The name is bit mickey mouse, plus wont it affect search engine results?
It's a word that no one will type.


heh, well i didn't pick the name . actually the name originally emerged when the late Daniel H. was still around. it's lingered. one of the big reasons for change to was to get away from the initials E-U, for obvious reasons for anyone across the pond.

as for search engine results, it may in the short-term but with proper SEO built-in and the forum constantly being tagged with the term 'Elektron' we should be ok. On one level you have good basic SEO - proper information architecture, tags, etc. the other level is tagging auto - tagging keywords per new items and for each forum entry, etc.

i think we'll be good. again, not entirely my decision, so we'll see...

1 question: Will Elektron now be active in any moderating?

No. All moderating will still come from us lowly suckers who do it for free . There is no current plan, that I know of, of Elektron becoming more prominent in their role on the new forum. They have always sought to keep some distance between themselves on the community. We may see more information filtering out but it will likely be pushed to myself or one of the moderators. Like it has been of late.

Good luck

Thanks man!

I just happened across the old Elektronauts thread recently, so for some old-skool thread action here it is:

I don't mind being an Elektronaut rather than an Elektron-User, as mickey mouse-y as that sounds! Can't wait for the new forum. Thanks Actuel.

Re:Elektron Users News/Changes!!! 6 Years ago
wow actuel, I already have mad respect for you, but now its x100. thank you so much for this. I like the name "elektronauts". I read that old post where there was a suggested name change from "elektron-users" to "elektronauts" or "elektron friends". Both are cool IMHO. can't wait!
