the font color is fine. it has a nice contrast with the background and I think we're all in agreement that we'll just tweak the colors not the background.

i dunno i think it'd be cool if the default font colour was yellow

Soul, did you forget that people can just change the colour of their text themselves?

Cut it down to 5 choices every month and give it a try.

5 names a month?

That would seem a lot. Especially that it takes at least 1 or 2 days to get the vote going and establish a winner. I was thinking more like 2 names a month, so that a name can stay there for 2 weeks so some less active people can actually see it and vets can get a feel of it.
I guess we could start with 5 names a month, but I'd imagine that being trimmed down later. Keep in mind that doing the voting and choosing does take a bit of work and effort, and with it being too common everybody will start getting tired of it quickly. Both making/running these votes as well as participating in them.

He may have meant having five choices to vote from for every month, with the most votes deciding a monthly name.
Listen.

I'm pretty sure that's what he meant, haha
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

Not to be mean, but all the suggestions are really gay. They suck.

SNAFU's Basement is okay.

Renaming the forum constantly is a stupid idea.

If we want to foster a bigger, more special community, we ought to have a name which makes us sound like we fit a niche; something more unique than just "Off-Topic" or "Everything Else" which just presents us as a random assortment of topics. It can't sound so different as to be pretentious, though.

"The True SNAFU"
"The FUBAR Forum"

I like that second one a lot.

I also propose that the "Mod Squad" be re-named something less cliche and more SNAFU-y, like "Team SNAFU".
