I found a way to deal with the system because I became as frustrated as all of you.
So I adopted pets with names that would trigger theme/room type and/or are closely associated with a specific room type.
Here are a few of my examples:
For Rooms that you want to make Closets
: Pet names are/or can be
Kate (as in Kate Spade) Medieval Theme/Ancient: I commet to either Royality for 1 theme and elite/royalty for the other Dutchess and Duke may be for reserved Ancient Themes and for Medieval all King and Queen and Prince, etc
Pricess ______ <fill in any name
you get the idea Egyptian Theme
Google Gods and Godesses or mythology
than pick a name or trait that you feel sybolizes your pets personality
Example for God & Godess
Sparkle (sparkling Clean!) Scientific Theme
Goobs or Goobers
Neil (Armstrong)....(for a spacelike science theme)
And trading Card rooms
are bit more tricky, but with creativity you can find a name to fit the room.
The best thing to do is pick a favorite prize from the cards and use an online free translator and use any choice of langauge and name your pet ...
well technecally it is post card but it was the one out of the choices that could pass as a name Wshop Rock Theme
Jack (Jack Johnson)
Hannah (Hannah Montana)
pick any favorie rock Star
I will stop with examples, but I was very upset with the change and this is how I have help myself identify my rooms...
I hope this helps some of you
