KryptonSite: What's In A Name?

Here's a question for all of you out there....

KryptonSite started as (and still is) a fan site for The CW's Smallville. Over the years, it's expanded into a network of sites and the KryptonSite Forums now host discussion for not just Smallville. There are dedicated forums for shows like Heroes, The Vampire Diaries, Glee, Supernatural, Doctor Who and more.

Here's a question for those of you out there, regarding the other series (and the site network as a whole) - would you prefer a different name for the site network and for the forum to be housed elsewhere? Or should it stay as is while Smallville is still on the air?

Personally speaking, I sometimes wonder - even though there are a lot of people posting on the forums - if more people would post in the other forums if it wasn't "at that Smallville site." And "KryptonSite Network," while it does say "associated with KryptonSite," does kind of make you think of little green rocks.

KryptonSite as a name and a brand has worked so people know what kind of a site to expect (hopefully)... but would something more general work better for the network? (The Smallville site would, of course, stay as is.)

I will have to say, though, that finding the right alternative name could or would be an even bigger challenge.
