Find a new name for SMC

Postby FluXy » 04 Jan 2005 00:19

Stephane asked me if i could create a forum thread so here it is :wink:

If you have a good idea for a new name which fits to SMC you can post here or contact me someway.

- We don't need a complete new name.
- No long names like "The Smashing Mario-Agent vs his Clones".
- No more Clone, Super, or Mario.
- Should use Maryo or other Mario-like names.
- The Sourceforge name (smclone) doesn't matter.

How about "Ultra Fat Plumber and Co".

Or... "Crazy Mario and Slick in Mushroom Land". Crazy Mario(pronounced Marry-O) and Slick are two characters from the movie "A Bronx Tale"

or... "Belts too Loose" subtitle "A Plumber's Story"

or... "Pipe Dream"

or... "Super Barry-o"..."Super Gary-O" "Super Harry-O" etc.

Well, that's all I've got for now...

I think "Maryo" is still bad - most trademark dispute cases talk a lot about "potential for creating confusion in consumers", not "spelt/looks exactly the same"

I wouldn't be so worried about this except that your graphics look nearly identical. That and you have ripped mario graphics strewn about your webpage.

Zelda: The Dirty South has now just become the dirty south to avoid any trademark disputes, and we've barely begun coding at this point. Of coures this name is about as non-descript as you can get, and the only association I can make with it is to one or more rap artists, so we'll be changing the name as well.

But it would be a shame to get shut down because of some threats - after all, you won't be going to court to say "they can't do this!" unless you have $thousands to spend, so its not even a matter of can they do this, but would they... to which the answer is hopefully, no.

There was, once upon a time, a Zelda clone that got shut down... one of the NeHe projects I believe.
