The use of the Tavern name was tongue in cheek by me but I guess some members associate it with negativity that appears to exist around the off-topic Tavern category. So I'm posting a poll. Should it be changed? What do you feel it should be?

Let me state what the purpose of this forum is for. It is a place for members to post their impressions of Uniden products be they positive or negative. This is not a Rants forum! It is to serve topics that are border-line not Uniden oriented. Topics that would cross model boundaries would go here. Topics aren't meant to get too technical since we already have two forums for that.
The short version: it's a miscellaneous or catch-all forum.

Uniden Cage Match?

Ok, j/k.

"Uniden Miscellaneous" or "Uniden Other", perhaps. Actually, "Tavern" doesn't bother me.

I really like the new Uniden Forum lay out. I vote to keep it named as the Tavern, unless it will be moderated with an Iron Fist, then a name change should be in order.

I like Cage Match or Scanner Dome

Two scanners enter- One Scanner leaves

PS. I think the new sub-forum setup is dead on target, Nice job!!

I think the first line of your second paragraph offers a good suggestion for a name for this category: Uniden Impressions.

The name it has is fine but changing it is not something I'd object to either.

One suggestion is to put the informative stuff about the product back under a product category where it can easily be found rather than in the BS section.

Almost didn't find the discussion on batteries and the 436 because it had been moved to here.

Don't know if that's possible or even a good idea but something maybe to think about.

How about "Everything (else) fits here in miscellaneous" (Tavern is fine by me).

Tell people to take their fake "I want attention" outrage at a simple name elsewhere.

Tavern is already a well-known term for the place to rant and whatnot, but I have to say that the Lounge would not be a half bad update.

If you want to call someone out, call them out! Why beat around the bush? And why must Mod involvement always be the solution?

We'd have no issue with Uni Den (clever!). Remember, Uniden starts with U N I.

Tavern has been the moniker for so long I'd hate to see it change.

But, if you must, how about FREE? FREE is Foolishness, Rants, Everything Else.

Well?
