discussion room[edit]

Can discussion room or chat room be attested before the use of room on its own in this sense? --WikiTiki89 08:19, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

Good question. I wouldn't think so, but that's just a guess. DAVilla 01:17, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
Abstain. I wouldn't vote delete until my question is investigated. --WikiTiki89 08:51, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
Delete. Discussion room? Oh I WONDER what that’s FOR HMMMMMMMMMMM --Æ&Œ (talk) 00:38, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
Keep. The definition "A forum or message board" is incomplete, though; it should be "An Internet forum or message board" or the like. If this is a semantic sum of parts ("SOP"), then with respect to what sense of "room"? By looking at google books:"discussion room", I see the term sometimes used to rooms people can physically occupy; how common is that usage? Does the phrase tend to pick the Internet context in preference over a physical face-to-face context? --Dan Polansky (talk) 08:28, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
You are looking for sense 12 of room, (Internet, countable) A forum or chat room. -- Liliana 05:35, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
