Rename Xanadu and let the players name it

Recommended Posts

OK so the thing is naming the new map Xanadu and not following any historical or mythological record is in my mind a blasphemous and slanderous use of it. Its also sad that a number of peoples only reference to Xanadu is a 80's pop culture show gone horribly wrong. I didnt see anything during the testing that led me to believe that there was anything there that would amount to using the name Xanadu. Yes its a huge map, and im not trying to take anything away from that. But a huge landmass alone doesnt really evoke any sense of Xanadu.


 


So I would propose a naming contest to rename the new server to something more appropriate and """original"""


 


Some basic rules


 


#1 Name Submissions must be original and not in current or historical / mythological records, archives.


 


ok ok ok so we need a few more


 


#2 No player names or variants on them


 


#3 No Movie/Song/Theatre Names or variants on them


 


 


It just needs to be original and  or that possibly has some WURM connotations.


 


Have the devs pick 20 or so from the submission list (to weed out the crazy) and or throw a poll out on it - or just whatever everyone wants to do and have the name chosen from that list.


 


It just is rather annoying that a name such as Xanadu was chosen without any obvious reference, so why not do a rename and let the players name it.

I agree, a Wurm server name breaking its own game rules? /facepalm

A poll would be a good idea.

i checked and @Xanaduserver is already taken for twitter so they would not get that name there anyway. I dont really care either way though what the server name is so whatever is fine with me.

Can't really thing of a name right now but I think the Dev theam should change the way it names its server.


Names like Independence, Celebration, Deliverance, Pristine, Affliction, Serenity and now Xanadu seem really silly to me.


I'll come back with some name ideas once I have time to think about it.

True.  If there's one thing I think we can all agree on is that we call rarely agree on anything.

I keep misspelling Xanadu as "Xanatu"... It's kind of annoying to spell and remember.

I'd love to see something that resembles the other server names more.

I think that the name should reflect Wurm mythology and please no poll let the devs rename it.

I think if dev's could come up with a bunch of names that lends itself nicely to Wurm and have a poll where players can vote on what they think is the best, that could work. I don't have a problem with Xanadu, but I'd be interested in seeing the options.
