The Stage is an awful name. What was wrong with Entertainment?

Come up with something better for "Entertainment & Consumer Technology" then.

"Entertainment and Consumer Technology" seemed pretty good since it actually tells you what the board is about.

Having board names that are descriptive of their content and that won’t turn away newcomers?!?!? STOP THE MADNESS

If having a bit of "creativity" in board names -- which contain a description of the board contents just below the name -- turns away newcomers, then I don't want 'em here anyway!

Cutsey names are turn offs for a lot of people.

For the arcade I thought of a couple none really sound that great.

 

Press "A" to start

d1p's Battlegrounds

Spawn Point

The Recreation Room (I'd avoid this one because of the VR game)

Digital Concourse

"Spawn Point" actually doesn't suck :p 

 

Seriously, though, here are some of the top forums on the net...

Board names are descriptive of the expected content. It's almost like there's a formula that they follow to make the boards welcoming and garner new users without being offputting. But, hey, you're going to do what you want. :p

The warning and banning justifications just blow my freaking mind. The fuck is wrong with those mods?

 

They want to give everyone that true neogaf experience.

Wade, I’m all for creativity. But some of these names are the bad kind of creativity.

Then please suggest alternative ones that are not the old boring board names because the more people push for those, the more I won't even consider them :p

Are you asking us to engage in reverse psychology on you?

I agree that "The Stage" doesn't seem like a fitting name, since there's more than just stage theater there. :p If we don't want to just call it "Entertainment," how about something like:

 

"Tinseltown, Silicon Valley, and Hogwarts"

 

or

 

"Are You Not Entertained?!"

 

:mthinking:

so this is what it felt like to live under the soviet union 

 

For realsies. We went from, "If I get complaints, I'll change it," to, "The more complaints I get, the more they'll stay." That's how it was in the USSR.

I can't believe the complaints about the names. They're fun and/or cheeky. They're fitting.

fun doesnt mean good

But "fitting" does.

I dont think The Stage really fits that well. I can live with the other names but I hate that name.
