I'm still for phpPP, sounds almost as bad as phpBB which nicely links them together ;)

WASP is a name for a LOT of bands/projects/programs/scripts/etc, etc..

I agree with John (AbelaJohnB). Much simpler... :)

Yeah, but that won't fit on a logo.
You see, the reason that Wasp is best is because it gives the portal a personality, and allows it to have a mascot. It's a fact proven by time that a project with a personality creates a cause. That's why Linux is thriving - It has a personality, a cause, a "face". People increasingly choose it over windows because microsoft is faceless, something easily hateable. The same applies in the portal market, I mean, does PHP-nuke arouse as much passion in the heart of portal users as Linux does in the OS arena?

Which one? The one from Windows 9x/ME/2000 or the one from Windows XP or the one from Office(which isn't a Windows logo...)? :mrgreen:

The first one, with your face on the same dartboard. ;)
Anyway, I think it's time for a final name poll. I'll gather up all the options and put them together. :)

It is a perfectly normal word. If it had been suggested simply because it offends some people, then I would agree. If lots of people were offended, I would also agree. But as it is, I don't. Don't take it personally, that's just the way I feel.


Hey! don't be so serious...i wasn't. It doesn't offend me - i'm withe :) , maybe not anglo-saxon and not protestand, but anyway - i'm not offended. I just wanted to show that i don't like it, because it has to many meanings, and as BartVB already said, there are a lot of projects with this name.

Wow, I guess this whole web-based bulletin board thing just may replace Usenet some day. Look, we've already developed kooks. :)
