Default please come up with a plan for renaming our rooms

We have got to have a way to name our rooms. I have had an account for years and I can not find my rooms, I have to guess at where they might be. If we cannot name our rooms, then be more creative. What do I name my soccer room. How can I tell which rare room is what. I am so tired of all of my rooms having to have the same name. There has got to be a way. I have way too many rooms and I dont dare store anything, or I will never find it again. Lets do something for the people who do play for years.

We should be able to type our own names. It should at least have to be the same messages we can do in KC+

No. People were abusing the system. The only way is to have a very big vocabulary and be able to select word by word like:

Type of room: collection, storage, decoration
Theme: Forest, Kids, Egyptian Rare etc.
Prefix: The, Pets (list of pets nmames)
suffux: bedroom, bathroom, storage room

and the name could be: The Forest Bedroom or Pets' Egyptian Rare Storage room.

I would really appreciate returning the old name system, at least for players who signed up for KC+ (others would see the room system numbers instead of custom names). But, at the very-very least, they could add new canned names. Here are a few obvious suggestions: Grove, Sanctuary, Pyramid, Temple, Hospital, Club, Shed, Junkyard, Theme Park, Field, Arena, Stadium, Collection Room, Chalet, Lab, Corridor...

We used to have the room-naming option where we could type in the names we wanted. But now, GANZ took that away and replaced it with another system that has words pre-set into the system. Just click onto your room while using the "rename" button. You don't just have to keep it at numbers. I think it is fine the way it is

They have a name every time they come up with a new theme. The least they could do is automaticly add it to the list of room names already there. Prehistoric, soccer, green leaf, etc.
I long ago wished they would add colors to the list.

I Agree!

The names available now are not that useful.

The history of room naming for those who are new to WW

We used to be able to name our rooms practically anything we wanted. We had limitations but those were mostly based on religious and seasonal names (could not use "church, temple, chapel, synagogue, Christmas, Easter, Jewish, Christian ... and so forth). Basically any word or name for something that was not politically correct was not allowed.

I designed a Medieval Chapel and wanted to name it as such but, of course, was unable to. With some creative thinking on my part, I came up with "Medieval Place to Unite" and to me, that name represented my Medieval Chapel.

In early 2008, when you adopted your first 10 pets and got your first 10 rooms, the room name contained the name of the pet ~ i.e. Spike's room ~ and the same holds true to this day. However, if you changed "Spike's room" to something else, you could not change it back to "Spike's room."

This caused A LOT of people to phone, email, snail-mail, post about it on WI, and write about this in the Comments Box under Contact Us in WW. Members wanted to be able to name the room(s) after the pet that occupied it. In my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, this was the main request members had.

In early 2008, Ganz responded and proudly announced that they "heard WW's members and listened to them" and revealed the room-naming system we now have in place. I use the word "proudly" because as I remember it, Ganz was extremely proud of this revision to WW and made it sound like it was all the members' idea to come up with this ridiculous way of naming our rooms. Hey guess what members ?? You can now name your rooms after your pets all you want ... you just can't name them anything else unless it's on the list.

Be careful what you wish for

Members were outraged and aghast !! The majority of people despised this new system and it's limitations, so guess what ?? Members bombarded Ganz again and asked for the old room naming system back. And guess what ?? Ganz said NO WAY based on this reasoning ~

Some members were abusing the room naming system as it was prior to early 2008 and giving their rooms inappropriate names. Ganz announced that this drop down menu method of naming rooms would eliminate that problem once and for all.

My personal opinion

Who in Webkinz World sees what you name your rooms except if and when you invite a friend over ?? If a child or teenager (or even an adult for that matter) has named a room using unacceptable words and invites a friend over and the friend tells their parents that "Little Johnny" used a bad word when he named his kitchen, I say let the parents duke it out and leave the responsible children, teenagers and adults to name their rooms as they see fit. Even with more options in the drop-down menu system we have now, it is far too constricting to simply name a room "The Egyptian Room", although no doubt this would be an improvement.

The situation as it stands now

April 30, 2010 ~ Excerpts from the Twitter Party held by Ganz and hosted by the Creative Director ~

Q. Why can’t we name our own rooms?

A. People were abusing the room naming very badly. I loved that feature myself, but we had to remove it.

Q. Hoping we could be allowed freedom to name our rooms anything again. Only we see them.

A. Actually anyone who visits your home can see your room names. That's why we changed them. But we'll consider it.

"Consider it" means it ain't gonna happen .... just like bringing back a revised Family Deluxe Plan ain't gonna happen.

The bottom line

Some excellent suggestions have been made by members in this thread and other threads dealing with this "it's not gonna go away" topic. The bottom line in my opinion ~ if you can type it in KinzChat Plus, you should be able to name your room using the same words from the same KinzChat Plus dictionary.

Question ~ Has anybody ever actually designed a Mud Room ??

Below, a blast from the past ... unfortunately, something new WW members will not get to enjoy ... Can you guess what's inside each of these rooms ??
