    The last day to vote for NAME THAT TOWN nominees is Friday June 7th (7pm PT, 9pm CT, 10pm ET)!

    All players from all shards are invited to help NAME THAT TOWN on Sonoma by casting a vote for their favorite name. Just make a character on Sonoma and head to Umbra then go over the west bridge and continue until you arrive at the old ORC FORT ... or use one of the 3 teleporters located on the step area at the Sonoma Community Library in Luna (east corner - southwest building). 25 Million in UO gold will be awarded to the winning entry.

    With the state of UO, Santa Carla should have been a choice....

    For those who have watched the clip and do not know the context.

    That line was spoken at the end of a film from the 80s about teenaged vampires called The Lost Boys.

    The line signifies that a character whom we had little specific reason to think knew about the vampires has in fact known about them all along and, presumably, would have warned others had they been ready to believe him and would have assisted in the fighting had anyone asked.

    We took entries until Sunday March 17. On our weekly Radio meeting the FOLLOWING Sunday, the ones that showed up for the weekly meeting voted on their 3 favorite. They were given the spreadsheet that included the names and the description on why that name. Each person casted a vote for their 3 favorite. From there, we took the three with most votes, and those were than chosen as the finalist. Then, instead of us picking a name, we are allowing the people vote on their favorite from the 3 finalist. There were so many good ones, and I will give each entry a prize. We had hoped to do voting starting and running through April, but a few of us got tied up with real life, and as everyone knows, that comes first. Now that we are all back, its time to finalize this competition. There are no names on who nominated these entries, so we are trying to keep it unbiased. I do know whose they are, but I wont tell until we have a winner. We do have a winner, that we voted on unanimously (the uoradio staff) on our slogan!!! That individual will receive a special prize as well! Thank you all for entering, they were ALL so good and soooooooooo hard to pick just three!!

    Here were the original rules:

    Sonoma we need your help! Several Sonoma players have teamed up with the crew at UORADIO.COM and are working on establishing a town for all of our facilities. The town is located in the Orc Fort west of Umbra (33°8 N 1°28 E Malas). Some of our facilities include a bank, the Bates Motel, Foxxie's Club & Casino, Killa Fighting Chickens Arena, Market and Emergency Services, an Information Center, Deal or No Deal Studio, plus Mums Munchies Cafe along with other facilities outside the walls.
    We are looking for creative minds to help us come up with a great name that will be used in our submission for township. This name needs to incorporate the buildings within the fort as well as our commitment to our community with events.

    Our rules are simple:
    1. Due to the rules we cannot use UORADIO.COM in our town name.
    2. Our name must be clean and appropriate
    3. If name has already been submitted, the first participant that enters that name will be credited for that submission.

    To enter, simply fill out the form below with your ideas. You can enter more than one name, or submit more than once if something comes to you at a later time. Once the event closes, the staff will gather at our weekly meeting and discuss each name. From there we will choose, as a group, the best three. Once we are down to three names, we will then open final voting where each of you will have a chance to vote on the final name.
    The winner will have their name posted on a plaque at our information center which will remain there for the length of our town and 25 MILLION UO GOLD donated by Lord Nabin, our wonderful Sonoma Benefactor and friend.
    *DISCLAIMER: We have the right to reject any entry that does not follow the rules. The prize will ONLY be delivered on Sonoma, but anyone is able to participate.*
