    Just make sure that the redirect is in place for a loooooooong time so that the users can get used to the address.

    I quite like it (it's French for something I think.....isn't it?!? :confused: ). It seems unique so I would think that it could become popular quite quickly. I'm very in favour of the single word address as it will be much more convinient for newcomers and therefore should increase popularity. As Andy says I think a redirect would be essential to ensure that we take the current following with us.

    Its rather like Royal Mail changing their name to concentrica because it sounded modern, after just one year it was called Royal Mail again.

    Banaboo is not bad though it sounds a bit more funky like a lot of other student forums. However a name like this may attract less serious people and course more moderation problems.

    Hmmm.. I can't say I'm feeling it. It reminds me of that Destiny's Child song, bug a boo? Something like that? It sounds like it should be "wanadoo"'s sister too

    Hmmm, I like it I think, the first thing that came into my head was "Bruce Banner" aka The hulk.

    It's catchy though and easy to remember.

    Noone unfortunately, nobody submitted anything really following the guidelines. Perhaps because I failed to really convey what I was looking for.

    I really wouldn't worry, the changes will be handled as sympathetically as we can.
