Destructoid's Forum needs a new name, new identity, but still Dtoid


Like MTV2 but with people that watch it

Update: The forums will be relaunched as OuterHeavenForums.com using the more secured platform, but no additional changes will be made. The people like the forums as it is.

If you're a long-time reader of Destructoid you know our forums have almost nothing to do with our home page. They're sort of this crazy uncle that goes into tangents beyond the scope of the Destructoid home page perhaps best explained by The Bar. They're golden in their own way. This year I want to make it its own Destructoid Project by design, sort of like how Podtoid has its own Wiki and Universe. This idea has been called "Experimental" by Andy Dixon and "I don't get it" by Steven Hansen and "Let's call it Bionic Bubonic" by Jonathan Holmes.  

We want to talk it through before we move your cheese.  I'll give you the elevator pitch:

The general is idea is more different than Destructoid on purpose (as opposed to weird and why aren't the editors here etc) but still a part of this nutritious breakfast: all your posts remain intact, and I'm still your publisher and footing the hosting bill. Moderators who aren't Destructoid staff would become "staff" of that project, so they'd have more sovereignty and creative control as well as editorial opportunities of their own. That also gives me an excuse to upgrade us to the newest version of Vbulletin this week and we could then add features that are otherwise redundant to Destructoid's core activities. [nobody liked this idea]
