Write an Elevator Pitch / Tagline

Note:

We are closing this domain naming thread. It is asking the entirely wrong question. See this blog post for details: Domain Names: Wrong Question

We're going to keep the name math.stackexchange.com. But we WILL be setting up redirects from the more "popular" domains names (e.g. seasonedadvice.com to cooking.stackexchange.com, basicallymoney.com to money.stackexchange.com, and others as we go through the list).

New question: "Write and Elevator Pitch / Tagline!"

Click here to contribute ideas and vote.

[original message text below]


Note: Please answer this question asking us to describe in brief what our community is about, rather than suggesting domain names. (— Isaac♦ 2010-10-05)


Any suggestions?

    $\begingroup$ @bmargulies: See the equivalent question on another stackexchange site. There is a quote from Joel that disagrees with you. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ btw, is .com necessary? what about .info? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @mau: I would prefer .com over the other choices, except in the specific cases where edu, gov, org, mil, or net is justified, and I don't think any of those apply here. I would be opposed to info, biz, pro, and most of the country-specific TLDs. This is mostly an issue of reputation: many shady sites exist under such classifications, and few legitimate ones. A large majority of reputable sites exist under the .com TLD. A StackExchange/StackOverflow blog post outlines some guidelines for naming. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ To be honest, reading through the list of proposals I find them all waaaaaaay worse than the current "math.stackexchange.com"! Do we really need to change the domain name? $\endgroup$ Sep 14, 2010 at 16:22
  • $\begingroup$ (in fact, if someone managed to get hold of exchange.com, then math.exchange.com would be quite ideal...) $\endgroup$ Sep 14, 2010 at 16:23
  • $\begingroup$ OK: it is pretty far in the future. I think it is safe to say that nobody's votes, answers, or edits to this proposal will be meaningful anymore. I am going to lock the thread for historical significance. (Note that, contrary to what the text in the lock says, this was a perfectly on topic question at the time it was asked.) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ If we could get something like $\forall Q \exists A$, it may have a sense. Well, actually in that case $\forall \delta \exists \varepsilon$ would be nicer IMO. But this not being possible, it simply looks nonsense. $\endgroup$ Aug 5, 2010 at 14:26

    $\begingroup$ I suggested the written-out form "ForAllQThereExistsA" because, although Unicode is allowed in domains, it's not obvious how to enter it into a browser. Not that writing it all out is terribly convenient. I would be on board with the Unicode as the "official" domain, with "AQEA.com" and "ForAllQThereExistsA.com" re-directing there. Best of all worlds. $\endgroup$
