 The Great Forum Renaming of 2016, Everyone into the pool!

Hey, everybody!

Periodically over the years-ish, the idea of renaming the forum comes up in earnest - especially because there's a noted news site out there called Comic Book Revolution already. Most recently, in the Jean Grey solo comic thread, there was a call for potentially calling the forum "Figurative Comic Reading Penises".

Now, this is extremely informal - the mods haven't discussed any kind of terms, rules, process or whathaveyou for changing the forum name (except for the prize - outlined below). But, we think this discussion has merit and could use its own thread for some focus, refinement, and - perhaps - action.

Post your forum name ideas, discuss, iterate, and so forth. We'll add the forum name suggestions to the list being kept in this, the thread OP. The sooner we take care of this, the better. When we have a bunch of good ideas people are generally warm on, we'll see what's what and go from there - which brings us to the prize!

Prize: If we pick your suggestion, you get to ban whomever you want for 48 hours! (This 48 hours can be broken up into increments of 12 hours, so hypothetically you could ban four different posters for 12 hours.) http://i.imgur.com/aX0cxFr.gif

After all, we're sure opening the forum's name to the community at large and giving away such a prize won't go wrong in even the slightest way. At all. http://i.imgur.com/nWzjfKS.gif

Really though: What are some good names for our charming, scrappy underdog comic-centric forum?

Note 1: It doesn't need "comic" in some permutation in the title, but it's just a solid direction, given it's a comic book forum. Likewise, language from the comic book reader/collector lexicon, like - !@#$ if I know - "long box", "pull list", uh, "retcon", etc. could also be potentially strong key words.

Note 2: "xcrescence" is in the forum URL, which we're keeping for simplicity.

We can call it Comic Book Resource now that the former Comic Book Resources has been renamed CBR.

I love this idea, but it seems like they still kind of use it?

I think you're in the right ballpark but maybe change "Pouring" to "Oozing."
