True dat. "VIC" would be cool. I dunno though. My suggestion is that it be something that sounds/looks/can be Identified with phpBB, so that people will associate the two in their minds. Not really sure the best way to do this. (Although phpPP is pretty close) I will keep thinking... :idea:

What about something more funny along the lines of "Just another Portal" (Hey, "JAP" sounds almost as cool as "VIC").

absinthe, you are right but as you see this is not as easy at it seems. I say lets just be stupid for a while :) perhaps we will find something.

I'm stupid all the time :D
**walks away muttering "hyperportal" under is breath, in a hurt voice**

No, but seriously, are we sure we should go with an extension of the name phpbb? It seems a bit of a mouthful to say phpBB{INSERT_NAME_HERE}, and phppp has, IMHO, too many p's.

instead of the latin letter "P" we could see the two last "P"s in phpPP as the greek letter "Rho" which looks exactly like "P". So you would pronounce it php RHO RHO ... yeah ...
