Change Back to "Off Topic Topics"

Postby Truman on Sun Nov 12, 2006 1:04 am

I was formerly against "Caleb the Cruel" on this matter when this section was changed to "Social Lounge." I thought it a proper name. I did. But I did not know it would change twice afterward. First "Off Topic Topics." Then "Social Lounge." Then "The Romper Room." Then "The Water Cooler." Now "The Village Voice"? This isn't getting anywhere and we might as well call it "SPAM HERE."

This isn't professional to constantly change the name of a forum section. I haven't seen this happen anywhere but here, and I think if we change it back to "Off Topic Topics" again, everyone will recognize what purpose this section serves on the forum. Naming it a ridiculous name like "The Village Voice" is confusing, unrelated, and downright weird.

I vote "Off Topic Topics." Who's with me?

Yeah, you're right. Was that before or after "The Water Cooler"? I'll edit when I know.

Before.

Personally, I could care less. This forum will always be Off-Topic Topics in our hearts, the external name is unimportant.

Yes, but I'm thinking about the newbies, not just us. And on the contrary, I'm sure a lot of us would indeed like "Off Topic Topics" back... At least I know Caleb and I would.

This changing names business has gone too far. Now who wants to go to suggestions forum and file a complaint?

I think that name you proposed would just scare everyone away. Though maybe not as much as VTMarik's playground.

Since the current OT forum name is 'pending', this post is once again very relevant.
