Who are we?
« on: March 21, 2008, 12:52:24 AM »

It is time to name the community.  It was easy when our domain name was some meaningless anime gibberish, but now that we've largely divorced ourselves from the premises, it's time for us to figure out what we want to call ourselves.

It needn't be based on anything in particular; SA calls it members "goons," etc.  But it should evoke a sense of pride and nostalgia, it should be something we can universally identify with, and it should be awesome on a t-shirt.

I propose that we go with the first name that everybody hates but nobody can think of any other reasons why not to use it.

How about "failures"?

I think it has a certain ring to it. We [are] the failures of the Worst Forums Ever.

"How about the `Fat Obstreperous Jerks'?"



I like it! This name, being such an obvious contrast to our true nature
will fool our enemies into believing we are harmless
because surely only fools would let themselves be known by such a name!
Once again, Great Teacher, you have shown your wisdom. We thank you.
From this day forward, we are the Fat Obstreperous Jerks!

I actually refer to you guys as a "hive". For reasons that can only be explained as too much Star Wars.

I'd think that from a historical stand point, both the FFags and Mad Gear make the most sense. Of course, since WoW it's been the Legitimate Business men which was an obscure Simpsons reference if such a thing even exists.

Our bizzare obsession with Castlevania makes me think it should be something like the Wall Whippers or the Pot Roast Eaters or something... the Cherry Pop Bloods?

I dunno, I kinda hate all of those.

We do have a Metalgear obsession too though, so we could be something like the Genome Soldiers or to represent how we are a bunch of Internet addicted fags who actually understood MGS2 a little bit, we could be the Menome Soldiers. I do like the idea of being clones of the greatest Internet joke to ever live. Though I don't believe Sharkey is deserving of that title. He's no Chocolate Rain.

My objective in this isn't to come up with a super cool team name, it's that I can't figure out how to refer to anyone.  Like, I can't say, "Oh, he's from the Worst Forums Ever," because none of us really are.

My new ideas involve the word "Solid."  Solidfags.  Can't seem to get away from the word "fag."

Anything that ends in "ticon" is probably okay.

You're all just internet to me.

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

Potential new titles:

Anything With Fag in it, Really

Isn't Legion a 4chan thing?  Otherwise, I'd put it among the top contenders.

And calling ourselves the "Sharkticons" would be a little too much like massaging your balls while we blow you.

Worsties is okay, but it is based on the name of the forum, so when this one burns to the ground we'll be stuck in the same rut.

I think "Black Army" sounds badass, which makes it totally inappropriate.

I actually really liked Menome Soldiers.

Also, Kazz told me that he really liked The Cherry-pop Bloods over Ventrilo because it reminded him of forcefully taking a girls virginity which has always been an appealing image to him.

Sons of Faggotry

That reminds me of the "Sons of Apathy" CoH group that was around before I actually played.  I liked that name.

Well, if misogyny and deifying Sharkey is the idea, we could always call ourselves Sharkers.

Legitimate Businessmen. LB. Sounds good, looks good, feels good. Has worked. A Simpsons reference without the modern-day Simpsons after-taste. Continues to work. Will work in Warhammer(Orkify it, I dare you.) Doesn't suck Sharkey's cock. I mean, as much as I vaguely respect Sharkey's and his unifying us, I don't feel the need to suck his cock.
