Changing name sure would clear up a lot of confussion to newcomers. So I say yes it should be changed to Kureani Joukai. The kingdom has had that name for months now.

Why would either nations do something like that? Their population isn't made up of 100% samurai and action figures, respectively.

And another reason that Japan didn't change its name to samurai is that it was called Japan originally. Japan got its name long before the Samurai were around (well, not entirely sure on this since im not a historian, but it's most likely true). Why change your name just because a group of people with a certain title live on the land? I see no 'Crimson Heavens' in samurai, just criminal heathens (no offence meant, i just couldn't resist doing that o_o)

Furthermore, this isn't real life, let alone japan =O
This is a game, and the kingdom you lead was based upon the one from 2k1, as were the others. If it was intended not to be samurai any more, it would not have been called Samurai in the first place, and wouldn't have been based upon the 2k1 kingdom when made.

I'm not saying you have absolutely no right to change the name; it's your kingdom and you can do as you wish, or what your subjects wish. I just prefer samurai, partly due to nostalgia(Sp) :)
Anyway, let's not turn this into a big debate thread like every other thread and poll out there. I'm sure your man doesnt want that to happen to his poll :(

Oh Forum name. Dunno, soon Dustari will take over Zormite and Samurai and name them all 'Dustarian Empire', so i wouldn't bother.

Your kingdom was supposed to be one of Samurai Farmers, Nayoko, or at least based on one.

The forum name should not be changed, though the kingdom name probably should be. And, Nayoko should take the time to learn the history of her own kingdom - not just 2k2 history, but the 2k1 history as well.

:\ Oh but I do take offense to that. Yes before I became Leader Samurai was known for having scammers in the kingdom. But I made that my #1 goal to clean it up and I think I have done that. You can ask the leaders of other kingdoms they have seen my hard work and vigilance over this matter.
And Crimson is our color so thats why the name Kureani Joukai "Crimson Heaven" is so fitting. :D

Mmmh maybe you get all scammers out but i think there will come more and you cant stop that! but every other kingdom i think is also doing that what you do :/ and i think lyndzey did their job also pretty good before you! maybe some others not but she was the best! You dont know all leaders before you! Because you dont play Graal that long! Dont know if someone told you about the past of samurai!

KJ is a bad name for the Kingdom.
Change it back to Samurai or a other name:o.

I can't even spell the Kingdom name:p.

Nayako is a good leader, I think.

01-09-2004, 08:26 PM

but the name should really be changed i cant see that name any longer x.x
but its nayoko who decides :(

D1ce2
01-09-2004, 08:26 PM
My point to Majin, But lyndzey isnt the leader any more, She left it. I think it should be up to the kingdom to change the name, They wanted it to be this name not just nayoko.

Heh, is that why i saw like, hawk carters in samurai? o_O
And yes, you have 'cleaned up' but the kingdom is far from heavenly. And slapping a new coat of paint on a wall doesn't mean the graffiti isn't there anymore. Not saying you're not doing your job, you're a good leader :D but like, i really don't think there was much point in changing the name :rolleyes:

No one can predict whos going to be a scammer or not. But you can keep your eyes open and if does happen thats what the removal button is for. I also keep up with whats going on in other kingdoms not only Kurenai Joukai. Lyndzey was the one who appointed me leader but I had been around since 3 shoguns past so im not as naive as you would have others believe I am.
Maybe if you stop looking backward and look at whats going on you would have better idea about what is going on and stop living in past. Yes we learn from past, but we have to move forward. And as all things time changes and time changes things. We are at the begining of a new era the name change gives whole lot more possiblities for RP the thing that some have been hoping for. Heres your chance go for it.

Michael when I changed name you weren't even in kingdom anymore how do you know wheather or not the members wanted it or not?
You and hawk were the only people who objected but neither of you were in the kingdom any longer.
When I made name change I got 99% response in favor of the change.

I was new to kingdoms when Rahz was leader at the time. From what I remember he hardly was on and when he was never answered pms and stayed very little. As a matter of fact all the leaders before me had been on very little. And for most part ive had rights the entire time of my time in samurai and was able to help run kingdom from the sidelines. Ive tried to make a difference by being available to the kingdom members, to make it a better place and fun for them. A good leader is not absent and should not let the kingdom run on cruise control.

So it is all depending on the person and there 'Koolness' to change a name. There for, I belive nayoko is kool and i think she should keep the name =)

Because whatever it's called, it'll always be Samurai in the minds of most, and that word will be the first that comes to mind when you think about this kingdom - people are lazy ;)

That's ridiculous. If only everything worked that way. If it did then we could start complaining about the bad RPing or lack of RPing displayed by kingdoms such as Samurai and then she would start enforcing strict rules and such. It obviously only works if the person (her) wants it to.
