Perhaps a new place should not be named after a forum that caused contention amongst players. A new start- a new name.

OK, this seems a little weird to me.  It feels like Rikoo is saying that this poll is not simply a vote about how to name an ocean, but rather he is reading more into it than a name people like or don't like -- including people who have no idea about the history of it.

So, are we voting about what to name an ocean?  Or are we voting about something else?  And if we're voting about something else, wouldn't it make more sense to tell us what we're actually voting about?

Maybe I'm over-reading the situation, and if so I apologize.

You are over reading the situation. :) 

I am saying that I will not give the reasons why we like these names until after the vote... just don't want to encourage votes either way.

Well, I think it's pretty much sewn up now.  I didn't realize fifty people even checked the forums this regularly.

There was very little moderation until Luna was hired, anyway.

Just want to throw in a small reminiscence back on Mod Strategos's "Pink Pen of DOOM" Wink.
But yes, there was a bit less moderation back then.

For me, no matter whatever you call the ocean, it's the Sea of ​​Prestige, or Ocean of Prestige. 

Neither this The Bitter Sea does not sound bad, and my voice just give this name.

How is that any different from any other forum? Are we allowed to recruit in the Tech support forum? Or post suggestions in the Help forums? Well of course not but that doesn't mean that it can't belong in it's own section.

We can discuss it in another thread. As I said, I will let everyone know why we picked these after the voting. Or, if you had a question about any part of the forums you can IM me or send an IGM.

We expected a new way of playing placed south of the ocean, but we only got more land.
I think the water was really bitter to sail...
