    We have a city named "Red Dot" which was apparently given that name as a default value until we come up with a better name. The nomination process is now open for renaming of this city.

    There is no set timeline for this process, we'll see how it goes and adjust accordingly.

    I just remember it from the movie "The Ice Harvest" (which wasnt so great.) The city they were in was called Witchita Falls. On a wall in a bathroom at a strip club, "As Witchita falls, so falls Witchita Falls."

    Then again theres also the city of Wichita Falls in Northern Texas (but I only leanred about that by just googling now.)

    Or maybe you were even thinking of Wichita State (not Witchita) who made it to the round of 16 in the NCAA (National College Athletics Association) last year in the Final Four Tourney (which btw I bet a lot of money on and lost.)

    Anyway, who knows why it sounds so familiar? But the **** written on the wall in that movie was catchy as hell.

    I thought of Licentian Folly right off, but didn't toss it in for fear of being seen as too negative. I guess that fear was ungrounded. :lol:

    Hey Nobody, why dont we just call the country Frogland, and we'll disband our army.

    (No I dont mean to insult you French)






    I know the French posters here havent bothered to read this long into the post, so, yes I do mean to insult them.

    What do you want when we elect nobody in an election.

    I'm thinking about changing my name to Abstain so Nobody and I can have some real great elections.

    I voted abstain in many elections...but I did vote for nobody too.

    Watch your French comments..RL politics are uncalled for in this game

    I do quite like "Red Dot", however, we could go for a variant on that Abbott & Costello routine and call it "Where": "Send the spear to where?", "Yes.", "But where???" etc

    In honour of a former president, we could go for 'nowhere'. "It's a real nowhere kinda town - nobody lives there"
