i'm embarrassed to ask.... but.... 1 Year ago Karma: 31
I, phishbon3s, have a question that has been plaguing me for years since A Single Spark leveled up into Dokuga.

I stand (metaphorically) here and beseech the glorious Mods to grant me the wisdom of this lowly one burning question.

(which I imagine to be something similar to asking Deep Thought the answer to life, universe and everything in Hitchhiker's Guide)

.....

How did Dokuga get its name?


If my lovely mods will grant me a few follow-up questions:
What does it mean?
Am I the only one who doesn't know?

I forget the whole story but I'm fairly certain that Dokuga was a yahoo group during the time that spark was alive and well. When spark was fixing to go inactive the mods of the dokuga group offered to take over. If my memory is right the rest as they say is history. Course im sure ive glossed over most of the facts and one of our lovely mods will probably come in and fill in/correct me. Hope this helps a little!

The word "Dokuga" does have a meaning, but I'll be darned if I can remember what it was. I believe that Miss Kagura & Demonlordlover came up with it when they started the Yahoo!Group. A Single Spark was still up and running when Miss Kagura started this website, though. It wasn't until later that 'Spark went down & Miss K offered to host the 'Spark archive here. ~Winter~ - the owner of A Single Spark - graciously allowed Miss K to roll it into Dokuga as a separate archive.

I'll check with my sources to see if I can find out what the name means... but it might take a while, since I'm at work.

According to a few websites, the word dokuga is roughly translated to poison, so it kinda made sense to have Dokuga as the name of this website, since Fluffy-sama has poison claws. *shrugs*

Yup, afaik doku is Japanese for poison. My dictionary translates dokuga to poison fang, so I'm pretty sure it's an allusion to Sesshoumaru / his abilities.

I also would like to apologize for the long over due thank you. The puishys little spawns have been keeping her quite busy. (Hugh understatement, but I digress)

Yep, I remember when everything was set up. Demonlordlover chose the name, saying it meant "poison fang" as a reference to His Lordship's poison claws and sword-carrying combo.
