    The name 'DreamsCentral' sounds quite simple and I'm not sure if Jww likes it. 'MMCentral' sounds too official, as if it was a official forum. A name that includes something with 'Creativity' or 'Building, playing and sharing' would also be cool.

    It's up to Jww now.
    That's why I've said go straight for the jugular. I don't think subtle will be good enough. It has to be direct and to the point. Dreamscentral (DreamSentral) runs together quite nicely too.

  2. Thanks!

    Just putting this out there. Not saying what we are doing, however...

    I hope you all realize there is a really nice site ran by our good friend b-coli called Dreamsverse.

    Why does the Dream have to be plural!? It makes for such difficult play off words. Can't ever be worse than Demon's Souls though.

  8. Thanks!

    I honestly don't know if a name change would bring more users, it's sad to see this place so unactive,Dreamcentral I think would be a great name

    Journey Rebirth 2 was included in LBPC Community Spotlight Episode 120 9/13/13

    I think MM Central would be cool, but I also think maybe LBP Central should stay LBP Central. It shouldn't be something it is not. It was made for LBP, not for Dreams.

  13. Thanks!

    Another thought is one of you could create one of these new sites for Dreams... or just join Dreamsverse like most of you already have.

    Exactly, I think new forums for Dreams are better than changing a LBP forum to something it wasn't. I'm already on DreamsVerse, I don't visit it fairly often though. Need to check it out more often.

  17. Thanks!

    It's time for a new dawn my friend. LBPCentral shall rise again re-branded.

    I guarantee a lot of old users will return. (hi!)

    I've been giving this some thought and I see no reason you can't go all in and rebrand to DreamsCentral. That will give you a fighting chance when people search and it still actually represents what LBP was and still is.

  21. Thanks!

    I agree. Dreams Central, Dreamer Central or something along those lines. You could argue it's still related to LBP as in the intro they refer to planet earth as "the orb of dreamers" and LittleBigPlanet as a "dreamiverse".

    Go on, this community meant a lot to many of us, you can revive it =D

    LBP Central was always about LBP. I think Dreams should have it's own sites.

  24. Thanks!

    I understand where you are coming from. But there must be some mind of compromise.

    Sorry double posting because I'm a public menace. Is it possible to have two websites: "lbpcentral" and "dreamercentral" that users can access from the same account? That would be amazing.

    I have discovered 2 dreams fan sites so far and think there may be a 3rd out there lurking. I will back up JWW’s decision 100%. I would like to add my 2 cents though lol.

    Lbp central servers can stay on forever at a cost with lower traffic to none.

    Or

    Change the name and try to capture old and new members.

    Or

    Change the name and move everything here to the new site and have this address redirect people to the new site.

    Or

    Partner with the good folks of former LBN and archive everything here there and redirect to there.

    Or ask the people at dreamsverse to update there lbp section to just link this site

    Those are my thoughts,

    I am leaning to merging the content with dreamsverse and having a redirection. I mean if dreamsverse would change there lbp section to emulate the look and feel of both LBN and lbp central that would be dope. It is unfortunate they lost all there data. Those folks at lbn were an outstanding bunch and I miss them very much. Glad to see most have went to dreamsverse already

    There are more issues than one would realize on this. For one, given the amount of monthly traffic, I really don't see the point. Dreamsverse is more than adequate to move forward with Dreams. I will keep this running for some time, but at some point... there is no real point.

    True.. it could run cheaper somewhere else, but we would still have to update the software, redesign the site graphics and the upgrade database. Also the webserver needs upgraded along with other bits and bobs. A managed server would be much cheaper, but the amount of storage is an issue at some hosting sites. Currently bandwidth is not an issue..

    However, someone still has to do all that work. Update, rebrand, repurpose, rethink, manage and keep it running. ...I have other fish to fry and after long and considerable thought on the subject, I have decided to shut the doors at some point in time. I have spoken with the folks at Dreamsverse about porting all the data over, but all there felt sad about it, but it wasn't worth it in the long run.

    My biggest issue is my time... I really have none. Sad to say I am a older grownup that works quite a bit. It isn't so much the expense, but the time and for a very few visitors in a given month. LBP is 10 years old and at some point.. even the LBP servers will be offline.

    I was hoping this last contest would be a nice celebration of everything cool about LBP and this site that has been so near and dear to all of us. Please realize that this decision has not come lightly and keep pushing the decision off... Now if someone was interested in taking this all over and doing whatever has been suggested, please send me a PM. I just can't keep it going forever and really would rather usher in Dreams with a fresh start at a new site. I recommend Dreamsverse.

    At least that is where I am going. lol

    All I can say is thank you for everything from the bottom of my heart. The spotlight crew was one of the best times in my life and most memorable. It’s hard to let this go and I know this is not a decision that is taken lightly.

    Time is what I am struggling with right now as well and I am trying and struggling extremely hard to rearrange things to create My first level in lbp3 and last level in lbp.

    I’ve met some amazing people in this community and talk to one of em a lot and he is coming out of retirement as well to build one last one with me.

    Just to clarify, the data will not be transferred to another site?

    If anyone wants to touch base outside of here, hit me up on twitter anytime. I am not opposed to adding any of you to fb as well.

    I love everything about this community.
