I can't believe noone has suggested "OMG" for Order of Mobius Group (as there are so many private groups now).

"OMG Fenrock" - it's what pirates say when they see me.

It's been decided. OMS. Order of Mobius Ship. I really don't understand why anyone would want to make it more complicated by adding what the ship's purpose is. I have no clue who the Knights of Mobius are.
The minor faction in the game is The Order of Mobius. Not the Mobius Group. Knights of Mobius or anything else. The name of the faction in Azrael, Njiri, Cardea, etc. is The Order of Mobius. OMS - Order of Mobius Ship. Like... USS - United States Ship. HMS - Her Majesty's Ship. All this crap you's want to add about the ships purpose goes in the ID. Like OMS "Ship Name" and THEN add all those identifiers in the ID plate MC, MF, ME - ####.
You folks are confusing and combining things.
Your ships name will have OMS "Name." Your ship ID will have all that other crap in its designation before a number.
OMS. I don't understand why this is still being debated.

Commanders are welcome to call their ships what ever they like, and use what ever Order designation they so choose.

Okay. So, Commanders are certainly welcome to call their ships whatever they like (where did that come from?). And, what was the purpose of this poll and discussion if everyone is going to use whatever Mobius designation they want anyway?
If you want uniformity... the vote would seem to be for OMS, Order of Mobius Ship. As, in the game, in Open, every Mobius Group, Solo, etc. we are, in-game, The Order of Mobius.
And, as what pretty much every navy I've ever known uses... OMS "Ship Name," and then all the identifiers, such as combat, exploration, etc., are in the ID.
So, I'm more than aware people can do whatever they want. However, again, my question would be why bother with the poll and discussion if nobody is going to adhere to it anyway?

It's an opinion poll and not an order. I wanted to see if we the majority of players were interested in adopting a certain prefix without having it forced on them.

As it turns out, there were many varied opinions on what the prefix should be. Since no consensus was reached, we've all gone and done our own thing.
