The Eve V - too strong associations with Eevee?


#1

Just a simple question, from the oh-so-nice-and-not-childish @pauliunas, what would you think of the potential association with Pokemon that naming the PF V might lead to?

P.S. This is just a silly, off-topics poll for those interested. :wink:

  • I don’t mind
  • I want the PF to be associated with Eevee
  • I don’t want to to be associated with child toys

I really really really don’t mind :slight_smile:


#3

Sorry to say this, but what a crappy poll is this?

Not just that it does absolutely not represent what @pauliunas stated in the other thread … Do we really have to waste our time on the personal offense you took from his comment?
Maybe you can sort it out in a private conversation (or a mature discussion in the naming-thread) but pls spare est of us with stuff like this :angry:


#4

I took no offence at this. No idea where you got that from.
This is just a silly, off-topics poll for those interested.

Coming from someone who plays those “childish games” that no one over 20 plays (except quite a bunch of people I know) and who checks out reddit (where in the Pokémon go subreddit there still are a huge amount of people - also partially over 30 are hanging around) and I don’t mind an unofficial association with Eevee the cute & adaptable and but also strong Pokémon :slight_smile:


#6

I also vote for a waterproof Pyramid Flipper with the name Vaporeon! :smiley:
Also a version with extra battery called Jolteon would be high on my wishlist :wink:

The one that started it all…

@Tirigon, take it easy. This is an off topic thread so participation is voluntary. I think the Idea behind thread is fun but I agree with you that thread should not be started by saying some of our eve family members are childish.

@nawthor, please edit start of your post accordingly. Let’s not start threads by igniting argument with certain members. I bet you wouldnt like if @pauliunas would start the thread same way:) Otherwise it’s a great poll:)


#10

I said “not-childish”. If that came across as sarcastic, this was not my intention. I was just trying to poke a little fun at @pauliunas seeming fear of being childish. I do not regard @pauliunas as childish.

If you have taken any offence at this @pauliunas, I am sorry. It was not my intention to offend you.


#11

For the record, I don’t mind at all xD it’s a fun thread and it’s interesting to find out what people think. @nawthor I hope I didn’t offend you by asking for it :slight_smile: the results are indeed very interesting and totally absolutely against my expectations. Maybe because the majority of our community is young people?


#12

Greeeat guys! So we count it closed)


#13

Offend me? How? I know very well your stance on things you regard as childish, so I was honestly expecting it to come up at some point.

I told you Pokemon is popular even outside the target audience.


#14

I’m totally for it because this name is doing everything I felt was lacking with the previous name. People are associating something with the product as well as with the company logo. It’s a simple name. easy to say.
P.S. I’m not a young person at all. haha


#15

I think it would be great if once we have full specs and dimensions if we could have a thread like this one where we could post links to Eevee or Pokémon products that are compatible with our product. Wireless mouse, pens, laptop sleeve perhaps?


#16

Sorry but that would be like bundling teddy bears with the device.


#17

Haha, I def never said bundle, in fact I never even suggested Eve sell them directly. All I suggested was perhaps have a little fun with the unofficial association of the V with Eevee and see what accessories one could find in stores or on EBay.


#18

Yeah I understand that. But IMO what you said would be hilarious, stupid (not necesserily in a bad way) and a bit creepy at the same time. Just like bundling soft toys with a tablet :smiley:


#19

While were at it why not toss in this guys twitter handle :wink: https://twitter.com/evleaks


#20

Agreed. Based on a recent poll on his own twitter account people apparently pronounce his handle as EEVEE leaks :smiley: https://twitter.com/evleaks/status/784176877803974657
