Aw, shucks. Thanks. :D

I found your Hobbit post, BTW, and replied.

ATM, I'm working on a revised logo banner thingy.

If people are going to have fits about remember the balrog, where the stars are strange seems like a great alternative, but i still like remember the balrog better. It's not even the tolkien-ness of it that i like, it just sounds cool and not like every frigging other site out there..

What about making a poll?

I agree with CK. Maybe a another poll would be a good idea, now that we've all had time to think about it.

I came back to Remember the Balrog because it is unique - and it was an inside joke much loved about the old site. But you look around in here and people are talking about all different kinds of things. Call me blind, but I'm seeing more variety in topics and responses than I'd seen in quite a while, and I do think it's because it started up without a clear identity.

That's all I wanted to say.

Seconded (or really more of thirded?) about the poll.
And shireling, i do agree with you. The old board i was only sometimes posting on out of nostalgia. Here, even with 50 of us and no set direction, it's out of fun. :)

This is true, but if you go for the poll, I reckon it'd only be right if the decision was applied straight away. Let's not dither, is what I'm saying.

As for Remember the Balrog, it could be used as a subforum somewhere. It'd be a shame not to use it at all.

I'm about ready to just keep calling it Ringbearer :lol:

We can do another poll, but a lot of the ideas we have already come up with we can't use, so that really cuts down the poll options...

I've been mooching through the posts looking for inspiration (in desparation ;) ) and this quote made me think:

How about Beyond Reality? I've googled it and there's a radio station and an event company by that name, but I'm not seeing any forums like our's (though there is a beyond-realities site). Yes it's generic but considering that our topic discussion here is very broad, maybe we DO need something generic. We don't want something just Tolkien, or just fantasy or just sci-fi. Beyond Reality covers pretty much everything - writing, fantasy, sci-fi, bizarre food creations etc :D Thoughts?

At this point, anything that leads to consensus is the right choice. I say, set up a poll, and if everyone agrees, don't faff about, apply it.

Edit: that said, Beyond Reality sounds good to me.

I was just about to suggest "The Wood Between the Worlds." I know it's very Narnia, but for those who don't know Narnia it's still a pretty vivid image, and it sounds kinda poetic.

Beyond Reality is cool with me as well, though I'll still end up abbreviating it backwards to RB :p
"The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man. Nothing else that he builds ever lasts. Monuments fall, nations perish, civilizations grow old and die out, and after an era of darkness new races build others. But in the world of books are volumes that have seen this happen again and again and yet live on, still young, still as fresh as the day they were written, still telling men's hearts of the hearts of men centuries dead."

Beyond Reality is good - let's go with it!

Or, for those having trouble letting go; how about 'Reality Blur'?

I like it.

Naturally. I think the only reason you guys are debating it is that you don't really want to change the name at all because you don't want to lose the connection with the other site. I can't blame you for that. I'd feel that way, too if I were in your position. However, you do need to reach an agreement.

Shuggy wrote:Beyond Reality is good - let's go with it!


Hi Shuggy!

It is indeed good. I'd vote for it.

Shuggy wrote:Or, for those having trouble letting go; how about 'Reality Blur'?


Heh! It fits, doesn't it.

I like 'em both, but to be fair to everyone, if I take part in the voting, it'll be for the most popular choice to enable you to reach a consensus.

And if we use .org with it, it'll abbreviate to BRO :lol:
