One of the tasks that we must complete in the beta is answering the 7 essential meta questions. I'm creating these meta questions here for us to work on.
We should begin collecting ideas and suggestions for our "elevator pitch. Create and upload your suggestions as answers, and let the voting begin!
Imagine you’ve just gotten on an elevator with a friendly stranger. You have precisely one floor to describe your community to them. What would you say? The elevator pitch is a brief sentence that describes what your site is about. Every word counts!
Once decided, it can be sliced and diced to form:
- the tagline
- the motto
- the blurb under the logo
- a convenience redirect “nickname” for the site
- perhaps eventually the domain name in some form
(Due to a variety of practical difficulties with domain names, we prefer to de-emphasize domain name selection. Most sites will retain their topic.stackexchange.com names indefinitely.)
The highest voted answers would be the prime candidates. I guess the final decision could be made by the moderators or in an announced chat meeting, but I don't know.
