We're not really focusing on the games on the new site. Whether we have any or not has not been discussed yet. If we do, they will probably not give credits.

I've been through the list checking to see whether the site name is already taken and to pinpoint those that don't lend themselves to strong search engine optimisation.

If your name hasn't made the list that goes to poll, that's probably why. :)

Just going through some new additions and then you'll be able to vote.

If you any last minute suggestions get them in quick!

If this is going to Proboards, count me out. You may not have to worry about size, bandwidth and such but in exchange you lose control of the forum from the start with no ability to change the forum itself. Proboards is cut and dried for you, it is exactly like this site except they update the forums more often than the admins here do. So any modifications people want will be off the cards.

I wish you all luck, I hope everything works out as you desire.

Pie is a very reasonable reason for being distracted. In fact, pie is the one thing in this universe that attracts me with more force than gravity. It gets rather embarrassing if I go anywhere near a bakery, since being able to walk on walls until all the nearby pie is devoured isn't considered normal.

But I digress.

I'll quickly suggest these names:

RPLife (no spaces)
RP Life
The Roleplay Vault
and finally:
RP Network

The poll is now open.

Please ensure that you read the rules before posting.

Don't be offended if your name didn't make it this far. Unfortunately we had to bin a lot of them because they already exist or wouldn't serve us well in search engine searches.

Thank you!

Meow are we to assume that crossed out names thus far in the thread means that they were under the category of unsuitability for already being in use/not good search engine synergy/whatever?

Correct Skummy. I've been chatting with hosting/domain name people, and the found of this place, Ozental *prostrates self at mention of name* and after their combined advice and with the experience and knowledge of the Mods here, we've made some additional 'scratchings' from the list.

Should we adjust our votes accordingly? Because 2 of my votes are now scratched out. Should I re-vote, edited my vote or just leave to avoid a tally-saga? :-P

IMPORTANT: Today the site went down and we feared it was for good as the admins hadn't renewed our domain.

We advise you all to register on http://thelostarchives.boards.net/forum which has been used as a half-way house while we build the new site. We also suggest you follow @RPGFO on Twitter or join our Facebook group for any news in the event that something like this happens again.

Most importantly:

PLEASE BACK UP ALL OF YOUR RP POSTS OR ANYTHING YOU WOULD LIKE TO KEEP[/b]

Just out of curiosity, what does the Great and Powerful Wizard of Ozental (eyes averted whilst speaking his name) think of this mess?

Aaaaaaand there's another spam bot. One of the other reasons I'd like a new site where we can do something about this.

That was one of the pushing irritations that solidified my vote to make a new site. They could be easily weeded by at least ninety percent if we could implement a simple captcha.

Oz is disappointed in how things are turning out, but has offered his full blessing in our making a new site. We've actually been speaking with him quite frequently in progress forward, and he's provided invaluable feedback.

Wow, it is upsetting to see this site going. The only reason I ever grew as a writer was because of this community. If there is anyway I can help, I'd love to be more a part of the community as a whole.
