okay fORGIVE THE SERIES OF THREADS/POLLS THAT MAY BE PUT UP as storm and i work on the potential site move because we...do want to take you guys' input into account as much as we can. if you haven't already posted in the other discussion thread with your thoughts on the site move itself, we'd appreciate that as well!!

but one major thing we're considering as we start to work on this iiiiis renaming the site. i know that's going to be a major change, i know that "AM" is so ingrained into everyone's mind bUT. lexi was the one who named the site, years and years ago. not only are we really trying to cut our ties with her and make the site very much our own, but there's also just the plain fact that the name 'afterhour mayhem' doesn't really make much sense in the context of the site today (and, as eps eloquently pointed out, sounds more like a porn site lmao).

so we'd appreciate anyone pitching suggestions or thoughts for the new name! if there are a few that everyone really likes, we'll put up a poll for the final decision or something.

i tried to brainstorm a few myself aaaand came up with 'exodus' - short, sweet, and very relevant to the overall plot of everyone being moved from their respective worlds into this one. there's also 'tabula rasa', meaning "blank slate" and characters having one of those, a fresh start, is also a common theme of the site. the downside of that one is that it's a common-ish site name, i guess - though i'm not sure if there's a currently active board with that name.

AND THATS ALL I RLY HAVE SO EVERYONE ELSE CAN HAVE AT IT.

((oh i forgot actually we should just call the site 'addison montgomery' and thus we'd be able to keep 'am' as an abbreviation while associating with sheer perfection))

Alright, I think this is a great idea, personally! 'Afterhour Mayhem' has never actually been a good site name, and since the site had changed so much in literally every way... well, it's time for a fresh new name. One that doesn't sound like a cheap porno.

... Anyway! Name ideas! Both of the names you've got seem good to me, but I might as well add a suggestion or two.

The name Denouement appeals to me because it's a word I like, and it generally applies. Things have come to an end for the people brought in, but they've got a new start. IDK I LIKE THE NAME AND WORD. Also, maybe something like Paradigm Shift, which is a generally cool name and means 'a fundamental change in approach or underlying assumptions', which could tie into... a lot of what's happened on-site already.

um I'm sorry we're only accepting votes for addison montgomery as a site name

nO BUT I do admit that while I like the idea of paradigm shift and tabula rasa as names, they're unfortunately pretty popular concepts and I've seen them both in use before

so I'm leaning towards denouement and exodus (with of course the caveat that all characters must clearly become white people once we rename it)

no but seriously I think both are short and snappy and easy to remember, both with cool connotations that could work well with the concept! I'm vaguely leaning more towards the former tho

Personally, I don't really like Exodus and Denouement, because I think they sound marginally pretentious. Similarly, with exodus, it has an 'exile' feel to it, like we've been exiled from this site rather than making a new one, the characters are exiled from their place back home rather than having a new home-- of the two I prefer Denouement but even then I don't really care for the name personally speaking. I also don't think either particularly capture the mood of the site like Afterhour Mayhem used to.

So to that end, I'm going to devise a length of equally pretentious and far more ludicrous sounding names that may be more appealing.
  • Stranger Horizon -- This one has two meanings. Stranger, as both the fact everyone inducted into the board is a 'stranger', and of course, an odd horizon, or future. I think this is my favorite of my suggested names, or at least one of the better ones. I think it captures the mood of this being us moving on to a new place without sounding hopeless or like it's in exile while still capturing the mood of the site.
  • Paradiso del Matto -- WHOA look at this pretentious name. It means Paradise of the Fools in Italian, and was thought up keeping the Fool tarot card in mind, the fool being the card of journeys, beginnings, and zero--- a new 'start', so to speak, both for the characters who will be living in a place meant for them, and for us.
  • Fool's Gold -- Same as above, less italian, more wacky old prospector-y
  • Dead Drop -- Referring to the 'rifts' dropping people off. Less significant to us, but simple with a decent ring to it. Dead Drop is also when someone wordlessly and secretly deposits something for you, hinting at greater mystery behind the rifts or rift like elements we choose to adopt.
  • No Man's Yesterday -- Thiiis is a bit of a stretch, a combination of no man's land and yesterday. I like the term 'no man's land', but I think it's too depressing maybe for what we're after. No Man's Yesterday sort of refers to yesterday being a no man's land-- so what does tomorrow hold? Thats the kind of pretentious question I want to ask with this name.
  • Black Sheep -- Simply put, folks dropped into a pan fandom are outcasts in a way, refugees-- they don't belong here. So Black Sheep, or some better variation on the term black sheep if someone can think of one, sounds like an appropriate name. Only 90's kids remember.
  • Vertigo Shift -- Being dropped through a rift is disorientating and shifts ones life potentially entirely upsidedown-- thus, this name is appropriate to the characters situation. If you wanted to apply it to us in the Real World ™ then the discovery of several dreck individuals including our head admin shifting our perception of people could play into that. But then thats kind of stretching it. REALLY, It just sounds cool
  • All Good Things -- Must come to an end-- and let's face it folks, we're all getting older. This could possibly be the last rp board we're ever all on together-- maybe not, but it's a somewhat frightening possibility. This one is more of a note to AM though, which we'd be leaving behind-- but hopefully for something cooler, something nicer, something more special.
  • Vagrant Combine -- Us frauks gotta stick tougethar Elsa Maours
IF I THINK OF MORE NEW EXCITING NAMES I WILL LIST THEM HERE BUT THIS IS JUST A BRIEF WORKING LIST I THOUGHT OF TELL ME YOUR OPINIONS LETS WORK OUT A COOL NEW SITE FOR A COOL NEW FUTURE

okay I am here tooooo suggest a name of my own! wow what a surprise

nah but while not meaning to steal from dna's first suggestion, but I was reading about black holes and relativity aaand I was thinking that event horizon is a p fitting name - an event horizon in relativity is a boundary in spacetime beyond which events cannot affect an outside observer

in more normal words, it's a point of no return from which there's no escape and which doesn't affect anything outside, whiiich the rifts remind me of

bUT since it's a cool term it's also likely present on another site or two so there's that to detract from it
