Time to choose a new Catskills slogan!

    Hey there people of Catskills! It was recently brought up that the shard forums here on Stratics were missing their catchphrases or slogans we used to have on the old forums. As some of you might remember, each shard forum had its own slogan... Ours on Pacific used to be "Pacific - Got loot?" and then became "Pacific - Come for the PvP, Stay for the Drama"... Anyone remember the old one for Catskills? Got a better idea for a slogan for your shard? Let's see some new submissions!

    This thread will serve as the submission thread. Post your ideas here... once we have a good amount, I'll lock this one and post a voting poll thread so that the community can choose what represents Catskills' players best. Thanks folks, and let me know if you have any questions!

    The old Catskills slogan was a tribute to Grog. I forget the exact phase that was selected Gildar was in charge of doing the vote I believe.

    I think it was "Following Grog's first rule, 'Have fun'."

    Which I believe is still appropriate, and if it came down to it, I'd vote for it again.

    I asked Gildar to confirm the wording.
    Grog tribute takes precedence over any other option, obviously.

    Agreed... we wanted to put the option to all the shards, but the Grog slogan is definitely something that should take precedence until you Catskillians decide otherwise.

    Yup, keep the tribute to Grog. If we're not having fun, what's the point? :thumbup1:

    We did vote on it and Grog's Slogan was the winner. Grog had special meaning to many people on our shard and was a very valued member of our community so I for one would rather keep it.

    I so agree. Grog all the way. All of my vendors wear his hat in memory.

    I believe it was...
    Following Grog's first rule: "Have fun!"

    I think I kept a copy of all the submissions somewhere... I'll try to look for them when I get home.
    If I don't reply again by Friday, somebody poke me to make sure I remember.

    I definitely vote we keep Grog's slogan. He meant a lot to a lot of people. I know I still smile when I'm running around and see a Grog NPC. :)

    Where-as I admire your slogan ( I really do... at least it has some significance to the name Catskills). I was able to find this link explaining it a little. NY mountainous area. But ya' know...in our "mountains" one can hear the echo of Grog's famous catch phrase "Have fun". :)

    So, yeah... I nominate my vote for Grogs phrase as well. And I do give kudos to Aedon for being the one person though to use his imagination a bit. :)
