Future Plans & Ideas, Name Change? Features? Open Discussion

29 July 2018 - 04:07 AM

This thread is intended as a fully open discussion for ideas and suggestions on the future of the site! Please comment!

 

Firstly, I'd like to put some things out that relate to the software the site runs on, it is out of date once again and we are past due for an update.

 

However the update has some problems:

  • It only officially supports one name and one url (example: www.fansub.tv) and currently we use two (www.fansub.tv and maikuando.tv).
    The name 'Fansub' obviously relates to anime fansubs, and associates us with piracy, sadly.
    'Maiku Ando's Anime' i guess is still OK but I feel using that would feel wrong, like I was just folding Fansub into my site and it would disrespect the history.
    An entirely new name, that we can make into something totally different.
  • Most of the old site (Fansub and Maikuando.tv) just wont work with the new software, the old code written back then by Daft and me is just too old now. This means the DDLs would go.

And is has some good points too:

  • More Secure - It is still being updated and patched etc.
  • SSO / Single Sign-On for the Wordpress Blogs - The new software apparently finally supports wordpress integration (how long have we had this issue!)

 

Therefore, Id like to ask for any ideas and suggestions (this is truly open) but also I'd like to ask:

  1. Should we change our name? Ideas? Suggestions?
  2.  Any ideas to revive the site / get more activity?
