"Drivel" is better but still condescending and doesn't capture the essence. "Teenage Angst" works but is still rather patronizing. How about "On a more Youthful Side" or "On a more Youthful Note" or something inoffensive like that? ... Zatamon? Peterkin? bemore? HoC? Any other poets? ... Bueller, Bueller, Bueller? ... We gotta come up with a less offensive forum section title.

EDIT: But for godssake don't use "For Our Youth", that'd be even worse than "Meaningless Drivel".

How about 'The Lazy Room' or 'Personal Level' or 'Get To Know Each Other'?

I'm really bad at stuff like this.

Worst

I like your suggestions, but also don't want to imply that it's only for the younger members here. Any other ideas?

I appreciate the input BTW.

How about: "Lighthearted Forum"? Huh

My 23 yo son says "Goddam Dad, you go pubbing and we go [singing] CLUBBBBBINGGG! Let me know if you need help doing something with that."

"Thank's son. ... Don't think I can do anything with that but I'll throw it out there."

EDIT: Okay, I think I got my boy's point but I was a little slow on the uptake. Let those members who are going to be active in the new section name it and define it.

I like Meaningless Drivel, or even just Drivel, and i have no problem with condescension... besides, it wouldn't be just for juvenile angst, once everyone else drivelled a bit.
Dribble?

RE: NEW FORUM SECTION
I personnaly like "the trolls lair" But that's just me.

Perhaps a name that says more randomness than anything would be best. Names like "The funhouse" or "What?" or even "That other place" Something that hints towards the content. Meaningless drvel covers it fairly well but some people might be upset if their thread got moved there. Not that I care about pepole's feelings I'm just trying to prevent any situations...which would actually be funny now that I think abot it. hmm. Do whatever you as you are top dog around here.

Great name. I liked the original too though. You could even shorten it to the other thing if you felt so inclined.
