I think because "sheets of ice" is a phrase so it's slightly more clever I guess, but there's still the issue that they're relying on a username pun.

I mean if we want to start doing those then fine, that's great (and maybe the bar for titles is too high anyway) but let's at least be cognizant that it might open the floodgates for more username pun noms.

(I'll be taking that grump baton back now, tyvm)

I don't disagree, but I also think I might just hate all titles forever and am thus biased. :/ Only title nom I've genuinely liked since returning from hiatus however long ago was the updated title for Reck, and because of its nature as an "update" I question if that one even counts.

I didn't even like the Trojan Butterfly nom for Mina that much and I was the one who suggested it.

Nominate the real xofelf for Miss Mash!

She's a constant positive and passionate spark of energy that fuels our small Mish Mash community with oodles of love. We wouldn't be the same without her.

update: talks between me and esurio about the mass nomination began to break down after she insisted we refer to Skrew's title in our position statement as "utter shit" rather my preferred "parf", a portmanteau of "puke" and "barf" used earlier to rhetorically make fun of the color of Reck's username

we compromised on "just dumb" but by then it was clear we were of two minds concerning just how bad titles noms have been since mafia scum was founded like a decade ago

Damn it Shii. Now I can't use the twist of "xof is playing everyone" in the new Arkham. Thanks a lot. I hope you're happy.


In all seriousness though, I'm honored to be nominated for anything at all. Thank you <3.

I'm not sure "people" is the best term for them.
