eko40, no way your thought are ramblings... or we ramble the same path !

You must be reading my mind ! Today I’ve started writing something about segmenting into subgroups, not finished yet but I had titled it "Let’s fine tune MODx targets and markets". I have put a lot of thought in this and I am eager to share my ideas with you since you seem to have a pretty good take on things smiley I’ll try to speed up and post this quickly.

I share your point of view about the experienced target bit, and the contradiction (or at least apparent one, you’ll see when I post my thing) between ease of use vs experienced target is something that came up recently, and French Frog gave us some feedback about why he drops MODx (sorry, it’s in french) which is quite enlightening in this respect.

(...) However as mentioned before, and one thing that currently creates confusion with etomite, what is the product and who is it meant for. It becomes apparent from a discussion I had with etomite that the latter is more a product for experienced programmers even though the information about it on its website is talking about its ease of use and thus attracts people like me.

It’s not good enough just to state Web-Developers or Programmers. It would be useful to explain in very precise terms who would benefit from ModX and probably segment it into sub-groups. The name in this case will follow function and probably be full of "energy". Just my rambling thoughts on this.

Gist means according to the dictionary:
1) The central idea; the essence. See Synonyms: substance (also content [sic]).
2) Law. The grounds for action in a suit

Is ModX not the essence or substance of many a website?
I like that, instant slogan...

"GistX -> get the Gist of it...and more"]]>

But I think the idea behind asking alternative questions is to get the customer to think in non-hampered ways to discribe what they want named.

So eko40 I guess you are suggesting:
site+(word) ?

I like the words that you came up with!

cola, pits, glow, dust


Let's keep the words flowing!]]>

sitecola (com, org and net are available)

When compared to autosports: WikiPedia states "In auto sport, the PITS is the part of a race track where pit stops are conducted". The following could be used.

SitePits or WebPits (com, org and net are available)
(also available websitepitstop and onsitepitstop but both are too long)

When comparing to moods and appearances:

Siteglow (com, org and net are available)

When comparing to "materials" then e.g.

SiteDust (com, org and net are available)]]>

I earlier proposed sitesystemX as the current etomite is more a site management than a content management system but if we had a more concrete user in mind then we could focus on the interests of these users whcih opens up a lot of venues for naming a product such as Modx.

Just my rambling thoughts on this.]]>
