PostSubject: IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!   Tue Aug 02, 2016 4:27 pm

Attention, members of Jurassic Park Portal!

After discussing and planning with our fellow staff, we have decided to rebrand our forum and social media outlets to a new name! The decided name is...Jurassic Mainframe! While the URL for the moment stays the same, we are contacting the founder of this website (Pokesaurus) to request a change. An email from Forumotion has been sent to all members, so please check your inboxes! We thank you for your patience as we undergo our renovations.

-Jurassic Mainframe Staff

No offense, but shouldn't this have been voted upon by everybody instead of just the staff? It's just that I really believe that a change-the name change-was too big for just the staff and that everybody should of have some form of a say.

At the very least, we should have had a naming contest where the member submit ideas for a new name and the staff picked what they considered the best one.

There are a couple factors, and several other names were put forth, but a lot depends on what is available on all media. For example, im not against this idea of voting on a different name, but there was consideration for the name JP Universe. However, Facebook and Twitter pages already exist so we couldn't change the social media accounts to reflect the new name. As for this, I'm sorry if it rubs you the wrong way, but moving forward we are looking to get the community much more involved in different ways.

It would be kinda difficult to run a contest if the names selected were already chosen. Of course you can take over a certain name and handle if the winning one was already taken but Twitter can drag their feet on stuff like that.
