Five wrote:I really like your last two site name ideas, Spike!

Maybe we should just go with warforarcadia.de for now until we have moved everything and can redirect warforarcadia.com to the new site? However, some believe that we should use this opportunity to find a fresher name.

The other ideas we had so far:

protecting-with-pri.de
arcp.protecting-with-pri.de
last-barrica.de
thebarrica.de
die-phalanx.de / thephalanx.de
biophalanx.de
phalanxnet.de
alphaphalanx.de
comic-battles.de / comic-battle.de
comic-battles.com
hollow-city.com
thesprawl.de
cloneproject.de
artofarcadia.de

Some more form Tin just now:

ArcadianAlliance.de
ArcadianBriga.de



Also, for your info, I have sent a few mails to Naeru last week but got no reply so far, so I sent a message to Toji today who owns the webspace the old forum is on. Maybe he can help us if Naeru is too busy.


I believe ArtofArcadia.de is the most fitting to what we do here. It's simple and easy to remember. It doesn't stray far from our identity.

Or simply WarforArcadia.de would also be best.

Art of Arcadia is basically the Title of the artbook. Also, ART is a rather empty word to me, so I am not a big fan of that name.

Five suggested alphaphalanx today, I think phalanx alpha/phalanx-alpha.de has a better ring, but I am not sure about this direction. I do think we should not keep the site as "War for arcadia", as it causes confusion about prior chapters (WFA chapter 4?) and makes folder naming on the server also a bitch (old-wfa / old-wfa wiki / new wfa / new wfa wiki) and I'd rather we take something new, short and not too descriptive (Comics-of-fights.com, People-fighting-government.com etc.).

If we change the name of the site, I will get a .de and probably a .com/org domain for the new name, and with Cel's help, will redirect warforarcadia.com to the new server as an alternative domain. If most of you want to keep the old name, fine, but I think it's easier to make a step towards a new system and setting with a new name, and it makes it less confusing for new members (if there ever are any again).

I just feel that throwing away any and all name recognition we have built up as WFA- what little there may be- would be an error. We have 5 years of reputation built up for the world. To toss that aside for a totally new universe and site seems wasteful. That is my concern. Maintaining some sort of bond in name or in style is important, even if there are so few of us. The book is our feat, the old site will probably remain dormant for some time. But it is a testament to tons of work and years of history.

Gonna have to agree on this one too. If we were gonna run in that direction, then comic-battles.de/com is my prefence in that regard.

I also agree with this too.

But why keep hanging on to something that was so clearly dying. Even if we adopted the same name, the site itself would never be the same as the original. It'd be better. WFA was in dire need of improvements in the area of accessibility and how it functioned, as well as the universe was getting almost way too big for its own good. We had two entire continents to fight against eachother with a memberbase of about 8 people, on a good day. I am also going to be really honest here, but I found that the entire setting was getting to be really boring because of this. As for rep...War For Arcadia has a very tiny reputation outside of those of us who are still around...so I consider that a non-issue in my eyes. I guess I see it differently because I was never around from the start like you were.

As for the world/universe itself, it's still being set in the WFA universe but can be easily disregarded if people choose to do so. Five explained it a few posts back what the idea was.

Although, I'm not going to hide the fact that I like the idea of starting all the way from zero and building up something new and exciting, but to me what Five outlined was a fair enough compromise to me. Something that can be easily disregarded, but at the same time it's still set in the same universe so if you wanna keep developing that you can.

I don't think we'd need a contest for the NPCs, I'd rather leave it to people to just create NPCs in their comics and/or use the ones created by others in their comics. We'll try to figure this out.

To keep you guys up to date, we contacted Toji and he is trying to make backups for us of both the wiki and the forum. However, there seems to be a problem with making a backup of the forum because it is so large.
