    I haven't thought of a prize as yet but lets have a contest over the course of the next few weeks or whatever and see who all can come up with a nice little name for the site :)

    We have previously been Xp-erience.org and NTFS.org and are currently OSNN.net.

    Toss out some suggestions and please, nothing too long or ridiculous and no spam. This thread will be regulated.

    I will see what I can toss out as a prize, there are a coupla things I have in mind but I might have to buy something or maybe EP can send a poster of himself doing the running man :smoker:

    Post format should be something like this:

    Code:
    Poster name: Sazar
    Name Suggestion: OSNN
    Meaning: Operating System News Network
    and whatever else you want to add :)

    Not to be a pain, but why change?

    Operating System News Network (OSNN) sums it up nicely, and isn't specific to a general OS/Technology family.

    right about the time we get this many constituents we have a problem that results in having to resolve a new name, and thus equalize our membership to the ranks of other tech sites

    we're in preparation for that inevitable event

    I like OSNN as a name as well, it fits a new operating system as well

    Having a lot of options out there and then picking the one that seems most meritorious, or not, is not a bad thing IMO :)

    Please keep posts on topic. Once we have some valid suggestions, I am going to go back and purge the OT posts.

    Guys, please ask questions in a separate thread, only post your suggestions or ideas here. I don't know exactly whats going on, it seemed like a good idea at the time. Don't make me regret it :dead:
