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!"

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?

  • $\begingroup$ btw, is .com necessary? what about .info? $\endgroup$ – mau Aug 4 '10 at 10:36
  • $\begingroup$ @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. $\endgroup$ – Larry Wang Aug 7 '10 at 2:57

    $\begingroup$ 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? $\endgroup$ – Mariano Suárez-Álvarez Sep 14 '10 at 16:22
  • $\begingroup$ (in fact, if someone managed to get hold of exchange.com, then math.exchange.com would be quite ideal...) $\endgroup$ – Mariano Suárez-Álvarez Sep 14 '10 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.) $\endgroup$ – Alexander Gruber Jan 14 '15 at 2:53

MathUnderflow.com

Taken.

I'm not sure this is actually a good name, but it's certainly how the MathOverflow people are calling it for now.

Since at the moment, nobody can see Mariano's comment, which is buried at the bottom, I have reposted it here, since I think it should be seen:

Well, no one complains that "undergraduates" is demeaning because it means "not good enough (yet?)"...

    $\begingroup$ It's a decent (amusing) name/pun, but it does sort of give a negative impression unless you know where it's coming from. $\endgroup$ – Noldorin Jul 21 '10 at 12:12

    $\begingroup$ No! This name gives too much of an impression that this site is for people who "aren't good enough" for MathOverflow. $\endgroup$ – Michael Lugo Jul 21 '10 at 13:06

    $\begingroup$ But "undergraduates" have a clear relationship to "graduates" and we (as a whole on the site) are not yet decided on our relationship to MO. There is clearly a set of people who believe that the relationship exists to make MathUnderflow an appropriate name and there is also clearly a set of people who believe that the relationship does not exist in that way. $\endgroup$ – Isaac Jul 29 '10 at 23:49

Alas, our British users may not be too happy with the name mathexchange since they write "math" as "maths" which, when replaced in said name, leads to a name one wouldn't want for the site.
