I'm in the process of moving our old blog over to a new platform (Medium) as part of our birthday celebrations. In doing so, I'm reconsidering the name, which is currently The Magrathean Forges. That's an OK name, but it could certainly be better.

Has anyone got any other suggestions for names?

The temporary name I put in while we figure out another, for voting:

Universe Factory

Clever names are fun, and one of my favorites since the first time we discussed this topic is Daedalus' Workshop

That said there is a lot are a lot of positives to using something simple (as we chose to do with the chatroom) and go with The world builders' blog

Makes it abundantly obvious what the purpose/intent of the site is.

  • $\begingroup$ I randomly sampled a few of the blogs there and "name: short description" is a common format. So we can have a clever name and then have the tag line say something that includes "the Worldbuilding Stack Exchange community" or some such. $\endgroup$ – Monica Cellio Aug 26 '15 at 19:44

    $\begingroup$ I like it, but I think you switched the "ae" to "ea" in "Daedalus". $\endgroup$ – HDE 226868 Aug 26 '15 at 21:39
  • $\begingroup$ Whoops, didn't notice that when I voted. My vote presumes correct spelling. :-) $\endgroup$ – Monica Cellio Aug 27 '15 at 1:25
  • $\begingroup$ Doh. You'd think a certain mod from writers would have noticed that... $\endgroup$ – James Aug 27 '15 at 14:08
  • $\begingroup$ It's Writers, not Proofreaders. That's the best I can come up with, anyway. That, and insufficient caffeine at the time. :-) $\endgroup$ – Monica Cellio Aug 27 '15 at 15:39

    $\begingroup$ Friendly amendment: Title is Daedalus' Workshop (as you proposed); subtitle is "blog of the Worldbuilding Stack Exchange community". $\endgroup$ – Monica Cellio Aug 27 '15 at 18:24

Just to provide some alternative which is 1) short and 2) a clear reference to WB.

The Built Worlds

World Building Stack Exchange Community Blog

It is unfortunate that blog overflow is being taken down. To help make sure that this blog stays connected with this site, I think we should name it after this site. That also helps with search engines, since then the sites would be more likely to be connected.
