JustBugsMe:

Probably time to admit that we need a better name for It Just Bugs Me. Something that doesn't invite complaints. Something directly related to Fridge Logic. Crowner attached.
Goal: Clear, Concise and Witty
Awesome.

Hmmm...just some brainstorming:
  • I've Been Wondering
  • I Just Realized
  • Headscratchers

Hmm...I had more, but nothing better than that last one.

Hm?
I Just Realized isn't bad. I have a couple, but they probably aren't great.
  • Wait A Minute
  • I've Been Thinking

Wait A Minute is probably the better one out of those two, though.

Finally. [awesome]

I Just Realized sounds pretty good in relation to Fridge Logic,
Headscratchers is really catchy. Also gets us away from any "I" statements that sound more like dialog than the name of something.
Goal: Clear, Concise and Witty
Grin and bear it
I thought I was clever for thinking of one: Fridge Leftovers.

Of course, it's a punny name that required too much thinking on my part, so there's two strikes against that. tongue

Seconding Headscratchers; I think that's the best one so far.

Okay Guy
Just Baffles Me?
Put me in motion, drink the potion, use the lotion, drain the ocean, cause commotion, fake devotion, entertain a notion, be Nova Scotian
What's cool is that if wechanged it to Headscratchers, we don't need to change the just bugs me icon, because we can Hand Wave it as a louse. grin
Rhymes with "Protracted."
How is just bugs me different from fridge logic?
if everyone owned a horse, the country would bea lot more stabilized

It isn't, very much. Though it can also include not-fridge logic (i.e., things that don't make sense even at first).
132 is the rudest number.
So in that case, why don't we get rid of just bugs me since it is covered in idea? the only reason we had just bugs me was because idea wasn't made yet

Because just bugs me tends to involve more protracted back-and-forthing than Fridge Brilliance and Fridge Horror, so it would take over that page.
132 is the rudest number.
Maybe the idea page should be for everything except Fridge Logic?

Headscratchers has come to be kind of like Lost and Found, but for plot points.

TURN OFF THAT LIGHT!
I agree that in many cases there is no discernible difference between just bugs me and idea. As a matter of fact the idea pages are sometimes longer like this one. We need to either have a better distinction between the two or merge them. Also how are we going to rename every just bugs me page we have?
Regulated fun - the best kind!
I don't make the rules, just enforce them with an iron fist.
Then we can finally unlock some pages.

So, how long should the crowner remain open? A week or two?
 
What is the point of Headscratchers, now that we have the fridge pages?

I don't mean to rush the process, but head scratchers has an 11 to one majority. That's a pretty overwhelming consensus.

But then again I could see how you would want to wait for more votes, but this forum dosen't get as much traffic as others. Maybe we should put a link to this discussion on the JBM main page?

Added this option:Delete it entirely, as it is now redundant because of the fridge pages.

Could we get a wiki headline for this thread?

[up][up]While I'm inclined to agree, this is a rename crowner, so it's not the place to make such a proposal.

@Dontcallmewave:But it's not. It's for asking questions about plot points, and the logic doesn't have to be of the fridge variety.

Alternative Titles: New Names For It Just Bugs Me
10th Apr '11 7:09:05 PM
Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
At issue:
