I am not too happy with clicking on a shopping mall or something I
created and getting the blurb 'build something here blah blah". is
there any way to change these details?

When you're building, you can change that description prior to entering the
lot I believe. Place the empty lot, then click on it. Change the details
when the window pops up and then enter the lot to build. You may be able to
change it after you build too by exiting the lot & then clicking on it. I
don't build community lots often, but I know it's one of those two ways.

I kind of wanted to do it as an afterthought as I often mess around
with stuff, including lots already on the game. I found all those
groceries in one place boring and converted half the store into a
clothing store, so i thought it would be nice for the blurb to reflect
that. i tried clicking on individual lots but there seems to be no
option to rename or change descriptions

Do you want to change the name or the blurb? Just click on the offending
'build something here' dialog and type in something new if it is the blurb
that annoys. If it is the name you will need to move the lot in and out of
the house bin as lot renaming is only available on placement.

I think you can change the name if you first put it in the house bin and
then put it back in the neighborhood, the game should ask if you want to
keep or change the name.

Thanks, I just read that online :o ) What about the description? Plus,
would putting it in the house bin remove all its objects? That would
cause an awful lot of problems

Everything stays put when you move into and out of the bin (even people
inside the house stay there) but the description can be changed just by
clicking on it.

Just click on the blurb and you can change it - at ANY time.

Best wishes
