i think the wordplay in "The Film Projector" actually works better with "the" at the beginning

So was there any point in having this last vote? The community voted but we're going to just pick something different now?

I wanted to wait and see if we could think of anything better in the last minute but if we can't we will purchase filmonthebrain.

yeah, i don't mean to undermine the vote.. but if someone DID come up with a clearly superior name at the last second, i don't think we should discount it

Since it's the last minute I decided to spend some time searching others. These are also available....let me know if you like any.

ReelSociety
FilmPopulation, CinemaPopulation
MotionPicturePublic
FilmFollowers
NationOfCinema
MoviePopulace

Of these I like ReelSociety and MotionPicturePublic myself.....and I think both are superior to filmonthebrain......

i'd vote for reelsociety too. someone put it up to vote along with filmonthebrain, which by the way, is still really boring, but it did beat cinemaroundtable, although i wonder who is doing all the voting

Yeah... Do we have 23 members that are on once a month?

I like reelsociety, but I also like filmonthebrain. I liked roundtable as well. TheFilmProjector, not so much so... I mean, we are trying to project what films are going to do, so it takes on a double meaning.... But I just don't like it.

Post by NSpan on Sun Oct 18, 2009 1:32 pm

i'll need someone to second my proposal, but i move that we take at least ONE last poll with a few of the Johnny-Come-Lately suggestions.. it should be between FilmOnTheBrain, ReelSociety, and TheFilmProjector... (i'd include CinemaRoundTable, but i guess that one is dead'n'buried after this record-breaking turnout)..

to be clear, i don't wanna mitigate the opinion of the MAJORITY who voted for "filmonthebrain"--but, as i said, this isn't anything we need to rush into... if we really have a clear winner, a little tiny bit o' extra scrutiny shouldn't bring it down

Yeah I'll second that- it looks like we won't be coming to a unanimous decision so soon, so let's explore all options, including recent ones, until it feels that something really fits. I voted for Filmonthebrain, but only because I liked it more than Cinema Round Table. Reel Society (although my only criticism is that it won't be long before reels become a term of the past) and The Film Projector are much better, for example.

Alright who has been setting up the polls?

Let's do one more between filmonthebrain, reelsociety and thefilmprojector.

Whatever wins will be the name of our site.

I really like The Film Projector because of the double meaning that W pointed out. I think that is pretty cool. It has my vote.

reelsociety is pretty good though. I wouldn't hate it if that won.

11 votes so far, and none for FilmOnTheBrain..

so, in the event that the poll results continue in this way:

i was thinking... we should probably give our movie game a proper name, too.. what if the overall site becomes ReelSociety while we title the game itself Film Projector.. (or even Fantasy Film Projector)

I favor reelsociety for two reasons... first of all, though I see both both sides of the argument for thefilmprojector that W and geez have brought up, I'm leaning just to the "con" side of the road on that subject, and second, "reelsociety" works because i can't think of any other website whose name is even close, nor one that is a better all-encompassing description of the Fantaverse (that we can choose from, anyway). Plus, simply for aesthetic reasons, "reelsociety" is better because it doesn't include the "the" in the name.

Whichever one ends up winning, however, I'll be satisfied. A lot more than I would have been if "filmonthebrain" had ended up being our new name, I can tell you that....

Yes I am also happy it wont be filmonthebrain.

Also if it becomes reelsociety we could definitely name the box office game "the film projector" if people want.
