It's been quite a while since our chat room started ( WordPress Answers Chat ) and it seems it was named near randomly

Because it's what Mark called it when he imported it I believe

Thomas McDonald

I feel StopPress never quite had connection with community. Also *Press is overused and lame.

Let's rename it!

Answer with: name idea

  • one per answer
  • format as heading
  • (down)vote those you (dis)like

Note that tag line on other hand is quite fine (Where humor doesn’t work.) and, if I remember right, was produced later by community. However if you feel there is better tagline to go with your title idea - do include it.

Optionally: add tagline to go with name

  • format as subheading

Please format it as subheading to distinguish tag line suggestions from things you just add for explanation/context.

PS there might be reusable ideas with historical attachment in What should our domain name be? however lead "queryposts" choice went on to have different life.

*please note - Freedom may not be used without permission

  • maybe shorten to "Victim Support and Therapy", too bulky (also maybe Wictim ? :) – Rarst May 22 '13 at 22:04
  • @rarst Good idea, fairly sure we wouldn't be allowed to use the word "WordPress" anyway. Freedom! – anu May 22 '13 at 22:12

At least it's about getting people together.

    I really like the idea. I would slightly change this to query_people(); or query_people, though. – tfrommen May 23 '13 at 5:46

What about ChatPress ?
