Greetings people of Hyperion!
Today I'm just going to briefly discuss something that we've mentioned at times in news posts, on polls, in website chat, on the servers etc..
We've been thinking about changing the name from Hyperion but we aren't 100% sure if we want to. It would be a great change and a big change for everyone but not to worry, the Hyperion domain name will still belong to me and it'll just be used as a redirect to link everyone to the new site and servers.
As much as we'd love to change the name we don't want to change it without consulting anyone about it, so I've decided to open this up to the community and actually allow everyone to suggest a new name for Hyperion. Don't suggest silly names, taken names, popular names etc... I don't want to be seeing Hypixel, PixelHype, Hype or anything like that. We want something classy, fancy and that'll catch on and people will remember it, we don't want it to be a long name like "SuperUberUltraMegaLegendaryHyperionOfMCServers.KingOfTheWorld.com" we want it to be short, sweet and to the point when it comes to a new name. When suggesting a name tell us what it means because I know lots of people always think Hyperion is because of Borderlands but it's not.
Once we collect a decent amount of names I'll put them into a poll and everyone will get to decide on which name wins. BUT... Here's a little catch. Just because you vote and one of them get's the highest amount of votes doesn't mean it'll win.. The top 3 names on the poll will be put into a random generator that'll generate 1000 times and the name that wins the most will be used.
Now let's quickly discuss the prize to the person who has the name that wins and the name that'll be used forever. The winner will get a fancy tag on the website and we'll receive the highest rank on all servers..
Now this is a massive change for Hyperion but this'll stay open until September 20th and the poll will begin on that day and the poll will close on the 20th of October. The new name will be used for the new site and will take affect on the 20th of November.
Thanks for reading this and I cannot wait to see what everyone suggests.
