Why a new name bitlanders?

In my last article i introduce Film Annex whom i consider a  phenomenal social media site that started to pay its members "bitcoin" then after a few weeks the name was changed to BITLANDERS . I was surprised to know , it was early in the morning  when i found out because i cannot login on my account using FILM ANNEX . so i asked my self  Why a new name bitlanders ?

What comes to my mind ?

  •  Film Annex had been sold out and needs a new name - i tried to search the domain name and owner


The owner had not changed so maybe its really just the named and it probably was not sold out. Since i am  an active member for  more than a month so i did not see any changes, except that there were questions on my mind that are not answered until now.   

  • It came to mind that probably the reason for the change of name was that  " film annex" the former name was probably more related to film industry which was way back started a long time ago.  The new name is needed to give it a new image and paying members in "bitcoin" is a new image and a motivation  for the  company.  This is my guess " Why a new name bitlanders?"                                                                                                      

  • It also came to mind was about regulations. There is a pending regulation in New York city where "bitlanders" is having its office. The regulation is about  " those who have business about bitcoins, will have to register" so bitlanders is now separated with film annex. 

    I have posted this article in view that there was no one explaining " why a new name bitlanders". Maybe others wont mind them as long as there's no changes as with film annex.  For me any changes, new polices or features are subject to questions, inquiry and need answers just like "why a new name bitlanders"


    So the name is not only my concerned here, its also the system within the "bitlanders" its not clear who are the admins, what is the organization structure within the site ( if you have questions whom to approach), the scoring system is not clear ( though i perceived - they cannot quantify it). There are some issues inside that are not addressed.  I do believe if you have a public site then its mandatory to hear issues and addressed on it or else there will be a problem.
