We talked this over pretty thoroughly internally, and we feel there are a couple important things to point out here:
- We feel the addition of "& Art" is misleading. This site, for all its strengths, is not and never was meant to be about sculpture, crochet, or tile mosaics. Is it about elements that relate to those fields? Absolutely -- color choice, materials contrast and complements, and even arrangement would (theoretically) fit in on this site, as long as we were talking about the visual aspect of design work in the question's context. However, sculpture technique, kiln temperature regulation, and yarn gauge comparisons don't have a real place here, but having “Art” in the title would lead to people asking those kinds of questions on your site.
- The problem you're trying to solve -- making this site not about just the software side of design work -- isn't going to be instantly solved by a name change. I'm not going to sugarcoat it for you: it sucks, but changing how people (especially drive-by people) use this site takes work and effort and time. You've had a phenomenal year, with amazing growth and expansion in that time. Take advantage of it! Build on the scope expansion project yourselves, ask the types of questions you want to see on here. Do you want more questions about graphic novel page layouts? Ask them yourself, especially if you already know the answer.
Look, I pay close attention to this site, and I am very sympathetic with what you’re all struggling with here. However, trust me: changing your site's name is treating a symptom, not the cause of that frustration.
I know you all feel strongly about this, so I would like to propose an alternative: instead of adding words to your site title, remove the word "graphic” from your site name. There's a possibility you're going to get some questions from the esoteric ends of the design spectrum (interior design! furniture design! fashion design! manicure color layout! papercraft!) but you're also going to get some of the other things you do want to see (textiles design, page layout, font design/typography, color theory, etc) as well. If this is something you all consider worth pursuing, start a new meta post and make your arguments and position(s) just as clear as you did here.
Either way, I urge you all to redirect your efforts from picking a name to, instead, asking and answering the kinds of questions you want to see more of on the site.
I have full confidence in this community to rally together and continue to push and expand this site beyond "Adobe Q&A". You've done it before, and you can do it again.
