I see the motivation, but to me, the CEA Guiding Principles seem very carefully chosen and better than the suggestions here (though they are not bad either). I would be worried that CHOICE or another acronym would crowd out the Guiding Principles simply because it is easier to remember, while being worse content-wise (in my opinion).
(if relevant I can elaborate on why the Guiding Principles seem better to me)
Yeah I do see now how they’re very carefully chosen, and I just saw on their website and remembered now that a lot of organizations and people have voiced their support for these principles. I don’t think it’s worth changing them to fit this acronym, since that would mean having them run through multiple organizations again, with not a strong reason for doing so.
From the comments on this post, I realize this isn’t that good of an idea anymore. I still think it was worth sharing, and other people are free to experiment in using this acronym to explain what EA is about. But I wouldn’t push for it anymore to replace CEA’s current guiding
Thanks for getting back to me and for being open to updating your opinion! :)If you no longer endorse some of your original thoughts here (replacing CEA’s guiding principles), I would consider editing the article and putting a note on top or at the respective parts, else people who only read the article (and not all comments here) miss the update and still think you propose to change CEA’s guiding principles.
Good point. I’ve edited the article and added an update now at the end of the summary! Thanks
