Hey all,

I'm currently working on getting the new Judge website stuff up and going. One of the new features will be a judge content generated blog. I'm looking for a name and wanted to hear some suggestions. Here are a few of the "rules" -

Must sound mostly professional
It should have a casual slant to it
it will be part of the cryptozoic.com domain
it will contain regular content from CZE Judges

Let's go old school...

To Judge, or not to Judge

My first idea was "From the Bench."

It relates to how justices hand down their "Opinions" on cases "from the bench." Since that's sorta what the Blog would be doing, I thought it fit pretty well.

I tried coming up with other funny twists on legalese terms, but they were either too abstract to the point where the reference was lost, or were far too formal-sounding. So..."From the Bench" is my submission.

My vote is on the thing people yell across the room when they need us. JUDGE!

Though if it's from the Judge's perspective I suppose it should be called Overruled! I've never played those games, is that a thing?

There's always lrn2play I suppose.

How bout "Just be patient" since that seems to be the theme of your judging and volunteer program.

Insights from the perspective of the judges: "The View from the Floor". It's simple and flavorful. ;)

Totally inappropriate, but I'll say RTFC? (Honestly, how many times do players answer their own questions when they read you the card text?)

Okay, more seriously:
Rules to Play By
Judge!
The Zebra Diaries (more appropriate if we still had the old UDE black & white shirts)

The Judge's Call

i thought of this name because as judges, we need to answer any call and to the best of our ability, make a correct call on multiple situations.

I'm so making a T-shirt with that for my local Battlegrounds XD


My take on the name:

By using Society it makes it sound posh and we can wear top hats and monocles. :)

Most of these are great ideas! Some more direction

- We can't call it generic things like Judge! or CryptoJudge. It has to be branded as something "cool for judges". It should be something witty, yet concise/short.

PS: can we use the word Judge in the name, and is there anything specific that we should avoid using in the name (besides the obvious, like slang, of course)?

Uh-huh. No. :-P

From the Bench is my favorite of the suggestions so far. Maybe something with Game Master, too, though I'm not sure what.

Qome questions:

Should it be WoW related, or more General?
How many words would you take?
Do non-judges have to understand what it is about, by reading the blog title (if yes, this would rule out certain abreviations like "OCR")

I like the sound of using Appeal in the title somehow, but I'm struggling to come up with anything quite catchy enough.

In the mean time, lol option based on one of the first things I learned at NACC: "The J Stands for Janitor!"

Back in the Heroes of Azeroth set there was an Alliance priest ally that had my favorite flavor text ever printed on a card. Loosely put they were words about leading or healing a raid. As it feels this is what we are doing in our duties at times, it is from that card I submit my suggestion: "Herding Kittens"
