Can we be a little more original in names?

For forums, of course. Off-Topic Discussion and General Discussion seems pretty generic, doesn't it?

Remember all the competitions to name the Off-Topic board and general board for JO? We could do something similar to that, here. But maybe we should make the names something closer akin to Kotor's timeline rather than using common SW terms.

Maybe something like the Wroshyr Junction for the OT board. Obviously that isn't too good being off the top of my head, but the rest of you can come up with some pretty good stuff, right?

Yes there has been some talk about it.......I personally am waiting for more info to be released about the game....names of places etc.

So far, I know of one name I want to have for the off-topic forum. Dreshdae Cantina........Dreshdae is a city on Korriban.

Of course I think there will be some kind of vote for it.

That would work. We get a lot of suggestions, have The Raven, , pick out his favorites and then he makes a Poll.

I suppose we will have to wait for a bit more information if we keep it game specific.

I say name them after Locales in the game or something appropriate. I don't even know if the Raven wants to change them. I guess its up to him finally. I indifferent either way.

Off topic should be a place where people come together or maybe the Ethans Hawk or something???

Looks like "The Raven" name is begining to stick.

You guys are right, the names should be more creative.

I still want Dreshdae Canitina for the off-topic forum and I'm still waiting to hear something else that is worthy!

For the gen forum how about something that would tie in the name of the game or something......like Republic Guard discussion or something....I'm just throwing out ideas to get ppl thinking...please give us your thoughts!

I've done some more thinking on this.....how about:

Korriban waste lands for off-topic.....I don't know why but I just think of the off-topic as evil or something....*shrugs*

Holowen Labs is fine by me for the dev...


[EDIT-Old Republic Guard sounds good also....IMO]

Republic Guard for general and Holowan Laboratories for the Dev. Arena both sound good...

I agree that something 'wastelandy' would suit Off-Topic... I dunno enough about the locales of KotOR [yet] to make any constructive suggestions, though, and I'm too tired to go looking for ideas now

I'll edit some in if I can think of any... ^_^

Something 'wastelandy' would be alittle to close to "the Swamp" over at the jkii forums. For the forum names, does it have to be an offical star wars place or can it be made up/more creative?

Good point about the wastelands........now that I think about it.

We would like to have the names be related to the game if we could......but we are open to suggestions. Thanks for your help AB.

Alright I have a few names listed, you may use them for any forum which feels most apropriate.

- Korriban Canyon

- Manaan Resort

- Wookiee('s) Treehouse/Hangout

- Horuset Space Center

- Yavin(4) (Training) Campus

Also, less worldly, more conventional names could be used like:

- The Pub/Cantina

- The Arena/Battlegrounds

Tell me what you think, the first two in my opinion flow best.

Wookies Hut (Probably reminds me too much of Yoda's Swamp however. ie Yoda's Hut)

Ahto City

Ahto Spaceport

Dantooine's Jedi Academy

Sith Fortress

Jedi's Mark

Korriban's Elite

Old Republic Senate

Jedi's Hideout

Sith's Hideout

Bastilla's Hideout

Jolee's Hideout

Revan's Legacy

The Raven's house

Lightsaber's Edge

That's all I can think of for now going by information I know about the game.

Anyone feel free to make any variations you like. I couldn't care less, as long as we get some good names.

Pronounce Rwookrrorro - You know you can't.

Rwookrrorro Village - The only place to watch Wookies breed!

Pyrshak Pyros - Burn baby, burn.

Bastila's Training Grounds - Only place to learn Battle Meditation!

Bindo's Smuggling Run - Can you make it in 12 parsecs?


Disclaimer : Some of these suggestions might not be entirely serious.

Yay! I'm glad to see that this topic is getting some ideas. Though I suspect that maybe the staff had it at the back of their minds anyway.

I like Holowen Labs for the Dev forum. I'd like something similar to a Wookie thing up in the trees. But I can't think of the correct word. I could probably draw it.

... ... time passes ... ...

Scratch that idea! lol, here's one. -- Wookie's Bungalo -- For the OT board. Bungalo isn't quite the word that I was looking for, but maybe it will get someone else going.

Republic Guard doesn't ring too well in my ears for the General board. I like the newsfeed idea though. Holonet was the first thing that popped into my mind, but would they have had that techonology then? It's still pretty much at a premium to get Holonet services, even in NJO times. 'Course that doesn't mean much considering how slowly the SW Timeline moves.

I like the name to, however, I wasn't expecting them so soon.

I especially like the Dantooine Theater Company for the Roleplaying one. Lol @ that.
