Should we keep "The Administorum" as our name or is it time for a change?

Yes. Keep the name. I like it.
No. That name is old and lame. I have a better one.

Should we keep the name or get a new one?
« on: February 27, 2010, 11:16:14 AM »
So this is pretty self explanatory. The Administorum: Time-honored name that should be preserved, or old tired link to an old tired forum that should be dropped? let me know. If you vote No, please post your suggestion for a new name in this thread so that we can start deciding which one we like best.

You forgot the option for "no Opinion" =P.   I see things both ways.  New is always good. but when you've been a part of something for so long, it kinda grows on you.

Still have no idea what the meaning behind the name Administorum is, except for maybe how many mods/admins we've burned through like a pack of cigarettes, but it's a name I've grown fond of and directly related to the Board battles.

I left out the option of "No opinion" cause when I give that option, everyone picks it and nothing gets done. Pick one.

I personally think that calling it 'The Multiverse' would make a bit more sense - I don't really see why it's called 'The Administorum'.  But I'm not really bothered if it stays the way it is either, there is something to be said for precedent and nostalgia.

The problem with using 'the multiverse' is that it'll just blend right in with all the other forum RPGs as opposed to standing out.  If we're going to change the name, it needs to have something to make it stand out.  Just do a google search for multiverse forum roleplay.  There's a huge list.

Even though the Administorum is a name that sticks because of nostalgia purposes, it's a name that stands out amongst the rest.

If we were to change it, it had best stand out.

My main issue with The Multiverse as a name is that it directly relates to the main board battle. And that's something I'm going to be trying really hard to get away from. The main BB has been successful, but I've always promoted the Administorum in the past as a place where we can have MULTIPLE battles, not just one. And with a few exceptions, we've never really had that. Any other battle that others have tried to run has either never quite gotten off the ground or sputtered out after a while. I want to encourage any new users that we get to think outside of the main bb and possibly get some other battles going, cause it would really help us survive those occasional lulls where nothing's going on in the main story. Naming the boards "The Multiverse" kinda pigeon-holes us into that one arc, and I don't want to do that.

But hey, Soul actually posted a SUGGESTION. Holy crap. Maybe some more would be nice.  :P

I always assumed the name of the boards was equated with WH40k lore - something linked with the ongoings and whatnot on Holy Terra. Or maybe not. Either way, i just rolled with it. It's different, non-generic. If said in any other way, the name is unique. Isn't that what we're all about?

"Kelvacks Slam n'Spank" sounds nice.  :D

Administorum is cool. I believe Archivum is also unused for the most part and is also appropriate High Gothic.

Yea I'm cool with the name :D I've always associated it with Soul Reaver and his TTBE maps and brings back good memories
