I think the poll question says it all;

In with the old, out with the new! -er! If Fuckmuppet is good enough for me, it's good enough for the rest of you...

I believe the reason it got changed from Fuckmuppet Central in the first place still stands. If it means people can browse the forum at work without the word FUCK in large, bold type then it's better to keep the tame version. After all, it'll always be Fuckmuppet central in our hearts.

Change it to Fartmuppet Central. Fart is a funny word.

I change my vote to this.

If it keeps people from posting, then obviously, it should probably be changed back. However, I still think these people are pansies.

True. Hob has kinda hinted elsewhere that it will make surfing at work hard for him. But the name is popular. Hmmm.

I agree with this, in theory. But also,

Perhaps Gobo could add a "surfs at work" flag to the user profile what would change titles such as "Fuckmuppet Central" to "Vale of Flowers" for unfortunates with that flag set?

Yes I could... I don't know how well it would hold up under upgrades though. So I'm not too eager to look into it.

Actually IF it's doable and would survive upgrades, then I could set it up so you set your work hours and as long as you're logged in it'll be Fartmuppet, or COT, or Workpussy, during those hours, but FMC while you're at home.

Gobo - be aware that we are at least one revision (possibly two) behind the "current state" right now, too.

Just in case you started making revisions, that was all.

Nope, haven't even thought about starting yet... doubt I will. Feckmuppet seems like an excellenet compromise

(Catching up)

Agreed. I'm happy with it, it's not perfect but as a compromise it will take some beating.

Honestly, I got more comments on "Citadel of Truth" than I did for "Fuckmuppet Central." People thought I was part of some bizarre cult or something.
