The new works represent a new generation of builder and projects. As mentioned before, this has analogy to car manufacturers adopting the same naming convention for their car models ...
Sure, and if you want to get even a trifling spare part such a windshield wiper you need to provide not only the car name/model but also the year of manufacture, more often than not the actual month of production, and nowadays also in some case the chassis number.
This is OK, because spare parts dealer are professionals in the field and have (private) databases and know how to search in them (and they simply refuse to even attempt a search without the needed identifying data).
Having the Billi-Bob builder and (as said MUCH worse than that) a "generic name" Billy-Bob project have the same name of the previous Billy-Bob builder and Billy-Bob project as being part of *something* for which the only form of support, knowledge and "previous art" is represented by the Internet, i.e. a mindboggingly vast, already terribly indexed and accessed by a "generic tool" such as an "all purpose Search Engine" like google is form of database is ALREADY (with "unique names") particularly inefficient and challenging.
Even searching for knowledge on the limitedly indexed (thanks to the past senseless rename of the domain) board through google (forget about the JOKE that the in-built search represents) is daunting.
Having (say) a good 3/4 to 4/5 (optimistic estimation) once the Billy-Bob's WILL become "public" and hopefully "popular" (initially expect between 499/500 and 999/1000) results being relative to ANOTHER, completely unrelated, Billy-Bob can be expected.
This is not smart, but more than that is one of the least user friendly way to manage information.
Of course if the objective is to make both the new Billy-Bob's and the old Billy-Bob's less easy to use and make related information and support/knowledge less accessible to both new and old users (and members of the board) this is a very good way.
