Rename this board?

Posted by Barry Miller

I really like the Mindat message boards very much. But, I must say that I find the name of this board rather demeaning. Does anyone agree? Wouldn't Mineral Valuation (also noted) be better?
JON ERTMAN September 06, 2008 02:37PM
I agree,jon
Ian Jones September 06, 2008 05:12PM
i think it's fine as it is!(tu)
Maggie Wilson September 07, 2008 11:56PM
I agree with Barry ...I vote for a rename as well...

Actually it's grown on me. If you want valuations, live with the title ( money grubber ).

Rock Currier was the one who initiated this board, and the name is of his choosing. Since he was the one who went to the time and effort, I think he should be able to call it what ever he thinks appropriate.
Jim Bean September 08, 2008 02:59AM
Another vote for status quo...
Justin Zzyzx September 08, 2008 03:16AM

Keep it the same.

The name fits, leave it as it is.
Claus Hedegaard September 29, 2008 08:12AM
The name is fine with me. It seems to attract the right people and questions. Credits to Rock for his efforts.

All the best

Is there any money to be made in renaming this forum?

If not, I vote to keep the name

The name is classic Rock. He's a dealer... get the joke? It fits in nicely with the "Cash and Hidden Treasures" show effect that's cropping up these days as well.

This is the greatest name ever chosen! Was originally under the impression that it was named in derision and was a bit bemused at the attitude. However, self-flagellation is the actual theme and seems to get to the point very well. If we take it too seriously, the phun will wane.
