my 2 cents: the moldy crow cantina.

Upon further consideration, I don't really like the Moldy Crow Cantina. As has been said before, Cantina has been overused as there's already one at JK.net. And besides, why would anyone, besides Kyle, name a cantina after his late ship?

So with that in mind, how about some of these alternatives:

Nar Shadda Hideout: a smokey hole in the wall, tucked safely at the end of a narrow, dimly lit alley on Nar Shadda. Here, smugglers and other unsavory characters often congregate, to discuss various aspects of their perilous careers, as part of the galaxy's seedy underworld, safe from the inquisitive ears of the authorities.

The Holonet: a technological marvel, connecting disparate beings and allegiances from across the galaxy in a virtual community, enabling unprecedented expression of ideas and communication.

The Holonet. I think that is the best one we've had so far. My vote goes for that. It's not humorous, but I think it's a good one.

Poor Vader, doesn't get his Asthma Clinic.

In which case, I vote for The Holonet it's clever.

May the best name win...

Aristotle,

You may take my forum name, but you shall not take my FREEDOM!!! Its a consipiracy, it would have won hands down.

So I presume that means I shall have to vote for another more politically correct name then doesn't it?

ok, i give up. But I don't see how "Wookie Woodstock" is any better than mine, and its not even funny. Just rolls off the tongue cos of the alliteration.

My new vote goes to "Yoda's Swamp."

sort of. assonance is where you make two different words half rhyme, like swan and stone.

alliteration is like the Slippery Snake Slid on the Ice. Repeating the same sound S's and C's.

That kind of thing, anyway this detracts from the point.

Its also true that cantina is overused

The Holonet is a Star Wars term, not a copyrighted word that theforce.net has rights to. I'm not sure if you were implying that, but in any event I believe the Holonet can be used by us and them, that is if enough people like it. They certainly can't sue us over it.

I think all the names are clever and its nice to see everyone is expressing there imaginations: My suggestions, although it may be wierd:
" Vadors Hard-Drive "

Gives you the idea that raw data, or ideas can be posted and makes you wonder what types of data Vador stored in that suite of his.....lol....I'm ready for all the laughs on this one, but I stand by my vote!

I didnt mean that at all Vag, I meant that just as the cantina is used at jk.net, holonet is used there, the first thing that came to my mind when I read it was theforce.net, thats why I said it should be something original, like MEWH

That's what I figured, digl. I still wouldn't mind us using it too, though.

Hmmm, I'm looking over at theforce.net right now, and I don't see the word "Holonet" at their forums. In fact, they seem to just call them the "Jedi Council Discussion Forums". Maybe they used "Holonet" in the past, but they don't appear to anymore. That would make it "ok" for us

I think they use holonet for the news...not the forums. But I'd rather have something original. We don't want any trouble from theforce.net. They've got more members.

[edit]

ok...I'm redirected back and it's now the swamp. I like it...but how about Yoda's Swamp, or Dagobah Swamp. I mean, I've got a swamp within 5 miles of my house and I go by it frequently, but I've never see a Jedi there.

Awww, come on, "The Swamp" ??? what kind of name is that. At least do something with a ring to it. "Moldy Crow Cantina" was nice. How 'bout "The Valley of the Jedi" think about it: "The Valley of the Jedi": Give the lightsaber a rest, let the Force recharge, and discuss just about any topic of interest with fellow Jedi in "The Valley of the Jedi"...(JKII and non JKII topics allowed.)

See, that name implies a sorta large type area to discuss anything and is a name straight from the Jedi Knight series, which makes this site look very, very, very, proffesional.

So, anyway, just another idea. Any votes are welcome and any token insults are expected

He just changed the name for the hell of it. It isn't final or anything.

About TF.N's Holonet. Their Holonet is the name for Miscellaneous news section. Not a forum name. Although I can see where you're coming from digl, I don't have a problem with this forum being named the Holonet being "unoriginal". I for one am fine with it.

And the people that run TF.N aren't scum bags. They wouldn't be pissed, and they wouldn't even notice anyhow. Furthermore, Lucasgames has a good relationship with TF.N. TF.N used to give JK.net news to post on the JK.net's main page, and JK.net supplied TF.N with gaming news. If TF.N did see the Holonet name, and for some strange reason they wanted us to change it, there probably wouldn't be any hard feelings. Again, this situation is pretty doubtful.

Anyone of you still got the Episode II teaser trailer ? PLEASE e-mail it to me. I'm stuck here now with a restricted (but still functioning) limited internet access. I can't download anything. My adress( actually my mother's(I'm temporarily using it, silly!)) is witch.2@memo.absa.co.za and make it the heading "From Theforce.net". If you don't have it, download it for free at :

The force.net homepage

Please , after you have downloaded it will you PLEASE e-mail it to me ?

I think we should forget any names to do with jedi for this forum, this is supposed to be non JK related stuff and it would make things easier if it were called something like Yoda's Swamp.

Aristotle, why don't you try my name out for size? Just for a day... go on,

How 'bout "The Smugglers Cantina" ? That'll satisfy wardz for something being non-JK2 related and a group of persons who aren't Jedi Knights.

I agree with the sentiment that it needs to be a name that doesn't give the impression that the forum is for discussion of Jedi-related topics. We've already had a bit of confusion on this matter in the past, so it would be wise of us to not further the confusion.

It sounds like some people are interested in the Holonet, and there is some interest in the Smuggler's Den, and the Moldy Crow Cantina as well.

I don't like Yoda's swamp because, well, he's a Jedi Master, and that makes me think that the forum may be for discussion JKII topics as well.

I, personally, like Nar Shadda Hideout better than the Smuggler's Den, because the den is more specific to smugglers, while a hideout could be for anyone to hide, and discuss non-JKII topics.

As guidelines for naming this forum, I would urge people to come up with a name that:

1. Doesn't have anything to do with a Jedi.
2. Itsn't silly or absurd.
3. Has a nice caché to it.
4. Is Star Wars related.

Another name. "Coruscant Central". Or "The Bounty Hunter's Net". Even "Cloud City" could do, eh ?

How about "obi-wankenobis net"? geddit?

Nah, dont worry, that one isn't serious

I quite like "Watto's Workshop", but perhaps that could be used for the editing forum or something.

To be honest, I think we have had the best ideas and they are going to be the
"cantina-ish", "hideout" sort of things. Mainly because they provide a contrast to the main JK2 theme going on in the other forum..

I for one am not too thrilled by seeing run of the mill Star Wars people or locations with Cantina or something of the sort slapped on the end.

It ends up sounding so generic and impersonal. When you visit San Fransico, do you get all excited when you see San Fransico Club, or in New York when you are about to enter the New York Cantina?

Even Mos Epsa Watering Hole wasn't that good. They liked the Watering Hole part which was suggested by me in Watto's Watering Hole and added the generic name of the city of Mos Espa. Keeping the Watto would have been equally lame, so I am guilty of this uncreative process as well.

I vote for a name that instead of combining generic Star Wars thing A with various generic names for meeting places B, describes something relevant to the game we play.

Don't remember who suggested it, but The Saber's Rest is in the same vein that these conditi0ns dictate. We stop playing our multiplayer slash em up and we give our sabers a rest and come chat about other things. Another example of this, though not one that would be approriate for this forum would be the DownTime, which was a Tap Cafe in the X-Wing series where pilots gathered to hang out and have a few drinks during what is appropriately called their Down Time when they were not flying or preparing for missions.

Yes, I agree with the majority, a name that is not directly asociated with "Jedi" is the best bet. I like Smugglers Den also. How about a name that off-sets the Jedi name, and keeps a similar feel as the Jedi Temple with a differnt pupose like, The Padawan Palace, or the Apprentice Club House...lol...just some random thoughts, but you get the idea.

Even if they did post here about JKII, what is the big deal? It says that JKII and non JKII topics are allowed. Besides, everyone in the Jedi Temple is always griping about how too many people re-post in there, so this place certainly wouldn't hurt from extra people.
Once again, I vote we keep The Valley of the Jedi. But, if not for this board, how 'bout we use the Valley of the Jedi to re-name the Jedi Temple. Doesn't that have a better ring than Jedi Temple.

In the movie, we see the Jedi Temple as a very large, quiet place meant for serious contemplation. On the other hand, we all saw The Valley of the Jedi as a place of tense battle. Thousands of Jedi fought and died there only to have their spirits trapped within. It was a place of great reckoning, where the fate of the Universe hinged on one last battle between Dark and Light.

A bit more exciting than Jedi Temple huh?

So, all in favor of The Valley of the Jedi replacing the Jedi Temple, speak up.

And for the record, I will humbly withdraw my vote for The Valley of the Jedi for this forum.

Thank you

Here's my two credits:

The jedi temple is an episode I thing. Not suitable in the classic era. The Valley of the Jedi is not a good idea either, seeing as that, for the most part, we are all friendly here.
