Hi @crystalysta , agreed Crystalysta is a really catchy name, in fact I do like it, it has a cool vibe to it. We had received over 100 recommendations for the name from various community and social channels and I have tried my level best to curate the final list with the most popular requests keeping in mind entries from all major channels.It makes me sad that “Crystalysta” didn’t make it to the final list however I trust you have cast your ballot and we will come up with the best one that suits the community of programmers by popular choice!
