It came up in chat that perhaps we should give a name to the main chat room, like how the main Arqade chat room is called “The Bridge.” Is this a good idea, and if so what names do you recommend?
As I mentioned in my other answer about the site name:
The Practice Room
... in reference to the common experience of musicians of all styles of music!
And if the site ends up being called Music: Theory & Practice, this also becomes a play on "chat room" and the site title. ;-)
Although it also fits other performing arts it might fit the bill here. However not every musician is a stage performer and might never be backstage (such as composers, producers, studio musicians, etc). But the chat is kind of backstage to the main site.
The Green Room
The green room is a general term for a room that performers hang out in before they perform.
The same discussion came up with the suggestion of calling our main chat room:
. . . in reference to orchestra pits and mosh pits.
... in reference to the song.
Or an alternative:
Not the band, but the session where everyone contributes
Because of its Greek roots: συν (sun - u pronounced like German ü) = together and φωνή (foni) = voice.
I mixed some words up, luckily shevliaskovic caught it. Turns out it is an even better fit, in a chat room voices are together. (Bit awkwardly phrased, my English is not perfect either.)
The Music Room seems fairly apposite to me! If we've got one, we're lucky. if we haven't most of us would like one...
Or we could add something like
Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Chat Band
