Super-Dooper, Final Official POLL: (This one's for the money)

Discussion in 'UO Sonoma' started by Dor of Sonoma, Jul 26, 2002.

  1. (yay!)

    Here it is, folks...the race has been narrowed down to the top five contenders from the preliminary poll. The winner of this determining poll will go on to grace our Shard Forum description, as representing the most popularly prevailing sentiment of our community here.

    So without further ado...*drumroll*...have fun! /php-bin/shared/images/icons/biggrin.gif
  2. ...the fourth entry should read:

    Sonoma: The best-kept secret in UO....buuuut I cannot edit a Poll, so just try to imagine it that way in yer head. :)

    I agree Vixen. Out of five choices four were "look at our low population" type of thing. No way am I gonna vote for one of those. That left only one choice for me and I didn't like it.

    I agree.. all those choices reek of l33tness to me.

    Bah, what am I saying? The whole shard reeks of l33tness..

    I like what Jacopo said at the Y last night......

    "you can check out, but you can never leave"

    or something along that line.....I vote for it
  13. Of course they are all leet !

    What would you expect?

    Sonoma, where everyone sucks?

    Sonoma, home of the worst PvPers in UO?

    Come on. It's like a school motto. Get with the whole thing.


    Why do you think we play here in the first place?

    Let's get with the program here. Sonoma is THE best shard around.

    I voted on one that NOT on this list from the other poll before this, I do not like the ones here , so I not voting on any of them Pepper:) But I do have pancakes rights as well, since I did vote on one that is not listed here, I voted for the one saying HOME of the YMCA or something like that. I do not like the LOW Pop. ones as that will only bring more player to Sonoma hoping to fine a place when there is none here since we seem to have just as many HOMES as the other shards do

    In your opinion /php-bin/shared/images/icons/smile.gif

    I happen to think that these ones are very cute and really do personify Sonoma. It's something that has been said a lot in the past, how Sonoma is so quiet and few people play here, so it seems only natural that we have a motto that reflects what people have been saying all along.

    Remember that Dor did take the top 5 votegetters from the previous poll - that means that these 5 were the ones that the majority of the people liked!

    I'm sorry you don't like any of them, but obviously others do.

    The last ones funny as hell...

  18. Well I looked at the original list and I remembered Joram's one he told me
    "Home of the YMCA but thankfully not the Village People"
    that is uber r337

    and I hope they happy with the final one they get, to me our old was far better then these 5. I rather be know as that west coast shard then one if these 5, but it seems that "Sonoma: 217 people can't be wrong!" will be the winning here as it seems to have the most votes, the 24 that voted for it will be happy to see that.
  20. After four posts on the subject (in a single thread, yet!) I do believe we are all assured of the fact that you do not like the results of the week-long preliminary Poll, and that you will not be voting for any entry as a result.

    May we move along to something else now? Thanks! /php-bin/shared/images/icons/biggrin.gif

    I like "Best-kept secret in UO" because: 1) I live in Sonoma and happen to like it very much -- including the comparatively lesser lag; 2) I would rather something positive about it (even in a jocular-negative way) so that it might encourage more people to play (especially if it needs more players). Though the others are very funny. I'm looking forward to seeing which one wins.

    Come on, isnt Sonoma the best kept secret in UO! I like Best Kept Secret because thats what Sonoma really is, 217 people cant be wrong, is only going to make people make more fun about our shard, I have been to chats in other sites and people just laughed at me saying that this is the least populated shard in the game. Best-Kept secret wont get more people its just a shard motto, but it sounds way better to me...

    As always,

  29. Correct me if I'm wrong here, but I don't think that the Sonoma Server is actually located in Sonoma County, is it?

    Towenaar Guest

    OF COURSE IT IS!! don't ruin the fantasy. /php-bin/shared/images/icons/smile.gif

    It IS in Sonoma county. It's a special set of servers sitting in the bed of 1997 Sonoma truck, modified by a pharcide wanabe to look l33t.

    There it lays connected in a barn next to a moonshine still that produces Sonoma Specials. : )

    All in Sonoma county.
