Algo is Proof of Stake, therefore it makes sense to call it "Staking".
+ Well known phrase in other PoS communities
+ Easy to recognize, easy to understand
+ Strong focus

PS: vbuterin compared PoS to "virtual mining". Imo it is a very good term if you want to explain what PoS is about.
But using the term "Staking" is good enough to be included in software.

edit: novelty terms like "baking, forming..." will cause only uncertainty

Thanks for your opinion and facts!

As far as I know there are is no real standard that is written for the name of "PoS mining".
We can make the standard as no one has ever made something like the CoreDevs are doing for NXT 2.0!

Jean-Luc had a great idea on Slack:

Quote
if we first invent a good name for the forging token, even if meaningless, we can go backwards and create a verb based on it, to indicate that this is what you do with this token

[2:33] 
e.g., if we were Lisk, the process would be called Lisking

We call the coin Stake and we are Staking (STAKE). Master of Proof-of-Stakes!  8)

Really nice idea, but there are too many ideas for a token name if you look at the other thread, so this is probably faster...

Other ideas:
Brangdon had the idea of BAK coin -> Baking process.
I thought of the BGE coin (beegee) -> based on Jean-Luc his post: "Block Generating Chain". -> Generating process

@wolffang - I got your PM regarding the "change vote" option not working. Maybe Damelon already had fixed the poll, but I checked and there seems to be sometimes a bug for that option when the poll is not created by a local/global moderator with certain permissions.

I applied a fix so the permissions are processed properly, and I just checked with a test user and it does work. So in any case, if anyone wants to undo their votes and vote again, just use the "Remove vote" button right under the poll options.

My 2 nxts:

Having this discussion without involving the broader Proof-of-Stake community is almost a waste of time. Now that so many different platforms use/plan to use PoS in some capacity it's almost impossible to establish the 'accepted term' on a forum as isolated as this one.

Suggestion: invite the other communities to have a discussion about it, if nothing else it exposes more intelligent and productive people to the Nxt platform
