Title: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Rolina on February 06, 2013, 02:37:52 PM
What do I mean?  Well, take a gander:

Aquoius - Village of General Chat
Aqerame - Village of games and movies
Aqukoi - Village of Art, Music, Literature
Aquarius - Village of Spam

They're all aqua bases.  I mean, come on, there's plenty of water themed bases out there.  Base some off of other things than "Aqua", like Hydro, River, Ocean, etc.

Hydrame for example.
Riverius.
Oceaus.

Something to break up the monotony of names.

Wetville. Soaktropolis. Swimmy. Steamland. (these are not serious)
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Rolina on February 06, 2013, 02:45:57 PM
They may not be serious, but at least they have character.  And that's better than Aqua-everything.

I think the village of spam should get a funny name (if this happens)
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Rolina on February 06, 2013, 03:00:59 PM
I nominate Soaktropolis for the village of spam.  It just seems to fit, you know?
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Tetsu on February 06, 2013, 03:03:29 PM
I second that.

At least Colosso isn't Aquacolosso or something like that.

Yeah because it's soaked in spam! HAHAHEHAHEHEHAHAHEHAHEHAHEHAHEHAHE

Aquolosso. :3

Thank goodness it's not THAT. XD

Surely they read their own forums?  I trust them to be able to find this thread perfectly fine. :3

While I think they're redundant, I don't think it's a very pressing matter.

You'll have to ask Sea yourself even though I'm mostly running the community stuff nowadays.

Just note that the forums wouldn't look like this if I didn't add new ones and updated it. The only limitation I can't really do is change the names that Sea made unless I created that forum.

So the Forums I created are:

- The Library - TLW Wiki

- TLW Weekly Polls

- Merepeople Reward Agency Post

- Problems

- Suggestions

- The Jail - Ban Log

- Golden Sun 4?

- Anime and Manga

- TLW Project Manga HQ

- Clan Wars

- Sol Alliance HQ

- Luna Alliance HQ

- Link - Gaia Town (Gaia Online Guild)

As for the rest, they're created by Sea himself and I can't really touch them (but he wouldn't get mad much if I do little updating on the names, I think). Although, the main problem is that Sea doesn't get on much and leaves me watching for him....

@ Legend: You're just a behavioral Mod along with Maegra. I have the power to update, add stuff, etc...
Change Clan wars to "War of the Clans", far more interesting title

Change ban log to "The Lost Water courts", sounds more proper and less 'evil'

Topic reopend. The names for the forums were made late in the night about 4 years ago. I believe it is time to change.

I nominate Soaktropolis for the village of spam.  It just seems to fit, you know?
I love it. It fits completely.  :50: Changed immediately.

I second that.

At least Colosso isn't Aquacolosso or something like that.
Aquolosso. :3
Thank goodness it's not THAT. XD
I want to change it to that. :61:





Relax. Colosso remains the same if there no better name is suggested. :D But expect that name on Aprils Fools Week!

Now let's tackle the rest of the forums names.
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Scorpio on February 10, 2013, 05:12:41 AM
Hydropol (From Hydropolis but chabged slightly) for General chat. Maybe Neptown for one of them. (Shout out to Neppy!)
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Rolina on February 10, 2013, 05:18:42 AM
I suggest "Golden Sun 4?" be changed to "The Future of Golden Sun".  After all, this could refer to things such as Side Games, Fan Games, and other things that may not necessarily be considered the fourth installment in the series.

Wanted spam to be the floodgate, oh well.
General chat can be Calming seas or something like that. Cuz it's where we talk about not spam like things
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.

That's actually better than the one I made up xD Or maybe "The Broken Floodgate" lol
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Rolina on February 11, 2013, 05:51:20 PM
Not as silly sounding as Soaktropolis.  That's what makes that name so great.
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on February 11, 2013, 06:58:34 PM
Agreed ^
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Aether on February 12, 2013, 10:59:57 PM
Meh, have it your way.

Thanks, Sea.

I'd like to nominate the name Hylit for The Village of Art, Music, Literature.
Also, I'd like to nominate Oceapaz for Village of General Chat.

What is your reasoning?
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Scorpio on February 13, 2013, 07:01:06 PM
How about "Oceanica" for art, music, and literature?
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Aether on February 13, 2013, 09:40:50 PM
I want Sea World to be something
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Rolina on February 14, 2013, 12:09:20 AM
What is your reasoning?
We need a reason beyond "Rule of Cool" and "Rule of Funny"?
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Ivan Strider on February 17, 2013, 06:14:00 AM
How about "Seaside Arena" instead of Collossus. Collossus is a bit too mainstream.
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Aether on February 17, 2013, 09:23:50 PM
But isn't colosso the name of the arena of gs1? It should stay
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Nyran on February 17, 2013, 10:01:44 PM
Really guys? It's Colosso. Just sayin'
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Ivan Strider on February 18, 2013, 12:08:43 AM
Calling it Collosso would be sort of plaigeristic (is that even a word?) I would suggest not doing that.

Collosso was a battle ground in real life at one point in history
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Ivan Strider on February 18, 2013, 01:37:12 AM
still that proves my point.
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on February 18, 2013, 02:38:53 AM
hahahah Taking a historical name isn't plagiarism, Lux.
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Rolina on February 18, 2013, 05:35:07 AM
Um, I don't see anything wrong with it, considering pretty much all of Weyard is based on real places on earth...  Air's Rock = Ayer's Rock, Gaia Rock = Mt Fuji (LITERALLY called that in the JP version), etc.
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Scorpio on February 18, 2013, 05:41:52 AM
Look at a map of Weyard circa TLA and a real world map side by side sometime, you'll see how much it's based of the real world.
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Ivan Strider on February 18, 2013, 06:10:31 AM
Well i'm still gonna be hipster and say that it is too mainstream.
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Aether on February 19, 2013, 04:41:47 AM
Your wings are mainstream
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Rolina on February 19, 2013, 05:13:31 AM
I nominate Hydrosia for the entertainment board (TV, Movies, etc).  Because it sounds cool.
Title: Re: Your town naming lacks variety.
Post by: Nyran on February 19, 2013, 05:42:59 AM
Seconded

Seems legit. hahahahah.
