Name this forum!

Are you guys interested in trying to come up with a good name for this general discussion forum? General Discussion is kinda boring...it's nothing like the Swamp. I haven't really thought of any good ideas, but if you guys have, let them be known!

The Flooded AT-AT?


Vader's wife was very pregnant when she died 19 years ago. All of a sudden a 19 year old who is very strong in the force and has a distinct resembalance to him in his younger days rolls in from Vader's home planet with his old Master Obi-Wan (Who was the ONLY other person preset at the time his wife died. And to boot, the kid's last name is Skywalker.

So in answer to your question, he knew Luke was his son because his name is Darth Vader, and not Darth Retard.

How about the Pilots Lounge. Its catchy but not wacky. . It also kinda general because serious discussion wopuld be like the Cockpit, and this would be the Lounge. So the lounge isnt as serious and more non piloting stuff goes on in their.

How about:

The Trenches
The Front
The Battlefield
The War Room
The Ewok Village
The Droid Factory
The Wastelands
The Docking Bay
Jawa Camp
The Forest Guild
The Arena


These can be used for any of the forums in here
I hope some of them are approved

Oh, and btw, this new way of deciding things (asking members) is way cool, and adds to the fun of posting!

I personally like The Trenches

The Clone's Barracks
Land of the Deserters

(The last ones my favourite).

How about Swoosh picks his 5 personal favourites, and make a poll about it?
That would be fair

hmmm, General Discussion.... The Brig?

The thing is, would you be chatting on a battlefield? You would be fighting a war on a battlefield, not talking with your friends.

Thats kinda why i liked The Trenches...
You can kind of withdraw from the battle for a moment, to talk to ppl and chill out from all the stress and danger 'out there'

MMMPie> I dunno about that. The trenches were always on the front line of the battle, at least in WWI. I think that's the only major war that had trenches, but I'm probably wrong. Anyways, that's the front line, so tons of fighting goes on there

The trenches were also a dangerous place you neither had time to talk or mess around, since all it would have taken is one grenade thrown at you while you were talking/not paying attention and you'd be dead.

I don't think it should be given a name to do with fighting. Simply because this place is for off-game disscusion. You wouldn't laugh on The Battlefield would you?

(Ok, you might if you were fighting Ewoks, but...)

I think it should have either a comedy-style name or a non-frontline one.

That was the point I was trying to make.

In the movies, we see the rebels talking at the base, etc. We know that they can relax there, until they have to go out and fight.

I knew i had heat dex's diner before. And the Cantina sounded like it had already been used.

How about The Moisture Farm

We should have a name that people can be known by, you know. The swamp has swampies.

Here are a few I've come across...

The Outlander Club (ep2)
Naboo Lake Retreat (j/k)
Mos Espa Grand Arena
Echo Base
Geonosis Execution Arena
and finally, the Ewok Village

Something tells me Ewok Village will become many of your favorite

here's my two cents - wampa's cave (complete rip off of yoda's swamp), the locker room (the place where soldiers suit up?), or the soldiers' quarters.

I technically introduced him to thw whole concept in the Secret Vehicles thread...I didnt know he'd take it this far...

I like Ewok Village but it's a place they faught in in some Episode and the general discussion is a place to hang out.


Jawas Sandcrawler

since Jawas have those huge machines that obviously protect them or something i think it'd be a cool place to hang out.

I agree, Ewok Village sounds alot better, but maybe a better name then that, whats the place called that Wicket lived in?

High Trees of Endor?

EDIT--Bright Tree Village, that was it sounds good to me...
