Default Unanswered: Renaming rooms.

I need help renaming my rooms. Is the drop down list the only names I can use anymore? When did this change?

Yes I believe the drop downs are all your able to use. I like it better only because I don't have to worry about being told i have used a word that is not allowed a whole bunch of time. I find this method a lot easier and quicker then before

Yes, it just changed with those long updates Thursday and Friday. I am torn half and half, as I got sick of not being able to name things without trying 100 different tries. I am very irritated that you can't just name something Dog's Room, that there is no "room" option, just All Purpose Room or other options, like spa, rec room, stuff like that. Seems like a big M-I-S-S to not have "ROOM" in the drop-down list.

I preferred to name the rooms myself, even with Ganz's limited glossary, I was able to come up with something original. The drop down boxes don't offer much in the realm of creativity, imo.
I'd place clues in my room titles so I know where certain themes are, even if I combined themes in a room.

I agree with Marthaaa and Guinny. Even if Ganz thought they were making the naming of rooms easier for children, both my niece and nephew are outraged that they aren't able to name their rooms according to their themes now. I think that definitely strips some of the creative joy out of the process for them

I really don't like this new feature. I much rather keep trying my own room names until one takes.
I know that could be frustrating but this is so limiting.

I wish Ganz would do a poll sometimes before changing stuff around. I personally think they should keep both ideas have a choice to use the old style or new style to make everyone happy. Isn't that the whole idea is to make your customers happy we do pay them for this service even if it's not a monthly fee and it's a fee from buying there product. I do like some of the other changes they have done like the Vacation and Spa just wish they would get more user input before doing some of these things!

I think it stinks. I just put in a garden and now I have no idea what's in it because I can't even name it according to its contents.

Also just created a TC3 room and none of the available descriptions match "Condo" etc. (considering there are two Condos themes available you'd think the programmers would have included this word at least).

They're already preventing users from certain names for their pets, now limiting the creative room names. What next.... they'll be giving us the names and telling us what rooms we can make?

That's an excellent suggestion Abbi - keeping both options open for naming. Everyone would be happy picking their fav method and I wouldn't have to deal with a tyke refusing to decorate a room or have anything to do with it because she can't customize it her way, LOL!

They should've at least had names for the different types of room themes that are available including the Fairy Forest and all the trading card themes. It just doesn't make any sense. Now it's going to be hard knowing what theme is each room so when you get something new, you have to click through the whole map!
