RIP Tooth & Claw

Postby JimRob on Sat Feb 23, 2002 6:27 am

What the index page says is true. The name must change.

If comics are late for the next week, it's because I'm doing all the changes required to avoid being sued.

If anyone has any suggestions for names, feel free to mail me; but you'll have to be quick, as I hope to have everything 'adjusted' in the next few days.

Okay. After some brainstorming, here are four possible monikers.

1. A Fox's Fable
2. Albion Fuzz
3. Tame Things
4. Sybil

(The third, incidentally, was the original name of the strip when it was conceived.)

Vote now. I'm leaning towards 1 or 3; 2 is catchy but rather odd, while 4 is a bit nondescript for my liking.

Anyway, I vote for number 1

I've just reread my archives in full (for the first time, actually), and I've changed my mind. I really like Albion Fuzz, and it'll probably be the new title. My biggest reservation about it was that it does pigeonhole it as 'British Furry Comic'. But it is catchy, individual, not too twee, mixes modern and archaic, isn't trademarked, doesn't restrict me to looking at Sybil all the time (which I may not be in future, depending on the road she decides to go down), and starts with A (cheeky, I know). And I love the sound of the words. And there've been far worse titles for comics.

Ah, damn it. Albion Fuzz it is. I hope you can learn to like it, because I definitely do :smile:

Well, in my defence, I didn't know Pacella's comic actually existed until two months after starting. But, yes. I was. I like to think I'm doing penance for it by all the changes I now have to make, but that too would be a falsehood.

Oh well. I live and learn.

So doesn't this mean you have to change your DNS as well -> albionfuzz.keenspace.com?

I asked him about three weeks ago. He said he'd ask his legal bods. As yet, no reply.

I think I'll be applying for another KS account with a better address shortly, transfer everything over, and ask them to kill the old one.

I think it would be easyer just to ask Gav or Nate to change the DNS for you.

I see an Al, do you still have the pic of the olive with a spoon?

Righto. My biggest concern is to cause as little trouble for the KS bods as possible. I'll get round to that sometime this month.
