Blanket Name for OpenCaching?
« am: 16. August 2011, 16:59:23 »
I understand there has been efforts to investigate actually unifying the sites, but I also wonder if we should look at a real "branding" of the global OpenCaching community.  Up to now, I usually use one of the following....

"The Real OpenCaching / OC"
"The International OpenCaching Community"
"The OpenCaching That is Not Garmin"

It would be nice to have one name / identity to use to, at least, figuratively unite the sites.  Perhaps, "OpenCaching Global" or "OpenCaching United" or something.  Then perhaps we could have branded gear that could be made available to promote the community as a whole.

Using "OpenCaching EU" to refer to the whole community, doesn't seem to make it seem to include the US, Japan, (the upcoming) Canada, or other future sites outside Europe.

Thoughts?

I have used that, too, come to think of it.  It IS the URL for these forums, as well.

It is also much more concise than, "The Group of OpenCaching Sites That are Nation Based and Not Connected to Garmin."

Cloud ist grad so'n Mode-Buzzword...

Da wird in ein paar Jahren keiner mehr drüber reden.

"Nachhaltiger" ist da "Netzwerk", "Community" oder ähnliches

What Jörg ment when he wrote into this international thread were the buzzwords:
- "cloud" is right now very cool, but will soon be out of its hype,
- More sustainable would be something with parts like "network", "community" or a related term.

My proposal to use the name for the site OC.com name "GarminCaching" instead Opencaching.com :-)

Zitat
- "cloud" is right now very cool, but will soon be out of its hype

OK, then we should take
opencaching+, the next generation of geocaching

The "+" is also very popular now,
and I doubt it will ever die out.
Furthermore we show that oc has stepped to a new evolution level
with more sites, new merged code basis and synchronized nodes (**)


(**) hopefully soon
