I never usually read the header at the top of the page but I just noticed it reads WakeSpace and not WakeWorld. Did I just never see this before or is it a recent change? I want my WakeWorld back!!!

Go to - it takes you to the discussion board here. I saw some sort of ad from Boarders Paradise saying Coming Soon... I just can't remember where I saw it.

Perhaps it's an attempt to "get hip" by jumping on the myspace sound alike band wagon.

Seem like if we wanted a site like myspace we'd... I don't know... go to myspace. What's next? Friends lists, vanity pages, viral marketing?

Wakeworld was the perfect name, I would rock the sticker on my truck if I had one and im very picky about what I put on, its usually almost all one of a kind stickers, but wakespace HELL NO!!!

As many of you know, we are currently redesigning WakeWorld. Part of the redesign plan includes renaming and moving our discussion board to a new community website with many other features such as the ability for users to set up their own "space" and upload pictures and video. The name we selected for this is WakeSpace. We procured the domain name a year ago when we started planning.

In order to begin this transition, we renamed this discussion board WakeSpace. We are marketing and advertising this board by that name and we are using the domain name in order to direct viewers to this board. In the coming months, we will transition to the website, described above. We know that some of you find the name change unsettling but we have sound business and legal reasons for starting this transition now, including building name recognition and goodwill for the WakeSpace tradename.

Some of you noticed a similar website that might be under construction. We will not comment on that site. We will state that WakeWorld’s plan to restructure its website and rename its discussion board was long in the making.

Don't fear the change because we will make it as seamless as possible and you will not lose out on anything! So continue to enjoy your WakeSpace!

So Dave, what does this do for wakeworld? Is wakespace an addition to wakeworld??
Old     (jon4pres)      Join Date: May 2004       10-26-2006, 12:39 PM Reply   
I dont get why it requires a change in name.

I would love to continue advertising for you if you would send me a couple of wakespace stickers to replace the wakeworld ones that I have on my truck and boat.

Legal reasons? Is someone challenging the name WakeWorld? I guess claiming to own the world of wake could be unsettling for some.

Oh, and I'd like different set of smilies while yer at it.

WakeWorld will be getting a facelift, but it's not going anywhere and it's not getting a name change. Don't read too much into this. It's simply an effort to upgrade WakeWorld and recreate the discussion board/community into something even better. I know what y'all like and I'm bringing it to you!

I am sure you know what we like but just so that I can get it off my chest. Please do not add avitars, signatures and a bunch of other crap that make it impossible to find the actual post.

See, I told you I know what you like. There is no way in hell I'd add all that garbage. If anything, it will be even more streamlined than it is now. If I've learned anything from our readers, it's that utility is king!

I think it's a great idea Dave! Although, with WakeSpace & MySpace I'll never get anything done! HA!

Keep up the good work Dave. WakeWorld is the best site out there, and I am sure that it will only get better with these changes.

* How's that for a$$ kissing. Dave - Now can I get one of the first Wakespace t-shirts and stickers, or do I have to beat Umali's post count?

Thanks bud!

More clarity please, so we will go to wakespace for our discussion needs and continue coming to wakeworld for other wake related info am I getting that right?

Im smelling double advertising revenue, and that sounds like something David and crew deserve.

Change scares me too, keep us updated.

Again, you have nothing to worry about. There will be no change in advertising since we already have advertising on the discussion board and the main section of WakeWorld. The sites will still be closely tied together. Other than added features, better content and more interaction, you shouldn't notice much change.

DW said Y'all!

Except he spelt it wrong. It's ya'll, for all you bumpkins in Ramona, CA.
Old     (hal2814)      Join Date: Feb 2006       10-27-2006, 6:46 AM Reply   
No, it is spelled y'all. Y'all is a contraction for "you all." There is no "a" in "you." Spelling it ya'll doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Shakespeare used the word from time to time. Back then it was a perfectly acceptable contraction just like "can't" is today but nowadays it's mostly relegated to the South and even then primarily when speaking, not writing. In my opinion, it's far better than the Northern equivalent: yous guys.

Am I just not explaining this right or what??? WakeWorld isn't going anywhere!!! WakeSpace will be the name of the new "community" website that will go hand in hand with WakeWorld. We simply renamed the current "community" portion of our website to WakeSpace to begin the transition.

Sit there and do nothing. This requires no action on your part!!

Actually, most users will have to move out of state and, in most cases, not only will you have to change your user name, but you'll also have to change your legal name and your mother's maiden name! Passwords will no longer be used because you'll be required to buy one of those retina scanners and hook it up to your computer. We're serious about security here at WakeWorld!

WakeWorld AND it's sister site, WakeSpace!

how come it is never called it's "brother" site? or it's "brother" company? I think this needs to be investigated.

Luke we also do hand geomatry readers, card access systems, covert cameras, and any other kind of security product that you would want to keep wake space or your space safer. Later, Mike
