Gents and Ladies,

During a correlation meeting, the gameroom staff all agreed that the current name of the repository of coming Mafia games, has a rather unfortunate abbreviation.
We need a new name that is more suitable.

This thread is for nomination of candidate names and a poll will be created in the gameroom where a final candidate will become the official new name of this sub forum by popular vote.

Nominate away fellow gameroomers.

Simple. We don't need a fancy name.

The only ones I can think of are equally as funny.

I like pever's, though. Simple enough.

I very much approve of this, though probably for the wrong reasons. :tongue:

What are those reasons?

I remembered the word because I read Lucian's "The Donkey" once. Those who knows the story will know that this is a very wrong reason to remember that word.

Nothing like that. There's a really old/famous basketball arena in Philadelphia called "The Palestra" that I've been to a few times (I grew up 15 minutes outside the city) and really enjoyed watching the games there. It's very well-regarded.

What worries me more, is that Sigurd just realized this, when I have constantly used terms such as "GAY priority", etc, since its creation.

Just because staff doesn't do something right away doesn't mean that we don't notice it. :wink:

Now that's a horrible acronym. You wouldn't believe what it means; in my native tongue that is. Far more obscene than any other word.

I'd.... kinda like to give it a shot. I think I can handle it.

On a serious note, other games besides Mafia are developed/represented here, so we would prefer it if the new name of the place showcased only Mafia games.

"Assembly Yard" would work, you don't need "Gameroom" part.

Shortening the name to Assembly Yard or changing "Assembly" to "Construction" seems to be adequate. Otherwise I suggest Realm of Underground Lawless Entertainment #1.

Yeah, we'd prefer it if the new name DID NOT showcase only Mafia games. :oops:

Is it a bad sign that I can think more clearly at 4am than 4 in the afternoon?

In all seriousness, this is the best one that is not related only to mafia.
