PostSubject: Suggestions for renaming Gamerpedia   Thu Aug 18, 2011 10:24 am

It seems that sometime soon, Gamerpedia is going to have to undergo a re-branding effort. The reason for this is twofold. Firstly, I've discovered that the term "Gamerpedia" itself is not very original, and has been used many times before to refer to the idea of an encyclopaedia or guidebook for one or more games; and there's even been at least two Wikis before that used that name though I believe both are now dead. This creates a real difficulty for brand recognition. The second thing is that domains for Gamerpedia recently got bought by this big company (who doesn't actually appear to be using them), and acquiring the domains now is virtually impossible. I decided, therefore, that the best move is to form a brand new identity for the website.

So, in the next few months, Gamerpedia is going to have a revamp; and I'm going to need ideas for a new name for the site, as well as designs for a brand new logo. I have few ideas of my own though, so I thought it was best to get others involved to help me. I've decided, therefore, to ask the communities I trust the most with my own website projects. Those are the DJs at Sanitarium.FM; and you guys.

If you have any ideas for a potential new name for Gamerpedia, post it here and lets hear it. I'll keep a list of most of them on this post. You CAN suggest multiple ideas, even if you've posted here already; so feel free to suggest anything you come up with! I just have two rules: One, the name should still make it clear what the purpose of the site is; and two, that you remember Gamerpedia is NOT just video games. I would also appreciate logos, but you don't have to - that can be sorted out later.

Ideas so far and who submitted them:
InformaGamer (Littlered)
GAMENCYCLOPEDIA (Macro)
GAMAPEDIA (RedHerring)
Gamerhelper (PyroSkrall)
The Gamers Collection of Information (MichaelN... may be better as a Slogan)
EncycloGamer (Grhym)
The Gamer's Archive (Choco)
GamesCodex (Choco)
GameCation (Eupharia)
Digital Codex (BreadstickNinja)
Tactix Encyclopedia (BreadstickNinja)

I like TheGameSource although it's very close to GameSource (Don't google GameSource). GamerCentral and MediaPedia are both registered domains.

Sounds like a site I certainly would want to visit! lol!

Any suggestions that I consider as being "serious", that have not been confirmed unsuitable as of yet, have now been added to the first post. However, if I may say so, I'm kind of disappointed by how many of you don't really seem to be doing much with the name at all. Actually, I'm more disappointed about how few serious suggestions there have actually been overall - I know it's not really your style or mine to take everything seriously, Team Dramander, but this IS kind of a big deal for me and I do need there to be at least some focus on the task. I don't want the jokes to stop, just make sure you have a serious one in there too.

The Gamers Collection of Information

(The) InfoGamers

IGamer

----

I don't know the criteria since I haven't exactly followed the topic, but I thought I'd go ahead and add my suggestions. Of course take what you will from the list. I do hope I helped a tiny bit.

InfoGamers and GameSource are already in use, being the names of leading Gaming blogs in Spain and Russia respectively. GamesZone is too similar to GameZone which is an American website for sharing gaming cheats and previews. All three are out of the running.

This seems to fall into the same trap as Gamerpedia in that it's a very generic name. Not to mention the assumed link with Apple it might put in people's minds.

I also think "The Gamers Collection of Information" sounds more like a slogan than a name, but it's on the list anyway, as is Grhym's EncycloGamer.

We are looking for names that would be appropriate for a Gaming Wiki, to potentially use as a new name for Gamerpedia in the future. It must be a name that isn't already used by anything well-known; it should be one that can explain the site's purpose from the first time you look at it; but it must NOT lean too much towards a specific category of gaming.

I don't have any real criteria for what I put on the list or not so long as these rules are followed; but I'm more likely to plump for names that are punchy and/or short; and less likely to go for names that look or sound too similar to what's already been suggested.

I've been thinking about this on and off since I got back, so here are a few of my fail suggestions:

GameBase

GameHub

The Gamer's Archive

GamesCodex

There are too many already taken from a lot of the ideas I had and I think I forgot some since last night :S

Just had to take my own "Wikigamer" off of the list as I've discovered wikigamer.org and .com are taken...

Okay, based on domain availability, feedback from various communities and my own personal satisfaction with the given suggestions, I have now decided on the new name for Gamerpedia. The site will relaunch later this week, once I have it all configured properly; and I'll post an announcement about it at this time.

Requesting topic lock.
