Re: New names for Midnight/Cobalt

 
I wouldn't mind aquamarine. That's even my birthstone. I'm still going to push ultramarine , though! It's super blue.


I think of aquamarine as a blue green. (no sub/dub mix tyvm) However, that Ultramarine is pretty impressive. I will have to go with that too.

Re: New names for Midnight/Cobalt

I like "Ultramarine" because we could call ourselves Ultramariners. And that would amuse Old Squiddy.

I like Cerulean, but I know most won't be able to pronounce/spell it. :/

I miss Azure lots, but it's gone and it's not coming back.

Re: New names for Midnight/Cobalt

(1) If Cire comes out of retirement, we should call the new ocean "Funky Town".

(2) On a related note, the Ringers could make a lot more money if they implemented an "Ocean Rename Policy".

Re: New names for Midnight/Cobalt

 
Well, Hermes said that they won't be re-using any ocean names in his most recent Q&A post, so that means Azure isn't going to happen, as cool as it might be.
 
Q: Will you consider the name ?Azure??
A: Yes, we will consider resurrecting the name ?Azure? if it gets enough votes. As stated previously, however, we will not reuse any of the current ocean names.



 
Q: When is my last chance to suggest ocean names?
A: Today! We will gather up all of the most popular names you have suggested and ask you to make your final choice starting tomorrow, Wednesday, December 14th. You will have until Friday, December 16th to cast your vote. The final poll will be prominently linked in a few places.

Re: New names for Midnight/Cobalt

Sure. so do buildings belonging to people who haven't played in 5 years or more.

I'd agree with you if the game were growing...but I'm pretty sure this means it's not.

Re: New names for Midnight/Cobalt

The Azure memorials, as I discovered to my surprise last night, don't seem to mention the word "Azure" anywhere (either that or I was hallucinating, which is also plausible). So from a confusion standpoint, it shouldn't be a big deal, at least with respect to the monuments. The other arguments still hold, though I personally disagree with them.

The one on Alpha does, both in the actual page and on the image of the statue.

Re: New names for Midnight/Cobalt

Interesting, then it's inconsistent.

Though if you click through to the crew/flag descriptions it does say it there, I forgot that part. But other than that the one on Heph's Forge has no mention of Azure whatsoever.

There are 2 monuments on Alpha - one is the Alpha Island Monument (like the one on Heph's Forge), and the other is the Azure Memorial that lists all the /glory given by Azure ocean players.

Pointless? Not at all. It probably convinced quite a few mates to vote for something other than Azure.
