Fun things to call websites:
I feel like hub, portal, galaxy aren't fun?
Patterns are: private domain of a person or other animal, otherwise mysterious places, waypoints, places that suggest collections of items, meeting points, ???
Can't think of any garden related ones I've seen (maybe I've seen garden before?), but patch, treehouse, plot, grotto, nook.
Heap is a semi-related one I like too. *arium too.
Softspot for just calling page x's web.
Totally forgot other meeting place ones like plaza, square ...
It all still seems like a narrow way of thinking about websites, even it it seems massivley less narrow than what we have now.
@gamemakingtools they’re all very skewed towards communal space concepts. where’s the ones that sound like it’s my front porch and i’m sitting on a rocking chair looking menacing and holding a shotgun?
- puppies petting zoo
- abandonsed rubber factory
@zens Yes good point.
Closest is 'dungeon' or 'lair' I guess. But not the same.
I used to always use 'dungeon'. Seems a bit kinky now though. Maybe it was subconsciously the vibe I wanted on a ROMs site, I dunno.
@gamemakingtools no, limp biscuit, not limp bizkit. just like beetles existed before the beatles, so did limp biscuits exist before limp bizkit.
@gamemakingtools ah yes, i am slow- i eventually figured out that’s what must be going on. i guess i have just lived woth the trauma of the concept long enough to have it be abstract as a piss jar

It's kinda an offshoot of Game Making Tools, which is a wiki(+) for a similar audience.
