Voting for a new name meta discussion

I’ve pinned the topic so that it stays prominent.


#44

yes Jan got the greenlight to take over the MyG franchise


#45

Confirming that I got permission to continue using the MyGaming name. So, as per @DieGrootHammer’s poll the options are:

  1. Keep MyGaming as-is (with a few tweaks to decouple it from MyBroadband).

  2. Change the name of this forum (MEW) to MyGaming.

  3. Change everything: name and forum software.

Once that is decided, there are a few other nitty-gritties to handle:

  • If we use the new forum software, we should still try and preserve the posts currently on MyGaming.
  • We can either import them here (I’m thinking a special archive category, with all the old posts locked);
  • Or I can preserve the old forum posts in a static site, which will then link to the new forum.

This is to try and avoid a massive drop in traffic in addition to a loss of history.

I’ve got a few other ideas kicking around so we don’t lose the brand MyGaming has built up in the South African market over the last nine years, but still get to use a new name. Once I’ve had a chance to think through it a little more carefully I’ll bring it up for discussion.
