Nice idea for contest I must say. Are we limited to one poem/player, or can we sent one English and one Czech for example?

Also, jury should watch for possible cheaters, that would just take existing love poem, and only exchange all words like love/sugar etc for the tank names ;)  :D

Seriously guy, you should look a bit before choosing tank name, 'cause Lorraine is not a women name but a place name ! It's like saying : oh, it's women day, let's make a poem to chicago !

Just for record http://www.lorraine....ce-lorraine.gif

The idea is great, but this kind of mistake kill all the credibility.

To be correct I think it's even a region, but also uncommon name (like post above). Words gender is feminine anyway... ;]

Hm I have one little propose, the two names ar from premium tanks( Matilda, Valentine), which I did not had a chance of driving, soo I do not have any feelings for them. :lol:  The third one is French tank that I did not make to grind it. Soo my propose to make edit about to get in some low tier free tanks or that kind of way. Who cares is the tank get, a women name or not it is important that u really love the tank( I know it is women day  :Smile-izmena: ). Soo after this long text I get to the conclusion for make a fourth name tank by FREE CHOICE tank to write, and reward for those are smaller but it will make this competition more interesting.
I think a lot players will agree with my oponion. Soo if u accept this, that will be some kind of democratic accepting of free choice creation.
For good of community.

P.S. (Srry for my English I have tooth pains)

Cheers  :Smile_honoring:
