The Fully and Rapidly Reusable Launch Party Thread
Mild modification suggestion-

>The fully and Rapidly Reusable Falcon Party Thread<

- Because you can party longer than just the launch
- Because Falcon Party makes it sound like its a Falcon party.

The Fully and Rapidly Reusable Launch Party Thread

Chris obviously went to bed in UKLand, but we're at the suggestion close point and this won. Chris will change the thread title when he's back. Barrie has the right to go with the modified suggestion above.

 A single never ending party thread will surely test the limits of the forum backend at some point.

Sounds painful (and messy) ... ;D

Winning name (Barrie's) now the thread title. He has the right to request the modified version, but that's his call as he's the winner. :)

Remember not to get too carried away. It's mainly the relief valve for the "serious face" mission threads.

Wow, only on page 3 and "someone" is already writing about a possible valve malfunction!

At least it is not a helium valve.

Request the modified version? That's daft! What if he says "the modified version is "Chris Bergin is a Boaty McBoatface" ???

Hey, I didn't vote for the modified version!*  It adds another word that is not necessary to an already long thread name.  We are in the SpaceX section, so nobody would confuse it with a BO rocket.  SpaceX only has Falcons, it can't launch anything else.  If and when we get a non-Falcon launched by SpaceX we will probably want another party thread anyway...

I hope we stick with the current name :).

It adds another word ...

It's a word exchange, not an add; no additional letters.  :P The party is for more than launch. The mod would be better.

Whose convention?

Democratic Party?
Republican Party?
Libertarian Party?

Falcon Party

Only semi-serious; but Dragon landings following a successful mission wouldn't fit.  There is no "Falcon" involved.  So maybe we should just get rid of Launch completely!  "The Fully and Rapidly Reusable Party Thread".  That's sufficiently generic for everything except for an expendable launch which... we may have some of.

Drat.

Well, as Nelson Mandela said when he met the Spice Girls, this is the happiest day of my life.

I take the point that it will be for more than launches, but  I'm not keen on adding 'Falcon' in it for aesthetic reasons.  It just seems clunky, it won't trip off the tongue, especially after you've had a few. 

And, not trying to be 'funny', but it's the party thread that is fully and rapidly reusable - Falcon isn't quite there yet   ;)

How about 'The SpaceX Fully and Rapidly Reusable Party Thread'?  Complete and concise whilst being verbose enough for comic effect?
