Creative Corner - rename?  

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
It's a forum for Mac users to flex their artistic muscles. I'll tell you straight up "Creative Corner" was my idea, but let's throw it out to you guys and see what you come up with. By 8am tomorrow (3/10/05) we'll close suggestions and I'll start a poll so we can decide on a new name.

So far, serious suggestions we've got:
Creative Corner
Creative Convention
Member Mockups
Member Artwork
Picture Pages


Those will be in the poll. Let's have some more (or let's have some outrage against the suggestions we've got).

The artist's chamber

The house of the artist

The home of the artist, or , The artist's home

I personally really like "creative Corner." It might help people to have a more clear idea of what the vision is... what kind of discussion. Do we talk here about tools, or just the work.

How about
"innovation central"
"creative central"
"the jury" (a reference to those in arts-based programs in school)
"caffeine leak"
"creative leak"

How about we either trash it permanently or tie it to some sort of creativity contest? Best Garage Band song, Best Pages Template, Best iMovie, etc.

Have it resurrect periodically (like Temporary Insanity), perhaps annually to promote the site.

Good suggestion. Any member will be free to open a friendly contest. I will love to hear some Garage band song midi importation of TrumpetMan

OK. I'm warming to 'Creative Corner' a bit now I'm unbanned.

I like 'The Left Bank' (as in artists in Paris, and, you know, 'left field') and Café [Something].

Café Creatrix?

(I'm shit at naming things.)

Café Dominatrix!

No.

The Left Bank!

How about 'Apple Outsider'?

OK. How about, um, 'Salon Silicon', as in, Parisian artists 'salon' culture.

'The Loft'. Artsy.

'The Garret'.

Hey, how about 'Tha Garret', for that ironic faux-urban thing?

I'm shit at naming things.

The name for the forum is fine, I just don't think there are going to be any posts in it.

The forum is for discussion of everything about art. Tools, creations, everything.

That immediately made me think of "Rocket Man" by Elton John sung by William Shatner.

And....I think.... it's going to be.........a ....long......long....time...

Oh screw it..

KHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ANNNNNNN!

Good work, guys. Let's go ahead and get some new ones and start whittling down what we already have.

Those of you who have submitted names:
For the sake of not having a poll with 80 options, pick one or two of your strongest and throw them out here. I like the funny ones, but let's think about the poll that the members are going to actually vote on.

Here's the master list:
Creative Corner
Creative Convention
Member Mockups
Member Artwork (Buon is nothing if he's not utilitarian)
Picture Pages
The Artist's Home
Innovation Central
The Loft (I have no damned clue what a Garrett is, don't forget most of us are vulgar Americans )
The Quilt
The Left Bank

Please tell me you're offended if your suggestion was actually serious and I didn't. Also, tell me if it is not and I thought it was.

Keep it up. You've got ~19 more hours to throw in suggestions.

Those are all retarded. How about something simple, like "the gallery"

or if you wanna get fancy:

The Louvre

You know, it would be awesome to have a no-rules forum called "CONFIMRED!!11!OMGPLASTICSLOL!!" or something like that.

(Patterned after FYAD for the SA.com readers amongst us.)

Or maybe that wouldn't work because it would leak out onto the other forums.

It's called PoliticalOutsider right now. Just change the name. Or did you expect good things to come of this?

'Right Brain' gets my vote.

And I might be a woman but I ain't your bitch.

(I don't know what this means, but I don't think there's a comeback.)

Would you like "Right Brain" to take the place of "Left Bank" on the master list?

Polls have a 10 option limit, so if we could get under that it would be great.

Creative Corner
Creative Convention
Right Brain
Member Mockups
Member Artwork
The Loft
The Left Bank (?)
The Gallery
InsiderArt

Creative Convention or Corner. I only want one in the poll.
