Hello again, folks!
The original starting date of War More Radio began back in December of 2011. However, the decision to begin the website took place in November around this time. It’s fitting because there are several small, but significant changes that will be taking place over the following weeks.
To say that this year was eventful is a major understatement. It’s the first major year, with a weekly podcast release schedule, for not just one but three podcasts! Crazy and awesome, but mostly crazy lol. Combine that with school projects, work and family. You can imagine how active these past few months have been.
Recently, as a part of a school project I had the opportunity to watch a film called: Terms and Conditions May Apply. Needless to say the film was very enlightening about internet privacy and avoiding pointless risks online.
I will go into greater detail on the Gaming Snowball Podcast (44), but lets just say it has opened my eyes to a degree.
As a result, I have decided that the site name will change after four years. There are several reasons beyond “just watching a film”. Which I will go into detail about on the podcast, but heres a couple brief explanations.
The original site name idea came from the concept of making fun of all the games that use War in their title. Warhammer, Warmachine, Warcraft, Warpath, etc. It was a fun little jab at all the podcasts that use an element of a game in their title. [Insert Noun]Hammer for example. The core aspect of “War and More Radio” was always looking at multiple systems and to provide alternative perspectives. I was tired of all the mono-game podcasts and wanted to provide “more”.
As time has passed, the name was eventually altered to shorten its length. Mostly to make it easier for people to type in the sites name. WarMoreRadio, also had a better flow to it vocally.
However, as time has passed. I feel like the name has lost some of its meaning. Also when you tell people to go “check out” War More Radio, it did a poor job of marketing what the site was about. Miniature wargaming, is still considered an obscure hobby by the general population. So the name could be more effective as a whole.
So after polling on Twitter and Facebook, I have had a ton of meaningful discussion on alternative names for the website.
I currently love the name: Miniature Mountain. I feel that it describes in greater detail what this site is all about. Miniature games and board games that include miniatures in them. The idea of a mountain of miniatures is a very symbolic of my hobby habits and podcasts. Let me know what you think? Do you agree/disagree? Leave your thoughts and opinions on the War More Radio Facebook group or on Twitter @ATT64.
The changes will take a while to happen, but I am trying to figure out how to create a re-direct for people who still type in warmoreradio
Here’s to another four years!
