At our office hours call today, we came up with a new tagline for SourceCred, namely:
SourceCred: A Reputation Protocol for Open Collaboration
I’m quite pleased with this; it is both general and descriptive, and I don’t think we could take any words out without losing important meaning. This replaces previous taglines like “shine a light on open-source contributors” or “recognize people for the value they create”, all of which were vaguer and communicated some intention/goals, but didn’t communicate what SourceCred is.
Of course, pull requests accepted–I welcome any suggestions on even better taglines.
Thanks to @rzurrer for describing SourceCred as a “peer-reviewed reputation protocol” which really got the discussion going, and to @mzargham for suggesting “open collaboration” in lieu of “open endeavors”.
