[News] What's a "motto" with you? Contest!

Discussion in 'UO Atlantic' started by imported_Ishtar, Feb 1, 2008.

  1. <center>[​IMG]</center>

    It's a new year and Atlantic section of Stratics needs a new motto! Here's how it works!


    [​IMG]Reply to this article with your idea, the submissions MUST follow the Rules of Conduct, violations will instantly be disqualified. This will run for about two weeks.

    [​IMG]After that time, the motto's will be compiled into one post and we'll ask for your favorites to be named, this will run for about another two weeks.

    [​IMG]When we have a top five a vote will be posted and will run for two more weeks.

    [​IMG]After the poll closes the winner will be announced in the Atlantic News!

    The winner will also receive a prize from Tazar, and a custom signature by Ishtar!
     
  2. Just for frame of reference, what was the old motto? Is there a theme, or genre to apply?
     
  3. This is the old one:

    "I am sure the server will be up soon !!"

    I'd like to see somethng Atlantic specific &amp; it must abide by the RoC. Otherwise feel free to be creative and so on.

    @ Sam - sadly the Bard forum already have something similar.

    Tazar, was that you I res'd in Shame just now ? Sorry I wasn't quicker off the mark, I'd only just started using that character again on a new PC and had to fumble around in the spellbook for icons.

    Hmm. A motto -

    Atlantic - so many people, so little taste in clothes

    [​IMG]

    No, really, I'll have a proper think later.

    ....

    Ok, I thought - Atlantic : where you're never Far from the Madding Crowd.

    I am amazed Stuffa didn't put something like

    "Atlantic: BARTON!"

    That would have been spiffy.

    My idea? I have none, but I will try anyway.

    Atlantic: Land of a Thousand Play Styles
     
  18. How about
    Atlantic: Can we get patches first again?


    effing Origin.

    yeah to be honest i'd quite lke Atlantic: Barton's People

    but I bet there'd be some form of mass rebellion by the non-barton believers

    How many of those are there then ? [​IMG]

    I wouldn't mind a Barton themed motto.

    How about...

    Atlantic: Home of The Syndicate.

    Probably too self promoting.

    How about...

    Atlantic: The way Socaria should be.

    Indeed.

    The whole Barton thing was not about any one guild, just a fun thing that anyone could join in with and even went into shard invasions. I would not back something that identified a shard with a particular guild.
     
  23. So who is Barton? and if he is so important to the Atlantic Shard how come I haven't heard of him before?
     
  24. Love the Star Wars UO fusion referendum! Keep em coming guys, there are some great ones so far!

    WHO IS BARTONLAL?!

    To be honest, it's been a while now since the infamous barton days...

    All I can say is...

    ... it's a long story

    *stares off into the distance hollywood style*

    Aww c'mon now Stuffa, you can do better than that ! [​IMG]

  28. Thanks Cat Crimson, at least that link gave me an answer that was helpful, and wasn't drenched in sarcasm.

    Okay, I would suggest classics and simple,

    "Atlantic: Vos Es Domus" (Translations "Atlantic, You're Home")

    Oh the whole Barton thing really was fun. It was an ongoing piece of supreme daftness, just pure giggles really. Some people got their panties in a bunch about it but they didn't possess much of a sense of humour. Stuffa should have tons of Atl Barton related pics somewhere.

    lol no need to get upset i wasn't being sarcastic in a nasty way, i was just playing up the epicness that is barton

    Let's see... some of the old photos...

    I suppose the biggest most recent factor was that Barton influenced me in naming my team on the Mongol Rally, team barton - me and my friend, who drove with me in the fiat panda to mongolia over four weeks from london:

    Huzzah, pics !

    It's so funny to think the lasting memorial to your old teacher will be pixelated in an online game.

    Also, I miss Nikademus =/ Lots.
     
  32. Lets keep this on track folks!

    Ok, to try and prevent this thread from being hopelessly hijacked by the Barton Borgs... I'll make another submission... hmmm....

    Atlantic: Land of brave Lords and Virtuous Ladies

    Plus... if you look closely at the word virtuous... you will see UO is spelled forward and backward within. Just as the Gem of Immortality carries a perfect image of our lands, reflected within by the lands of Trammel and Fellucia.

    Safe Travels, Sam
     
  36. OK everyone, tomorrow I am compiling a list of all the ideas in one thread and I want everyone to list the ones they like best! Get your last ones in today and during the day tomorrow!

    God damnit peen...
    *sheds tear*

    Brought back some win memories there.

    I vote for something Barton related also. It just characterises the good old spirit of atl better than anything else I recon.

    Either that or;
