Help Name Our Website


#101

If I were to be bad, I’d register them all.


#102

coders.com


#103

I’m sure this isn’t what you were going for but I’ve always thought it’d be funny to name a WTF type website:

code-tarded.com

Codetarded is the term I made up for smart people who code very badly (code + retarded). It’s certainly not P.C. and could be offensive but I still laugh when I think of it.

=D


#104

dunno Jeff, perhaps if we knew a teensy weensy bit more about what the site was about we might be better placed to pick a more appropriate name …


#105

“Hack”, “hacker” and “hacking” have too many negative connotations attached to them for the average person - also those words attract script-kiddies like rotting meat attracts flies.

I reckon you should go for something catchy and meaningless. Something that sticks in peoples heads. Something that won’t sound dreadfully outdated in 5 years time. (Could Markov chains help? lol)

Oh, and “programmer2programmer” sounds like a geek dating site. Eww.


#106

devcodeo.com


#107

Haha Rich, I like codingwhore.com that would be a very accurate name for a site that has free code/coding info and forums for developer…if it is a pay/member site then it would have to be codinghooker.com


#108

not Rich…I meant Michael G


#109

I think gosub10 would be the best. It’s a classic.

My favourite is stackoverflow. It just sounds quite good. privatevoid is also pretty good, but my fear is that it’s too language oriented, unless of course the website is language oriented.


#111

HelloWorld must be gone, surely.


#112

What do you know, I voted for the correct answer, along with 24% majority! Stackoverflow.com. It’s the only one that really sticks out as a catchy name, the others are forgettable, or downright bad.


#113

Unfortunate domain names?

I read fellowhackers.com as “fellatio whackers”.


#114

I voted for privatevoid, but stackoverflow is winning. :frowning:

Everyone who’s read a newspaper in the last 10 years knows what a stack overflow is.


#115

#116

I like Michael G’s idea, or some variant, like codingwho.es


#117

Two suggestions for picking domains:

  1. http://www.bustaname.com/
  2. Write your shortlist of ~5 on paper. Show to friend. Take paper away. Ask friend to recall the names and see what they can remember. Repeat.

heheh yea, I agree with “M”, only you can put a name, cuz you know what this is all about.

We can only scream geeky names.


#119

Jeff,

horrorcoders.com :

But stackoverflow sounds good too.
