I like this one, because that's what we are in a nutshell. If conveys the ideas of community and sharing, even though those could be more explicit. Maybe a little turn of phrase by someone (obviously) more inspired than me...

On another (unrelated) note, I have nothing against quotations per se, but I'm a little tired of seeing them everywhere on the web. I think we can come up with something without that kind of help.

How about something reasonably recent: "I know words. I have the best words"

(too political? too ironic? too trade-mark-infringey?)

It's almost too funny to moderate *prays nobody escalates or reports it so comment need not be deleted*

Many (or most) forget that the Wikia even exists. So to have these buttons across the top of the Forum would very significantly improve the visibility (and likely the use and contributions) to the Wikia and the Blog. And it would help keep members (especially new members).

As for a new tagline, I would like to see something that claims we have the best language learning forum, the best advice, and the best community on the whole Internet. When new users see those "new links" to the Blog and the Wikia, they will be convinced. :D

I normally don't quote myself but in this case, I'd like to raise the same issue again about us getting visible links to our Wikia and Blog. That post got 12 "likes" indicating quite a few people think it is a good idea. I pointed out later that I don't personally know how to help technically on this issue. But I am willing to help in some way, or learn how to help, because I think these two links are very important for helping current members, encouraging participation, and attracting and keeping new members. What can I do to help? What can "we" do to get these links?
