From a marketing point of view, the easier to remember the better. "Toonspace", even though it really doesn't do justice to Jakkal's awesome comic along with many others, but it's easy on the tongue and the brain. "WebComicSpace" takes too long to say.

Personally, "StorySpace.com" would have been a good choice too. Few syllables and a little alliteration to help it roll off the tongue.

well, along those lines "fablespace" would suit just as well. and a google search comes up with zip on that, too..

Erm.. I have have problems with both.. webcomicspace is, like yeahduff said, too long and clunky, and toonspace does sound awfully kiddy... To be hoenst, apathy has hit me hard over this one, which is a bit of a shame. Looks like it's going to be webcomicspace, though. Hmm, wonder if we can turn that K logo into a W...

I don't think story or fable space would be that good an idea, neither of them make it clear that this the common factor for all of the sites is an art based narraive.

Hmmm.... www.Spacehorde.com is free.

I like the image of the mental image THE HORDE invading and overrunning webcomics.

Yep. That's what gave me the idea.

I fit well and truly into the PG-13 and below category, but I don't refer to my stuff as kiddy stuff. I feel a little bit off claiming my work as 'toons' because I feel it doesn't do the strip (or many other strips) justice. And yes, this is bringing the more widely accepted, modern definition of the word 'cartoon' into play.

But honestly, I don't really care if people are coming to visit schoolspirit.keenspace.com, schoolspirit.webcomicspace.com, schoolspirit.toonspace.com or schoolspirit.lotsofspace.com.

As long as they're coming to visit School Spirit, all's fine with me.

I have no idea what the immense interest in doombees is though, that's one's escaped me...

Hey, I don't agree with it but, like I said, it's a hard thing to fight. Print comics have been trying for fifty years to get away from the superhero connotation and made practically no headway at all. Yes, to those educated in the field, the definitions are different, broader and more lofty, but they're a minority and they dhave little effect on the mutation of our language.

Language evolves. It always has. Let it.

Seeing that people don't really like toonspace or webcomicspace, I've started the FINAL list of names. We're going to suggest names in 24 hours. At the end of the 24 hours were'e going to vote on the best suggestions. The one that wins we put forward as the name and let it be the end of it.

Make your suggestions here

Spacehorde or WebcomicSpace, either are fine.(though I prefer WebcomicSpace from the two)

I rather dislike toonspace to be honest, I keep getting flashbacks of bugs going "What's up doc?".

Chris, I gotta hand it to you, you really have patience with us. :D


Anyway, as I said in other thread, both of them are too default, not catchy enough. Stick a pair of small animals in the name or something, and the name will became more catchy.

Fuck that, I have an alternative. So I shall vote for webcomicspace.com :D

Considering the results are currently 24/10 for webcomicspace, I think you have a fair chunk who would disagree with you.

I second that. Chris makes the announcement of the name change. A number of Spacers don't care for the name. Instead of saying "tough shit" he comes back and says "here, I'll let you vote between these two" (webcomicspace was suggested in another thread). Then he gets blasted for that.
My comic is called Mista Mojo. Not Mista Mojo Keenspace. Not Mista Mojo Toonspace. Mista Mojo. The domain really doesn't matter. Most people will book mark you if they like you and won't give a second look at it. Where it becomes an issue is when you print your domain on products. But that's easily rectified by spending $10 of your own money per year and registering your own.
McD, I fall into the 6000 spacers that don't care what we call ourselves.
From another thread:

Booyah. Many thanks to Sir Axonite for suggesting Go Daddy. :D

I'm just redirecting for right now . . . now I have to wonder, would it be best to set up the nameservers now, or wait until after the name change is fully in effect?

$9 at GoDaddy and you've got your own domain.

One thing to note, as I understand how Kisai has coded things and how things are generated:

We can give folks the choice of their domain. So we can do:

ToonSpace -- Safe comics.
StripSpace -- R and X rated (we'll have to do self-serve ads on this one)
SpaceChan -- Anime/Manga related, maybe furry.
WebComicSpace* -- The catchall

As well as

dotsig.org -- Donated domain

To do this, we would have to modify the DB slightly for signups, tweak the code to generate the multiple hosting domains. Any one of us can do that.
