new name

Postby nianfong on Tue Feb 10, 2009 8:58 pm

Hey all, sorry for the service interruption, but we're back.

And we need a new name. There are things going on in the background right now and for the protection of various parties involved, we have to stop using the emptyflower name at this time. The banner will be replaced soon with a nice one.

Please, I know many of you have an idea of what is going on, and who is responsible. Please don't take matters in your own hands, and PLEASE DON'T START SHIT with them. When there is a resolution I will let you all know.

In the meantime, let's brainstorm for a nice new name, that is humble and not pretentious, like emptyflower, but somehow related to CMA/IMA if you're an insider.
and of course, an available domain name. perhaps something from the classics.

Damn...I had a name about a bovine species from Tibet in state of pregnancy engaged in fellatio with a dragqueen IT sorcerer, while a bitchy twat homonimous to one of the three stooges waited in line to get sodomized...but that name won't stick.

I don't think we should post our suggestions publicly. B is probably watching and will just register any domain name we come up with and then trademark it. I suggest that people send their suggestions privately to Fong, that's what I would do anyway. As they say, if we don't learn from history, then we're doomed to seeing it repeat.

Yes, thank you guys. I am glad to see that the forum is still going. Hats off to you for keeping it alive. A name is just a name, but our community shall continue and thrive.

it's a labor of love man. definitely not a labor for profit. thanks for your support. if you want to send me your name ideas privately that'd be fine too.

Da Flowah is good.

What about WU MING (without name)- I was thinking of something along the lines of the site that can be named is not the true site ;)

But on a more fresh note..............errr...............deserves more thought
