Personally, I'm alright with starting this up early on. Same principle as the Ash x Iris thread really accept... well, more unknown.
What I'm not okay with is the state of the first post. Let's see some definition of the pairing, perhaps some reasoning behind it and discussion questions. To be more specific, I don't want to see a bland "Do you like it?" question because that can be answered yes/no. I know we're mostly running on speculation, but if you can't do better than what we've already got then this thread will be closed.
No, I disagree. I'm fine with this thread being as it is for now. It's a brand new ship, it needs new supporters, it needs a NAME. The very first Pearlshipping thread started like this, as did the first Appealshipping, the first Comashipping... in fact ALL the first threads on the mainstream D/P ships. I'm willing to be lenient, like I was with the Negaishipping thread (( Which now has a name, a fanbase and teasers coming up on Sunday so the first post needs changing to comply )).
Admittedly the rules need redoing, or rather tweaking, anyway. There's reasons why people go to BMGf more than here and I'm gonna crack the whip.
Alright guise, listen up. Now that we know what the two characters look like, as well as glimpses into their personality... any ideas for names? Currently it's a two way tie between Wishfulshipping (( The leftover name from the Negaishipping vote, although there's been talk of flinging Ash in it and making it a threesome )) and Greystokeshipping, cause of this;

Saying that it could be three way, with CultureClashshipping.
The chances of people knowing what Greystoke is, is the only bit that concerns me. There will be no end to "Why Greystoke? What's Greystoke?" (For those who don't know, first three hits on Google are very telling and we suggest you check yourself). Funnily enough, as much as I don't like the name itself, it suits them very well.
Before anyone asks, no, Tarzanshipping is taken (and so is Janeshipping).
Yaoi is a genre of homosexuality, not a synonym for it!
Get it right.
^ Dude, if there's gonna be a poll, which there will be, it will be done offsite like with the Negaishipping poll.
@ Toraphi: As said on BMGf, I truly prefer Greystokeshipping to Wishfulshipping, especially now we know a bit more about the two characters. Yet at the end of the day if enough of the fandom wish for it then... no choice but to fling it in the poll. Plus we may get better suggestions that the fandom will get easily...

You are honestly not the first.
As for your suggestions... Antipodeshipping could be seen as maybe being a little close to Antipodeanshipping, which is Newton x Zero. Possibly the same with Diametricalshipping as we have Diametricshipping for Karen x Dawn.
Tis fine. It's generally down to plurals and words with a one letter difference, but as said this is a mainstream anime ship. It's kinda sorta trying to play safe... and sides, Wishfulshipping is still a contender.
