    Hey folks,

    The mods have come to agree that the current room name, Carnivorous/Quasi-Carnivorous: etc. etc., is a bit...bland. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    The mods are probably going to get me for this, but I would like to leave it up to the general body of forumites, mods included, to decide what this room should be called.

    We could always leave the name as it is, but how could we ever forgive ourselves? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Having a poll should be the next step after we decide in this thread what few names are our favorites. Everyone, feel free to propose a name that is not included in the tentative list below.

    misfits
    potpourri
    sort of carnivorous
    kind of carnivorous
    semi-carnivorous
    possibly carnivorous
    hopefully carnivorous
    if-we-hope-and-pray carnivorous
    let's-pretend-it's-carnivorous
    (hope the person was joking on the last few)

    Well, there they are. My personal favorites are "Misfits" and "Potpourri" because, I think, they convey accurately that the plants in the room's title don't fit into any particular cetegory, besides the fact that they're a mixed bag, that they're not as popular as other plants grown by CPers.

    Dyflam, are you trying to condescend on us by implying you know more latin [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] Bah... Thats an OK idea, just a bit vague for the passerby...

    Strictly off the internet brother... e pluribus funk.

    Edit: Maybe it should be titled like the other discussions:

    Of a Different Kind (Alieni Generis)

    Absit invidia, Dyflam, but non possumus! Your Latin is nulli secundus, but it would be best to keep such material away from profanum vulgus...pro bono publico, you know.
