The poll will end in 24 hours, that is tuesday, 9.30 PM CET. :)

For non-German speakers:

1: Deutschland = Germany, dames = dames. ;)

2: Sprechen Sie = Do you speak, deuce as reference to deutsch = German which would be the correct word here.

Could you please capitalize 'deuce'? Otherwise, it doesn't come across as well, strictly orthographically speaking. This could be interpreted as a cunning plan to benefit "Deutschland Dames". ;)

P.S. Wouldn't mind the question mark being moved one space to the left to make it absolutely perfect.

As I said before, you can't edit polls.

Actually I'm completely confused right now. What's correct: 'Sprechen Sie Deutsch?' or 'Sprechen Sie deutsch?' :o

I might agree on the question mark, though. ;)

Oh, sorry, didn't know that.

I think there is freedom of choice since it can be treated both as a noun and an adjective in this context. But as it's going to be used as a forum name, it should be capitalized.

matthias,

It's just a wordplay. Deuce and Deutsch share the first three letters and both relate to the forum (tennis reference, German reference). Actually, at first I thought it was spelling mistake by Brian Stewart, who came up with it I believe, since he had spelled 'Sie' incorrectly as well. ;)

Go with 'Sprechen Sie deuce ?' I'm old, but when I hear 'Deutschland', my brain fills in 'Uber Alles'. (In fairness, I have to admit that when I hear 'California', my brain fills in 'Uber Alles'. Thank you, Dead Kennedy's.)

matthias, I know what you mean about the pronouncing. 'Deutsch' and 'Deuce' sound completely different. But oh well, I don't really care about the name either, but I thought that we finally had to 'make nails with heads'. ;)

'Deutschland' and 'Über alles' is a rather infamous combination in Germany. :o

Congrats Brian. :) Good job Eggy. ;)

Holy crap! I'm surprised it got considered. And, for point of reference, I was using the tennis "deuce" as a play on words. I'm surprised I only spelled "sie" wrong. I wasn't too sure about "sprechen" either. :)

There should have been more choices.

Nobody is going to know that "Deuce" has anything to do with Germany.

xan, there WERE more choices. There was another thread with 8 options, and these 2 were the most popular.
