    Info NZBDrone to become Sonarr

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    First off, we want to thank everyone for their input into our new name, we ended up with over 800 suggestions, which included some really great suggestions as well as some NSFW and some hilarious ones (don't worry we'll be sharing all of them with you). Again thank you for your input, it was invaluable.

    I'd also like to thank... just kidding, this isn't an awards show.
    It took us a long time to decide on a name and the moral of the story is name things is hard, extremely hard, specially when it is something you care so deeply about.


    Decision Criteria



    • Short and sweet - We aimed for 2 syllables, but would have accepted 3 if we found a perfect name
    • Simple to understand (staying away from things like "nzb") I'm sure many of you tried to explain NzbDrone to friends and family, it was always a chore to get them interested for me because I'd spend half the time explaining what an nzb is and never got to talk about what it actually did.
    • Googleability, we wanted a name that was going to get us in the top 3 results without much trouble
    • Domain name - we wanted something short to type and easy to remember
    • Relevance - This wasn't high on our list, but we did try to find a name that was relevant to what drone does



    The Decision


    After reading all 800+ names multiple times and tossing our own names into the ring, we went through several rounds of eliminations. Once we settled on a few possible names we would ask our close friends and family what they thought of each name and used their feedback to tweak names further.
    We made the final decision yesterday around noon, and decided Sonarr is going to be NzbDrone's new name. It was the first name that everyone really liked off the bat.


    Why Sonarr?
    It comes from sonar
    ,

    it's a way for us to see into total darkness and discover what's out there.



    We are also changing our old tag line "cut the cord" to "Dive in." to be more in line with the ocean theme. The extra 'r' is there to help with domain, and searchability. also all the cool kids are doing it.


    Next Steps


    We couldn't wait to tell the you guys about the name change so naturally we haven't had time to actually re-brand anything yet. But over time you will see the following changes taking effect


    • All of our web properties *.nzbdrone.com domain and sub domains will start to automatically redirect to sonarr.tv
    • References to NzbDrone will start being replaced with Sonarr
    • As part of this migration all of our web properties will also be moving to HTTPS for improved security and privacy.

    Been using this for a while. Seriously kicks the arse out of Sick Beard.

    Stupid name to change to though.

    I find that sickbeard is still better.

    Things like backlog dont exist in nzbdrone (sonarr) unless im missing something.

    Also i found if a download fails and it found an nzb it wouldnt look for the download again unless i did it manually

    Isn't backlog the same as Wanted - Search all missing?

    I was running Sickbeard for years and when I swapped over to this it found quite a lot of stuff that SB had always missed which is good.

    Haven't had any issues at all with SB so until I have reason to, I'll stick with it. Heard a lot of good things about NZBDrone (Sonarr) previously though.

    There is a similar function to backlog. And I find drone finds far more episodes that sickbeard did.

    This - sickbeard used to miss a load of stuff that nzbdrone picks up, is why I swapped over
