    OK but education is not only "about education". For instance you don't go to the university, only to study fot 3-4 years, graduate and find a decent job. It's about making the most of the best 3-4 years of your life. In my opinion this should also be reflected in the site name.
    Suggest a sensible name, preferbly not too long

    Once the transition to is made to a new url, will google still keep cached pages of ukl? Or will it credit them to banaboo.com?

    I'm going to use it as the curtain raiser for my next erotic novel.
    I didn't know you have already written an erotic novel to start with

    Apparently, pages cached by google 'die away' after some unknown time. But the google hits will still be listed as ukl, unless d specifically tells google to remove them - they don't change automagically.

    When the new site is up and the forum data imported, google will start crawling that and that will start getting listed on google too, and presumably replace the ukl hits eventually. I think.
    That's right.

    If people start to put banaboo.com or whetever in their signatures or just posting it, googlebot will crawl it asap, thus it won't take much time for the new site and all its sub-categories to get listed.

    It doesn't exactly work the way you are thinking.
    Anyway... When I first looked at this thread I really didn't care for the new name at all, I gotta go with Expression, my first thought was bannanas.
    But I must admit the name does grow on you, and I think it would be rather easy to adapt to it. I'm all for it.

    I personally don't really like it.

    Sounds really childish - like playschool speak *shrug* Like that program boobah!
    I agree, I don't like it, it does sound childish and I think you might regret it a few years down the line.

    I think that banaboo sounds quite funky...i can imagine a site filled with lots of bright colours- a really happy place to escape the stresses of life.....

    banaboo.com


    Do you like the name? What does it make you think of? What do you associate it with? I would really appreciate any reactions and comments.

    Many Thanks,
    d.
    For some odd reason, it reminds me of a quirkily designed commercial website. Especially one that does a service like car insurance. Not a bad name though, it's very catchy
