Whether on purpose or simply because there is a need to differentiate,
most people refer to this as the Fedora Community Portal, at least that
I've seen.

Maybe it should have its own domain name, as opposed to what is
currently a pretty convoluted domain name for what is a really awesome
webapp?

Yeh, I've heard a lot from folks who want to use the app and can never figure out how to get to it. "Fedora Community" is really hard to find in a search, too, as Mel pointed out. Really hard.

In IRC yesterday I did some brainstorming with other Red Hatters on a replacement name for Fedora Community (the app), we came up with the following list of possibilities:

boardwalk
square
plaza
zocalo

One of these would probably be more searchable and could lead to a better domain name for the app. The community sites such as ph.fedoracommunity.org would make better use of the name because for that you'd search for 'phillipines fedora' not 'fedora community' so it'd be easy to find, and the domain name there is more about association with the commnunity than naming & findability.

I apologize for getting a little overly upset about the work that was put into marketing / branding Fedora Community the app. I think now if something has to be renamed it's a good opportunity to rename the app since we've already heard from users it's hard to find because of its name.
