Naming Boy Toy Update 1!
      by Callista Skip

Seppel, Niko, and I are back from our Valentine's Day weekend at the beach, and we were so pleased to follow along with the naming progress!

We have 53 names so far (including people supporting other people's submissions), and are feeling pretty good about what'll get chosen out of the hat come this Friday, the 21st, when we do our random draw!

Let's keep the ball rolling through these next few days! Look at the list of so-far submitted names here:

So many to choose from! Or submit your own!

Important "Vanilla" Announcement!

So many people chimed in about this that we had to just go ahead and make it known that we are officially accepting "Vanilla" as Boy Toy's last name! Whatever his first name ends up being, Vanilla will be his official last name.

I've taken note of the 6 people who had suggested "Vanilla" as his first name -- you 6 are totally allowed to submit a new name suggestion in this thread! Thank you so much for that awesome suggestion!

Here's how it works!

1) Week One - Nominate a name for him in the comments section below. To comment, register a Furoticon account! It takes less than a minute to register!

2) End Week One - From your nominations, we will have a random draw and choose 5 names. You can increase the chances of a name being picked by seconding someone else's nomination!

3) Week Two - Everyone will vote on the name they like best from those five! We'll run a poll on the front page, so you can see real-time results as votes roll in!


* You may only submit one name, once. This means you may leave only one comment with one name, one time -- if you leave multiple names in your comment, I will only count the first one, so make it count! If you decide you like another name later down the line, encourage other people to submit it so its odds are better! If we find someone replying multiple times with apparent submissions, we'll have to consider all of their posts null and void. You're allowed to post encouragement after your submission, though!

* NO CHEATING! Suspicious multiplying of accounts will result in a shut-down on your IP, which may shut out more people than just you if you share your network. While we expect and hope that we'll bring our lurkers out of the shadows to help with this community push, we want to make sure that everyone's getting heard equally, not just the guy who really wants to name Boy Toy "DeathMetal66" ;)

What are you waiting for? If you haven't yet, comment below now to give him a name!

Sorry, comments are closed for this article.

Okay... Now we just need a Furre named "Chocolate", and we'll have a complete dish of Neapolitan ice cream. Winter-break theme set, anyone? :P
