It looks like the friendster forum has lost a lot of it's traffic so I though it would be a good time to look at changing it's name. I was thinking of being less specific and targeting all web applications and community sites. Sites that you can theme like facebook, myspace as well as blog and cms like drupal, joomla, wordpress ...

Any ideas for a good name?

The drawback to this is it

The drawback to this is it will give the impression that detailed help and knowledge will be available on these sorts of apps, and we all know how impossible some of them are to provide help with in respect of straightforward HTML/CSS.

It won't hurt to change the name though seems pointless leaving it so specific.

Personally I would rather see a sub forum that perhaps dealt more specifically with the HTML markup part of the equation

Also be careful about

Also be careful about offering 'theme' help. Themes in the first instance are the responsibility of the authors not of third parties; it arises from time to time that people bring problems to third parties rather than addressing them to the apps forums or themes authors who are much more able to offer guidance with detailed knowledge.

To be honest, now that we've lost a lot of Friendster traffic, and we only get the occasional MySpace query ... why not get rid of it altogether?
