do really that many wimen play the dg??
nice to know only half think Im sexist
Half is an overstatement, but there certainly are a few female citizens and it would be a shame if others were put off in future just because a proportion of the male population was suffering a rush of blood away from the head at the beginning of the game.
seriously though, did anyone who made the suggestion of using carmen electra actually mean it? I doubt anyone really did, so theres no need to make a fuss about it.
A handful of ladies participate in the game and I would not wish to offend them with a pin-up flag. By "half the population" I meant actual population as in the country, world, what have you. If you can easily imagine a large number of people being legitimately irritated at a flag design then it's not one we should adopt.
Since SirJohn added a footnote to his post before last saying "this is a serious suggestion", at least one person quite possibly did
EDIT: Consigned Shaitan to x-post hell. Now there's an achievement
@Immortal - Yes, it was proposed in jest but the jest turned into an actual proposal.
ah I missed that one,
Sir John -> democractic process, so you'll probably have to make it yourself, and It'd be hard to get any real support.
I see, I see, Im beaten...
Alright, here's my first proposal. A rough draft. The "Z" like symbol is the alchemy symbol for gold.
Hmm, I just saw an image like that on Google - without the letter.
Can I see one with a Roman numeral 3, Plexus?
Maybe the Imperial Eagle instead of a monogram?
Or what about some latin? Everybody loves archaic dead langauges. It could be fun. Annoy me, Gil, everybody who has some way to speak it. We could have it be something about us.
Worse comes to worse, weve got the 3 V's.
A she-wolf has saved the lifes of Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome according to mythology. So I think we should make use of this holy animal of the Romans when creating something like The Great Seal.
S P Q R
good idea. Incoperate the Lupe with the SPQR, Mabey make it SPQF?
hm, I'd like to see Plexus' flag with an eagle or a wolf. especially wolf, since the eagle is used so much in the real world, but we never see a flag with a wolf on it.
Ohh, nice. I think I like the wolf a bit better.
what about our latin sugestions? Veni Vidi Vici? Venibus, Vidibus, Vicibus? Pax Romana? Pax Nobiscum?
Separate names with a comma.
