Default Can we update "Game Consoles Smackdown" to just "Gaming Smackdown"?

James just said what several others have said recently, but better:

While this isn't a problem specific to the post James just made, there has been some complaints that topics & points made in that forum are not relevant because the title of the Forum says "Consoles", even when consoles are the discussion. If it would only take an Admin a couple of minutes to update the forum's title, it would save those of us who spend our days there some grief from the trolls members who want to keep the focus of discussion more narrow.

It does seem time for the generational change.

I agree, the scope of discussion necessitates a change to the subforum title and description. If no strong objections occur or if enough people support the change, i'll make it so.

Likely:

subforum name: Gaming Smackdown
description: Have a favorite platform or console? Weigh in here.

I think that's appropriate. Maybe should allow others with a different point of view a day or so to weigh in. I'm sure there are some people who would like to argue against broadening the scope past consoles. That, and price, have been the only line of defense when it comes to ignoring the PC etc.

It's all interrelated at this point, and they'll all be compared and discussed anyway. May as well just acknowledge it -- afterall, for the sake of HD relevancy, PC's are pretty much always gaming in HD even if the Consoles are not - and many of the current gaming PC's have BD drives.
