forum name

Post by Admin on Wed Dec 13, 2017 8:43 pm

Hi all, it has been noticed the lack of members, and a possibility that this could be due to the use of the old name, and some possible new members feeling that we are "old hat"
So, it has been suggested that we throw it open to members as to what the new name should be. Something interesting informative and inviting to hopefully attract new members. Any ideas? I have one suggestion already which was interesting Smile

Any ideas, please put them forward here, then I will rename it Monsters Mayhem. lol! lol! lol!

But seriously, lets see what we can do.

Cheers

Well, if I were searching for a site about self-sufficiency in Ireland, the first thing I would google would be "self-sufficiency Ireland". As far as I am aware, there is no site with that name so, presumably, anyone searching for that would be directed to us if we adopted that name. Or maybe not? Like I say, I'm a low-tech man in a high-tec world, so I might be wrong. I mean, you can go down the poetic route and call it something like "green nuggets from the emerald isle" but who would ever find it? I'd be fairly sure that people looking for a site like ours would quickly find it under "self-sufficiency Ireland".

I agree entirely. "Self Sufficiency Ireland" is great but do we need to include the rest of the world somehow?

I don't know wayland, the subtitle for CT&T has always been "smallholding and country life in IRELAND" so its always been about the emerald isle, and that has never stopped people from all over the world joining in.

Sounds good to me. I can't for the life of me remember how I got to join.
Including "smallholding" is great.

I don't like "Eire" - it's a word hardly anybody uses. Most native speakers use "Eirinn". I'd be innclined to stick with "Ireland".

I think that "Self Sufficiency Ireland" covers all, even those with just a garden or allotment.
