atrata: weekend update

Howdy, fandom.

The technobabble update is that I'm in the process of setting up a dev box. I've got the subversion repository set up, and now I need to configure it to allow multiple users. Then I need to install TRAC, and hook it in to the resository. Then we get coding. The dev team itself is not quite hammered out yet, but it's close. I still have e-mails to send and e-mails to read and e-mails e-mails e-mails, but once the hammering is done, I'll let you guys know who is rocking the behind-the-scenes development work.

One thing I really need to get better at is sorting or noting comments as they come in. I didn't make a running list of name suggestions as they appeared in my inbox, so it took me forever to go through the five pages of comments on that post and find them. Here they are:
  • our thing (okay, that's stil me, but a few of you said you liked it!)
  • postnet
  • crack rack
  • fanthing
  • fandomain
  • sanctuary
  • fantastica
  • fan_freed
  • zippy
  • fandom world
  • fanverse
  • fanspire
  • fanspiration
  • archnalunity
  • the place (because it's time)
  • fanhaven

Other suggestions?

And, last but not least, I set up fandom_flutter as a place to vent, share, post essays, etc. It's still moderated, in order to keep out spammers/advertisers/whatever, but I hope people who are interested in discussing the further implications of the exodus will head over there. I'm going to clear out the mod queue for this comm, and I hope anything that gets rejected will end up over there. I guess I'd like to try to keep this community for Project-related updates. I dunno. It's a fuzzy line. And I've maybe had some drinks, so it's clearly time to step away from the laptop.

Of all the fan prefixed names suggested, I like Fanciful, Fancyfree and Fantabulous best, so far.

Ooo. I was kind of siding with the 'including the word fan could put off non-fans' group, but I really like fanciful and fanfare as names that include 'fan', but not with so much emphasis that it might be taken as excluding people.

Oh I totally approve of these "subtle" inclusions of "fan"! I think fanfare is my favorite :)

Fanfare and fantasm are my favorites, so far.
