You have to do it the first time you vote. I assume this is so you don't just keep voting after you see the results. You can vote more than once because this is just a poll to gauge which options might make a final poll. Which are the most popular.

I don't know why Mr. Ham won't use box office or moguls. First of all, I feel like box office is almost synonymous with what the site is all about. It is about reporting all things new movies, which are coming out at the box office. I'm sure there will end up having box office predictions on the site, as well as reporting the box office takes. On top of that of course there will be reviews and news... about movies that affect the box office.

As far as moguls is concerned, there I can kinda see the point. However, I don't think that just because something has moguls in the name doesn't mean that it is referring to our game. I think it has much more to do with the industry. If you ask the average person they aren't going to think of "fantasy moguls" if they hear the word. I think they would think of the behind the scenes news on movies, which I am sure is what people will come to discover on the site. It also gives us a sense of self, like we aren't slipping away from what brought us all together in the first place. We are the moguls, and we shouldn't be trying to run away from our sense of self.

Basically what I am trying to say is that nothing should be ruled out if the majority like the name. I do agree that people should be polling their friends that don't know who we are to see what they think is catchy, flashy or would get them to visit a movie site. We all have our favorites, but these are the people that we are changing the name for, basically.

Bottom line, vote in the poll as much as you'd like if you haven't already, we will have a new one up in a day or two, and I don't think this should be a quick process. We need to have a permanent name for a permanent home. Why rush this? It should be an absolute majority decision that most people will be happy with.

Keep the names coming if you have them. There hasn't been a clear front runner yet so for all we know, the eventual name could have never even been brought up yet.

And please, lets have some fun with this and not treat it like the fate of the world rests on this name.

Yes well, NSpan, that movie club thing isn't so accessible to those of us who don't have netflix Sad Otherwise I'd have been on board.

I am not trying to rush this process by any means I just think if we do polls it should be limited to five or so choices. Polls of ten choices won't give us an indication of anything because each choice will get 2-3 votes.

I still strongly believe box office should not be in the name. There is already a place boxofficemojo that focuses on the box office only. I don't want people to confuse us with them. The site is literally going to be everything movies we will not feature any one thing more than the next.

If anything I think the name should focus more on the theme of community involvement. Most if not all movie sites we cant really contribute anything outside of posting on their message board. We will be a very interactive, community focused site with all content coming from our users. So the title should align with that theme in my opinion.

I just though of one that would represent a theme of community involvement.

How about OurMovieHood.com

moviehood.com is taken by a url prospector (someone that buys them from places like godaddy and tries to flip them for a profit). So it could be bought ($250 minimum) if this thing really gets going. But, I like the inclusion of the word Our anyways.

Sounds like a place to talk about movies like State Property or I Got The Hook-Up. I hate it.

I didn't think anyone would take it that way as it wasn't hoodmovies.com (which would include some good movies considering not all African American comedies are those films you mentioned just like all teen comedies aren't Miss March).

From the current list, I think Cinemoguls is the best. It's pretty catchy (some of the longer names are clunky) and it makes reference to both films and also the game. What I think we should consider is the accessibility of the name to newcomers, because the site really has to start attracting people (it feels at the moment that we're losing people!)

i don't really like any that combine two words to make a new word because it just isn't recognizable and we would have to work insanely hard to make it so. That's why I'm not crazy about filmaniacs. I'd also tend to go for the word movie over film because most people don't say "Hey Joe, want to go see that new film this weekend" unless they are all proper and snobbish. Most people say "Let's go to the movies." From the outsider perspective that is a common theme.

I think its time we can narrow this down little bit and add cinemaroundtable. I'll have a new poll up soon.

I'm going to make this one so you can only vote once and see where we end up, so choose only your favorite. I did leave off thefilmhaven because of filmhaven being taken.

Actually, maybe it's just a US thing, because everyone I know says film rather than movie. Or maybe it's just the people I know...

Mr. Ham, going by the last poll, that option only got 3 votes. I only included options that got 4 votes or more. I figured if filmonthebrain beat it 4-3 in that poll, it was the more popular option of the two, regardless of how much worse it rolls off the tongue in my opinion. I had to cut the poll down like you said and if I included it we would have only been cutting two options to 8. At least this way we are down to 7.

Personally I think cinemaroundtable is superior to any other option.

Silver Screen Moguls is focused on the game, it's too specific.

I don't think its focused on the game, especially since fantasy moguls is defunct and no one outside of us knows what it means. Like I said before, it is more referring to the movie business than the game. And the movie business is a huge chunk of what the site comprises, which is why i think moguls is ok, as well as silver screen being synonymous with the movies. I actually liked that name I had and thought it was my best one.

That said, I also voted for cinemaroundtable in this poll.

I went ahead and went with roundtable. It gives us a nice theme that we could use for almost anything.

movieroundtable.com has already been prospected, meaning you probably won't get it too very cheap.

cinema is probably the best we'll get.
