Vote for the kitten's name!
« on: September 06, 2014, 10:51:58 PM »
What's in a name?

Just as the whole TeamYu.net community is jointly responsible for looking after the orphaned kitten, so too is everyone responsible for choosing her name.

Please vote for one of the options above, and feel free to change your vote at any time. The most popular name at any moment will be displayed on the kitten's page and above her cardboard box on the front page.

In the event of a draw, the name will default to "Kitten".

Choose wisely!

Shenmeow sounds like a whole new sub-franchise that could fund Shenmue III. :) Paging Suzuki-san!

I don't know why, but every time I play the game, I always name the kitten Mimi?

I used to always try Sasuke but nooooo, the cat is a girllll. Even when I gave up in the cat, she would still end up as mimi. (I hate that name thanks to the drew carey show)

My vote goes for Sasuke...this will be my version of hacking the game.

"Chibi, you cold?" sounds right to me. :)

NO WAY! That's a boy name. Kitty's a girl.

I'll think of something. I'll ask the others too.

Oh man, Fangmei should be in there as an option, hahaa. We don't have to strictly keep to the ones available in the game, do we? What do you guys think?

Well, that all depends. If the site is to emulate certain features of the game, then we should keep it as close as possible and stick to the original options. However, if the site is more of a tribute/love letter to the game, then there would be nothing wrong with us "adopting" our own Shenmue kitty and naming it after a character.

I think it would confuse newcomers to find the kitten referred to by another character's name. They wouldn't know it was deliberate, so their first impression would be that Team Yu knows nothing about Shenmue. Besides, the only way the name will automatically update across the site is if the poll has a finite set of defined answers.

Interesting that there have been ten votes so far and not one for Tama.

Lol, I wouldn't want the cat to be named after any other character though.  Only Fangmei because of that 1 scene.

Even if my Sasuke vote doesnt win, I'd like Chibi. I still see this when I hear the name mimi.
