There will be a poll running throughout this/next week to determine the top 3 or so to add to the LA. Whichever ones have the most support. This avoids spamming the LA. No need to add options this week.

Woah, easy Ein'keos. I will put up a poll now but not for this week of advise but for the next one. This time we have to prepare for the festival, volunteer work and such and to beat some dvergar. We can show An´Jhali next week our ideas for the name for the district when she´s not worried over her people who fights in a foreign mine.^^

I will leave out those which were used with the translator after all. If Kern doesn´t like them cause he could get sued and if it doesn´t fit with his drow language then we should leave it out.

Or do everyone think same right for every idea?

The one's made with the translator are still in the poll though.

At this point, I have to agree it's probably best to just wait till next week. It's a shame because there's not much real stuff for the clan to vote on this week and we don't know what the next week will bring.

EDIT: FYI, the ones made with that were translator are the last four on the list on the poll

Um... If all they're voting on is the meaning, then you should only have the meaning there. Otherwise, people will think they're voting for a name and if they haven't read the thread will get confused when one of those choices wins and it's not what they voted for.

Kern doesn't have his own in-world drowish language system. He'd just have to make up a word, or blow you off. Which is probably what he'd do. I'd vote for one of the names that is already drowish, and short or with an easy short form. Remember we'll be writing and saying it over and over, some monstrosity with 6 apostrophes will get cut down to it's first 4 letters probably.

The next step.

Postby 3Power on Mon Jul 12, 2010 12:41 am

The way I see it, there are two potential paths we can take to present these options to anji.

Before I get into that though, there was some question of how many to present. 3 or 5.
I would definitely avoid five. Arguably the whole point of this thread is to narrow down the options, and 5/9 is still half of them. Three is also nice because then whichever two lose can be used for the other two districts once they develop.

Now the two options.

One is to just directly suggest the options via the advise box.
Pros:
It can be done independent of a ranked action.
It can be done in one turn.
It unquestionably leaves the choice in the clan's hands short of a complete anji veto of the idea.
Cons:
There's a chance someone will throw their hat in despite not participating in this thread.
For the options made with the translator, if they win, there's no way to check if it's fine first, so we would have no choice but to submit an advice along the lines of "Milady, please pick a name that means blady-blah.

The other option is to have Xenon go around the clan gathering suggestions for the name and then presenting them to Anji, either having her choose or having her ask the clan for a vote.
Pros:
The whole "used a dictionary first" problem can be explained then and there, and results can be omitted or changed or used by kern as needed.
It's less likely someone will throw their hat in if it comes to a vote.
We get kern in on the idea so he isn't blindsided by the sudden vote.
Cons:
It requires Xenon to spend her action on it, depending on priorities, this could be bad.
It would require at least two turns to get to a vote, or one if anji chooses by herself


Other thoughts: It would be nice to get this matter settled before the welcoming festival so we can have banners with "Welcome to ..." on it.

Voted for my idea (Ther'Sel'Delma)... because of it being mine mostly... To avoid confusion, perhaps it should be shortened to Ther'Sedelma (less appostrophies this way too).

i'd like to change my contribution name back to my first idea, "new hope", because it will be the district of "new hope" for the settlers. It's poetic and stuck in my mind, i dunno. Sounds nice to have "new hope" beside "ther'avare" I hope you all vote for it.

For some reason I keep thinking of "Visit Rock City". Then we'd need to name a waterfall "Ruby Falls".

..."Visit Rock City"...


Heh. I wonder if they still use those weird red-cheeked gnome signs everywhere as advertising.

I remember the incline railway and the Civil War historic site, but don't think I went to Rock City. Was years ago, with my grandparents...

So instead of foundation *new hope*? Or the drowish word for *new hope*? *hmmm*
