Now that we've made it past the one year mark, lets take sometime and consider if we should have a fancier name for our main chatroom.

The previous post from over a year ago favored, the generic "Anime and Manga Chat" name as the name. I personally think we should come up with something unique like what the other SE sites have done, but I'll leave the ultimate decision up to the community. Do we want a (cool) new name for our main chat room?

If you're interested in proposing a new name, post a answer to this question that includes:

  • The suggested name (possibly explain why that name).

  • A description of the room (feel free to add any tags you feel are relevant -- it doesn't matter if they currently exist or not).

  • An explanation is optional, but it will help other understand your intent.

As "A" wise person once said:

In any case, provide one per answer, so other people can vote on a single proposal. :)

I've mentioned this several times in the chat. But to make it official:

How about: "The Maid Cafe"

It's not very original, but:

  • It's short.
  • Easy to remember.
  • Representative of the culture.
  • Has a fairly minimal risk of offending anybody.

I don't have any ideas for a description though. Feel free to make a suggestion.

  • (The) Maids, (Have) Arrived!.

  • I see. But it would be boring without maids.

    Btw there is another trope - "a haunted house". Since the room looks so empty.

    I like that first one, "Serving the Anime/Manga Dream". :) Could also be, "Serving the Otaku Dream". But Anime/Manga is more recognizable.

  • @Mysticial i was going to do Otaku but yeh, for the same reason you mentioned, Anime/Manga is more recognizable

Name: MADHouse (Manga and Anime Discussion House)

Description: Your one-stop studio for parodying and reliving as your favorite anime/manga characters. Y U NO MAD?



Name: Ahnenerbe Cafe


  • "A coffee shop used as a location for TYPE-MOON metafiction, involving the Fate, Tsukihime, and Kara no Kyoukai worlds." -- from Type Moon Wiki.
  • I like this, but I looked up "Ahnenerbe" and got a Nazi research institute, for what it's worth...

    @Maroon: Yes, it is also mentioned in the Type Moon Wiki. Might be a problem if people don't get the reference.

Name: Anime & Manga Chat

Description: General discussion for anime.stackexchange.com. Discuss your favorite character, theories, and series. Ask or give recommendations. Nothing related to the subject of anime and manga is off-topic here.

This is the current name/description of the chatroom. Upvote (or downvote) this post if you want (resp. don't want) to keep the chatroom name/description the same.

    I'm downvoting because this makes the chat and main site tabs indistinguishable without the mouseover text: i.sstatic.net/YTu7L.png. I wouldn't be opposed to a similar name that is distinct from the main site name though.

    @LoganM Very good point. If it matters, imagine that I have downvoted this post too, because that really is kind of annoying now that you mention it.
