Default I solved my own....

room naming problem.
my kiddies have 1 account each & i, now, have my own account. since my account will basically consist of the duplicates such as POTM's (i sometimes buy 2-3 during a month) and the WCares webkinz. where as my kiddies adopt all the new ones!
since i am not a big fan trying to come up with 50 names for the same webkinz i started naming my webkinz by a name of a room i would like to name.
for example...
i built a chapel just the other day... there is nothing to suggest such a title.
today i adopted a free pet found in the trading card packs. i named her 'Chapel'.
once done i went to my rooms and map to rename and sure enough in the first drop down box i found 'My Chapel"..... now there after you have to choose something in the second drop down box.... i just left it as an All Purpose Room...
so now on my map it reads "My Chapel All Purpose Room"
i could live without the "all purpose room" but atleast i now know where my chapel is!

hope this tip helps some of you!!

I really like that idea!
It's very creative. ;]
I really wish GANZ could just keep the original naming though...
I mean Webkinz Worlders have had so much trouble for maybe over a year trying to name rooms, and now it's very limited.
As again, GREAT idea.
Rep points for you, my friend. =]

Aww, Chapel's actually not a bad name for a Webbie. I like it!

Glad you figured something out that works for you. I'm sure quite a few folks will be using the same technique. Reppies for the tips.


Personally, I tend to enjoy naming my pets... I do have a few that are really generic, or seemingly generic but have meaning to me, but overall, mine all have relatively unique names. I'm just using pet types/names that I already have to name my rooms now.

ie: I have a polar bear named Icicle. I use his name in any winter themed room. I have a panda named Koi (a japanese fish) so my newest underwater room was "Koi's Cave." I have a "Hibiscus's Restaurant" for my beach eaterie. Similar method, I just pick names that I already used that are somewhat descriptive of the room, so I don't have to sacrifice a cute pet name just to name my rooms. (I can't imagine naming a pet "Garage" LOL.)

This is a good idea for those with multiple accounts and duplicates of the same webbies. For some who trade on the GE it has been frustrating to come up with names that helps identify where certain items for trade are located in our WW house.

May not work for everyone but very useful to know. Thanks for sharing.

i am not looking forward to naming one bathroom poor webbie!

thats a good idea you have too! ill have to peek around to see what names i already have that we can use!

this is my first complaint ever towards ganz!! through all their glitches, freeze screen's, maintenance i've never complained ~truly patient~
but this naming problem is terrible. within a week both my kiddies account/map are a mess!
we cant find anything anymore.
but now with your technique im going to go see what i can clean up!! both DS & DD have about 80 webkinz! theirs bound to be a few names i can use!!

well thank you very much!! i'd actually feel bad for the newer nicer webkinz to be named around room names.

All my rooms currently have those miscellaneous numbers you get when you buy a room still, from Christmas!
+ the fact having 80 Webkinz takes the list a very long time to load.

Default Re: I solved my own....

i gave up on naming rooms exactly what i wanted last year. so i would come up with creative alternatives that didn't always work bc pet's names were not acceptable. for instance, we have three pets that share a room: Curren (boy chocolate lab), Zeus (boy raccoon) and Ares (boy lil st. bernard). That room is named "boy raccoon current dog" (Course you cannot do that now!)

that still didn't solve the problem completely. we have only one boy raccoon so i always knew that was Zeus and it was obvious that current stood for Curren. The dog, however, was a problem. I had problems like this on MANY rooms. So, I started a powerpoint slide and took pics of the rooms and labeled it whose room it was and what it was called on the map. I'll have to continue that bc bc having the choice of only two words is not a great option when you've got more than one pet in the room. I'm not happy that I cannot have an Aztec room. Maybe I will name a pet Aztec.

Please, whatever you do, do not torture your pet and name it BATHROOM! LOL!!!

UPDATE:

this is an example of what i did. it did take two slides for each room (one slide holds a bunch of the rooms on the map.) the title on the 2nd slide is wrong. i corrected that and tried to upload the revised pic but somethings wrong with photobucket. it should read what the map says, plus dresser (that slide shows what is inside the dressers): "boy raccoon current dog dresser"

lol.. try coming up with names for 37 Pandas!

The monkeys were hard for me though. I do a lot of tree/plant/flower/spice/asian inspired/country/city names. After naming my first monkey Dogwood, I couldn't think of another. I just let the girls name them - Coco, Coconut, Bananas, etc.


But oh, poor little Bathroom. LOL. Maybe you could do the old "Powder Room" or name a pet "Little Boy" or "Lady" ... then you'd have "Lady's All Purpose Room." LOL.
