Should the name of Uncharted Territory be changed now?

    Pokemon Black & White is coming out on Sunday, and because of this I don't think it's appropriate to call it Uncharted Territory anymore, since we've been playing the game for months now.

    We should probably change the name to "Dream World" to fit with the IRC channel's name.

    EDIT: Oh, I thought people decided the name when they decided the IRC channel name. In that case, I'm happy as long as it's not uncharted territory. xD

    I would be fine with changing the name to Dream World.

    I personally like Dream World (the channel name was my idea :P), but I think the general consensus was anti-Dream World for the new UT name. Lets hear some suggestions before jumping to anything.

    I'd like to suggest the following:

    Challenger's Cave

    This name describes your mother's vagina perfectly, no challenger is turned away. Who can penetrate the secrets of this high level dungeon? Only the most intrepid of men, that's for sure.

    The fact that most regular users will think we named it after an in-game location is just a happy coincidence.

    I'd like to nominate:

    Abysmal Ruins

    I mean it describes the place nicely and bluntly!

    Every generation before has been the post-game dungeon, has it not? I think now's the time to break from tradition and try something fresh and bold.

    Definitely +1 against Dream World. I think we jumped the gun with the IRC channel.

    As much as I would prefer Abysmal Ruins or Giant Chasm, Seven Deadly Sins makes a convincing argument for Challenger's Cave

    N's Castle lalalala~~

    I think it's the coolest sounding?

    Honestly I think all of the names are fine though.

    The potential for innuendo here is just too good to pass up.

    Throwing my support especially behind Challenger's Cave, but I think Giant Chasm would also be a suitable choice.

    People could potentially interpret N's Castle to mean (BAN ME PLEASE)'s Castle, which would mean it's a worser name than Black City.

    yes

    I think it should be called Dream World just like the irc channel. Similarly to Stark, UT is a forum to discuss the latest competitive Pokemon trends and whatever, and it should be named just like the irc channel, which serves the same purpose, imo to avoid confusion.

    Do we really want to name the UT Forum after Nintendo's clusterfuckiest ideas yet?

    Challenger Cave sounds like some forum where wifiers can set up battles against each other.

    Abysmal Ruins sounds to much like ruins of alpha

    Let's go with Bowser's Castle
