BATTLE FOR THE FUTURE OF SPAM

This forum can be a scary place, 'cause we got lax rules: let's see your war face. Take a breath, and roll the dice, you might find out we're really nice.

The Lounge makes me think of Richard Cheese.
And BR shouldn't be a choice. You know why.

It has to have Spam in the name or it's not really Spam.

Honestly, why have a name other than spam for any meaningful length of time?

as another exercise of community.

I in fact am beginning to think we should hold a monthly contest of whatever variable we prefer to use (and the contest itself could keep changing), and then the winner of that contest gets to name spam for the next month.

Spam is spam.

Regardless of the name.

You shouldn't pretty it up, just present it as what is is.

In this way, we demonstrate the solidarity of the community in getting behind an individual while making a group effort to achieve something.

Of course, if we would all like to agree on THAT proposal, I'll be yoinking the very first title myself, as winning the contest of coming up with the idea FOR the contests.

oh, you're adorable, but this disparagement is actually merely factually accurate: you're exactly right, it will change every month, so it won't get old.

if you're prepared to argue that the exercise of the community to foster a decision will get old, then it's not much of a community, now, is it?

don't be THAT afraid of change, my good gold leader. :*

Then I would merely update the descriptors on the index page: indicating that the title rotates and that the forum is off-topic and has less stringent rules but is meaner so be careful.

Let's be imaginative, please.

if it's too hard to do monthly, we'd do it bi-monthly, tri-monthly (which is quarterly), or tetra-monthly (four months, if you all follow).

Let the title shift occasionally to reflect the nature of the forum itself. Quite neat, I think.

Surely you don't think we're not all completely uncreative that we couldn't regularly come up with neat ways to express the point of the forum topically?

Well, I can see BR constantly being a choice. But I'm sure that one won't be taken serious, no offence.
And some of you are really creative, so lets see where this goes like I already said.

expressing the first line of my last post in another way: if we can't handle 12 names a year, then perhaps 6, 4, or 3 names?

Spam is here not merely to be a bastion of familiarity and perpetuity, but also a place where we are allowed to throw a few explosives around and not worry about blowing people's arms off and them caring, see, and as long as the forum's DESCRIPTION remains in tact, explaining briefly why the name keeps changing, and what the behavior is, AND a rules thread FOR spam INSIDE spam, changing the name regularly sounds rather wonderful.

I just hit my pre-vicodin surge when I came up with that. *popeye laugh*

Hiryu you have my solemn word I will never myself choose to name the spam forum literally "BR" for any length of time, lol.
