The current welcome banner reads:
Welcome to Q&A for passionate videogamers on all platforms -- check out the FAQ!
This sounds a bit awkward and forced to me:
- is "passionate" really necessary (do we have a problem with unpassionate videogamers asking questions)?
- is "on all platforms" really necessary?
The goal of the welcome banner is to explain in a few words what the site is. On all the Stack Exchange sites, this follows the format of "Welcome to Q&A for...", which seems to work on most sites:
- Stack Overflow: Welcome to Q&A for professional and enthusiast programmers
- Server Fault: Welcome to Q&A for system administrators and desktop support professionals
- Super User: Welcome to Q&A for computer enthusiasts and power users
These work because they identify a "tribe", and I immediately know whether I'm part of that tribe of not ("I am a professional programmer", "I am not a system administrator").
The problem with "Q&A for passionate videogamers on all platforms" is that I don't really feel like "a passionate videogamer on all platforms".
So what's a better tagline / description?
