Hmmm if the devs would push a forum update the discourse team have actually made some quite nifty upgrade to the polls.

https://meta.discourse.org/t/a-better-poll-feature/28008


Chubacabracorn FTW.

Has anybody TRIED this out here on the Oort forum?
Maybe it’s already in?
I remember that the forum updated just a week or so ago

Edit
OK tried it and it didn’t work
but yes that would be a better system for this

The update is around a day old now i think :slight_smile:

In the original post someone suggested “Taun”, sadly its not in this poll.
Well I´ll settle with Horknarf now.

I believe Taun was considered too close to other copyrighted creatures for inclusion. Someone please confirm.

I don’t know, I just copied the last list of potentials in the devlog
but being “too close” to a copy-writ name is ridiculous
a copyright only protects against a copy not something that is kinda sorta maybe similar
so if something was excluded that should have been there I apologize

The reason Taun was removed was because it too closely resemble TaunTaun, a named owned by Starwars and Disney. You don’t want to mess with Disney.

Also, and as was my fear, in creating this poll you have left out any new name suggestions, one of which is gaining popularity with four likes to itself.

No Bilgesnipe? I know they mentioned it in Avengers, but it’s not a copy written name… It’s a mythical creature and in the public domain.

Actually that was created by Marvel in the Thor comics. And not only is it owned by Marvel, but Marvel is owned by Disney, so…

There will be other creatures

this is like in pirates of the carribean where everyone votes for themself and then there’s jack who votes for elizibeth, and that’s why we have 2 votes for one of them.

hey guys just btw I need some cult followers to follow me in the cult of terry. K thnx.

An Cult?! Only if I have to kill someone to get in, otherwise it’s not an real cult.

I think 8 vs 1, the Cult of Oortaina Commonus Gahtana is going to eat your Terrys, but only time will tell. Horknarf is making a nice climb though. It’s a close second.

If this poll ends up with tie or we can’t decide winner with this for any reason…

WEEEEE SHALL BATTLE AND BLOOD WILL BE SPILLLED IN NAME OF GLORIOUS CREATURE NAMES!

If situation goes to that point, what you say fellow members of Gahtan knights order, should we start building castle named after our lord Gahtan and where we shall obuild it? :smiley:

The mighty Gahtan Temple - Covered in gold. Countless lifes have been sacrificed to build it. Ît outlasted many wars and still is present. Hidden in the valleys of a unknown world.

Blood battle is not to shabby an idea. let it be a 30 min event, 2 teams, each team represent one of the names, the team with the most kills in 30 mins win.

Or each team has one orange goat thingy and that needs to be defended. Team which loses their creature, lose the match and rights to name it.

problems with that being

  1. you cannot defend it from other players
  2. you cannot catch it

xD
