# What should we call our chat room?

We, like all other sites, have a chat room. However, currently it has the rather boring name of "Quantum Computing".

Most other sites have a room with a more intresting name: The Nineteenth Byte for Code Golf, The Sphinx's Lair for Puzzling, The Bridge for Arqade, etc.

What are your suggestions for a better chat room name?

• The h Bar is already taken by Physics. – jk - Reinstate Monica Mar 13 '18 at 12:50
• It seems that there is a bit of a consensus =) – heather Mar 15 '18 at 14:48
• Thanks to our new room owner, Blue, our chat room has been renamed to "The Classical Channel" – Mithrandir24601 Mar 23 '18 at 8:51

## (The) Classical channel

In quantum computing, a classical channel is a means of transferring classical information. The chatroom is a classical channel.

Imagine all the ridiculous puns that will be enjoyed...

• I like this. But perhaps modify it a bit to "The Classical Channel". – Sanchayan Dutta Mar 13 '18 at 16:08
• I second @Blue's proposal – Pavel Mar 13 '18 at 17:44
• I cannot think of a single pun. – Ken Sharp Mar 16 '18 at 3:24
• @KenSharp Clearly, your classical methods are insufficient. Try Quantum ;) – Discrete lizard Mar 19 '18 at 16:21
• :( but quantum mechanics is in a way the opposite of classical. – vzn Mar 23 '18 at 15:22
• UPDATE: The room name has now been changed to "The Classical Channel", as this was the highest voted answer. – Sanchayan Dutta Mar 24 '18 at 6:36

# Schrödinger's Chat

A pun on Schrödinger's Cat. It has more to do with Quantum Mechanics in general than just Quantum Computing, but I wanted to throw it out there.

• I -1'ed this proposal and want to explain my reasoning – As you said yourself, this is more about Quantum rather than Computing, and we seem to ban such questions. Having this name might therefore confuse some, so I think we should choose something more specific to quantum computing (this one fist Physics.SE too, for example). Though I have to agree that the pun is great :) – Mr. Xcoder Mar 12 '18 at 19:30
• Oh my, you used my name, or rather some mispronounced form of it, without my permission!! That's straight-away a copyright infringement... – SchrodingersCat Mar 13 '18 at 14:45

The Entanglement

Because this is at the heart of quantum computing.

• Or Human Entanglement because the chatroom connects humans ... – MEE Mar 14 '18 at 20:01

Really, really bad one, but: Controlled-HAT: controlled-NOT or CNOT, or, in this case, CHAT...

• I like the idea of this, if not the exact example. Some kind of pun on quantum gates would be neat. – DanielSank Mar 13 '18 at 3:50

## Quantum channel

A quantum channel is a means of transferring quantum information, i.e. a quantum bit register. In the case of the chat room, the "quantum channel" refers to the idea that each SE site is a channel for a specific topic, this one being quantum computation.

QuChat. (Or maybe QChat)

Like bit $\rightarrow$ qubit, chat $\rightarrow$QuChat

It also has QChat in it.

• Maybe QuaC????? – user51 Mar 12 '18 at 20:23
• @VladSpirin QuaC is also great. Perhaps put it as an answer, not a comment. – Zoltan Zimboras Mar 12 '18 at 20:31
• I like the suggestion QChat. Maybe we could put it in as <Q|C> chat, to make it look more visually appealing. :) – Sanchayan Dutta Mar 12 '18 at 20:43

# The Unobservatory

Because this site is about research where you can't observe what you're studying (the qubits) without ruining their state.

Taking a cue from IatamarG3, I suggest:

or

## < Q | C > chat

• -1 for too hard to type/remember – DanielSank Mar 13 '18 at 3:36
<Qu|Co|De>


I don't know how this will go, but, as mentioned in the above name, Qu.Co.De. means Quantum Computing Department.

• It is my opinion that if a room name is best rendered using Latex it's not a great room name. – Pavel Mar 13 '18 at 15:05
• @Pavel I used Latex only to increase the size of my title. Other than that, the Latex has no use. I am removing it if it creates any miscommunication. – SchrodingersCat Mar 13 '18 at 15:07
• I meant that more generally, that symbols in a room name aren't a good thing. – Pavel Mar 13 '18 at 15:08
