Title: Should this forum get a new name ?
Post by: Level42 on July 26, 2010, 04:33:47 PM
Guys, there's something been bugging me the last 6 months or so.

I've seen this forum evolve from a mostly DL dedicated forum, into a much more "generic" arcade videogame focussed forum.

Since by far the most users are from Europe here, wouldn't it be cool to name it something like Euro Arcade Forum ?

It's just an idea of course, and it's definitely not for me to judge or decide.....

But I feel we need a Europe focussed forum and this has grown in that direction the last couple of years....

A new name like that could also attract visitors that may now think this is a DL related-only forum, and thus miss out a lot if they are not interested in that one particular game.

What do you guys think ? Of course Bruno is calling the shots on this and I don't mind whatever happens but it's just a suggestion to think a bit about....

why not just make "arcade lifestyle" the more prominent title of the 2? covers everything on this website i think.

True, it took me about two weeks to figure out why the place was called DLF in the first place  :lol:. But on the other hand i think that arcade lifestyle is kinda soulless. I haven't been on the boards long but i love it here and special the vibe here.

I would suggest something like : The Lair

I would suggest 2 domain names
DLF, that goes to DLF, and ALS that goes to ALS  8)

"Arcade Lifestyle" is the best for me, even if "Dragon's Lair Fans" keeps MAMEcab-oriented newbie far away  :twisted:

I don't mind. I like the content of DLF, and I don't even think about the title of the forum no more.

That's because you know what is here now....you have to think of "passers by" who probably think this is only about DL...

Thats true, it took me a while to discover this great forum. I vote for Arcadelifestyle.com  ;D

My feelings about this  ::)  :arrow:

Even if the Dragon's Lair part of the board is not the most 'animated' apparently, the website himself contains important material related to DL / SA universe.
They are still so much things to say regarding that (cosplay, new artworks, new games to come, new collector items found...), and I can tell you regarding the web statistics tools I have a lot of people browse the website  ;) I also have a lot of mails from guys who are not on the board.   
In my humble opinion, everything is well balanced here... so why to change?  ::)
And the most important... this is what I like for so many reasons  :P So I do not plan to change that for the moment  8)
To finish, you all find the way to reach the Dragon's Lair to come here... so others will do, whatever the main url  ::)

Up the Irons Dragons !  :-*

Well, there's very little against ADDING a domain name. www.arcadelifestyle.com is actually free, and it only costs a couple of euro's per year for the domain name registration. Simply redirect to this site and presto.

But hey, it was just an idea to let the people who think that this forum is DL only related know that it's also about general arcade stuff.

I still think people who could be valuable here are missing it because of this. Just MHO.
