I’m not justifying anything. Me and my friend came up with Jinxy as a cute name. I involved the name in my art, therefor one of the reasons I want Jinxy to win is because it’s involved with my art. It’s not the only reason I want Jinxy to win. I just listed out several reasons i think Jinxy is a good name. And clearly people agree.
Selfishness is not a bad thing.
I guess you haven’t though about selfishness and it’s roll in the survival of everyone. It is inherent in every action we make. It’s a necessary part of life and it is not a bad thing by any means. It can be used harmfully, it can be used harmlessly and it can be used beneficially.
And again, if you’re skeptical of that claim find me a completely selfless action. Lets hear it. I’m all ears.

Yeah I suppose it is selfish, But everything any of us will ever do is selfish. behind the intention of every decision is a little kernel of selfishness. Seriously, find me an act that can be described as truly selfless.

There are other reasons to vote for Jinxy. If you like the art and the name I picked you are just as justified in voting for it as me. Additionally Jinx and Sphinx share similar sounds, The feedback is in, Jinxy is widely considered to be a cute name. A Jinx is wicked magic which is consistent with the sphinxes abilities. Jinxy is a Cat name.

There, plenty of reasons to vote for Jinxy that have nothing to do with me. I’m just being vulnerable and letting you know why I’m here and why I want Jinxy to win.


That doesn’t really justify the action. That’s basically boiled down to: Yea it’s bad BUT someone else is gonna do it anyway so it might as well be me, right?

I’m not necessarily fond of that way of thinking but then acting like there are more benefits to it when you stated your true intentions…
To each their own I guess, we’ll just have to wait and see when the results are in

First of all and most importantly, please don’t bring logical facility speak and logic gating into a bloody mlp naming thread tibs fedora We’re naming characters. This ain’t a deep think.

I don’t… I don’t think you know who I am. I suggested the name Jinxy, because I have made art that I’d like to keep relevant.


I’d also never name the sphinx Kusu. I have specifically pointed out the problems with that name several times. Its not cute, it’s weeaboo babble, it means fart in Tamil, There’s a copyrighted product named Kusu already, Kusu suggester was caught sock-puppeting.

I’m not even 100% on what you are calling me out on. Did you think I liked kusu? Am I logically incorrect for not liking Bastet? XD

I’m not calling you out, didn’t know who you were, I could care less for Kusu, that was an example, and I’m not trying to argue if this is what we’re doing, I’m just saying. Nice art by the way that’s cute; however, Jinx, it’s a good name for a housecat and Jinxy sounds like a pet name but when relating to an iconic Egyptian Mythological figure. Not that anybody cares about that. Well Idk…

And you mentioned to name it so your art has relevancy…well okay, that sounds a bit selfish, to name a character so your art makes sense, what of the rest of us who gots to call her Jinxy? The way you worded that.

Maybe Giza would have been a better name I’m gonna change my vote

But the Egyptian pantheon totally does exist in Equestria. They’re literally in the temple room! And isn’t that exciting! Fandom writers! Artists! Assemble!

Im lookin’ at you with a poker face right now…cause Jinx and whatever above is better

pfft yea okay, try to apply logic to something that already is off the deep end. I’m afraid it’s too late to apply logic at this point.

Call a Sphinx Kusu, but not Bastet…alright walks away

Only problem is. Sphinxes are canonically not gods. They are guardians of sacred god tier treasure
At best they have been described as avatars of curtain gods, but never the full on thing.

I mean… she is. At least partially so.
As long as your selection is in the top 5, you make it to the next round anyhow. I’m super excited about this character’s name. (hence why I haven’t shut up since this naming process started XD) I draw this character a lot and my suggestion actually stands a chance. It’s a good feeling, even if Jinxy is out-voted by a cat pun. It’s a cute cat pun.
I don’t care and I’m thankful and happy to be here.
