Changing the Name of the Student Newspaper sign now

This is the formal petition on behalf of the EPGY OHS Student Body to have the name of the OHS Student Newspaper changed back to the ! from the OHS Exclamation. We believe that the change that has occurred disrespects tradition and causes the name of the newspaper to lose the symbolism and power it once had. Though the design and layout of the newspaper may be changed, changing the name is an entirely different matter that should not be dealt with lightly. One of the counterarguments to changing it back has been: Our rationale was that a newspaper should have a name that can actually be pronounced. A paper that can be referred to by name will create a much more personal and sentimental connection to the school. While this may apply to any normal newspaper, the OHS is special because it is online, as is its newspaper. The brilliance of it being online is that you dont need to be able to pronounce its name at all. This opened up whole new fields of names and symbolism, resulting in ! as the original name. As you can see by now, ! is not a terrible name, but the carefully thought out, symbolic, and loved name of the OHS Student Newspaper. Thus, we request that you change the name back to !
