Looking for a new name for "Records-Eyepiece"...

Post by undef.de » 17 Jan 2014 23:07

As the name "Records-Eyepiece" was just a working title and i haven't renamed it since the first test versions, i think now it is time for a new meaningful name, which clearly identify it.

The name should match into Trackmania, Shootmania and maybe Questmania.

So everyone who has a suggestion, please post it here. I'm curious about your ideas! :pil

How about: Is'nt-It-A-Little-Late-To-Change-What-Has-Already-Become-A-Household-Name?

A little bit long... :lol:

But you're right, that was the same i was thinking a long time and that's also the reason why it wasn't changed already. But i really think the name is such stupid and does not match what it really is.

But if the others think the same, then i can let the name as it is. :thumbsup:

If you're planning on making this plugin also available for ShootMania (and later on QuestMania) the name might be problematic.
I think that when you just leave "Records" away and go for "Eyepiece", you don't loose the known name but it also fits with ShootMania.

Same Opinion as TheM. Especially because its mostly just called the "Eyepiece". No one writes the complete Name. Generaly I suggest you to use shorter Names for your Plugins. Just thinking about "Third-Party-Plugins-Up-To-Date" :D

Just leaving "records" in front of the name would be best I think. Completely changed name may confuse users ;)

If your suggestion is to let the name "untouched in fact" i think it's the best to let it as it is, because in Shootmania it displays "Records" too (TopShooter, TopHits...)...

Something like "Records Mania Manager" or just "Records Mania"

Mania as double sense : mania for maniaplanet and manialink for keep a sense with TMF ^^
And third mania could means your many many many options ;)
