Default Re: Naming rooms: suggestions for words GANZ could add

That's what I've been doing lately as well - leaving the numbers instead of naming the room.

Don't forget to add fruits & vegetables. My gardens are corn, cabbage..etc.

I personally had to start naming my pets what I want my rooms to be name. My October Pug is Kookie Scientist, since I have themed rooms.

Too bad we have to do it this way.

I have several rooms I want to create, but am seriously deterred by the fact that I won't be able to name them appropriately.
Terrific Idea!!!!

I TOTALLY agree that the new naming system is terrible. However, I've discovered a sort-of-workable way to get around it, but it's not great for several reasons and I've only used it a few times. What I did is name three of my new pets with the room name I wanted. For example, I named my bat "Halloween", so then I was able to name his room "Halloween's Lair". Another pet I named "Science", so I named his room "Science's Room" (so I could make a room for all my experiment & science stuff).

Obviously, this is not great for several reasons: First, I hate the thought of naming my pets dumb names like "Science" or "Garden" or "Library", etc. etc. Also, the room names are awkward - they should read "Science Room", not "Science's Room" (when you choose a pet's name in the first pull-down it automatically adds an " 's " to the pet name, the possessive form, making a pet name like "Lilly" into the room name "Lilly's room". Does that make sense?). Plus, the second pull-down choices are WAY too limited. Couldn't someone from Ganz have looked through some of the great room ideas posted in WI to see that we use LOTS more words than "room", "lair", "bathroom", "kitchen", blah, blah, blah? Ganz has totally taken away our creativity!

A long time ago, I titled a few rooms "Items to Store or Trade". Now if I want to make a new room like that, I'll have to name a pet "Storage" or something equally stupid and name the room "Storage's Room". Yuck and double yuck. Sigh.

So for now, I'll use this method very sparingly in the hope that Ganz will either change the room naming system back to the way it used to be or improve it (greatly). In the meantime, I've also printed out a paper copy of my map and have started writing room names on the paper without using the Webkinz naming system at all. That'll work unless I lose it...

To end this post on a POSITIVE note: I just bought a whimsy dragon off the shelf at the mall yesterday! I guess they're back now!!!

This is great. I hate the whole naming thing. I would love to have all the theme names added. But you guys have so many wonderful ideas. I hope they change it back or at least take some of these wonderful suggestions. Naming the rooms was half the fun. I'm also just leaving numbers now, just can't bring myself to use that system.

thanks for your suggestion!! it is terrible that we have to "work around" this naming problem. I sincerely hope GANZ will revert to the old system or greatly improve the current one
