Since Ask Fedora and Fedora Discussion are merging, is this the opportunity to change the name of the site to the Fedora Forum? The alliteration is just too good and accurate that I couldn’t leave it off the table!
I know it’s not a high priority at all, but I figure it was worth mentioning since there will be a lot of changes going on at the same time. We can use the new name to highlight that a lot of changes have come and that the site is not exactly the same as it was. Like a grand reopening of sorts.
There are two pieces of historical baggage that I think makes “Fedora Forum” mildly political:
There is already a very old community running a Fedora Forum, as @guiltydoggy pointed out. If we changed the name, we would probably want to do it in consultation with the folks who run that community. If both Forums exist at the same time, I think that will count against us for search engine points.
I feel like we have been careful in distinguishing this Discourse site as something different from a traditional forum. We have wanted to adapt this Discourse forum similar to mailing lists, to make it more inviting for folks who have an email-driven workflow. Calling this the Fedora Forum instead of Fedora Discussion doesn’t change that much, but maybe it pushes us further away from the simple mailing list replacement that we have tried to position Discourse as for the last few years? I could be overthinking this one too.
