The Last Order of 2006/The First of 2007
« on: December 31, 2006, 11:58:11 PM »
"The Sonic Center" is a tacky name.  We reached this concensus long ago, and even had a name change topic, which was lost from the various server switches. Nothing was done. Plus, Rolken doesn't have enough to do. So, let's try again.

I'll suggest some names so everyone else can shoot them down and propose their own. No hard feelings.

Half-Ass Attempts at Renaming TSC

Spindashzone (meh)
TimeOver
GreenHill

...Actually, that's it. Someone else say something.

Sonic Ath1337s. Definitely.

However, if you're too lame to realize how cool that would be, here's some other ideas...

Reach for the Rings
One Second Less
ClockStoppers
PsyBorgLand


I'm out of ideas for now, though.

This topic has gone nowhere. No more name suggestions. I weeded the valid suggestions from everything, and will attach it in a poll to the original post. The 'Other' option means that they all suck; if the majority of people vote for that, then pm me what you think the site should be called. Serious messages only; all subsequent pms from anyone "messing with my mind" will be deleted on sight.

I'd like some input from Rolken, so we know if he'll do something with the results. The answer is probably no...but a B for effort I suppose.

Edit: I didn't realize that I'm not able to add polls to existing posts. So I guess I'll just list "plausible" name changes, based mainly on length and common sense, and everyone can indicate their preference via pm. No need to clutter the topic; real posts only. Either that, or a mod could attach a poll to my existing post.

Potential Names
TimeOver
GreenHill
Sonic Time Dome
One Second Less
ClockStoppers
FirstAct (less tacky version of "Act 1")
SonicSpeed
Eggman Empire
SpeedShoes

The "cream of the crop". And now it is time to wait for either validation of the cause, or rejection.

I suggest something like"Sonic Elites" or something else that displays our status as elite Sonic players.
Ever know what its like to get pwned by a book? Sonic certainly does.

TimeOver <-- No, that doesn't work as we are not ALL about TA, but also RA and SA.
GreenHill <-- No, despite that being THE sonic level, it doesn't represent all that we do.
Sonic Time Dome <-- "Hey, you should totally join this place, its called STD." Plus "dome" just doesn't work.
One Second Less <-- We are more than one second less than most people. Plus a second is a lot of time for most levels.
ClockStoppers <-- If we were a Sand Ocean or Cannon's Core based board this would work. NEXT.
FirstAct   <-- We don't just to 2D. Plus what does the first act have to do with anything?
SonicSpeed <-- At least the other names sounded okay. This just sounds like bad grammar.
Eggman Empire <-- Someone remind me how that has anythign to do with TSC...
SpeedShoes <-- This one is okay, but I just don't like it that much <_<

I say stay with TSC.

1] It shows that we are about Sonic, and we don't use a generic time attack name.
2] It is broad enough to cover everything we do.
3] It sounds just fine to say. Its initials don't stop people from coming here. [See - Sonic Time Dome]
4] It is the classic name. People on this board always say classics Sonics are better (which I object to), so why not stay with the classic name?



Edit: Sonic Elites doesn't seem so bad either. That would be my 2nd choice.
Current Championships: SSR (5/26/08-Now)
Current Leaderships: SSR Chains [0 Point], SC Rings [0 Point], SSR Scores [0 Point], S3D Rings [0 Point], SSR Times [0 Point], SSR Bosses
Past Leaderships: SA2 Rings, S1GG Rings, SUWii Rings, SBK Times, SBK Chains, SRA Rings, SRA Scores

lol genus i was kidding about the eggman empire, there is already a site called that. (:\ hard to belive but ya)
I like sonic speed, and sonic time dome (just to piss sonic cage dome off) from the list, I couldnt decide which I like better though :( so eh.. someone else pick for me out of those two.

First things first: I really like the name "The Sonic Center", it´s only flaw (that i can see) is that it does not tell that this site is mainly about playing the game, and playing it on a high level.

So what about "The Sonic Competition Center", or just "Sonic Competition Center"?

Advantages:
- Its more specific, it says "Okay, we´re here to play Sonic games, not to read fan fiction or talk about the comics".
- It´s got the word "Sonic" in it, which many of the other suggestions don´t, making clear what it´s all about. Also this increases the chance that someone might get here over google or something.
- It´s pretty close to the original name.
- It´s not already used by another site. There is already a Sonic-related site called "The Green Hill Zone".
- I don´t know any disadvantageous abbreviation for TSCC, unlike with STD :-)
- It´s not bound to a specific 2D or 3D Sonic game.

Disadvantages
- It´s longer than the original name.
- It´s different from the original name, which might confuse people. Obviously this is a flaw of a name change in itself.

These are all i can think of right now, there might be some more negative things to it but i can´t see them at the moment. Also, reading the topic again i realized that i just re-stated lots of the things already said by Ring Rush. Too lazy to edit them out. :-)

Also, out of the suggestions i also like Sonic Elites the most, except that it sounds... well, elitist :-)

Disclaimer (At the end, yeah ^^)
English is not my native language, so if you find any grammar errors in this post you may keep them and sell them on ebay ... or point them out to me to help me improve my english.

read the sonic  center's constitution, it seems to mean they dont really like people finding out about this site, so sonic time dome or std would be a perfect name for this place. the first time I found out about this place was when someone was posting the movies all over gamespot and the said it was from TSC, if it would have said from STD I would of probubly never came here. (lol srry guys its to late now) I CALL STD!

It only says traffic should be managed if North Korea starts nuking people.  Which is what we call a "joke".  While we don't want the place swarming with idiots, we do want good players to come here.  Also Sonic Time Dome is either 1) implying we're associated with SCD or 2) childishly poking fun at them at our own expense.  Neither is a good idea.

I call stay as TSC but put a subtitle on the front page along the lines of "The Premier Sonic Game Competition Site" or something.

Eh, TSC4 won't come for a long time I presume, but I still agree that there is no need to change the name. The Sonic Center, as simple as it is, just works. No need for extravagent names. The Sonic Center is simple. We are the centre for Sonic. Unless you want to make it more obvious and say (The) Sonic Compeition Center, eh that sounds worse, scratch that. but TSC just flows, I say leave as is.

lol what the hell goes in a "the sonic center" mall? paper and hard back guides and dvd and blue-ray videos of our runs? then again maybe a few people would like to see the fastest skeet strom record holder in action. ;)

but really selling speed run video's and guides is not a bad idea (ah, what am I wasting my time for this is never going to happen)

EDIT: ah, yes and have a little department for SDM where people come in and give him the emerald challenge runs, and if they pass they get a lil plastic chaos, super, or master emerald. cough drop department anyone?

with TSC4 coming up, Ithink it might be best to just call it

"The Sonic Center 4"

or version 4 or however you want to make it out

I never really had a beef with the name. I actually like it the way it is.

Sonic elite isn't bad either, I like that.
