Write an Elevator Pitch / Tagline


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 cooking.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 an Elevator Pitch / Tagline!"

Click here to contribute ideas and vote.

[original message text below]

Post your ideas for a dot-com domain name for this website, which captures the spirit and intent of the site, namely:

{name} is for cooks, chefs, and anyone who can make a dish that can objectively be described as “mean”.

Please follow these guidelines:

  • Check to see if the domain is taken or squatted before making the name suggestion. Squatted and taken names, however clever, are not helpful. You can use whois.net to check availability.
  • Post one domain per answer. This makes the voting process much easier. If domains are very similar (e.g. "game" and "games"), they can be in the same answer.
  • Make sure the domain wasn't already suggested. To search within this question, use a search query such as: inquestion:1 "example.com" replacing example.com with the domain to search for.

    How exactly do we expect these domains to remain untaken if they get popular here? Is meta. currently visible only to the closed beta? If so, I guess we're probably OK.

  • Jeff said that this needs to be discussed only during the closed beta, and decided upon before the end of it.

  • does squatted mean registered to the likes of godaddy.com? Or only things which come up as available in the whois.net search valid?

  • What's with all the xoverflow.com's? Commented Jul 17, 2010 at 16:12
  • @Brendan Long The original site of this kind was called "Stackoverflow" and was a programming Q&A site. From this a few other sites were spawned, before "Stack Exchange" was created, which is the means by which this site was created by the community.

  • @Edd, I know about StackOverflow, I'm just wondering why 90% of the suggestions are almost exact copies of that name. The whole point of "the new stack exchange" is that each site has its own identity. Commented Jul 20, 2010 at 23:53
  • @Brendan Long - I know. Personally I'm not going to vote for any stack or overflow (except maybe waffleoverflow, assuming it stands no chance of actually winning)

    That includes an American spelling. Best to avoid to reduce confusion.

  • I both like this, and wanted to do something nice for you since you created the least liked suggestion on this thread.
