At the risk of being given the world and then demanding a gold frame around it, every time I see the 'Video Games' subforum name, it doesn't feel right. The other subforum names have set a different standard.

My suggestion would be 'Ones and Zeroes.'

Everything else is from the first person using a personal pronoun: "my opinion", "my own invention", "I must share", etc. Therefore:

  • Leeeeeeeeerooyyyyyyyy Jennnnnnnnkinsssssssss
  • I'm commander Shepard and this is my favorite forum on The Den
  • I'm in ur base killin ur d00ds
  • I never asked for this

Number two is sadly too long, so I vote for number four.

2 and four are right out.

Can't be based on a game that no one is going to give a shit about in 10 years, and it has to actually convey the what the forum is about.

"In the trenches"?
"Ones and Zeroes" seems to be back on the table

Do people give a shit about it now? Anyway, I reject the notion that time can take my crappy memes away from me. Second point I agree with, and I'll add that it should also be vaguely of the form of the other boards - it should be a short phrase, first word preferably starting with I.

That said, I don't really have any ideas at the moment.

I'm not sure who actually performed the rename, but thanks.

It's good that I can have a thread to sperg about vidjya games I'm playing without people complaining that no one cares and I'm derailing the one video game thread. I do appreciate a place where I can do that without getting on anyone else's tits.

I feel like I should get what the joke is about the new name, but I just can't seem to puzzle it out.

People asked for a forum, fbmf gave us one. Then people asked for a rename, so he is making fun us for not being satisfied.

Which is complete bullshit, because asking for a rename is perfectly valid provided anyone could come up with a rename.

And now the video game forum is named so that literally no one who hasn't gone inside and read the threads will ever know what it means.

That's half true. You wouldn't know by looking at the title, but there is this caption immediately below the title:

"Discussions and debates about video games"

Okay, so then it's not an uber obscure video game reference? That's good, 'cos I was driving myself mad by wracking my mindbrains for what it might mean.

I can see the description "Discussions and debates about video games". That lets me know what the sub-forum is all about.

Good enough.

I'm happy since now the video game discussions are parsed out so that I don't have to follow one ginormous thread for the possible 5% of topics that may interest me. I had given up and just marked all threads as read rather than wading through ye olde videogame thread.

Huh, I thought it was a reference to computer mice and browser cookies.

It works on a couple levels.
