    I've never really liked the name "Adventures Beyond Reality". I got permission from Fazle to rename it, so we need to choose one.

    I'll take suggestions in this thread for a week or so, and all the best ones will go in a poll next week (A.B.R. will be an option, so if you like the name as it is, you'll get to vote to keep it).

    So let's have some good names for the Science Fiction, Horror, and Fantasy subforum.

    I'm not really sure why this is under the Technology header, as it seems to be much more focused on books and the like. In that regard, maybe move it to entertainment, and change the name to The Library, or something.

    Of course, that doesn't take into account the movie threads, etc in here. Hm.


    I'd say still move it to Entertainment, if possible, and.... Well, fuck, no names coming to me now. I'll try to think of some.

    Good suggestions!

    So far, I think "Thunderdome" and "The Outer Limits" are the best. :o

    I think we should put up a poll.

    Yeah, I suppose. I'll do it in the morning.

    Although I was very tempted to just skip the poll and e-mail Fazle with The Outer Limits as the new name. :mamoru:

    I think that's the perfect choice. It's not too "nerdy" and it fits in well with the naming scheme of the other subforums (the idiot box, the cage, etc).

    So I'm strongly encouraging you all to vote for it when I do the poll. :wavey:

    We could also go with a purely descriptive forum name: "Horror, Science Fiction, and Fantasy" to go along with A&M, C&P, FS, etc. :o
