    Ishtar, what was the original motto?

    Sorry but I dont really think any of these are something that you should use to characterize one of the largest shards in the game. I think we need to keep working on it.

    You need to add "NONE" to the ballot so folks that want something else, or something better have the option so state their view. Perhaps even a "KEEP OLD MOTTO" and a "NONE, KEEP WORKING ON IT"

    I'd also like to point out that at least one motto seems to have changed somewhere along the way... How can you change a motto after folks have already voted on it?

  3. The old motto was "I'm sure the shard will be back up soon"

    The contest was to change it not keep it.

    The one morphed due to popular request.

    Hope that answers all your questions.

    Can we get a none option so that we can keep working for something better? I'm kinda disappointed that one of the options that I voted for "morphed due to popular request."

    I found the whole two phase voting system rather confusing. Maybe if you had a hundred entries that would have made sense but there were just a handful to begin with. Then you modify one of the mottos for the phase 2 vote because some people wanted to?

    IMO, any modified motto should have been submitted seperately and should go through the same voting process as every other motto.

    I really liked "Where it all began.", but I'm not a Barton-phile so I've been left with nothing to vote for now. If Barton rates motto notoriety, then why not Goodman, or any other famous player from Atlantic's history?

    And... not to put too fine a point on it... you basically took my vote for one motto and discarded it, or applied it to something else. I'm not sure which.

    If you personally want to pick a motto for the shard, then do it. If you're going to take a democratic vote for a motto then do it right.

    Safe Travels, Sam

    I have to agree with the other, while i voted for the second one. I cant say any of them are favored. And theres two of them mentioning barton out of three? I fear this may be my fault for not voteing prior and only giving idead. I guess i should have stayed on this.
     
  7. Any more folks feel this way?

    *tosses in .02*

    Maybe putting a "Keep the old motto" option and a "Where it all began" option with the above and staying at this final round would be fair. It would put Rachel having 2 of the final suggestions but both are good mottos honestly. I would hate to see all the work put in by Ishtar be wiped out by starting back from round one.
