New Forum Title?

Hi...

It seems that the forum title could use some work. How about some suggestions.

(Note...I do not expect attacks or crude remarks to be made.)

Thanks

Maybe just Fun & Games? I think the "Never-ending" part leads to confusion.

I think some clarification of exactly what type of posts you want in here is needed first as even that is very unclear to me.

The "Threads People Have Complained About" forum.

Along those lines, we probably also need a "Happy Birthday and YAMM forum".

In order to suggest a name (and I'd really like to) I need to understand exactly what's supposed to go here?

Specifically, what's a "never ending thread"?

My first guess was that a "never ending thread" was one with no real "topic of discussion", but rather, a blatant attempt to get a "stream of consciousness" going, resulting in a very long thread. "Who stays up this late" and "what are you thinking" definitely fall into this category.

However, if that's the definition of "never ending thread", what's "Mysterious beeping in house" doing in this new area? That's a thread with a very specific and clearly defined TOPIC of discussion!

So, is the definition of "never ending thread" simply post count above some threshold? What is the threshold? How would a thread starter know in advance if his/her thread would eventually reach that threshold? Would thread reaching the threshold (in any area) be automatically moved to this area?

I hope people understand my confusion on this.

As I have stated elsewhere, I don't think this issue rises to anywhere near a level where people should be getting all hurt and upset and leaving the forum over it, but I am confused by the specifics of the purpose of the new area.

The 'posts with no substance' forum.

But truthfully, I think that's pretty much was it is, but I guess we need a tasteful way to state it.

You know, some of you people are just amazing. I give you a chance at helping out and even ask not to use the thread as you just did.

Shocking for I would have though more out of some of you.

Totally amazing.
