Possibly more PC in these sensitive times ?
“Lounge”. How simply ghastly.
“Sitting Room” - if you really must.
Interesting. Mine is a “Living Room”
I think padded cell is probably a bit past it’s best before date, so a change in name has been overdue. It’s Naim’s forum and “Lounge” seems fine to me.
Ours is a ‘lounge’…always has been…
The ‘renaim’ seems appropriate to me…
I thought it was more an instruction than a name for the room.
I quite like it. ‘Time out’ would have been my suggestion, although that is perhaps a bit like ‘naughty step’.
Richard Dane, ‘Lounge’ lacks the gravitas of ‘Drawing Room’. The latter would be more appropriate for a Naim forum, IMO..
Works as a trim level on Fiat cars so why not here.
I recall a request to change the name some time ago but it stayed, but with mental health issues rising since the pandemic and more awareness of such I think the new name is a sensible change and far more sensitive.
The old name suggested all posts were crazy/zany/anything goes when in reality we discuss a broad range of topics from utterly trivial to thought provoking.
seems to me, a little Bourgeoisie perhaps…
The only caveat is that some sites have a hidden ‘lounge’ area for valued/experienced/longstanding members not visible to all posters, but anything like that here (beta testing aside as it’s essentially opt in) would be divisive in my view.
Very sorry chaps… I think I’m in the wrong room.
Can someone tell me where the padded cell is
I see what you’re saying, but I do think we ought to petition @Richard.Dane to introduce, per @BruceW, above, a “Naughty Step” fifth forum room, which would feature those censored posts, and which would surely provide much mirth and entertainment for the privileged few entitled to access.
Or am I just being naughty?
It would be great to have an area where we could discuss controversial or silly topics but the forum is a corporate one and we have to adhere to their rules and standards - there is already a lot of latitude and I suspect RD could do without another area to moderate!
Excellent. As someone with a close relative who is still under section after 15 years, it always rankled.
lounge ? At least it doesn’t have a “trigger warning” on it yet. The way things are going with the current trend it can’t be far off.
I assume the posting rules remain the same as before.
