Here' we go again...

...I vote webcomicspace...it's not very catchy or anything, but I don't think it has to be. Comicgenesis sounds like it's trying to hard to be cool or something. Either will do though.

I guess webscomicspace sounds rather... unambitious? Comicgen does have a more hip factor.

Have you given any consideration to the multiple domains idea?

Fablespace
Furryspace
Scifispace
etc.

I still thing that's the best idea of the bunch. Whatever gets chosen here would simply be a solid platform to build from.

Not to mention unmemorable. Better to sound geeky than generic.

Well, It WAS one of the most popular ideas out there.
Caught in the headlamp glare of your own blinding vanity/Mesmerised by the stare of your shallow personality
Gorging the junk food of flattery you drag your fat ego around/Everyone floored by the battering you give to whoever's around
Oh Narcissus you petulant child admiring yourself in the curve of my eyes/Oh Narcissus you angel beguiled unsated by self you do nothing but die

I think one is easier to explain in words than the other. So I voted for ComicGenesis. Someone should really post these to places so more people hear about it. I'm not doing it this time.

Webcomicspace.com is really long and generic. Comicgenesis implies something new, fresh, modern, and comical. Hence my vote.

Comic something, something comics... much better. It's disappointing from a "spacer" context to lose the "space", but I'd rather have a name that is just the name, than a description.

Like "Blank Label Comics", y'know. Blank Label means something, sorta, but eventually it will just be the name. "Webcomicspace" will always just be a description... and I'd rather be hosed by a service with a name. Like Comic Genesis.

I like names that ring, and it does not have to sound cool. Keen had a good ring to me.

It implicates that webcomics as a mass fenomenon started from Keenspace, and in a way, that's true, because since Keenspace started, just about everyone's been able to make webcomics.

That way we can use RPin's logo, too. It'd be easy to turn into a G, right? For Genesis?

Or a C?

Uh...

Genchan is cute?
