    Someone just emailed me the question: Do we need to send one name per email, or can they all be dumped into one email? - I say dump them all into one email, that'll be fine. :)

    personally I always wanted to name an agency "sleep" so I could say "I'm going to sleep" when really, I was going to work. ha!

    No. This means that if we dont like any of the name we don't HAVE to pick a winner.

    But. Judging by the ammount of cool and funny names we have recieved. I serously doubt that that will be the case.

    You digg??

    /K.

    Yeah there's some really great (and funny, and funky) names being sent in. I have no doubt that one of them will be on the agency door in he future.

    Oddly enough, there's already so much spam being sent to the namegame - *sigh* - those guys don't even wait a second do they? Apparantly the namegame won 0NE MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND United States dollars in some lottery already and has a uhm.... challenged penis. Go figure.

    I can't believe that GoldenPalace.com hasn't offered to buy the rights of naming the nameless agency yet!
