We need some changes around here!

So, there are some things I've wanted to modify for a while, mostly involving names. Instead of renaming these things immediately, I've decided I should have everyone vote on which of these changes should be made. I wouldn't want to do something that my fellow forumers wouldn't like. So, I'll list each change and why I feel like it should be done:

Move Ponyville Gates to "Important Stuff": Ponyville Gates is in a category all by itself, known as "New Ponies". I don't think it should be alone in its own category, and it would probably look nicer if it was paired up with News Bulletin and Ponyville Post Office.
Merge Theater Lobby into Central Equestria: Originally, there was a "Ponyville Theater" that linked to mlp-fim.com so you could watch episodes of MLP:FiM whenever you wanted. However, since that site is now defunct thanks to Hasbro's Cease and Desist letter there was no point in linking to it so the theater link was taken down. So Theater Lobby's name is kind of pointless now. Originally Theater Lobby was meant for discussing the show itself, with Central Equestria being intended for anything not directly related to the show but still pony-related (Mainly fandom stuff). However I've noticed that the topics being posted in Central Equestria aren't too much different from the topics in Theater Lobby (Which hasn't had much activity), so maybe I should just merge Theater Lobby into Central Equestria to make it into a general place for all pony stuff.
Rename Text-Based Games to Forum Games: Some of these games aren't really text-based. Forum Games would be a more generic name for it.
Rename Role-Playing Games to Roleplays: Roleplays would fit better, since that's exactly what the topics in this forum are: Roleplays. Role-Playing Games sounds too similar to a video game genre anyway.
Rename Doctor Whooves' Quiz Board: What was I thinking when I came up with that name? Why does this "Quiz Board" belong to Doctor Whooves? I really want to find a better name for this. I'm open to suggestions here, because I have no definite ideas for alternate names yet.
Rename Pinkie Pie's Basement to Applejack's Barn: Pinkie Pie's Basement was not intended to be a Cupcakes reference, but it looks too much like one. Although I don't think Applejack would be one to start clubs, or keep secrets... Really, this one's your call. Unless this gets mostly "Yay" votes, I'm fine with not making the change.
FIX THE FLIPPIN SMILEYS ALREADY: Some of the smileys have been broken for over 6 months. I know you want me to get to fixing them already, even though it may take a while... :razz:

All these changes will only be made if there are more "Yay" votes on them. Remember, it's okay to say no. I'm not going to get upset if you disagree with me on some of these modifications. Otherwise I wouldn't have made a poll in the first place. :rainbowderp3:
I'm doing a Null Vote on the poll so that my personal bias doesn't get mixed in with the results.

Re: We need some changes around here!

Well, yay to all except the Applejack's Barn one.
Also, how about Twilight's Question Column? I don't know, it just sounds nice to me. :razz:
And I think static.fimfiction.com may have been taken off the internet, and that's why the smilies are broken, but I'll do a quick Google Search and see.
EDIT: Wow, I failed. Fimfiction is a .net domain. That's like me pushing on the doors that pull open.
UPDATE EDIT: Okay, looks like I may have been partly right. static.fimfiction.net still exists, but its smilies do not.

^Same.^


"A regular Friday audience, 90 percent feminine and 100 percent well-bred, sat stoically yesterday through thirty minutes of the most cacophonous world premiere ever heard here - the first performance anywhere of a new Violin Concerto by Arnold Schoenberg. Yesterday's piece combines the best sound effects of a hen yard at feeding time, a brisk morning in Chinatown and practice hour at a busy music conservatory. The effect on the vast majority of hearers is that of a lecture on the fourth dimension delivered in Chinese." -An anonymous Philadelphia Record reviewer, on Schoenberg's Op. 36 Violin Concerto.

"I am delighted to add another unplayable work to the repertoire." -Arnold Schoenberg, on his Op. 36 Violin Concerto.

Re: We need some changes around here!

pinkie's polls would probably sound best for the poll forum, if purely for aesthetics

Re: We need some changes around here!

Alright, I've allowed more than enough time for people to vote on the poll. Except for fixing the smileys since it takes a while (Yes, I know I should seriously have that taken care of eventually or else it could be that way forever...), I'll make all of these changes since most of the voters have agreed to them.

Closing this since there doesn't need to be any more voting.
