    Element 79 and Wolves of Warcraft are both very clever! Wolves is intuitive as well, while Element 79 is not.

    Yeah, I'd say the tagline is pretty important for that one

    I like the word-play of "Precious Mettle" -- gold is one of the most prominent example of a precious metal, but mettle is the ability to face challenges with good spirit; an important aspect of WoW goblineering, especially at the precipice of a new expansion.

    I love the evocative names like Wolves of Warcraft, and I really like the cleverness of Element 79 and Precious Mettle.

    But when I think of podcasts, I think of google searches and short and simple names that make the podcast function immediately clear. So...GoldCast got my vote for the sake of practicality and drawing listeners in who might not even know about this site.

    @Sterling - not that you have anything else to do (cough), but at some point it'd be great to add @Selltacular's blog to the list highlighted at the top of our site (and delete a couple there that have gone inactive).

    Come to think of it, I'd also vote for Precious Mettle. I wish the poll allowed for multiple entries!

    Indeed. Put yourself in the shoes of someone that comes across a comment like "I heard them talk about this on XYZ".

    Element 79 gives no indication we're talking about a podcast, let alone one discussing gold making. Perhaps adding "Podcast" to the name would do the trick though.

    "I heard about this on the Precious Meddle Podcast". Seems more intuitive?

    Or just have it link to a thread with blogs in it. The rate at which blogs go active/inactive is dizzying.

    Well, there are (or will be once @Selltacular gets his poll up) 3 opportunities to vote...

    I'm holding off voting for now in case @Sterling 's idea of adding Podcast to the name is taken on as that would influence my decision but i am kind drawn to GoldCast atm for the reason @Caitlyn mentioned. It's simple and obvious so self explanatory to people looking for it both who have heard of it and more specifically for people just looking for a gold making podcast who don't really know what their looking for. In the later regard specifically the others are a bit too clever.
