Name your Servers!

For TFP server admins to post news or information related to the game servers.

Postby Witchiebunny » Wed Dec 31, 2008 9:06 pm

We the admin staff (and by we, I really do mean Nikkyvix and Dr. Jones) have come up with an idea.

We now have three servers, two in the US and one in Europe. We, obviously are not the only community with more than one server, and having them classified as Server #1, Server #2 and Server #3 is so bland and common. And you know us...we love to stand out.

So we've come up the idea to give each server an individual name.

The ideas that have been thrown around have been to name #1 something like TFP Andromeda, #2 TFP Bahamut, etc.

I'm opening the floor to nominations and the admin staff will decide on the best choices and put it to a vote.

Nothing vulgar.

Seeing as it's Team Fortress 2 servers; maybe a theme to go in line with them? Some obscure inside jokes; or vague references in the Team Fortress 2 server. I'm not good at these kinda' things; but I was thinking of names along the lines of Spycrab Central and Winbomb Persistence. Hell; it could be as simple as Happy Heavy and Sadistic Sandvich for all I care.

PUR United Railways, because recursive abbreviations are awesome. ;)

(I wouldn't mind a server being named PUR, but it might cause some confusion with the steam group I created for fun.)

I guess I am a different breed as far as what I'd name the servers.

TFP Andromeda, TFP Bahamut and TFP Caprica would be names I'd throw in. Simple and followable (A, B, C). But this is why we are asking you all to make names for us to pick, because in the end these servers are for YOU guys, after all. Help us out! :)

It sounds like a fun idea, but I personally feel that this may end up just confusing potential new players for some reason.

144 views, and seven responses?

C'mon, folks! So far it's mainly admins tossing names out here! At this rate, we'll just have to name them ourselves. :p
