Nick asked: Do you like our site's current name? If not, what do you propose and how will you go about making it happen?
jcolebrand answered: I am not overly happy with our current site name, because I think it detracts from the NoSQL crowd joining in freely, but I think the time has come and gone for branding changes, until we get much larger and am happy to keep things as they are. I would, however, love to see some better community marketing.
DTest answered: I think the name is fine and is one of the things that attracted me to the site to begin with. I don't necessarily like that the domain is a subdomain, but unfortunately don't have a good alternative.
mrdenny answered: I'm ok with the site's name. I think that it keeps the focus on the set and tuning of the various database platforms.
Lazer answered: Related to names, I dont like the decision that only expert db questions are supposed to be asked here. Its like go to SO if you have an easy one and come here, if you have a difficult dba specific one. I think 'Administrators' word is a bit distracting, but then again thats what differentiates us from SO, its a deadlock situation, i think
Jack Douglas answered: I like the current name but I have a hankering for fullouterjoin.com because "full outer joins are esoteric enough ... and the 'full' kind of implies 'full fat' or 'full blooded/bodied' which is what this site is: a place for grown up database professionals and those who need their help"
Nick answered: "Database Administrators" has served us well so far, but it threatens to limit our audience. I've proposed a name change but would obviously solicit community approval to execute something like that.
Nick continued: As @jcolebrand said, it may be too late to change everything, but I wouldn't consider that an answered question. I want dba.se to really turn into something that all database professionals go to--NoSQL and data warehouse designers especially.
