History has a SE chat room, something I only just realised. Most other chat rooms have a nickname. Can we think of something clever to call ours?

Some examples of other SE sites and their chat rooms:

  • Stack Overflow = The Heap
  • Linguistics = lɪŋˈgwɪstɪks
  • Super User = Root Access
  • Cooking = The Frying Pan
  • Travel = You Are Here
  • Writers = The Overlook Hotel
  • Bicycles = The Velodrome

    Could we have some examples of the other nicknames?

Here are my suggestions:

"Here's What Happened"

"Something Happened"

"I Remember That"

I also like Steve's suggestion.

This was really inspired by Steven Drennon's answer, but how about The Wayback Machine?

Hearkening back to one of my favorite cartoon bits as a kid. It was at least as accurate as The History Channel is today...

  • "Wayback machine" is already the name of the service offered by archive.org

    @Lohoris - Yup. Its a favored name for things on the internet. I'll grant you that could be a big drawback.
