Rename me and help a new player! (in Contests)


Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] February 3 2009 5:14 PM EST

I'm letting the CB community give me a new name. I will keep the new name for a minimum of a week. Now, it would hardly be a contest if that was all there was to it. So here's the catch:

The naming privilege goes to the highest bidder.
Bids must exceed the previous bid by at least 100k to count, and must be in increments of 100k.

Contest ends on monday.


How does that help a new player, you ask? Well, I will be matching the winning bid, and donating both the bid and the matched bid to the next Supportership Contest.
Zenai has been so generous lately with holding these contests and I'd love to help with the next round of donations.

I am placing a cap of 5 mil on my matched bid.

So for anyone confused: If someone bids 3 mil, I will donate that 3 mil to the supportership contest, plus 3 mil of my own money. For a total of 6 mil.
If someone bids 6 mil, I will donate the 6 mil bid, plus another 5 mil of my own money to the supportership contest. Make sense?

Well. Let the bidding begin!!

Varcas February 3 2009 6:18 PM EST

Argh, beaten

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] February 3 2009 6:23 PM EST

Apparently I confused everyone with my wording.

The bids CAN be more than 100k over the last bid. I just want to be sure that people don't start bidding over each other by weird amounts.

Example: I bid 200k on naming myself. The next person can bid 1 mil, but not 999k. You see?

deifeln February 5 2009 3:28 PM EST

I bid two supporterships (I will purchase for contest).

Not sure what the CB value for this is.

To be named: deifeln2


deifeln February 5 2009 3:34 PM EST

I will buy three id Hakai keeps her name for 4 weeks and can find 3 other folks to become deifeln3 deifeln4 and deifeln5 for 3, 2, and 1 week respectively.

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] February 5 2009 3:40 PM EST

That is INCREDIBLY generous. 2 supporterships equals roughly 11 mil CBD, so that is the current winning bid.

For any interested in helping with a 3rd supportership, please volunteer to take one of the deifeln names here, and which one you would like.

Thank you again, so very much!!!

QBOddBird February 5 2009 3:46 PM EST

change meh

Goodfish February 5 2009 5:15 PM EST

I will be taking deifeln4.

BadFish February 5 2009 5:15 PM EST

I'll be taking one of the deifeln names. Not sure which one, but who really cares! Way to go deifeln!

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] February 5 2009 5:17 PM EST

sweet!! There's my 3 people. :D

Guess the bid is now up to...16.5 mil-ish :o

Zenai February 5 2009 6:52 PM EST

Not to Highjack this Post but for a While I thought that the CB Community was dying a slow horrible death. Arguements flying around like pesky insects and people acting like thier shoe size rather than thier supposed age. I must take those thoughts back after the past contest and the begining of this next one I have to say that I have been humbled by others fortitude and generosity. A personal Thanks from me for stepping up and proving me wrong CB!

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] February 7 2009 11:01 AM EST

Closing this on Monday, noon server time.

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] February 8 2009 5:10 PM EST

This ends tomorrow. If you have any last minute bids, get em in now.

deifeln February 8 2009 5:13 PM EST

Woot! It looks like I'm going to finally win a CB contest!

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] February 9 2009 3:56 PM EST

Deifeln wins with a bid of 3 supporterships at a cost of $11/each!--roughly 16.5 MIL!!!!!
Details to be discussed later. I will also send a confirmation e-mail as requested.

Please let me know when you would like to see the name changes done. Now or once the supportership contest begins.

Thank you once again, deifeln!! Everyone give that man a pat on the back when you see him!!

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] February 9 2009 4:02 PM EST

Just to clarify:

My new name will soon be deifeln2. I will be keeping the name for the duration of the namechange (4 weeks).

OB will be known as deifeln3 for three weeks starting the day of the name change.

Borgin will be known as deifeln4 for two weeks starting the day of the name change.

Tetra will be known as deifeln5 for one week starting the day of the name change.


Thanks to you guys, too. I couldn't have done this without you. Thanks to everyone for working so hard to help the new players!! :D

Deifeln will be paying for the 3 supportership winners to have their supportership status. I will also be matching 5 mil CBD of the bid to the New Player's supportership contest.

Wizard'sFirstRule February 11 2009 3:12 AM EST

meh, I am bored with being novice clonez, I will take deifeln6 and hope I have not used someone's trademark.

QBOddBird February 11 2009 3:20 AM EST

See you in 20 days, then - you changed your name on Jan 30th.

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] February 20 2009 3:50 AM EST

It is done.

Hakai = deifeln2, 4 weeks.

OB = deifeln3, 3 weeks

Borgin = deifeln4, 2 weeks

Tetra = deifeln5, 1 week


Thanks, everyone!!

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] February 26 2009 1:32 PM EST

Tetra's name service ends tomorrow. Please let me know what name you would like to replace deifeln5 with, and I will have it done. Thanks again!!! :D
