The Magazine Mascot Needs a Name!

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!

    Whoelse but Wynaut? By that i mean his name as Whoelse, or something like that. Gives it a name that is one of those five questions.

    How about…Journalist Y/Why or Wyatt? And I agree with Qmaz, question names could be a good idea.
