      This website will be renamed in the near future. I’m not exactly sure when – but, my guess is around a month from now.
      Here’s the background:
      This isn’t actually my website. It belongs to a young man; Jouke Koning, who has been nice enough to let me “camp out here” while he has been working on his own Sierragamers.com website.
      I’ve bought a few URLs, and will pick one of them, unless someone has a better idea.
      They are:
      SIERRAFAN.COM SIERRASDAD.COM SIERRAKEN.COM WIZARDANDPRINCESS.COM
      Let me know your favorite!

      Sierrafan.com looks/sounds great. When will Jouke’s site be ready?

      Jouke says it’s ready now – I haven’t seen it so I have no way of knowing…

      (re: Quick Opinion Poll) I’m going to tie sierrafan.com by voting for sierraken.com. (This sentence is now outdated, see below.)
      Then again, sierraken.com sounds more like a personal site about Ken Williams, so sierrafan.com is OK. But, Ken Williams is a little bit more than a fan although the users are fans, except for family members who also happen to be users… umm….
      sierraken.com or sierrafan.com?
      Then again, wizardandprincess.com is slightly understated and doesn’t let the viewer know what to expect (which can be a plus). But who’s the wizard and who’s the princess? Does that get centric away from it being about fans and memories? sierraken.com emphasizes that it’s more than just your typical sierrafan.com website, but it is supposed to be a fan website… so…
      Mike Belisle contradicts his earlier statement and votes for wizardandprincess.com. He likes that its meaning is understated while still relevant to Sierra.

      (re: re: Quick Opinion Poll) Here’s some ancient Sierra trivia:
      The name wizardandprincess.com comes from one of the very first games Roberta and I did – The Wizard and The Princess.
      When Steve Levy wrote his book Hackers, much of which is about Roberta, I and Sierra, he named the chapter where he introduces Roberta and I “The Wizard and The Princess”. I can’t speak for Steve, but my assumption at the time was that he was referring to my programming skills (I was a techno-geek), and Roberta’s ability to write fantasy stories.
      For a while, the name stuck. Roberta and I had custom license plates (mine with Wizard, and hers with Princess).
      I’m not endorsing this as the name for the website – I still haven’t decided which name I like best. Maybe sierrafan.com, mostly because it’s the shortest.
      Currently, my plan is to point all of the names at this website, and let people call it whatever they want…
      -Ken W
      PS Roberta said her preference was sierrafans.com (she said I should add an ‘s’ to fan

      (re: Quick Opinion Poll) wizardandpricess.com is fabulous!!! Really, it reflects everything this site is supposed to be about, though actually I am not quite cetrain what exactly that is… Anyway, the reference to an early game is an extremely good idea and at the same time it is an allusion to Roberta and You, brilliant! And last but not least it somehow fits well with the famous KQ scenario, which makes me get nostagic right away!

      the trivia about the wizard and the princess is cool, though!

      (re: re: re: Quick Opinion Poll) I agree with Roberta on sierrafans.com. It would make it easy for people to find & the addy kinda tells you what the website is about.

      Just leave them all pointing to the website. Every user will use his preferrable domain-name; and only it, because cookies are domain-name dependant, means that you need to re-log-on through every domain-name to get an identifiying cookie.
