What's your favorite name? If you choose other, please reply. Arrgh, it didn't let me put all the options :(

<edit> I just thought it would be nice if I made this into a sticky... </edit>

Edited by psoTFX : Threw in WASP option.

I voted JAP, cuz that seems clever to me. I would almost think that phpJAP would be better. ;)

The only problem I could see is the possible ethnic indication :|

WASP - Website Authoring Software for Php

i actually really like this (and not just because I thought it up). think about it... what is a portal? it's an easy way to make a kewl looking website. you just drop it in, set a few things, and you are up and running. so in essence we ARE making website authoring software.

i know wasp is already taken on sf - so just call it wasp-portal on sf.
i checked and wasp-portal.com.net.org are available too :D

WASP is already a common abbreviation in web design, it's the Web Standards Project, so it may be a cool abbreviation, but not a good idea to use it for anything involving web design :)

I like phpPP, just cuz of the obvious relation to phpBB.

Even though it took all my effort not to vote for Jay's php portal :D (thanks btw! hehe) I went for phpPP b/c of the relation to phpBB but there was one on the list that i really liked and that was:

phpHyperPortal or (PHPHP) for short :D

Weeell... It seem the name I proposed some time ago is most popular! /me is proud of himself :)

Also, the logo will be very similar, so it'll be very easy to identify with phpBB. And soon the forum will be addressed as a theBB and the portal as a thePP (say hi to theFinn guys! ;) )!

wasp wan't that and 80 rock band?
i think i just showed my age.
any way i like pBPortal but then again it kind of makes me hungry
so phppp but then again :? kind of makes me have to go to the bathroom
but a wasp would make a cool mascot.
i just can't wait for it to be done so i can use it (it not even started yet)
so let me be the first one to say when will it be done :p ( just kidding do kill me)

Voted for phpPP too, it's not that creative but it serves it's purpose.. It's easy to identify with phpBB which is REALLY imporant IMO.. Have to keep things simple for the users :D

Yes W.A.S.P was an 80's 'hair' band :) It stood for, IIRC, We All Smoke Pot.

And yes.. In the late 80's/early 90's I was a big heavy metal fan :D
