ok...haha...were the ass. yeah i guess some members are unsatisfied with our name...well since we are limited in what we can talk about right now, this is a good opportunity to come up with the real name of our PA.

uhhhh...well i intended this thread to be a place for ppl to post as they come up with names, and i feel obligated to come up with one right now. so...my first suggestion will be...

>drum roll<

the CFIT
...or Coalition for Intergalaltic Trade.

and we will do things as we "C" fit...hahahahah

>laughs at own pun for twenty minutes...until MikeC ends the rant with a jab to the stomach<

Here are some names

Secret Network Associated Players (SNAP)

The Illuminadi

The Brotherhood of Corellia

The Guild of Free Enterprise (GFE)

Global Underground (not original but hey - it works right:D ) - with a name like that, people will flock to it!

Kwok

I'm perfectly fine with the associates.




Hmm, just thought of this but...

can we design our own clothes?


If so we could all were a small tag saying:
The Associates



:cool:

With this new profession, Image Designer, I would say yes.

And I seem to remember you have the option of 'clothing' your character from the character creation screen, but I could be wrong.

Exactly how detailed this profession is, I don't know (if it's down to the name tag of the designer, that'd been cool :) "What dress it is?" "It's a Gavor." "Oooh, those are expensive. :eek: ).

:D

How about a Coat-of-Arms? You know, a patch like the Empire, Rebels and the Hutts use?

No offense, but those name suggestion were plain ugly! :)
Oh, and custom-made uniforms for our armed forces would be neat.

yeah...those names are too stuffy. we need a looser one that doesnt sound so official. im not too creative when it comes to stuff like this, but im glad to see that someones trying.

as for that clothing thing...im like 95% sure that i read that a clothes designer can dye your clothes for you.

Ascari
06-02-2002, 06:05 PM
Lol :)



U can do some funny stuff If u can write on your clothes :)

Remembered something else too.

If we go with Association, we'll be known as Ass (you all know this, but this isn't my point. Keep reading :) ). But there's already an A.S.S. organization, atleast over at the main forums, the Anti Spame Squad!. lol Don't want to be associated with those. hehe :D

How about Corellian Free Traders? CFT?

setsuko
06-02-2002, 11:33 PM
Corellian free traders would be a fitting name. If we were Corellian free traders. Which we are not. Settled? :D

I wanted The Associates...man I'm gonna miss The Asses! I think something simple is the best...maybe Free Trader(s) something?

I liked the asses to.
How about:
The...
Department of Inner Commerce and Knights of Space ?

Well, it has to be a name that fits in the star wars universe. And it does have to have something 'unique' to it, not just a collection of nice looking words. We could perhaps name our PA to a well known creature, or some big event or whatever, something that will stick.

Because when I hear Galactic conglomorate of trades, correlian merchant guild, combined shipping federation, etc. I think...noooo, not another one!

I was thinking in sort of this direction:

Banshee Eye conglomarate (sp)

Spacehaulers of the Boiling Sea

These are not devinite names, just something to make you guys consider the alternatives.


Got this info from theforce.net:

(Banshee Bird
native to Corellia, this avian was known for its high-pitched scream. )

( Boiling Sea
a tourist attraction on the planet Drall in the Corellian System. Many speculate that the sea is a temporary geological formation that will disappear in a few hundred generations. In summer, the ground surrounding the small, landlocked lake become hot enough to boil off the accumulated water. Rains and winter snows replentish the sea. (AC, AS) )

Gaalgoth - you said it yourself dude - ' We are growing to become legion, gentlemen ' . Now that is a name, simple, easy to remember and the embodiment of what we are - LEGION

The Associates is fine - we just need a better abreviation.

Ascari
06-04-2002, 06:16 PM
I suggest a new abbrevation:


The Asso's

Jan Gaarni
06-04-2002, 07:13 PM
And that is better why? :confused:

Ascari
06-04-2002, 09:02 PM

06-04-2002, 09:14 PM
wouldn't it be nice if the whole PA understood lol?

Gaalgoth
06-04-2002, 11:16 PM
hmmm.....Legion does sound good....I don't like the idea of throwing "Trade" into the title as not everyone will have to do with trade and we don't want this to get secular. Legion also does have a better ring then the associates....you all decide though, as you all are the people being represented by this title. I agree with Kwok, Legion is a good name. At the same time, The Associates still sin't abd as long as we don't get a gay nick name.

Asso's? lol


i dont like to be called names. :D

Asso's is a Dutch word for lack of education.. or manners (sp?)
lets just say... very rude :D

i think we need new Abbreviation aswel.

ok.. the name isL Associates
hmmm ACT?
Asiates? :D
AST's?

well... dont know

-Wraith 8-

Zendjir
06-05-2002, 07:58 AM
Nooo, no abbrevations! Like: ''hey man, I'm Zendjir, I'm the CO of the AST, the AST is a member of the GTC. We are currently at war with TGE, however we do not agree fully with TRA either''

Does that sound dull and confusing to you? That's what abbrevations do. ONLY use abbrevations when everyone knows our clan/group whatever. or else we will just be another abbrevation in the sea of SWG abbrevations. SWG for example is a well known abb. it's an example of proper usage of abb. (didnt feel like typing abbrevation all the time :) ).

Twok's suggestion of legion indicates that we are moving in the right direction, however ''Legion'' indicates something militaristic, and we not a militairy organisation. I think the name should show something about what we ''do' as a PA, 'trade' 'constructing' 'mining' or whatever.

I have no good ideas at the moment though. :(

I see. And how was this better again, Ascari? :D :p ;)

... however ''Legion'' indicates something militaristic, and we not a military organisation.
And I second that. We are not a military unite or militant at all. Atleast that's what I thought. :)

Gaalgoth
06-05-2002, 09:26 PM
According to dictionary.com, one of the meanings of legion is a large number, multitude. It is also defined as a military group, but it is not restricted to military. I'm not saying we have to make this our name, I'm just pointing out legion does not mean we are military only. However, we are not trade or whatever oriented....we are everything oriented. We may have a lot of people interested in trade and what not, but we're everything. keep that in mind.

NRPA non-restricting Pa...no one said it had to be enticing ...thats just a straight foward name that says what we are...right?

Im dissappointed, no one liked my suggestion. Does everyone hate acronyms?

arguile
06-06-2002, 01:44 PM
when the acronym looks like this: "D.I.C.K.S."
very interesting suggestion Koffin...

Jan Gaarni
06-06-2002, 01:57 PM

Hadn't noticed. Just read "Department of Inner" and thought: "Imperial" and stopped reading it.

acronyms arent so bad as long as they say something cool.
D.I.C.K.S. isnt one i have in mind exactly but as long as it spells out an actual word, its ok.

after awhile everone would forget the real meaning anyway and we'd just be left with a cool name.

Wraith 8

Hey hey hey... dont change the name NOW.. i just finished a flash banner... wich took me some trouble :D.. so dont change it :D

after awhile everone would forget the real meaning anyway and we'd just be left with a cool name.

If the real meaning is one that captures the readers attention and interest, it will not go away. In real life, do all company names become an abbrevation? No, some do, but the majoraty of mayor company's has non-abbrevation name (Sony, Nintendo, Coca-Cola, etc. ). And I usually forget what company it was when they use an abbrevation-name, except when they are important (and in SWG, as a PA we can't expect that we will be very important).

Just keep the name short and captivating, or choose the abbrevation path that ultimatly leads to a faceless PA.

Oh, and Waith, thanks for all your work. Why don't we keep our current name untill the game releases, so that all Wraiths work hasn't been for nothing?
