Is the name "Computer Gaming Addicts Anonymous" changing? Or was it OOMG name which might change?

When/where will this be discussed? I'd like to hear what others have to say, and might have something to contribute myself.

thanks,
Linda

I think some fellows have feelings about the name of CGAA being wrong and needs to be VGAA. I'm personally opposed to this (VGA = Video Graphics Array), as this is too similar to a name of technology used in gaming.

Also, the CGAA name is established already. Also, consoles, phones, hand-helds, etc. All are computers. Just my two cents; I won't be voting on this in the OOMG business meeting, as I'm also a member of another group, and as a matter of fact a group representative of that group.

Hey Linda,

Been trying to talk to folks after meetings about this. There are quite a number of reasons for making the change; but we are still not near making any kind of final decision, yet. I got sick this past week and had to stop doing this announcement; but will be resuming the rounds again this coming week.
