As much as I'm all for getting consensus before any significant changes to anything, the chat room name is not a terribly important thing, and I can see the value in allowing a room owner to change it temporarily in the spirit of fun. Accordingly, how's this:
- Any future changes to the room name, description, or tags should be reverted after roughly 24 hours, unless there is a non-negatively-received meta question seeking to extend the change. By "non-negatively-received" I mean there is not a clear consensus against the name change proposal. Hopefully most of us should know that when we see it, but for people who like quantitative conditions, a score of -2 or less probably indicates a consensus against the proposal. A slew of comments giving objections without a corresponding slew in support almost certainly indicates such a consensus.
- In all cases, changes to the room name, description, or tags should be reverted within a week (168 hours) unless the community has expressed a consensus for the change in a meta post. Again, consensus is something we should know when we see it, but in determining this we should take in to account votes as well as written responses.
- If the community finds a consensus in favor of this answer, then we'll change the room name, description, and tags back to what they were soon.
Oh, and while we're at it: we could formalize that changes to the room attributes should not be made by anyone except a room owner or SE staff. This is kind of a moot point because the only ones with the power to do it are other chat mods, and they know better, but I suppose we might as well have it in writing.
