Uh.. what would the new name be?

"Uk learning" sounds okay to me.. not very catchy or "cool" though.

If d is combining a lot of projects into one via this new name change, then it's really not just us that it's affecting. Therefore, if the new site (or whatever) not going to be solely academic then there is no point in it still being UK-Learning! However, it would be nice for the forum part to stay as UKL but I don't think it's a certain, it just needs to be something that doesn't sound ridiculous. I never thought catchiness would be an issue unless it was being advertised all over the place.

If the name is changed, the forum will use a lot of user, and will not attract as many yet unknown potential users, especially with a silly name which could possibly be Banaboo. I think UKL is fine, and appropriate for what the site is, and always has been, by opening it up for discussion, it encourages the spammers who fail to acknowlegde that the primary purpose of the forum is that of education.

Nothing can really sum the forum up though, and it's still heavily "learning" based. I don't think the name should be changed.

No, it will merge with another one of d's forums', I think that the format will stay pretty much the same.

This should explain stuff a little better.

this could be a major problem for the d's other forum uses too, creating a mass of hysteria that i personally, feel is a serious waste of time

Is that from the subscriber forum? I don't have permission.

I think that if d changed the name and expaned the content to other parts of the globe then he could make a lot more money.

Make it sound at least educational if you're going to change it.

Why change what works?
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
