Give me a rename! 10k worth of prizes! Winners Announced!

Ahoy all!

I'm in a very difficult situation, I need to rename a sloop, but I don't know what do rename it! People of Hunter Ocean, Please help!

All you have to do is put in a nice custom ship rename
Make sure it follows these rules

Only 3 entries per person
All entries must be done by next Sunday--October 11th
You have until 11:59PM (Gametime) to post it
I'll try to judge it as fast as possible, so depending on how many entries i get, between Wednesday and Monday (Next week)

First place: A grand prize of 10k!


Don't worry, I might be in a happy mood, and add some more poe to the pot.

Remember: This is a custom ship rename... It has to be unique. (Example: Australopithecus afarensis)

Note: If I don't get enough entries, or if I don't prefer the entries you give me, then I reserve the right to officially end it without a note.
Ask all questions here also :)

Fair Winds mates! Keep yer entries swell!

Re: Give me a rename! 12k worth of prizes!

Nice entries so far mates, Though I'm looking for something unique and/or cool.

If any one was wondering (/me coughs.. Look here!)

I'm going to edit the OP with a few things I need to switch around and this link.

I think I'm entering my own contest by putting this, but here goes nothing : Australopithecus Afarensis Which are the first ancestor's of humans. Or maybe Homo Sapiens. Read about them here
These guys are actually interesting :D

Thanks

Re: Give me a rename! 12k worth of prizes!

Flight of Fancy was the first thing that came to mind when I read this.

Anyway, I did something like this in my crew once and I sent the list of possible names to the OM's and got them to choose. I thought that was probly the fairest and most unbaised way to judge, considering I had entries too.

Lex Gabinia would be my next suggestion. Admittedly its my crew name over on Sage, but meh, its still awesome.

Considered Piracy Shall be my third.

Enjoy and good luck with entries. Hope you like mine.

Aye, from the wikipedia page on Renaming:

Seasick Kraken will be disqualified. Even though I wouldn't pick that name, Its still cheat/coping someone else's name choice. Remember mates: 3 names per person-- No more

Okay, I guess we got the possessive term thing through with.


Also: Im going to give everybody another Week to put in more suggestions. So Sunday October 11th

Im about to edit the OP

Re: Give me a rename! 12k worth of prizes!

Now thinking about it, there's absolutely no reason to put a second prize, so sorry, but I'm going to take off that prize.

Sorry.

I think this would be worth asking for an exception - on the way off chance you actually wanted this name. There is a precedent for renames which are used in a sufficiently puny or witty way that makes sense. Kevin McHale was a green and white wearing Celtic and McHale's Navy was an old TV show about pirates, er the navy.

Re: Give me a rename! 10k worth of prizes!

I realize your contest is closed, however, I like thinking of ship renames. :)

It might have helped with the suggestions if you had been a bit more specific what you were looking for. Were you looking for something spooky? Or intimidating? Or silly?

Anyhow, here's a few I've thought of:

Deathly Hallows

Rotting Bonefish ( standard rename)

Hungry Tigershark (standard rename)

S.S. Minnow ( Gilligan's Island- gotta love it. :))


Like I said, I know your contest is closed, just trying to help you find a rename you like. :)

In light of a post I missed previously, what about:

Re: Give me a rename! 10k worth of prizes!

Okay yeah, sorry about the double post...

Nice entries, Im a nub, so i put skeletal cannons on my ship (Keviv ---> Nub!)

I loved the entry(ies) by Crucifix, so I guess we have our winner!



Winner!!


Our winner is Crucifix, with the names Grass Lightning and Blind Frog!
Everyone else's entries were good-- but she went the extra step with the Green/White colours, effecting her choices.

Note: I also disqualified all people with more than 3 entries.

Nice job everybody, and congrats to our winner. Please PM me to get yer prize, there we can talk =)
