New Forum Name Contest / Vote

Okay... It's about time we gave this forum a new name... Theed Hangar was meant to be temporary. So... Lets get the names flowing and then we'll decide as a community. Now how's that for democracy on a web site?

Seriously though... you guys should have a say in this.. so please list your suggestions for a new name. Of those I've seen listed so far.. I kind of like the sound of "Moldy Crow Cantina" and "Yoda's Swamp" ... but lets see what else people come up with.. then we'll vote.

Winner even gets an email @jediknightii.net to make it worth your while to think about a good name.

Good luck to everyone who participates.

Bobba Fetts Bar or Mara's Meeting Place. There is a not so original one which would be The Smugglers Den.

Well, seeing as we talk about anything and everything STAR WARS in here, and we are loads of people from all over the globe, the Cantina one seems to sum it up pretty nice. Or we could be traditional and call it something predicable but fancy like 'The Galactic Senate. But i vote Cantina.

So we have had a few votes for "Vaders Asthma Clinic." Good work DIGL.

If some aren't used for the theed hangar, will they be used for the others ones?, eg editing, clans... cos something like "Watto's Workshop" would be great for editing...

I like:

-The Wretched Hive (of scum and villainy)
-The Smuggler's Bizarre
-The Moldy Crow Cantina
-The Plumber's Hangout
-The Bespin Casino

...although I don't quite understand why Kyle's ill-fated ship would be converted into a drinking establishment.

I reckon smugglers Den. Vaders Asthma Clinic is good, but maybe too comical and not serious enough.

The Council Chambers.

It makes sense cause the council chambers are a part of the Jedi Temple.

Yeah, Vader's Asthma Clinic is v.good, but i don't know if it is a good idea for the forum thingy to be called that. maybe the cantina ones, or the council ones would be better, or at least more suited to the general feel of the forums

A forum by any other name...

Well I guess anything that doesn't have "cantina" in it (it's good, but overused) is fine by me.

We could call it "The Carbon Freeze" you know, like the Tastee Freeze (Ice cream) joint. Nah.....

Just don't call it "Jar Jar's Alphabet Galaxy," heh.

Galactic Plumberman Memorial? Okay, I'll stop now. ; )

I like all this stuff about the Jedi, but it is Too close to the Jedi Temple name of the other room thingy. I think this should be just the normal population of the galzy without the mysterious powers of the jedi, so it should be The Galactic Senate or something like that. just the voice of the normal people.

Thankyou Aragorn, I'll think you'll find people that this name is more popular than people are giving it credit for...

Vote "Vaders Asthma Clinic" for a more interesting forum!

I love Vader's Asthma Clinic, it's very original, and comical.

But there are people out there who would want a more sophisticated name. I guess I'm suggesting that Vader's Asthma Clinic is put in the poll at least, let the people decide!

Letalis, That is a very good point, I am beginning to like the aussies! (until the ashes start, but lets not go there.) If it can be put on the poll and then people can decide what they want.

To be slightly more serious, The Theed Hangar "notion" is where you can talk about anything and that is meant to be reflected in the name I have proposed. If you want serious discussion you have the main room.

My name may crash and burn and some people may find it a little silly, but that is the point! The Theed hangar is meant to be fun!

Cheers,

wardz

I'm pretty sure the moderators are gonna pick the best 6 or something, then we'd vote on the main page. I think that makes sense.

That would have probably won the poll, but If its not in the run I go for The Moldy Crow Cantina, Yodas Swamp or Wookie Woodstock (but I guess that wouldnt be considered either)
