    Question What's in a name?

    Following the discussion in another thread I tought we could find a way to settle the ongoing debate about what the world should be called. The fairest way would be a poll and I think all members of the guild should be able to participate in it.

    If you have a suggestion for a name, please post it here togther with any motivation you may want to add. I will put the first 10 in a poll (unless there are less). Please only suggest one name.

    Shouldn't it be something based on "Arcana", it would seem a good way to say thanks.

    I think "Arcanus" would make a wonderful University City or magic center.


    As to the name of the whole world I think you should pick something that you can sustain and revive for the whole site.

    Cartos Has a decent ring to it.


    Seriously, you could also adopt the name of the project and commit yourself to never giving the world an official name. Let the person who uses it name it for themselves. Underscores their role in giving it life.


    The other thing that you might consider is that I believe there is a sister site to Cartographers Guild

    http://www.thecbg.org/news.php

    And

    http://www.plotstorming.com/


    It might be an elegant thing to solicit involvement, in some manner, from the other sites. At some stage you will want more people if you want to push through to the whole world.

    I think I need more sleep because I read that as two words the first time. "Arcanata" or "Arcanatus" is less prone to misinterpretation by folks like me, I think.
