"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet."
I'll be the first to admit that our site's name is pretty dreadful and clumsy. I never had any great aspirations for the site, so the name was sort of slapped-on as an afterthought. We've come a very long way since the humble beginnings
One one hand, the name is pretty well integrated and spread around the web, and it used to reflect fairly accurately what the site dealt with.
One the other, since we went to CASA 2.0, the name has become somewhat misleading, and again and again I notice that people unfamiliar with the site write it off as being a walkthrough archive only.
I think it's a shame if people skip our site because the name gives off the wrong signals.
The connection between "CASA" and "solutionarchive.com" is not really obvious, either.
And the logo sucks, anyway
I've thought of various way to remedy the situation:
- get a new domain name (CASA.net, CASA-games.com or whatever is available. classicadventuressolutionarchive.com is obviously too long)
- find a better name that will keep the same acronym (Classic Adventures Statistics Archive - awful, but you get the idea)
- make a new logo that makes the reason for the discrepancy between site name and site address obvious.
- come up with a really catchy tagline ("CASA - the house of adventuring" or something along those lines)
