Name Thread











Here's the unedited, good, bad and ugly name list to date:

I'll update this with any additions from the forum.

We need to select names that are discriptive of an annual FJ event, not site or date specific, adaptable to web site and various graphic applications (t shirts, hats, etc). Additionally, short, catchy, friendly and fun would help.

Thanks for making that list, that must have been a pain. I'll take a look and pick my 5 favorites.

Seth

I narrowed it down to realistic ones, but if you want: "Rock Out With Your C*ck Out" or "Rock Out With Your Plastic C*ck Out"
That's fine with me :) I also took out names that had regional names in it like "FJ Cruiser Alpine Challenge '07", and "Toyotas Cruisin' in Colorado (TCC)"

Very good point! This needs to be setup so that if it's successful (ok, small if :p) it will not need a name change.

These are my favorites so far, subject to change:




FJ Summit 2007
FJ Cruise 2007 or FJCruise 2007
FJ Cruiserpalooza 2007
FJam 2007 or FJammin 2007
FJ Rendezvous 2007
FJ Crossroads 2007
FJ Rally 2007
FJCongress 2007
FJConvergence 2007

Simple and catchy, meet all the aformentioned criteria, describe a gathering, good for logos, promotion, memorable identity. Not place or date dependent.
Short is nice. Makes it easy to add FJcruiserforums.com modifier.
Example: "FJcruiserforums.com FJ Summit 2007"

C words are nice play on "FJC". Example "FJCrossroads", "FJCruise"

From a design perspective, all of these words make good pictures.

There were a lot of folks on the conference call Sunday, and so far only one (me) has submitted a list of FIVE names.

I suspect if everyone buckles down and picks five, the choices will be pretty apparent.

My 5 preferences in order of preference for reasons discussed above.:

1. FJ Cruise 2007 or FJCruise 2007
2. FJ Summit 2007
3. FJ Cruiserpalooza 2007
4. FJ Cruiserfest
5. FJam 2007 or FJammin 2007
5 1/2. FJ Rendezvous 2007


Can everyone please contribute today if possible. I'll compile results and we'll hammer out the short list here. I propose putting short list up for vote starting Tuesday next week and running 10 days. I'll compose a thread starter encouraging the group to stick with the choices and stay on topic.

Where did everybody go?

Any more opinions? Please contribute this weekend. I want to wrap this up and post survey on Tuesday. I'm leaving for Hong Kong on Wed. Let you know if I spot any copy FJs.

Okay so in my humble opinion...

I think no matter what, it should have the "X annual" blah blah blah.

That way it's noted that it's a big event and it's just the start of something really fun that hopefully carries.

For me:

1. 2007 FJ Cruiser Crawl
2. 2007 FJ Cruiser Summit
3. FJ Cruiserfest

Rock out with Your Plastic C*ck out, as one of the choices first posted, might win though :)

Well, without doing the math, I would say that puts Summit in first over Cruiserfest followed by the same 3 (in order if ranking):

1. FJ Summit
2. FJ Cruiserfest
3. FJ Cruise 2007 (or FJCruise) 2007
4. The X annual 2007 FJ Cruiser Fest
5. FJ Cruiser Crawl 2007

Putting both the year and the "X annual" could be a bit cumbersome... I would suggest using the year unless it would go to Super Bowl type of system, i.e FJ Cruiserfest 4 or whatever.

I think in the logo and merchandise design that does leave us several variants (year or number)...

I suggest that since it appears there's pretty much five hammered out, post the poll when you are ready.

I'd make the poll a sticky & close the thread so it doesn't end up being a alternative name-generating fiasco.

If someone wants to open up a chat thread about it then fine, but we have done what needs to be done in terms of providing direction and moving the ball- things like this can wrap around the axle wasting a lot of everyone's time... :)

Do your powers allow you to do that anywhere? Just curious :)

Thanks Valk. I suggest some small modifications:

1. FJ Summit
2. FJ Cruiserfest
3. FJ Cruise
4.
5. FJ Cruiser Crawl

I suggest we leave the dates and numbers off. Add them after a decision is made.

"The X annual 2007 FJ Cruiser Fest" is the same name as "FJ Cruiserfest" so redundancy will dilute the vote, I suggest go with one, the latter.

Let's add a new #4 ( or not ). FJam? FJCruiserpalooza? Rock with my plastic....?

Not my powers ma'am, but yours. :D

Heck, then just put the four up there and get the vote going... We have had enough input to have confidence in this group of nominees.

We're never gonna please everyone, and there will always be someone who wants to be cute & clever or throw something stupid/vulgar out there, so sticking & closing will make this as painless as possible.

*Edit- I just peeked and I do have the power! However, it is something Bostonian should do as the Chairperson...
