Nevertheless... It would be very useful to have versions of the logo permanently uploaded* so people can get to them and use them for things like the sampler.

Would I have any trouble if I uploaded it permanently to my Keenspace account?


No, you shouldn't. Let me and Kisai know what the account is, or ask Phalanx to have then put it up on Gear itself. She has the password to get in there and can put it up there. You can also PM me for my Gmail address and I can place it there too.

Neither name is good. Webcomicspace is too long and bland, comicgen is just rather unmemorable. Rather than take a poll, why don't you ask members for name suggestions? I'm sure we could do better than these two. :evil:

No way, Hozay! We did the suggestions game months ago. This affair has dragged on far too long as it is.

Yeah, half a page of dead topics is not an ideal front page status.

I'll work on that today, since we've moved Annoucements to the ABSOLUTE front page (aka http://www.keenspace.com).

Good grief, I can think of a handful of better names just off the top of my head:

DaffyPig.com
toonshowcase.com
satanrules.com
comicopia.com
krazykomics.com
stripspace.com
stripshow.com
comicspace.com (why do you need the "web"?
comical.com

Well, maybe they're not better but they're different. :)

*waits to see Arvo slaughtered*

The naming happened a while ago, and while I agree that perhaps the final choice was not ideal, people have gotten quite testy about it.

Personally, the renaming could go on for a year if we ended up with something kicking, but waiting for more than a few months to know your new URL is rather irritating.

DaffyPig.com NO. WARNER BROS COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT
toonshowcase.com Basically the same as TOONSPACE which is why this whole mess got started!
satanrules.com NO.
comicopia.com IT EXISTS http://comicopia.com/
krazykomics.com ALREADY SUGGESTED
stripspace.com ALREADY SUGGESTED
stripshow.com IT EXISTS http://stripshow.com
comicspace.com Already suggested by me, Pin and every smartalec on the forum and IT EXISTS ANYWAY http://comicspace.com/
comical.com IT EXISTS http://comical.com/

STOP! THE NEXT PERSON WHO OFFERS NAMES GETS IT!!!


And no, I'm not talking about 'some' that's for me exclusively.

The domains of half of those are also already taken.

Another couple were in the running for the vote but they lost the vote to Comicgenesis.

And yes, I am testy about this. With good reason.

For future reference:

Name Suggestion and Voting has been, and is now CLOSED!

DO NOT SUGGEST ANY MORE NEW NAMES. PLEASE.


Thank you. :)

arvo: DO YOUR HOMEWORK NEXT TIME.

You just PO'ed one of my mods. That is your one and only warning. We've already discussed names in multiple threads before this, and closed that out. You were told multiple times about it.

Now, if you continue to discuss alternate names beyond this post then you will be temporarily banned, and you will need to contact me with a damn good reason why you felt it was prudent to ignore an admin.

Hmm... that is a bit overboard. I didn't know Bob was posting else I wouldn't have bothered.

But for the record, the extra large font isn't directed just at arvo. It was to anyone else who is considering the same thing. Remember arvo must have been the what...5th? 6th? person to go "yuck I can think of a better name, here's a(n unresearched) bunch instead" after the voting was closed.

I guess it just grates when it's the Nth person doing the same action. Anyways, maybe we should just lock this thread now.

How about... we all go out and have a good stiff drink? :D

What, do you actually think I was going to suggest a name? ;)
