A quick suggestion to possibly rename the chatroom to something like "stackexchange photo chat".

I think having one chat room called "photographic memories" may put people off visiting if they think their questions are general photography and unrelated to 'memories'.

  • how do we go about changing the name? and what is the name we should use. "stackexchange photo chat" is a little dry...

Yeah, throw me in with the initially confused. And then I was like .... oohhhh, it's a pun, I get it. But still.

My vote is for renaming it "Photography".

    Agreed. I don't think it has to have a clever name. That being said, if someone comes up with an awesomely clever name that is still really clear about the subject, I wouldn't object. :)

Completely agree. Confused the heck out of me too at first. Maybe something slightly more clever than just se photo chat - but definitely needs to be more obvious.

  • But what to go for instead? There are all the clihcés around Darkroom Discussions, but that's not very inclusive Sep 30 '11 at 20:42

The Dark Room was suggested in chat, I like that idea.

    I can already see the "take it to chat" messages that would lead to: "Take it to The Dark Room and see what develops..." ;)

  • I also like the idea, BUT I think it bring up the same issues with confusion that the previous name had. So do I ask questions about digital photography in the "dark room" or just questions about "film developing"? I think the main chat page design adds to the confusion, and doesn't allow a quirky name without causing this issue.
