I vote for a name change. Having a Z at the end of TG Forum makes me feel old or nerdy or something. I'm not comfortable having it called TG ForumZ.

Does anyone else want it changed or am I on my ownsome here in wanting a forum I can be proud to tell other people about. and stuff.

I don't like the 'z', but...

There's a used car dealership near my house that has in lights 'Used Kars'. I guess if I can get over Kars instead of Cars, I can get over forumZ instead of forumS.

Mike.

I want to know who <i>likes</i> the 'Z'.

How old are you and does your mom know you post here?
November 8, 2005 3:04:06 AM

no i see what your saying...

adding the Z is more like a young Punk in his haxZor Days lol


the Z makes me think of something immature like WAREZ or some kinda hackor term... PwnZ.. lol or something like that. hahah idn


i like the original THG forum or just THGCC Forums... something that sets us apart from kids and professional Computer geeks!

There is perhaps something else to consider:

Does 'z' help you remember the name, specially as compared to the other 1 million forum"s" out there :wink:

Not particularly, I link to the forum from Toms site anyway so I don't need to remember anything.

I don't see how it will also help new members as they should also link from the main site.

It only helps me remember how bad the 'z' is.

Truth be told I could go either way. I personally am not overly keen on "forumz", but then I'm already crazy, so it has no where new to drive me. :mrgreen:

Of course, we could call it an Information Forum so that we can shrink that to TGIF. :wink:

:roll:

:idea: Or a little more seriously, maybe we could have a contest to name the new place.

My suggestions

"Ned's Acid Bath"
"Toms Guide Commuity"
"TG Forums"
"Tom's Social"
"Michael Jackson"
"Ned's Love Shack"

Pick your favs.

:o  You mean the URL changed? **smacks self** I only just noticed. Of course it would. Goofy me. So yeah, me too. But hey, a rose by any other name ... still has lots of painful thorns. Ouch. :twisted:

Meh, I liked the way it was b4 the change. Too damn many forum categories for my taste. (But do like custom avatars)

The "Z" seems a bit immature to me too.

EDIT: Somethings fvcked up with the pollage. All I'm seeing is something like "vote_text_option". Must be on my end, other polls look the same.
December 23, 2005 2:38:02 PM

um,the poll has messed up? :?
December 24, 2005 7:19:32 PM

I see the problem with the vote options... working on it.
December 24, 2005 8:56:12 PM

cannot replicate this problem. So we leave it until/unless it happens again.
