If you could rename Keenspace, what would you rename it as?

For discussions, announcements, non-technical questions and anything else comics-related or otherwise that doesn't fit in any of the other categories.

Remember, we're being asked for a list, not one vote.

So, in the spirit of brainstorming:

Asylum
NotSpace
Geocities*
Noodle-something
Wild American Nuns Gyrating (WANG)
Pickle-something or something-pickle


*not really a vote

We'll just list it multiple times, then ;)

*kidding* But if it appeals to a lot of people, I guess the probabilty of it appealing to the Fab4 is higher.

All that said, be careful, guys, and don't get too attached to a name that might not be chosen, or implemented if the idea doesn't work out.

More names!

I had no idea Inkspace would be that popular. :oops:

Are we looking for a new NAME or a new NAME and DOMAIN? Would we be able to keep Keenspace.com if we have an entirely different name for it? Or would the big guys want a domain to go with our new name? Many excellent domains are taken.

I would think the name would be enough, perhaps with inkspace.keenspot.com and inkspace.keenspace.com pointing to the keenspace.com homepage. But that's just me.

I was about to suggest K-space.
But then i thought it's better to leave it or K-Dawg would claim ownership of all our comics!

Inkspace


Very cool. Really like that one.

And I really hope all they change is the name of the site, not the domain. Otherwise...that's a LOT of rebuilding the rest of us have to do. Drop-downs, listings in places like Onlincomics and Buzzcomix, links we send to friends.

And if we absolutely want to keep the K in there somewhere, why not have it be the "KS-(insert new name here)", with the KS being Keenspot.

My name ideas:

Bedlam (because if you get involved in the forums, it is)
the Webcomic Melting Pot
Openspace
Studiospace

They're more likely to budge than the good folk at space.com, though.

My vote goes to Kinkspace.

Barring that, uh, Keepspace? Kilnspace? Coinspace? KMallet in honor of Kisai or Kelly?

Postby Cortland on Tue Sep 07, 2004 10:11 am

Inkspace and Openspace are GREAT names, but the dotcoms have been snatched already. :cry: We can't seriously consider a name unless we're ready to pry the parked name loose with whatever funds are necessary to buy it.

As an alternative, here's one name not taken: Comic Commons

Commons are (according to wikipedia.com):
Commons are any sets of resources that a community recognizes as being accessible to any member of that community. The nature of commons is different in different communities, but they often include cultural resources and natural resources. An example of a cultural resource is a place "where everybody knows your name" (as in the TV program, Cheers); Ref. the book The Great Good Place by Ray Oldenburg.
