality!! Oct 16 '16 at 19:04
• @M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ When did you insert the dots in your name? Changed from "MAR" to "M.A.R."? Mar 17 '18 at 6:43
• @Gau just when I was about to change name. If I were MAR, pinging me would have also pinged Mart. Mar 17 '18 at 7:54
• @M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ ah true! Mar 17 '18 at 7:58

Keeping with the chemical theme: PolyMARthacrylate

• PolyMethAcRylate. ;)

• I will read it like Poly-Martha-Crylate. Oct 11 '16 at 17:16
• @pH13 -- Busting up your proposed names since 1888 Oct 11 '16 at 17:17

Metal Argonide

In case you didn’t immediately realise, the chemical abbreviation for that would be $\ce{MAr}$.

The many named Mod

in analogy to the many faced god.

Master MAR.

This is in reference and homage to Master Shake of Aqua Teen Hunger Force fame :)

• "MAR", or "Master MAR"? The mastery bit is Yodaish Oct 10 '16 at 12:02
• M$^{2}$, maybe?

• Can we do that? It prolly gets ugly with Unicode. Oct 10 '16 at 18:24

• Considering it. Oct 10 '16 at 19:19
• Or MARderator. That gets it right.
