On the future of the forums
« on: August 04, 2013, 12:35:56 pm »
By now, some of you have already seen Distind's post on the shutdown of the forums. It's here, in case you haven't. The short version is, well, Distind is shutting down the forums. His reasons are detailed in his post. Since I like this community and don't want it to disappear, I'll be setting up a new forum, not associated with FSTDT.

Kradorex has offered to host us at Digibase, using the same forum software we're using now (SMF). Since we would be a different community, we need a new name. A few suggestions were already brought up by the mods:

-Shit Said on the Net

-Wingnut Whine

-Shit Fundies Say Café

Anyway, since there's no particular reason to limit ourselves to ideas brought up by the mod team, I'm opening up to suggestions from anyone who wants to be part of the new community (hopefully, all of you). As well, voice any questions, suggestions or comments you may have regarding the new forums here.

Casting my vote for "Shit Fundies Say." The whole "Darndest Things" bit is a tad outdated anyway.

Seconding. It keeps the spirit but updates the colloquialism.

I am going to say that I like Shit Fundies Say myself, so I am voting for that one.

Another vote for "Shit Fundies Say Cafe", it's awesome.
From international relations to religious rivalries, from marriage to athlete's foot, whatever the problem a fundy's first solution is usually violence.

More options could be:   "Shit said about crap"  "Crap said about shit"  "Poop is crap.  It's shit too."

Am I the only one who doesn't like that suggestion? Actually, I'd like a title without the word shit in it.

And I like the word darndest...
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Shit Shitters Shit. Okay, that is a joke. And I'm sure "Distind's Rage Quit Refugees" is bad, so, Shit Fundies Say. Or, for new ideas:
* Shit Idiots Shit
* Moron Mockery
* Refugees From Idiocy
* Raggle Flaggle Blaggle.

Shit Fundies Say is a good choice.

The only suggestion I can think of off the top of my head for a name would be something like "shit spewing fundies(dot)com.

I'm sorry to see you go, too, Distind. I hope you have a wonderful wedding and many happy years with one another.
