    Who shall decide the name of our Capital City? The President or the Citizens?

    If it's the Citizen's right to name the city, what shall we call it?

    Let's stick with the President naming the first city.

    I take it we are still using our method of "president, CoC, then according to registry"?

    unless we decide otherwise?

    If I am elected President, I will seek advice from the citizens, since I don't have any ideas for Japanese city names.

    okay i think we should hold to tradition, otherwise with everyone supplying a city name it could take ages to get through them all, which will be time wasted.

    Our traditional method let EVERYONE have the chance to pick a city name.

    if we go by consensus, individuals will be excuded from this process, they will find their city names ignored, and they will feel disenfranchised with the entire process.

    I make a plea that city names follow the traditional chain, allowing every citizen the chance to name a city.

    The question for the thread is on naming the capital city, which has traditionally been done by the President. I'm only talking about giving the honor of naming the first city to the people, and then returning to the traditional method.

    City naming then has traditionally followed the chain of command, except that once a citizen's city name has been used we go through the entire registry of citizens without offices before we start giving anyone a 2nd city name.

    The other main way to do it is to use city names in the order people registered as citizens.

    My problem with the current city naming method is that you get clearly un-Japanese names. So I was going to propose that names be done on a geographical basis (like if its a port, in the mountains, on a river, on a resource, ect), or citizen's ideas changed to be more Japanese. So Falcon's Haven would be whatever the Japanese for that is.

    I guess that'll give my Kenkyuusha dictionary a workout! ;) BTW, you can't enter double-bit characters (i.e., Japanese letters/kanji) into Civ3. You can in Civ2 though.

    Uh, no Immortal (and DaveShack). We scrapped that idea last game and just went with the Citizen Registry, after the President. The President was entitled to name the first city because of the Office and then it was decided that by using the Registry, 1. it would be a hell of a lot easier because no one wanted to keep track of all the names throughout the game, and 2. people saw that just because some citizens held office, that didn't entitle them to any other specia;l privilages that normal citizens didn't have. It was basically giving favor to the Government over the citizens without due cause.

    I suggest we keep on using the method that we used last game.

    Let's use the same method we did last game. The first president names the capital city, and city names are up to the citizens after that point based on order of registration.

    As for the CoC, do we even have one?
