…that is, the name Wyatt! Yes, you have chosen Wyatt as the most popular name for our Wynaut mascot. Except for those who voted for something else of course, but the majority has spoken with a decisive 11 votes! Cheers to ‘S’ who suggested the name as well; your codename shall forever be highly honoured.

Howzat was only a few votes behind it, and Whoelse and Walter another couple behind that on 6 votes each.

Our Wynaut was indifferent about the decision, seemingly more interested in the prospect of making a name for itself. May its name bring good fortune!

Having found an identity this ‘lil Wynaut can sleep easy.

You can choose up to three options. The poll expires at the end of the month, and hopefully by then or even beforehand, the Name Rater will give his two cents on them!

As a side note, our forums have undergone a scratch. It is unknown who or what is currently responsible for the scratching; maybe it was a large Skitty or somesuch. At any rate the forums have essentially had a restart, so if you want to join in the excitement and shout suggestions on what threads, sections or events involving fights to the death we ought to have, don’t hesitate to jump in!

The Magazine Mascot Needs a Name!

Monday, July 9th, 2012

Current readers will notice a change to the site; the banner at the top has changed to show off the mascot! Courtesy of An-chan for the Wynaut and Bay Alexison for the snazzy banner.

The mascot may not be surprising, but it’s not just a Wynaut, it’s a journalist Wynaut, at your service! And it desperately needs a name. After all, nicknames are all the rage these days, but we’ve been recently banned from the Name Rater’s house after asking one too many times about his opinion on our frankly amazing nicknames which he didn’t share the opinion of.

Hehe, Bobbaffet. You’ll never get old.

Thing is though business is slow for the Name Rater these days, and to make it up to him we decided to allow him some employment opportunity! That’s right – the Name Rater wants YOU! Either comment here or on the forums with nicknames idea for the Pokemon we just analysed in Wynaut and Wobbuffet, and he’ll rate them for you! Be warned though that he’s a bit grumpy. Just a bit.

Meanwhile, we’re having a competition to the name the mascot. This is how it’ll go: you can post in the fancy forum thread or here via a comment to suggest a name – or two, if you so please – and then we post all those names as a poll and choose a name for the lil’ fellow like that. Makes sense, no? And to make it fun some guy in a hat will make fun of your nicknaming ability. So what are you waiting for!?

You have a week, two max to get those suggestions in!
