    Yes, it's was changed because C.A.R.S is still a project and also is a way of trying that google find it.

    If they want Google to find it they should open the forum for guest viewing :) Now all spiders are blocked.

    It's a development forum, so only who is in the project should be there, makes sense.

    Basically the community started a discussion about the name, finding it with search engines etc. and after throwing some suggestions around the name was changed. It won't necessarily be the final name of the game, the community gets a say in that at a later stage :)

    What Bram means is they need to open a single sub forum to guest viewing and then Google and co will be able to do their thing. Just a simple Public Updates Thread or so...

    Type Project CARS on Google and the seventh link down is the Project CARS - WMD Portal link

    So, it does return something, albeit not in the top spot on the page. Not sure why you are saying it doesn't return anything.

    Must have been updated in the last couple of days. But still a seventh position on Google is not what you want when that is your brand name.

    But as ReDi said its probably not the final name of the game.

    On top of that, they'll probably want to get loads of publicity closer to release date.

    And it also threw me off, as I thought this forum had been removed from RD. But nope, it just moved down the list. Hehe x3
