    Default The Forum Name

    Since it shares a name with the Alpha Waves mailing list:

    Should we rename the forum?

    I was gonna vote no, but as you pointed out, we share a name with the mailing list, so a diferent name might be an idea.

    Fiorello: Well, I don't know about that...
    Driftwood: Now what's the matter?
    Fiorello: I no like-a the second party, either.
    Driftwood: Well, you should've come to the first party. We didn't get home 'til around four in the morning... I was blind for three days!

    Yah, if it weren't for the mailing list having the same name, I would say there is no need, but for the sake of avoiding complications...

    It could also be fun to hold a "Name The Forum" contest

    How about 'The All New, All Different Alpha Waves' in honour of Vol 3

    Well, I'm curious to see what the letters page in V.3 is called. That may influence any final decision.

    It's just called "Alpha Flight"

    #1 features a whole page of Scott talking about why he loves AF.

    Default Name That Tune...

    What about "Clearly Canuck" or "Canada Not-So-Dry"?

    I don't really care what it is called, I can usually think up quite a lot of names for stuff but I'm not in Usual mode

    Well, it seems most people are either in favour of a change, or indiffernt, and that would lean me towards changing it. If anyone has suggestion, as many as you like, please send them to me! You can do so either in a private message, or through email (ben@alphaflight.net). I'll gather them for about a week, then I'll post all the suggestions in a new poll, and we can all vote for our favorite.

    As long as it's not called 'Alpha Bits'.

    But I rather like the name of the forums right now. Kinda nostalgic towards the first run of the series.

    I don't mind if the name is changed but I do like the way it is now.

    At this point I think I'm happy keeping it as it is. It's been Alpha Waves for almost 9 months now, and all the places that link to it have that name.
