I don't know why I'm not asleep...

well anway, if we do indeed want out mascot to be mr. raccoon, he must have a name, soooooo everybody vote!

The suggestions I found from Jackie's post are:
Bandit
Beaker
George
Maya
Pixel
Brilliant
Chiller &
RGB

If there are any other suggestions, say so in a reply

I think I'm gonna give this a few more days so everyone gets a chance to vote, soooooo tell anyone who might not be procrastinating by hangin' out on the porch to get over here and vote.

I think the next item on the list of mascot stuff should be making an actual character out of him, like on paper / in 3D, or both... both is good

As for the stickers, Jackie, you should have more important things to be worrying about than a sticker, but if you can find mine from the presidential election, you're more than welcome to dig through my truck and take it.

I agree, both would be good.

Hurray, a sticker treasure hunt!

Darn, I should have also suggested "Vector" or "Bezier" (or however you spell them).
French raccoons rule!

how about we name it "we have too much time on our hands and watkins/clayton/fagan aren't giving us enough work at the end of the semester so we have all this time to talk about what name we should give a poor little racoon that probably got bonked in the head on its way to the dog pound."

Is someone disgruntled over the current results of the naming process?

j/k ;)

Voting over?

If so, here's the headlines for the UIW newspaper:
'Pixel' Wins Due To Moral Vote!

ok, I figure since a grand total of 13 people voted, we can keep this thing open for suggestions in the future, but as for now, our mascot's name is Pixel. Now as a Christmas assignment for everyone, we can draw up what we think he should look like, since the low-res pictures we have probably won't cut it for bumper-stickers or anything like that.

So everyone come back in the Spring with your Pixel drawings and we can have another vote!

No offense but those are pretty lame names for a mascot. Pixel? Maya? George?!

A good mascot should have a fun name. Pixel is just too common a word to be used for a mascot. And I'm not gonna even touch the other names.....

If you have to have a mascot with a common cg word then try linking or rhyming it with other words. Slurpy Sprite, CeeGee Mcgee.

You could also have something that is sort of an inside joke. Snoozy Q, Sleepless Lou, Brilliant Bob, Insomnia Sue..

Those are just examples of what you could be shooting for in a mascot name.

I agree, we should name it, Will

it's never too late to vote, and as for the lame names, all I can say is where were you when we were asking for the names? Those are some really good ideas, but it's not a great idea for us to be renaming our mascot everytime someone comes up with a better idea.

Pixel rocks. At least that is what the current majority vote says. ;)

here's my shot at a drawing, but if you like it, someone please do something with the body, I don't even care what it is, just do something with it.

Aww... That matches the raccoon's expression completely. Those eyes...

off the subject...

Jackie, what does your sig mean?

Acording to the Altavista translation, it says:
You eat also the cake and increase are high

procrastinating as usual,

I read her sig as "Do you also eat cake?" I'm not sure where Altavista is getting anything about "increase" and "high"

Yep yep, Kevin is correct... Babel Fish can be quite amusing, it comes up with the weirdest stuff. :)
