  1. I don't think it would be out of place for all members to show Julio an OK sign for the name change. It must have been hard for him to decide to do this and it's really a trick name and will catch on fast. Great work and good luck!!!

    the name totally fits this place. in my view, this place was more like for gaming with the name '3dspotlight', but now focuses more on the pc/hardware side with the name 'techspot'. i think the idea of changing the name has been on julio's mind for quite a while, and i'm glad to see it finally implemented. :grinthumb

    I definitely had the idea on my head for a long time, however we needed a really good name... I always thought of TechSpot however it was owned by IDG, finally I got them to sell it to me :)

    The new name is OK I suppose, I see why you have changed it - the broader scope of the new name.

    I think its a good change, and better shows the broader scope of this site. There is the danger of the loss of name recoqnition during the change over, as some who knew the 3DS name, may not associate the new name. But with enough publisty, I think most will return.

    Truthfully, I hadn't noticed until I saw a post about it, I think it was day before yesterday. I like it though, it's quite a catchy name.

    It's still the same site with the same great forum and the same great content with the same great people that run it.

    I think the new name better suits the place.. But don't "get too big for your britches".. hehe!

    Should catch on a bit easier due to the likes of "Gamespot"

    another vote for Techspot here, although as long as my shortcuts and favourites to 3dspotlight work, I will continue to use them. I feel also that the new name does reflect the content fo the site - anything 'techy' really eh?

    keep up the good work 3DS (or should that be TS):grinthumb

    This was why I tried to run a poll the other day - to find out what people thought of the new name.

    After a week or so now Im used to it. I guess I liked "3DSpotlight" alot but Techspot better suits the site. We dont just talk about 3D technologies.

    Would be as waste of a poll though ;)

    Ironically 3dspotlight seems to be working better then TechSpot. I still think the name change is for the better.:)
