Name That Computer!


Competition is finished. The computer is named [Elftron], by [Hendercrazy]!


Illustrious Mayor [Hedda] has proclaimed that the Elftown computer (currently known as "The Computer that Runs Elftown") needs a new short, nice, fun, and interesting name. Thus, we proudly present the "Name That Computer" competition!


All members of Elftown are invited to partake in this competition. You do not need to possess any special artistic talents; however, a good clean wit is helpful.


The "Name That Computer" competition opens on Friday, January 23, 2004, and will run until Saturday, January 31, 2004.


1. All submissions must be in English.
2. The following characters are permitted: A-Z, a-z, _, and -
0-9 can be used after the first position. These are the ONLY characters allowed
3. All submissions must be your own original idea.
4. The name must be kept to a reasonable length. Use common sense here. [Hedda] will be referring to the ET computer by this name, and having a name composed of 27 syllables is not preferable.
5a. The name you create must be able to be pronounced.
5b. Do not message [Hedda] with every name you concoct asking "Can you pronounce this?" If you do, your chances of winning will be greatly diminished.
6. The Crew reserve the right to delete entries that are hateful, explicit, obscene, nasty, and the like...  without warning.
7. You ARE allowed to be creative, silly, fun, and interesting.
8. You are allowed as many entries as you can think of
9. A winner is selected by the Elftown and Elfwood crews in a snowball war conference.

Submitting Entries

1. When you submit an entry, you must do it in this format:

2. Entries are to be submitted to this page. Use the Edit button to do so. Do not delete the contents of the page, and read the wiki_intro if you're not sure.
