Another vote for the Canadian woods line. Excellent description.

Oh course the lame Enterprise line is winning... A 10 second line on one Stargate episodes 5-6 years ago....

The forest one is true for the last 15 years of ALL Stargate, not just one bad line from one bad episode.

I think the Enterprise thing works because it's fun. It's an affectionate line in the show to Star Trek, and paraphrased for a forum description. It's a little nod to the Star Trek forums above it too.

My suggestion of the woods was tongue-in-cheek, but is somewhat derogatory one could say.

So glad Enterprise is winning.

Totally agree, since Stargate these days is essentially all about self-parody, the Canadian woods line makes perfect sense. And it's clever and works as a forum description. Oh and it actually represents ALL of Stargate.

The Enterprise line is just lame, potentially confusing and, well, not actually that funny any more, 7 years later. As bigdaddy says, a solitary line from an episode years ago, to describe all of Stargate??

Obviously the latter will win now, and there are far more important things in life to worry about. I just find it strange that most people prefer that option.

I would vote for "Keep current description" only if it actually changes to "Keep current description."

True, but it's a joke the series made itself, in the third season I think?

I voted for the reproductive organs line, but I see it's getting no love. Guess the producers edited that one right out of everyone's memories as well as in the Final Cut.

I voted for the Enterprise one because it has forum in it

Actually, I think it was the Sir that did it.

We're not describing Stargate. We're describing the forum...or describing what the forum isn't.

I still think the line is funny, and it seems that other people do too.

"Describing what the forum isn't"? - riiiight, that makes perfect sense.

"We can't call it the Enterprise forum"? - Well no, because, erm, it's a Stargate forum.
