TOPIC | when did Venues get renamed to Stages?
1 2
Coliseum used to have Venues, not Stages, right? I just noticed the Stage wording in the new database and now I'm wondering when and why the name changed - does anyone know? Or are Venues and Stages different things?

When you're about to pick a venue off the screen, it says "Select a stage". I don't know if it always said that, but if so, maybe it's to have the same wording across the site? I don't think there's any reasoning behind it beyond thinking "stage" fits better than "venue".

@nika The staff seem to use them synonymously, or I can't see their precise difference in usage.

@LaskaEira I'm like 95% sure that used to say venue. I mean, we all got that word from somewhere, right??

Venue seemed like a good enough word, I just find unexplained changes confusing.

@Dagomor Huh, thanks! That's even weirder, honestly...

Within the Encyclopedia, they are labeled as Venues. So it seems Dagomor is correct in that they use it interchangeably.

Seems like it! Although they did say the Encyclopedia Coli section is outdated.

I rather hope they don't completely replace them from "venue" to "stage". I think venue sounds nicer

It's not like I'll drop dead if they change it, but there's nothing wrong with calling them venues

Venue makes more sense to me. Stage kind of implies that you would do them in order and “complete” them, when really you just go all over the place like going to different venues. But they aren’t level based, and there’s nothing wrong with them being stages.

[b]Stage[/b] is the official term; as someone stated above, that's what is used in the Coliseum itself. But we sometimes colloquially use "venue", which is sort of an older term that we slip into using. [emoji=spiral happy size=1]

Aha, thanks for explaining! I do like venue better, but ah well.
