This page is a record of work and discussions from when we were choosing a subtitle for the logo. Please don't leave comments on this page, as they probably will not be noticed by many people.

In the end we just went with "APPROPEDIA," as can be seen under the logo at top left. If you have other ideas, these will always be welcome - please share them at the Village Pump.



Subtitle[edit]

Rather than "The Free Encyclopedia" on the top left of every page, how about something like:

   * A living library of appropriate technology
   * A living library of appropriate technology and development issues
   * Appropriate technology, development and sustainability 

While I always like to be comprehensive, something short and snappy would be best for a subtitle... --Singkong2005 t - c 23:19, 28 June 2006 (PDT) (from Village pump)

I propose:
   * A collaborative how-to guide to building a better world for all
   or
   * A collaborative guide on How to build a better world
   or
   * A collaborative guide to building a better world

Isn't that what we're trying to do from a "destination" perspective? That is, aren't appropriate and sustainable technologies and development techniques a means to that end? Well, really I was just aiming for snappy --Curtbeckmann

List of possible subtitles[edit]

  • A living library of appropriate technology --Lonny
  • A living library of appropriate technology and development issues --Singkong2005 (now known as Chriswaterguy)
  • Appropriate technology, development and sustainability --Singkong2005 (now known as Chriswaterguy)
  • A collaborative how-to guide to building a better world for all --Curtbeckmann
  • A collaborative guide on How to build a better world --Curtbeckmann
  • A collaborative guide to building a better world --Curtbeckmann
    • I like either this one, or just "A guide to building a better world" - simple and clear. --Chriswaterguy · talk 21:22, 26 March 2007 (PDT)
  • A living library of sustainability and enhancement (I do not like this one, but I want to address people in poor conditions feeling like sustainability is about sustaining their poor conditions). --Lonny
  • A living library / collaborative guide for sustainable enhancement CurtB
  • Come and share practical ideas for sustainable progress (I like this because it appeals more to the community instead of describing the site as an object. More ideas like this?) CurtB
  • The site for sharing practical ideas on sustainable progress CurtB
  • The site for enabling sustainable development through ideas CurtB
  • Enabling sustainable development by sharing practical ideas CurtB
  • Sharing practical wisdom to enable sustainable development CurtB (my fave so far)
  • Co-creating sustainable solutions. Lonny
  • AT CoLib: the appropriate technology cooperative library (where ATCoLib would be a new proposed name for Appropedia, see village talk, 10:36, 6 January 2011 (UTC))
