If you want to stick with "Lithium" as our first word, then how about "Lithium Dreams".  I know Pheld and Rit would have a field day making a layout with that name.

The problem with pulling a name out of thin air is so difficult because there are just too many words.  If we were to agree on a theme we would have an easier time coming up with a name.  Which brings up the question, do we even want a theme?

I thought that we determined that we didn't.

From how I see it, we don't need a theme. But I'm leaving it up to you guys to decide. And again, if we are going for a theme, it's going to have to be a good one.

"Lithium Dreams" is better than AMGReviews, so why not.

You know what? LithuimDreams is quite a good name, i'd vote for it. Also there isn't a anime site (or any site matter of fact) called lithiumdreams.

The only reference i could find about lithium dreams is that there is a DJ named that.


Thanks to DarkKanti for the Sig!

Lithium Dreams is a very good name. It's creative and doesn't connect you directly to anime. Plus, AMG=boring.

Because I can

First time I read "AMGReviews" I thought it was some hokey Ah! My Goddess fansite.

My first thought was "Oh, All Music Guide has a review division.

All right, I think that's enough, get on topic or get your post deleted.

So you guys do Anime, Music and Game reviews, but not manga anymore? And the Site is named AMG Reviews? Why not leave it as such?

Talk about complicating things. Changing the site name = bad idea, you already have low traffic because of all the changes you made during the past few months. LEAVE YOUR SITE ALONE! Just add more content!

Yeah, we learned our lesson. But this is something that MUST be done, in fact it is the ONLY time to do it before we accumulate a large following (if ever). We did a lot of bouncing and finally we've found our middle ground: a comfortable engine (Wordpress), a comfortable staff (somewhat), and comfortable concepts. Now we just need that comfortable name.

As for the content, there's a lot "returning". New content is pretty rare as the staff is scattered, tired, lazy, and confused.

Quote from: Tamashii
scattered
Noone ever shows up for our rare staff meetings.
We have staff meetings?

Quote from: Tamashii
tired
We're a bunch of insomniacs.
Damn straight

Quote from: Tamashii
lazy
We're Americans. (with the exception of TW who is not lazy)
Germans are very productive. Too bad they're all beer guzzling nazi's! (I jest, for I am German as well. Just not aus Deutschland

Quote from: Tamashii
confused
The frequent power struggles, sudden changes, and way in which things get done tend to confuse people...
Blah blah. Bi-monthly is nothing. You should see me argue with my parents.

I'm not picking on anybody, I'm just telling everyone why we're such if they don't already know. That being said, we need to work on a few things besides our new name. Probably the most important is to get us (most of us) to stop being lazy.

Good luck. I've got a job and school and asshole parents. I have a right to be lazy most of the time. I do what I can.
