I don't know, but part of me does, as well.

I was gonna suggest "Moronic Ignorant Quotes", but I love "Frequently Questioned Answers" too much to pass up. So FQA gets my vote.

*EDIT*:

Either that or I could also suggest "The DERPorium"

Voted for Frequently Answered Questions as well, since it fits so well.

Changed my vote to Frequently Questioned Answers. At first I didn't like it, & thought it was too wordy, but reading the context made me change my opinion. It still had a wordiness problem, but eh.

And for Lithp: Why would it be a bad thing that the name is broad?

...Why don't we just call it "A Message Board," by that logic?

Is it strange that I like that one, for no other reason than it'd be the perfect smart-ass board name?
Yeah, and it could have a tagline like "Where People Talk About Things"

It is decided, then. "A Message Board" it is!

And now I'm mad I didn't put "A Message Board" on the poll, would've been the best title. Oh well.

Our name has been decided as Frequently Questioned Answers, so huzzah for that. Also, it seems we should be able to save everything on this forum and set it up on the next one, so huzzah for that as well.

Except the mainpage link, but even if there was at first a glimmer of hope that that could be kept (even under "Friends of FSTDT" rather than the top banner), I imagine that boat has sailed given all the vitriol hurled at Distind since he announced that the forum would no longer be directly affiliated with FSTDT.

So will anything happen to the IRC?  I assume not, but it's something that I consider important to consider.

As far as I'm aware, unless Distind wants us to change the IRC name, nothing will happen to it.

And if it does change, I'm sure we'll have FQA or some version of it available for us to use.

I voted for Daily Affirmations, but I love Frequently Questioned Answers as well.

I'm glad to see that the new forum will have a great name.
