You state that these things have been confusing for a long time but in reality Sac was Sacramento until a year ago. It was brought up, looked into, and changed to "Sac" because it was a branding wish or whatever...but it would not change the ability for people to look for them and it was shorter. I deal with spreadsheets, the longer the name the worse it is for me so if I have a shorter option that can still easily be found when putting together a ballot then this is what I go with.
I seriously have hundreds of hours into building and maintaining this list. This list then has to get moved around and put into at least 5 or 6 different places so that all things calculate out or verify properly. In other words a single change for one name is changed in many places so I don't take them lightly or change them without thought. UC Davis and Sac and Cal Poly were all looked into and checked with the schools to see if what we were doing was correct either by public statements or asking them via email.
But moreover PWO I am getting a bit of a snitty and wiseass type tone from your replies on the matter. Not sure what or why this is happening? Maybe you felt like challenging clenz or whatever but one thing you should always keep at the front of your mind on things like this is that I am checking in and trying to make sure we have it right, and easy for the voters due to how WE use the naming on here and on each name change we have had debated input by the fans of that team and we have looked into it.
But if there is an idea with all this in mind that we can do better I really want to hear it. I am not changing the Cal schools. I think there was some controversy over UC Davis last year or the year before but I really can't remember what it was all about but possibly dropping the "UC" part which I don't think would serve the voters well at this point and it is how they are listed on the BSC site and most schedules I believe.
