Vote for your favorite name here! The winner will receive a copy of the vehicle, and the vehicle will be named to match their suggestion. The runners up will receive gold.

Do not create threads or posts asking people to vote for you. If I catch you doing this you will be disqualified.

The Koopa Killer.

Not bad but remember that, as far as I know, you're the only forum member that lives in The Mushroom Kingdom. Not everyone else will agree.

Why because the one you picked didn't make the list? If that's the reason then that's called being a sore loser.

They would be better off just naming the car exactly the same as whatever real muscle car it's modeled off of than any of these choices.

I pm'ed Mark, asking if I could edit the name I entered. No reply, so I didn't edit. Was going to change to Carmaggedon.

I think I just figured out why the worst name is dominating the votes. I know the whole vote for me posts on the forums arent allowed but are the in game posts monitered at all? Hmmmmmm... wouldnt it be easy to win if you were in a gang and messaged your gang to vote for you?

I also think if you wanted to take the whole "popularity contest" aspect out of it the initial name this vehicle thread should have been deleted so we wouldnt know who suggested which name. I didnt really care for any of the options that were given but voted anyway just to participate.

Wow... I didn't pay attention to who suggested what, but yeah... that's gay as hell. Well... stupid name, but they would have just bought one anyway, so funzio loses money.

thx for bringing this up, i pm'ed mark yesterday about it coz its not stated i cant use my ingame wall or my friends. if u aim for my disqualification sorry, not this time. everyone would have done the same, so if the rules again are not transparent dont blame me for bending. this time i get away with it, next time it wont be allowed, however they will control it. maybe hoping for player reports only.


I'll let it slide this time, but next time it won't be allowed.

I can see where the biases come from - we're all human anyway. But I would also hate to see cool events like this go away because of its flaws.

CCM, perhaps a more fair way to do it would be for everyone to PM you their entry. This way, nobody really knows who they are voting for. Of course, in game walls could be used to campaign, but nothing's perfect.

Maybe the top 2 or 3 vote getters should get the prize since the rules weren't 100% transparent?! (crosses fingers :))

Forum voting in general is a dumb idea. Let people offer their suggestions and give a prize to the one you pick, but why let an extremely biased and cliquish minority of the player base have any say in the actual decision? It's obvious that as long as you put this up for a popular vote, there will be problems.

I really dont care who wins and Im sorry if this disrespected you in anyway. I purposely didnt state your name or gang in my previous post. Im not looking for disqualification or anytning. I was more or less surprised that your name was blowing away the competition and it took me 2 minutes to go back to the pick a name thread to figure out why. My rant was more for how flawed the competition is especially since there was this whole "no campaigning" thing stated by CCM. Like I said, I really didnt care for any particular name anyway. You are 100% right in stating that everyone else would have done the same. I know I would have.

Are you kidding? There is no "fairness" ...that's wishful thinking.

That's because if you campaigned, people would have purposely not voted for yours even if it was the best one :p
