Thumbs up Website Name


I belive that the website needs a new <title> ala "tagline."

I'm not sure exactly what, mabe everyone could suggest alternatives and Jeremy can pick the one he likes. "where Linux newbies come for help" while it does feel apropriate at times doesn't adequatly describe the whole LQ.org experience IM(never)HO.

This is a newbie friendly site, so I think the name is appropiate IMHO.

well i think that things like that are up to jeremy to decide on and not members, but if someone can come up with a corker jeremy might consider taking it on board.

Sure it's up to Jeremy but if someone came up with one that just "fit" he might think about it, something like:

LinuxQuestions.org - All the questions, half the answers

LinuxQuestions.org - Opening up the Linux world

LinuxQuestions.org - Don't mess with acid_kewpie!

Darin,
As always I am open to suggestions. If someone has a tagline that they think is better feel free to post it.

Could we vote for our favs once a list is made?

I do not think that name does the site any justice at all to be honest.

I didnt mean to be offencive, just that there's always likely to be someone who doesnt like a suggestion, and in this case it happens to be the admin. Oh well... I guess that's the end of that idea.

it's just that that "suggestion" blatantly implies that we don't give enough answers. how on earth is that a good reflection on the site?

Honestly that was suggested as as example only, a little braindump to get some good ones coming in.

I just thought something different could change the first impression of the site to more match what it is, I'm still relativly new so maybe some veterans could suggest something.

The reason I suggest a change is that although newbies can and do come here for help, some of the forums do hold more advanced threads, the tagline out to reflect that or at least not imply that newbies are the only/primary audience.

i'm waiting for someone to post a suggestion where everyone says, "oh yes! that fits perfectly!" including Jeremy Anyone got something like that?

I took it to be humourous, and so would make a newbie less nervous about asking question on this site.

Half is better than none, and does LQ have all the answers?

This is an interesting one.

Darin has a few issues not just with this site, but Linux in general. He must be writing his own better OS.

I'm in favour of something along the lines of the .NET tagline "Go Dot Net?"

"Got Linux? Got Questions?" or even "Making Linux Eas[y][ier]" or going for the esoteric "Empowering the End-user with Linux Answers"

You know, I used to work in PR. Does it show?

The more I think about this the more I like the idea of changing the tagline. That tagline is well over two years old and the site is really not for newbies only. Does anyone else have any ideas? Maybe "LinuxQuestions.org - you have questions, we have answers" or "LinuxQuestions.org - where people go to talk about Linux" (not really *crazy* about either of those, but you get the idea).
