    I haven't the first clue. My username is so confusing.

    One of my recent communities, Blogging Friends, I have always thought of the blogging community as a really friendly community that helps one and other out even if the other has the same type of niche blog. So I figured Friends would be a good word to add :)

    buysell-browse.com implies browsing buysell classifieds ads posted online. A natural choice for the forum's content.

    My main website is Center Stage Sports. I wanted the site to sound legit and well respected. I think the name Center Stage Sports sounds real good. Makes it seem like we are the center of sports news.

    I was planning a forum devoted to freelance writing, but then I came across that not just writers but, designers, web developers and more work as freelancers so I made up the freelance board.

    Hmm... It can get pretty ironic. Sometimes I can't think a name for my own site(s), but other time I get paid to do that for other people. My proffered method is brainstorming, but sometimes, I just can't do it. Anyone else knows what that feels like haha?

    BB Stands for "Bulletin Board" which is another meaning of "forum", BB is a very common term in the forum world. So in full AdminBB stands for Admin BulletinBoard, which also means Admin Forum.

    @up: year+ old topic :)
    My site's name? CS stands for centrum szkoleniowe (Training Center) and Torun is city where we are located. http://cs-torun.pl
    Funny thing is most spiders index our page as related to Counter Strike (CS) which is little bit misleading.....

    Was looking for a domain web related and played Mortal Kombat earlier that day. Came up with Web Goro and it sounded good to me.
