That's right, we're soliciting potential names to re-name our awfully generic sounding World Affairs Board Pub. Use your imaginations, and think up something unique and creative! Any and all suggestions, whether relevant to the theme of the forum or not, are welcome, as well as feedback on the suggestions of other members.

Just off the topy of my head. Went to a funeral today, still have to eat dinner and then go to my Model Train Club meeting. Operating night where we have all kinds of trains running all over the place.

General Discussion (GEN DISC)

Gossip Room (GOS RM) ----- {just kidding}

The Round Table (RD TBL) ----- actually I sort of like that one, we can imagine ourselves as Knights of Arthur, King of the Generals -- or was it General of the Kings?

The Board Room (BRD RM)

I had intended to mention that I meant for the 'Pub' portion to remain while the 'World Affairs Board' portion would be changed. Everybody ought to already know they're at the World Affairs Board, so it's rather redundant and generic. Alternative titles not including 'Pub' are still welcome, but what have we got that could include it?

I used to read A. Bertram Chandler back in the day and he always used the phrase "C'mon in, this is Liberty Hall. spit on the mat and call the cat a bastard".
So I like Liberty Hall for a name.

P.S. he was a merchant marine officer and the last master of the HMS Melbourne before she was broken up.

Sir,I found the content of posts in World Affairs Board Pub Content is very wide,why not give it a name that means that we can chat here easily or we can place posts that we think isn't suitable in other plates。As for the word,I think you can get the more Appropriate name than me。

"Pub" implies that it's a place for all sorts of discussion. Mostly non-sense, but all kinds. :)

How about…..The Global Pub? Or the Everyday Pub.

Alternatively, to replace “Pub”, the suggestion I put forth is World Affairs Board Lounge.

Not really original, but a couple known bars; the drunken clam from family guy. The Winchester from Shawn of the dead.

I happened across the other day what everyone at work thought, sounded like a good name for a pub. I was doing some plumbing and mentioned on the radio that I couldn't fix a spout because of the rusty nipple it was attached to. Everyone thought it sounded original.

I have always been partial to the do-drop inn.

Merriam-Websters online dictionary defines PARLAY as "to increase or otherwise transform into something of much greater value". From my relatively short time as a member of the WorldAffairsBoard thats what seems to happen to most topics that are posted and discussed. So I would suggest either PARLAY or in deferrence to Irondukes suggestion above, the PARLAY PUB.
