This Close...

Here's a tidbit of info that some of you may or may not care about.

Last year, right before the site really took off traffic wise, I was seriously considering a name change for the site. I had the domain picked out as well, and after giving it some serious thoughts, I decided to stick with FactPile.

Thinking back now, I know it was the right move as you all have created an identity with the main site, you created the name for this forum, and we even call ourselves "FactPilers".

Just a quick reminder that some decisions are meant to take time to resolve.

The name I was thinking of?

I could honestly care less for either one. As long as I recognize something for a month+, I'll get used to it.

I mean, we could have called it GM, we would be Touragers, GameTourageTopia, etc.

I agree with Shy Guy that I would have gotten used to GameTourage eventually, but FacPile just sounds better. As does Factpilers or Pilers in comparison to Touragers... Tourers... I think we'd be GameTourists? Ugh. No, FactPile definitely fits us better.
