DMCA name change

Postby Rohesie » Fri Oct 05, 2018 8:37 am #443313

So, it's been a bit since we started and we are getting slowly more stable and settled. There's still a long way to go, though.

This project started as a mix of memes, when CM's code got leaked, and of a little seed a few people saw potential in for the long-term. MSO, ninjanomnom and Rustled come to my mind foremost, but not only.

It became known as "DMCA" (Digital Marines ; Colonel/Colonial Aliens) after SLC's funny rant, but after a while memes go stale and the people who were in to make fun of CM or build up on that kind of mentality have appeared around less and less. Unsurprisingly, since the fad is over.

I won't hide that I have a vision for the project that I want to make happen, and it doesn't involve trying to substitute or spite CM. Nor become a totally meme server pew-pew. We have Merc Donalds for that, and they do a great job at it. It would be hard to compete there anyway.

If you ask me what I want, I'll only be able to respond in broad terms, because a lot will depend on the playerbase and what they want. But there are some things that are very appealing to me:
1) A less toxic community. People say many things, but I personally find /tg/ and those that have been hanging around DMCA very chill. I'm loving it. I'd like to maintain that. Can't say I feel the same general vibe when I go back to play CM, not intending to offend anyone. Just to praise what I find praise-worthy.
2) A relaxed moderation. So that if you are bwoinked the chances are higher of the staff trying to help you than land you a ban. This is pretty utopic and unspecific, but oh well. It's free to wish.
3) An interesting crew-vs-antags deathmatch-style mixed with bits of RP game mode. I've been around since Kittyshack and the potential for this kind of game mode was obvious even then.
4) Decent relations with other servers, codebases and whatnot. There's no need to be butts with each other, nor with outsiders. This is only game. This involves us removing offending stuff. Sprites and donor gear are the prime examples, and while we have more to do we've already been making progress there.
5) Getting back to the point. I went on a tangent.

Alright, so one step of many is changing the name to something more according to what we are after. That is neither CM 2.0 (technically there have been many CMs and I've headmined one of them, but the established name is theirs, so we have to respect that) nor Merc Donalds 2.0
We'd do good to avoid stuff like clearly copyrighted stuff or things like OpenCM, which are a direct allusion to the other non-open-source server.

TL;DR: Give us suggestions for the new name of the project. Please tone down the memes. No, DMCA ain't a good name, it's pretty retarded, as funny as it is.

I don't really want to move from DMCA, it has a nice ring to it. It's an inside joke that will only get better with age, people might get confused if the name changes, and there's already so many good jokes made around it and I don't want any of them to lose relevance. What's gonna happen to the DMCA song?
