Suggest Forum Names!

Postby PonderThis » Fri Apr 02, 2010 11:32 am

Here is the thread to suggest new forum names. Quote the post after this one and then make whatever changes you would like. After a few days I'll take the results and then post a poll for each forum that will include all the suggestions and including "Leave It As It Is". I think that's an important option.

I wouldn't mind that, but I was going for keeping as much recognizable as possible.

i didn't realize it was your original list, even though your name is clearly in the quoted section... :|

well, my own opinion is that "subject line submissions" is kind of dry and of any of the forum titles, that's the one i think most needs to be changed. but, i'm sure ponder will make a poll on the subject eventually :P
