  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    Is it time to rename this subforum Live Action, Rebels, Clone Wars, And Classics (LARCWAC)?

    Or maybe Live Action, Animation, And Classics (LAAAC)?

    Or just stick with what we have?

    I think the name "LACWAC" has become such a fixture that many people barely think of what it stands for.

    Even if it does sound a bit like a duck doing an insurance company commercial.

    LAAC would be pronounced how? "Lake"?

    LARCWAC might work, I dunno, but I think the name LACWAC will be around for awhile.

    LAAAC as in "lack".

    But I prefer LARCWAC, myself ("lark-whack").

    You know what we will need no matter what happens to the name of the forum?

    New tags. We need a "Rebels" tag.

    LARCWAC makes sense to me.

    Personally I think that we will soon need 3 sub forums.

    LARCWAC makes me think of LARPing, and LARPers frighten me.

    Maybe LACWRAC

    You realise how long the name will be if we add a letter or two every time a new animated show is created, right?

    Anyway, how come nobody wanted to insert a "D" for Detours? :p

    I didn't put an answer. This forum could be called the TV series subforum and I'm still going to call it LACWAC. It's ingrained in me now. Plus "LACWAC-y" rolls off the tongue. "LARCWAC-y" just... doesn't.

    TF.N is already operating under the illusion that there will ever be more than one forum in the Star Wars Television category, so this forum being anything other than a general TV forum is pretty much ridiculous anyway, from an organizational perspective. Why have a separate category for only one forum? Is it to quell the nerdrage of people who hate Star Wars TV media so much that they just can't bear to see it under the main category?

    That's why I suggested LAAAC as an alternative.

    I think you know the answer to that question.

    Sure it does. Like a "wacky lark".

    That sounds like you're talking about a "pettanko".

    I guess maybe the elongated "ar/ah" sound doesn't appeal to me. LACWAC has two flat "a" sounds.

    I see where you're coming from. This forum does nothing but lark about. This is an example of me just being used to a name. I suppose it really doesn't matter. I come here for the discussion and the people, not for the name. This place could be called Alcatraz, I'd still frequent here.

    At some point we'll just cover the entire keyboard, being sure to insert vowels between each letter or two to make some semblance of a pronounceable word.

    So much for that, guess we'll just have to settle for something generic like Star Wars Television. ;.;

    It was something like Star Wars Small Screen when I first joined. People discussed Young Indy and the Ewok Adventures.

    Why not just Star Wars Television? Make the whole thing the forum. No Star Wars Television -> LACWAC. Just Star Wars Television -> Star Wars Television.

    LACWAC was doomed from the start. Once TCW ends, isn't it a classic? And live action is on hold, perhaps indefinitely. Given the status of Live Action, I don't think it even deserves a place in the title. And Rebels is coming up, to ignore that is just silly. So either the forum name keeps changing LACWAC, LARCWAC, LARDWAC, and on and on.... OR SWT. Star Wars Television. Easy.

    Well, we have to at least call it, Star Wars and Television.

    If we're going to change our name, we might as well upgrade to badass. :cool:
