View Full Version : Newsletter title contest!
10-18-2001, 10:07 AM
For those of you who don't know about the newsletter I am working on, here is a link to the first one I did a while ago.
link to newsletter (http://188.8.131.52/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=699)
The newsletter needs a title! Therefore, I am starting this newsletter title contest. It is most likely that no one will ever reply to this post, but I've got to give it a try anyway.
So, the title will have to be appropriate, yet catchy and clever...
I am running out of words to describe this, so, in simple words, come up with something good (not excluding funny ones), and we will choose between the top 3 title.
As for the prize for the winner... I am also taking suggestion for that as well... ;)
1999-2001: Team 192 GRT
2001-2002: 100, 114, 192, 258, 481, 814...
P.S. By the way, the second test launch should be out tonight... There will be a new post for it, and it should get to people's e-mail box.

I would like to try avoiding certain name in the title, such as FIRST or Chief Delphi.
I am not saying they are not good for the title, but I really want to avoid causing confusion to people and make them think that this letter is coming from FIRST or Chief Delphi...

I know those are REALLY rough, they just sorta came into my mind. Maybe they'll spark something for someone else, or I'll think of something better. We'll see.

These are just ones I went nuts with after making a convenient stop over at the Rhyming dictionary (http://www.rhymer.com/).
Robot kumquat Jackpot
Although some of these random ramblings I enjoy, I'd have to say a fave of mine would be Gracious Journalism... good luck finding a title. And I think Dean and Woody action figures with kung-foo grip and balancing wheel-chair action would be appropriate prizes. :p
