"We've taken feedback from the first poll and have used those suggestions to create a new one. Come vote one more time to help Sherlock pick a new name for their project."

Hm... good idea. But I think it is a little bit too far fetched. Will you explain every average user what an Astrocyte is? I don't think so. However, if you have a clear name, one can easily imagine what is behind it.

True, in the 3rd poll, there are also some more obscure names. On the other side, we had to make a choice for the candidate names, and this chose has now been made. Sorry you are a little bit too late...
