    First, I'm exercising veto power in narrowing down the names in the poll.

    Second, here's what I'm looking for: We want to get more people participating in here. It was great for a while after the LOTR movies came out and everybody was into genre stuff for a while. The zombie thing is helping out a little bit, too. But I'm looking for a name that's not nerdy or fanboyish, not too esoteric, and will catch the eye of somebody looking over the forums list.

    Fair enough?

    So I'm looking over the other threads and compiling the list now. Poll to come.

    Potential names:

    default:
    Adventures Beyond Reality

    purely descriptive:
    Science Fiction, Horror, and Fantasy

    other:
    The Outer Limits (my personal favorite. I was tempted to just email Fazle and tell him that's the new name :o)
    Forum 9 from Outer Space
    Thunderdome
    The Mind's Eye
    Geekyshiat
    The Shire


    Last chance for any suggestions. Don't make them too obscure. They should reflect the forum topic, but still be accessible to outsiders.

    How about The Twilight Zone?

    I liked the suggestion of Ten-Forward best though (from the other thread).

    Redo the poll as a 24 hour one with just the two leaders since it's such a narrow difference?

    It is a pretty clever name, though. That one was yours, right?
