We used to be "The Premier Science and Technology Community", and now we are "Physics Help and Math Help".

I don't like it. No sir, I don't like it at all. It makes it sound like we are all about homework help, which is not accurate. There is some top-level stuff going on here, and I think the forum subtitle should reflect that.

Let's take a vote!

Maybe the change is to add keywords to the title to attract more searchers??

yes, well it's all a matter of who we want to attract and who we don't.

I voted to go back to "The Premier Science and Technology Community". Of course, this doesn't capture the full flavor of the PFs either, but I don't think any subtitle really can.

BTW, the second choice was really funny .

I voted to go back to the old one, too. But I just thought of another one:

Physics Forums - Physics from alpha particles to Z bosons.

Eh, maybe not...

edit: Science Forums has a funny one.

Science Forums - More degrees than dates. LOL

http://www.scienceforums.net

edit: Oops, that's not what theirs is. They have:

Science Forums - The Internet's Best Science Forum!

This means war!

Actually tomas has the right idea. I changed it to become more search engine friendly. The title is extremely powerful in terms of site rank. Our old title didn't yield any useful keywords that people search for. However, if you search for physics help on google, you'll see physics forums on the first page. It's all about picking the right keywords that people search alot for and has little competition.

didn't this forum originate as a homework help forum?

Well, actualy I thought science, technology and community
were pretty streightforward. I perosnally support going back
to the old title as well. Also, Tom's proposed title would
definitly not show up in most searches... Not to mention
that Z bosons would sure scare me away...

Live long and prosper.

Sure people search alot for science, technology and community, but at the same time 50,000 other websites are targeting those keywords, so it gives us little chance. I must say I love Toms's titles from the creative side though.

Greg: Can't you cheat a little? If you include another slogan on the actual graphics of the Logo, then it would appear but not be logged by the search engine.

if there were a fight, and physicsforums did try to beat up, say, sciforums, then what side do you fight for if you re a regular poster at both!?

i think they outnumber us at sciforums. you guys probably need me more.

it s gonna be a brawl!

Fighting is the last resort of the stupid or the needy.
We are niether.

Maybe you should visit your local sports club or something
and let it out of your system. :wink:

Peace and long life.

I'm bringing this topic back from the dead. Propose a clever slogan for PF and it'll be included in a new logo I'm making. I'll pick the ones I like best and then create a poll.
