Right now our chat room's name is just Ebooks. I feel there is something better we could name our chat room. What name could we use?
While I like (and upvoted) Chad's suggestion of The Prologue, considering the fact that chat is part of the long tail of things you learn about after getting started on the main site rather than what you get up front, I thought maybe The Epilogue would be more appropriate. For some reason that didn't have the right ring to it*, but the more common parlance seems to fit the bill:
Alternatively, quirky variants such as Appendix E might fit the bill just as well.
* R.I.P. ongoing discussion.
The Codex [insert filler text here ;)]
The Bitwise Press-Room
One consideration in evaluating names for the main chat room of an SE site is that there are several places where the name will be auto inserted by the system. The context of these substitutions will vary a lit but it is best not to bee too cryptic and to include some hint that the place might be a chat room it case that is not clear from context. One example is comments where you can include shorthand links like this:
This comment thread has digressed, perhaps we could talk about this in [chat].
Something like 'The Lobby' or 'The Reading Room' will substitute well while something generic like 'E-Book Enthusists' or 'Digital Press' might not fare so well.
My vote is for Digital Press.
As a riff on both Grant Palin's answer (which I like) and Anthon's quip that you shouldn't chat in a library, I give you:
Just for kicks,
How about: ebook enthusiasts
How about using: Digital Books
How about using: The Open Book
'The Reading Room' would be my suggestion
E-berry (word and sound play) E-Library
- Electronic book readers?
- Digital Read?
- Go eBook Save Paper?
