Our lovely chatroom is currently sitting there with a terribly generic name: Software Recommendations.
What should we name it?
I tried to make a joke about
swrecs in reference to Sean Connery on Jeopardy saying "schwords" (like
swords) for "S Words" when talking about the category of questions pertaining to "S Words". I failed. Couldn't think of anything pithy -- all the pith got stolen by Robert's answer above. Seriously, "Software Rex"? That's a whole mouthful of pith. ;x
I was thinking of the extremely lame, pun-free name
Word of Mouth. I have to explain it for it to make any sense, so it's probably bad, but once you get it, it kind of tickles. A little. Maybe.
So there are often surveys on registration forms or purchase forms for software online, which ask "How did you hear about us?" or "How did you hear about X product?", and one of the choices is "Word of Mouth".
It would seem fitting that people would hear about their software literally in the "Word of Mouth" channel about this site, or from the site itself, and then go buy that software.
Not funny, right? Oh well. I tried.
