    Ok so I got my one way ticket to my new home and started to collect all the TP's and found a lot of TP's just named outpost. I thought that this would be kinda hard to tell my soc m8 that I was at the OP TP and explain witch one. So after thinking about this I thought wouldn't it be cool if we could have a event to have the OP TP's named after our society's? Tell me what you think of the idea and give me some examples of what type of events would be a great match for the prize please.

    I kinda think they should be named after the heroes in the backstory.
    Soc idea is nice, but could never be done fairly and socs change all the time. Plus some people don't like certain socs.

    Soc idea is a bad idea. Socs change or get disbanded... heroes from the past are more stable :D.

    my soc has been around from February of 2006, besides the whole idea behind it is to get people involved with Arkadia with events. I am not saying your opinion is wrong and I value all opinions here on this topic, I just want to clarify what I am trying to do.

    Getting people involved with events is fine and a nice idea.
    However I absolutely agree with the rest, I don't see any reason to name places after a soc.
    We had such things in the past already and to my idea it only leads to ego tripping.
    And as mentioned before, we already have a planet for ego trippers, we don't need that here.
    And as mentioned, soc's come and go.
    And same as the rest, I rather see that those outposts get Arkadia names like from hero's from the back story.
    This will also keep the back story alive.

    My dos peccos.

    Regards,
    Ion

    I think if this is to happen it should involve some story event where a soc can prove it´s worth it. Not one which lets maximum firepower win... we know the winners in that anyway... but something like the lost interns event maybe. Where is the storyline anyway? ^^

    Exactly this is what I am trying to say add the soc's to the story line because the story dose not stop after release.

    No matter how nice the intensions are... no matter if it's a nice soc or the highest skills or most helpful one... when a soc managed to get a TP named after them, some of the soc WILL turn into arrogant ego trippers. I don't say you will or your soc will... but someone WILL and then everything is ruined.

    I do see your point about people becoming arrogant and ego tripping. But remember that not everyone is ND and I can name a few people that never became arrogant or tripped on their ego after having something named after them in game not including those that were arrogant before.

    Irrelevant. It's just not a good idea IMHO.

    if you do it by society, maybe do it by the first avatar that found it? Wonder if half of them would be named freelancer?

    Agree. Nice idea from the OP, but will turn out bad I fear.

    I agree with this as well ... I like the idea of naming the Outposts after storyline characters.

    For example: if there's an Outpost near the caves where Professor Milton Lee was when he lost his life to the Oratan, then I think that Outpost should be named after him for sure. He's the one who alerted Havir about his file that gave vital information about the Oratan DNA and how to stop them from coming through the teleporting system, which saved many lives. He was a true selfless hero.

    Yea i agree with this. David has said that we will all be made part of Arkadia's History so i say who ever does become a part of it be named for those locations.

    I think of places like Nea's Be nice for it to be long time players too that have stuck it out.

    Good or bad idea, i hardly see the point of people turning in to arrogant egotrippers to be a valid argument as history proves that to be very very wrong. With all the people having stuff named after them i have not seen or heard about anyone turning in to above.

    I would tho point out that if you name stuff after a society, that still exist you will risk that the name's meaning will change over time due to the people inside the soc changes.

    Now naming after societies not existing anymore would be another deal.

    I would like to thank you all for your comments. It is discussions like this that help the Arkadia team to shape a world that we can be involved in and really enjoy. I am so happy I made Arkadia my home with such a great community and so many helpful people. I see unbelievable thing's in the future of this planet and am proud to be a part of it all.
