We should make a new Wire Forums with a free board

    First, I don't necessarily see why it would create any drama/arguing. Secondly, I really think you and I need to have a little heart to heart considering I was joking about being "elected" admin. Usually when I have an emoticon, unless of course it's this face ">_>" and any variations of it ">>, >__>, etc." I'm joking. Hence why I even did the grinning face. It wasn't meant to be taken seriously, though I do appreciate that Venom would vote for me as being admin on the new forum.

    Also, Travis won't do anything regarding forums anymore. He's told me numerous times that he's done with them and wants to work on his schooling and whatever else he does with his life.

    I'm against nominating new staff, just because it seems like more trouble than it's worth. We already have quality people, and it's not like our new place is going to need much moderating anyway, so why go through the hassle? Kat for admin and Mai for s-mod, if she's anywhere to be found, wouldn't have any problems with that.

    I'll create the thing and get at least the basics in place, if there are no problems with that, as soon as we have a name. We can work out the rest of the kinks there instead of here, once at least we all have an agreement of where we're going.

    @Rainbow - Past instances of speaking one's mind has ended with unnecessary drama. I'll leave it at that. I appreciate the normal response this time though.

    And hey, do whatever you guys want to do. I'll uh... sit this out.
  4. Archangel Sabre Well-Known Member

    Oh, no you're not. We still need a name dammit, and I'm clueless. T_T

    Courtesy of the Random Video Game Name Generator (I'd put a TM on that if I could remember how to do it):

    Communist Baking Siege (this currently has my vote)
    Hardcore Leisure Suit Experience
    8-Bit Ice Cream Wasteland
    Colonial Sunshine Blaster
    Return of the Equestrian Beatdown (that one's got "return" in it)
    Shady Forklift Fiasco
    Nasty Porn Shack (we might have to change our focus for this one)
    Combat Penguin House

    Obviously these are for lulz, but I figured it would give us random words to work with and put together to make a real name, like Colonial Penguin House or something.

    Or we could just go with Communist Baking Siege.

    Communist Baking Siege does have a nice ring to it ...
  7. Archangel Sabre Well-Known Member

    I also like Shady Forklift Fiasco. Ha-zah!

    I liked William's idea of having a one-worded forum name. It's simple, easy to remember, and you don't have all of these unnecessary abbreviations. "Hey, have you guys heard of SFF? I hear it's all the rage. Or how about that good ol' CSB." However, I don't necessarily think I'd be good to help think up names, considering I have a hard time thinking up usernames to begin with.

    After doing some research through Google, I've found a few acceptable names that I think would go well:
    Galore
    The Get Away
    Multiplex
    Mousetrap
    Uncharted
  9. Archangel Sabre Well-Known Member

    Of those, I like Mousetrap the best.

    My nomination: Cerebrospinal Fluid. ... I just like saying that. Or Troponin, another thing I enjoy saying.

    Or, we can call it Closing Time, after the best song by Semisonic.

    Last Forum on the Left.
    Texas Chainsaw Forum Massacre.
    Massive Orgy.
    Unidentified Typing Objects.

    Seriously though, I'll just throw out a ton of one-worded names... maybe someone can draw inspiration for a different name from one of them, because most of these sound more suited as guild names in a MMO.

    Defiance, Benevolence, Majestic, Explicit, Enlighten, Homeless, Avalon, Sanctuary, Syndicate, Arcanum, Euphoria, Covenant, Paradise, Exodus, Exalted, Exile, Radiance, Renaissance, Resurgence, Evolved, Fatality, Peace, Symposium...

    I guess I really don't care too much about the name tbh. Anything is better than Wireforums. I do like "Nasty Porn Shack" but... a free forum host would shut us down fairly fast for that one.
  11. Rainbow Deluxe Duchess of All Things Pretty and Music

    I like Unidentified Typing Objects and Closing Time. I was also thinking about Euphoria, but then I felt it would seem more as a forum for druggies than a community forum. >> I like Symposium, though, and Exodus.
  12. Archangel Sabre Well-Known Member

    I like Unidentified Typing Objects as well.
  13. William Well-Known Member

    Lol. That was supposed to have just been a joke o_o
  14. Venom Well-Known Member

    These are for rlz this time:

    Unidentified Typing Objects (yeah, I like it too)
    Utopian Renaissance (or something involving either of those words)
    Radiance is a good one-word name (as suggested by Will)
    Irrelevant Conjecture
    The Longhouse/Lighthouse/Roundhouse/Houseboat/something one-worded for a house of sorts
    Tiger Uppercut (okay, that one was for lulz again)
  15. Rainbow Deluxe Duchess of All Things Pretty and Music

    I was thinking about Radiance, too, but I like The Roundhouse. I just, I don't really get the "umph" that I would for a forum name from any of these. >> Not that my forum back in the day was much better. "Strangers with chocolate ice cream." SWCIC (swihsic, xD.)
  16. Venom Well-Known Member

    At least it was a unique name, if a bit of a mouthful.

    Also, it may or may not be that a "roundhouse" is in fact a house of any sort at all, and I may be referring to an offensive martial arts attack performed with one's leg.

    But that might actually make it cooler. :p
  17. Archangel Sabre Well-Known Member

    Radience would be cool ... is everyone for making that the name?
  18. Venom Well-Known Member

    You won't hear any complaints from me if everyone else is in agreement, but that doesn't mean I'm not still open to any other ideas.
  19. William Well-Known Member

    Dunno. I'm up for whatever really.
  20. PKT Forever /a/lone

    I kinda like WF...
    I've had to start over a lot of times before this. My own forums included, so, eh, even if this place dies I'll still be here at least for a while. I thought I'd take this place over but it looks like that won't happen anytime soon...if at all.
