    No, but this is silly.

    Agreed.
    Who in the marketing department thought this was a good slogan?
    +1 vote from me. Not sure that slogan is very appropriate and it certainty isn't a good idea. Normally the phase “silly for inset name” is when your talking about someone madly in love with someone else for example Dave is silly about Sally. So saying Are You #Silly4Tilly? Is saying are you madly in love with Tilly. This PR comes across as unneeded sexualization of the Tilly character.

    They gave Mary Wiseman a #Silly4Tilly shirt during the Cryptic/STO portion of the Los Vegas convention. It wasn't created by Cryptic or PWI or CBS. They might have mentioned that hashtag during 'AfterTrek'. I only watched that after show show a couple times, so I wouldn't know for sure. But yeah, those shirts are real, by a separate company that prints shirts.

    Star Wars gets Rose we get Tilly.

    At least Tilly has a better script to work with.

    This looks like a refreshing and positive challenge for STO player's to step up to. Obviously, this contest isn't for everyone. So not everyone will participate. I look forward to reading the winning entries.

    Being in love with someone isn't sexualizing them.

    I agree.

    A person can love work (what people call careers), love life, love great movies and/or food, and even have loved ones.

    Lolol can I post a picture of my kitty ? Her name is Tilly and she is definitely silly.

    I can just see your kitty riding around on a T6 Crossfield ship... :smiley:

    I like Tilly. She's one of the better characters on DSC. She's one of the more interesting and endearing characters, faults and all, and brings her own sizable assets to DSC's ensemble... *cough*

    Anyway. I don't like this promotion. It's... bad. Really, really bad. Like, almost as bad as DSC's season 1 story arc bad.

    lets just carry on to ignore Discovery ever existed.

    Trying my best, but CBS is pushing that garbage HARD.

    Is Tilly the only likable character in Discovery?
    Sometimes I think I play STO just to have something to complain about on the forums.

    But the saying “Silly 4 inset name” isn’t used for loving work, careers, moves, food and the rest. Its about a person acting silly while trying to impress someone they are in love with. Or on a night out it’s used to describe someone who fancys someone else and is acting silly to impress so they can get it bed with them.

    It doesn’t feel appropriate to be using a slogan like that here.

    If it’s one person no. But asking everyone who loves or fancies the Tilly character to use that tag could be seen as sexualisation of a character. It’s certainly a very creepy slogan. They should focus on the good points of the character for what she is. Not because a bunch of people find her attractive and have a crush on her which is what the slogan is about.

    Perhaps its a culture thing, but around here no one in there right mind would use a slogan like that. Well perhaps a nightclub or bar saying are you silly4xxx bring them here to pull.

    If it was something like #Hot4Tilly you might have a point but you are seriously and deeply overthinking a hashtag they just wanted to rhyme with her name. Chill.

    The people who like TRIBBLE like TRIBBLE, everyone else hates it!
    I neither like nor hate Discovery. I rather enjoyed watching the first season, analysing the obvious plotholes and everything else that's not to my taste with it. But as soon as I see someone rant about "social justice warriors" and "political agendas of the writers", I know I've just witnessed a political agenda: a backlash, reactionary, anti-egalitarian, inhuman one.

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to what Cryptic has come up with in-game, too.

    PS: To ask Cryptic to not promote their new content? You really are a marketing expert...

    I think they'll assume Cryptic will drop everything they've made in the last few months and all plans they've made up to the next anniversery if not even beyond that. Just to appease them and them alone, it's "I don't like DSC therefore Cryptic shouldn't made DSC content" the fact there's more then one of them doesn't change their selfish agenda.

    Honestly I think they've lost it with this hashtag. It has got to be the cringiest thing I've seen them ever do.

    You've managed to both make and invalidate your argument in the space of one sentence.

    You know, sometimes, Character Shilling works well. For example, John Wick who spends most of his time awesomely showing why people says he's not the boogeyman, but the guy you send to KILL the boogeyman.

    This promotion is a good example of how many other times, this falls flat because it's overdone compared to what the character does.
