Yeha I too have been wondering when the new nbame change is coming. I would like to update all my links right away even though I am sure you will have redirecting links pointing to the new site in place.  
You can call me

I think it's okay for me to say this.  We have recorded a podcast which announces the new name and also gives a brief retrospective on Planet GameCube.  The podcast features Windy, Dan, TYP, and myself (in my first time hosting).  This episode will be posted the night before the new site launches and will be the first announcement of the name.  If you want to be one of the first to hear the new name, go ahead and subscribe to Radio Free Nintendo on iTunes to make sure you will be among the first to get this special episode.

Timing?  Mid-to-late part of this week.

Will we still be able to get here with the same address as usual?  I mean at least until people get used to the new one, which then you will have to use the new name?

That's why we have the forums.  You can't expect to keep the lid on this can of worms for long.  
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!

Wait, does this mean you don't know the new name either?

I assumed all staff members were in the loop.

I expect that the old name will forward to the new name and one day, we'll just navigate in and be here, right?

They'll throw some sort of e-switch in a server room somewhere and then the brank-spanking-new site address will point to the right server.

Oh, and planetgamecube.com will also point to the new server for a while after the launch. Listening to podcasts after the annoucement has its benefits.

Patience, people!

EDIT: I just pinged the new server. I said "AHOY" and it said "AHOY" back. You read it, you can't un-read it!

Its not talking to me on any other ports so it must be a really secret server.

DOUBLE EDIT: WHOIS is your friend. Anyone with half a clue about how the internet is built can use it to find out information about a given domain name...

Hopefully it launches with the first Wii reviews.

That was cool.  I just happened to try reloading the main page as the switch was happening.  It didn't resolve, and I got a little thrill.  "It's happening now!"  I thought.  Then, a bit later, there it was, all white and blue.

The new look is pretty cool, although since I really only visit the forums anyway it doesn't really matter what the main page looks like to me.  It's groovy though.

Time to update the forums =D
