JustinY asked What should our FAQ contain? This is one of the 7 essential meta questions that we must answer in order to form a healthy community.
One of the items that needs to go in the FAQ is the "Elevator Pitch" from the 7 Essential Questions:
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. Every word counts!
In Area 51, there were a lot of ideas discussed for what the definition of the site should be. Here is one that I proposed:
Q&A site for family historians, such as those who research and compile family histories, databases, birth records, marriage records, death records, and other identifying information. This site is for those who wish to increase their knowledge of these processes.
However, the elevator pitch is a single sentence. Something short, quick; something that will convince the stranger in the elevator to check out this community.
