What’s in a name? Maybe a valuable prize for you, if you come up with a new name for Yes-MLS. That’s right, we must change our name. Oh, we love our name, but due to the timing of when we registered the name, Yes-MLS we learned someone else had just trademarked the name a month before we got our registration in. We looked at all of our options, including challenging the registration, and due to possible legal costs with no guarantee of success, we have opted to change our name.
This opens the door to an even better name for our MLS and the chance for a few of our members to win valuable prizes. This contest will be held in 2 Rounds.
In the first round we will take 1 submission from any Yes-MLS member or subscriber. This name will be sent through an intial evaluation process to see if we could potentially register the name. Any name that cannot be registered as a domain name will be marked as invalid. We will select 15 Finalists to move on to round 2. Each name that moves on to round 2 will receive a $10 Starbuck’s Gift Card. Round 1 is from 11/1/19 – 11/15/19.
In Round 2 we will open up voting on the 15 Finalists. All Yes-MLS members and subscribers will have a chance to vote on the new names and If we are able to successfully register and use the name, the member/subscriber whom issued the name within the contest guidelines, will receive the prize mentioned below. We will also issue the 2nd and 3rd place prizes as listed below. Round 2 is from 11/25/19 – 12/10/19.
The Final Winners will be announced in the 1st Quarter of 2020.

- 1st Place – An iPad Air
