PostSubject: Suggested Forum Name Change   Tue Aug 10, 2010 1:13 am

eXistance and I have discussed within the chat today that Transformcats is not a good forum name for a Transformice fan forum. If someone mentions it within a room in Transformice, there is a lot of negative feedback, such as, "Trasformcats? LOL WRONG GAME DUDE." eXistance thought of a different name for the forum that would potentially get us more members and a more active forum.

That name would be Transforumice.

We are now asking you, the members, what your opinion is on the matter. Do you like the new name? Would you rather keep Transformcats? Any and all views on the subject are welcome, including those that dislike both names. We would like positive feedback. Explanations as to why you think a certain way would be very helpful to the forum's future growth.

I still think Transformcats is a cool name. Mainly because also people would think we spelt our name wrong. Plus, it goes with your name!

Transformcats sounds better than transforumice where it sounds as if we made a typo. And i like the ring to it.

Well, aside from the horrendous pun, Transformcats is a good name not just for the forum, but also for the community.

Who picked neither? Do you, anonymous voter, have another idea for a forum name?

"Transforumice" sounds way too much like the name of the game itself. If I were speaking aloud, nobody would be able to tell the difference right away, and even if I typed it out, someone might misread it (or treat it like a typo). Plus, there would be no distinguishing abbreviation either; they'd both be TM.

Transformcats is not only a more unique name, but it also implies that we are a class of pros (cats > mice), or at least that's the way I've always seen it.

It's a tough choice, but I voted to Transforumice in the end. It sounds pretty cool and easy to think of. But that's just my opinion ^.^

'Transformcats', for these reasons:

I originally posted "I can't decide", but Could a mod change it to neither?

I have an idea.

Transforumcats!

Yeah, Transforumice just looks way too much like a typo. I'd rather stick with Transformcats.

I think that Transformcats is much more unique and distinctive as a name, and when people come to a link to the forum, and say, I'll go there later, we don't want them forgetting what the name is! I think that the site also has an identity as Transforcats, and we should preserve this heritage. Although, I think a very happy compromise is Transforumcats. Shaman Dance

I don't remember how long ago I voted here, but apparently I never gave reasoning...

I voted what we keep Transformcats. Here are my cons for the others, because I'm rather tired to think of pros right now.

Transforumice: Somewhat a bad pun, that way. Not only that, but the potential for it being assumed a typographical error is rather high. Also, as with all three I dodn't vote for: We've been TC for as long as the forum has been running. I think it has stuck pretty well.

Neither: I do believe that Transformcats works as a fine name. Therefore, I was disinclined to choose this option.

I can't decide: See 'Neither'.

Most of the votes point to transformcats and, since we are already here, there is no point in moving.

IF we changed the name, we wouldn't move. I can simply rename the forum to whatever I desire.

My other reason for choosing Transformcats is that in the world of Transformice, where LieK can mean like, Bloooonnn can mean balloon, and inorite means "I know right?" we do not want to hinge our forum's recognition as a forum on whether someone thinks we simply made up a cute extra vowel to Transformice, accidentally wrote a u, or actually have a forum named Transforumice. It's not a smart thing to do.
