Campaigning for "Allakhazam" to be the official FC name... Follow

#1 Aug 22 2013 at 7:27 PM Rating: Excellent
Fixing some strange thread I saw a minute ago..

Bulletpoint style:

- It is not lame
- It is the original name of our community.
- It is all encompassing.
- It is easy to remember.
- It wicked-catchy can be taken seriously.
- It doesn't start with a "Z" like fuc*ing Zoro.
- It will be easy to direct new people to the forums if they are interested in our group.
- There's a whole thread on the forums dedicated to campaigning for it.

Synopsis: Vote "Allakhazam" to be the official FC name for our community.

Screenshot

Do you see what that says? Magical Realm..

Naming it ZAM is blasphemy.

Seeing as this is a direct response to the thread campaigning for ZAM I find some of your points to be a little odd...

- There's no way anyone could possibly say Allakhazam sounds more serious or could be taken more seriously than ZAM. ZAM seems like an abbreviation or shorthand (since it is), Allakhazam is something my pre-schooler yells when she gives me a magic show.

- Words starting with Z are inherently dumb/immature/not taken seriously?

- The forums are called ZAM nowadays, not Allakhazam, so if we are considering names due to the ease of directing new people to these forums then ZAM definitely has the upper hand here.


I really don't care either way. I want to join the ZAM ls but I have friends who I will be creating/joining a FC with. I just thought that some of the points that were made here were just a little..... idk maybe theyr a little off imho.

I kinda thought it was a joke post (with underlying intentions of wanting the FC to be named Allakhazam). I thought it was amusing.

Thank you Bartel. I still don't know why people take everything I say so seriously around here.

No, it was the original emblem for these forums. I must be getting old. When someone suggested that we name the LS "ZAM", I thought to myself "haha no one is going to vote for that." Boy was I wrong! I guess it's easier for the kiddies to type it into their Galaxy S9000s or whatever they're glued to these days. (kidding again, don't crucify me)

I admit I chuckled a bit when I first read you're original post earlier today. Even re reading it right now made me laugh. The "zoro" point is the best.
