Who are We? Why are we here? What is our purpose in life? Now that we are moving onto Public Beta (Yay! Team!), we need to define who we are and what our purpose is.
From the 'Real Essential Questions of Every Beta':
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.
This helps in visualising what your community is about and what it is going to be. If you have trouble describing your community in one-line, then its a sign that the community needs to take a relook at its scope and purpose.
Here is the initial summary I developed for the Area51 Proposal:
Bioacoustics Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for people interested in the studies of non-human animal sounds and the impacts of sounds on animals.
We need the community to consider how to re-examine this 'elevator pitch'.
Please provide an alternative as an ANSWER
Please provide discussion points on any answer as a COMMENT
Please use VOTES to show your approval (downvotes for STRONG disapproval).
(I will put the initial elevator pitch as one option, but very much welcome comment on it!!)
