    If we can't get iCafe since someone is hoarding the domain name, I'd say just keep it everythingicafe. I never really cared for the name iPopuli.
    iPCafe? I pee cafe. That's terrible, man.

    :eek: That didn't cross my mind! LOL . I'm cool with it as is. It is trouble and expense to change a domain.

    Not sure how it happened, but it looks like the guy who had iPopuli dropped it. I didn't think that was possible on Twitter. I figured I'd look it up today and boom, there it was. Still have no immediate plans to switch, but it does feel good to grab iPopuli on Twitter.

    I think iPopuli would be an extraordinarily bad idea.

    Worse than leaving magenta, worse than leaving vBulletin, worse than migrating all of the device forums into one iPhone forum.:p

    I think the loss of the word "iPhone" hurt the forum. Thanks, Apple.

    Agreed.
    Magenta is my favorite color and I use this forum a lot, but I still don't care what colors eiC uses as long as they are easy on the eyes. I don't think switching to vBulletin resulted in any major improvements for users (though some of the mod enhancements are nice). I agree that fewer sub-forums is less cluttered and makes navigating easier. I've never liked the name iPopuli and don't understand how the switch would help with traffic or enhance the forum. It just seems needless. I think the meaning is lost on most people anyway. Switching to a name with "iPhone" in it would certainly help, but I know Apple won't allow it, so why bother changing it at all?

    Nap's Place has a nice ring to it.

    The 10 t-shirts sitting on my shelf would have some meaning?

    I'm not changing the name. Years ago, it was a consideration.

    In related news, I do wear my iPopuli shirts and my wife makes fun of them.

    Got any 2XL you are willing to part with? Might be a fun conversation starter.

    I don't think I have any 2XL shirts, but I will check my inventory. Inventory meaning the top shelf of my closet.
