From the The 7 Essential Meta Questions of Every Beta:

What’s the “elevator pitch” for our site?

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.)

Naming is hard — really hard. But if you can come up with a sensible elevator pitch for your community, it’s a great starting point.
