We need a better name!

Post by cal_el on Thu Aug 14, 2014 1:06 pm

Hi everyone and welcome to our new home!

Sadly we have a not so original name at the moment: NotTheNowGamer Forum

We can do better! Please give suggestions below.

NotTheNowGamerForum  kind of reminds me of not the 9 0'clock news...

Well Im glad to be here... this is the second time I have kind of been in this position.. a bunch of people left the official Nintendo forum when it became a really bad place years ok .. they Ended up forming a forum called ONM Haven which lasted a few years

So here is a few ideas thrown out

Gamers Haven
Independent Gamer
N-PS-X Now

I'm also in favour of keeping the name, only because I can't think of anything better tongue 

Anyway, seeing as NowGamer had been our home for so many years I think we do need to keep the name in there in some shape or form.

EDIT: Oh yeah, ThePigMarcher is no more (that is so 90's) so it made sense to just use my PSN ID.

I have no probs with the name as is, though I wonder of Imagine would, as NowGamer is probably trademarked.

I wonder if the subhead could be changed or lengthened - we would not want to deter any non NGF newbies (quite the opposite, I'd have thought).

Everything like the subheading and address of the site can be changed at any time

Also I would say we need to change the name of the site to help it grow beyond the starting group of NowGamer members

I think we need to come up with about 10 names and have a Vote   ..... I just keep throwing suggestions out because no one else seems to have any

JoystickWagglers    

(I like it because it sounds like gaming and masturbation all in one and is thus immaturely funny)

I quite like Average Gamers, but feel it needs something more. Average Gamers something.

I do like "not the NowGamer forum"

If not that, then something loosely gaming related...

"Extra Life"
"Press Any Key"
"Infinite Lives"
"Checkpoint Reached"

Spencer House Rehab Centre tongue 

Seeing as most of us are old bastards this could easily be changed to Spencer House Retirement Home should either of those guys retire/quit/get fired.
