Boxing Ring needs a new name
IMO, The Boxing Ring should be renamed.

I don't know much about the forum mechanics, so if this is something horrifyingly difficult that might well break the forum then please let me know.

The current name suggests a pen where two brutes pummel one another until the loser falls bloodied and senseless. While I must admit that there is the occasional individual who would benefit from a solid dose of retrophrenology the majority of one-on-one debates tend to be relatively civil.

My concern is that the name itself is intimidating to newbies, many of whom are theists on an atheist forum and have just been invited to step into The Boxing Ring for a quiet chat.

I don't have a better suggestion at this moment. "Sniper Duel" and "Fish in a Barrel" both seem ill-advised.

RE: Boxing Ring needs a new name
I do like the connotations of something like "Fireside chat" or "Comfy corner"

I have never even looked in there. I have no interest in seeing people fight, verbally or otherwise. Now, if it stated "Wet Noodle Wars" I might just to see what was up. Smile

"Deep Thoughts" would be soothing for newbies.

RE: Boxing Ring needs a new name
Boxing does imply rules and a ref though...
