Website name suggestions please

OK, now (assuming only) I was to build another website, either as a replacement for this one or another to run along side it.  


1: We would need a catchy name for it.  Have you got any suggestions?
2: What features would you like to see?  ( again I'm not a coder so some things might not be possible for me to include, I'd try though)  ;)

Your ideas will be much appreciated.

My thoughts-
Why do you need another site?
What is wrong with this one?
What is wrong with the name?
Will all content from here move to new site ?
You run the risk of loosing members whilst in transition period.

I know I speak a lot of cobblers most of the time but for once I'll try to be sensible :)

Why do you feel you need to have another site Mick? This one is spot on for me (remember I know nothing:) ). It could do with a few more members maybe to reflect a wider interest in different shots that are posted (I only do flowers or still stuff, I know that ticks some off), but it has all the ingrediants of some of the other bigger sites such as PR, which is crap IMO. Flickr....got a few on there but it does my head in.

Wouldn't worry too much Mick it's not broke so it doesn't need fixing :)

Massive plus side for this site is over the last few weeks unable to take any pictures because of ill health I have been able to play in your wonderful Arcade.......Great

 :-[  Sorry didn't word my last post too well.  This site is going nowhere.  ;)

1: The website name question was just for my own interest.  I remember how hard it was to come up with something when I built this place, and just wondered how easy it would be for you guys to come up with something.  

2: The reason I asked about the features is the software used for this site has newer versions being released shortly.  The new versions of the forum software is in beta stage as is the coppermine gallery software.   When these are released fully the old versions will no longer be supported.  This would be a great time to add features if possible.   This I can assure you won't be happening until it really has to for security reasons.

photosite.com or .co.uk do not appear to have been used yet, they are not very catchy but Photosite Forum and Photosite Gallery  convey the meaning well.

As for boosting membership, is there a facebook group/flickr/twitter page for the site, or even advertise by banner of somehwere like facebook? Admin have you looked at googles webmaster tools, these are great for getting your site ranked higher on their searches?
