One way to deal with deadlocked issues is to back up a step. Often people can't agree right away to the details but can agree on concepts. For the group name scenario you might be able to get some conceptual agreements such as the name should reflect our nature preservation values, sharing, or other such concepts. Having agreement on concepts can make it easier to filter out specifics which don't fit the concepts and also lead to the direction of agreement. Good idea. The other way to make decisons where there is not one right answer, is rather then trying to choose *the* right answer, throw out the bad answers. For example, in picking a name, think up 100 names. Have everyone throw out the name they can't stand the most, repeat untill you have a dozen so so good candidates, and then repeatedly vote on which name to pick, and throw out the name with the least votes. Finally, You'll end up with a name that nobody absolutely can't stand, and that a large majority has consistantly voted for, even if it wasn't their *favorite* name. Jim.
