It will be a much improved version of the current,, and

The team is interested in your help in naming this section. How would you refer to, or search for, a place on that houses a collection such as the one just described? If you have any ideas please post them in the comments below.

    Wow! Sure glad I’m not going to be a judge. There have been so many excellent choices already submitted.
    If we are referring a non-member friend to the site, a NAME would be easier to remember. My favorite would be Mormon Sharing Center. But I also think Mormon Resource Center would be good. There are so many combinations available. Once you are in the site, then the catagories need to be broken down further. I’ll be excited to see the finished result.

    I think we should keep it simple and call it . There is no need to make this complicated. If we do, we’ll draw away it’s focus, and make it hard for people to remember, and share. And we certainly don’t want that to happen.

    The word media brings with it some negative connotations. Perhaps taking the high road and making it easier to differentiate for the less technical audience would be good.

    I don’t care what they name it.

    Just *please*, for the love of everything, call in Special Curriculum and NorthTemple and make it accessible (captions/subtitles, HTML—not Flash—video, [where available] ASL versions of video) and scalable/responsive (it’s a browser!, it’s an iPad!, it’s an Android!). We’re going to use this in Sunday School/PH/RS and the living room, not huddled around the Pentium I stashed away in the clerk’s office.

    I don’t really think that the church is going to waste extra money in getting a new domain name. We’ve seen that in the disbanding of

    I think which would probably be redirected to would be perfectly fine. Of course, its always accessible via the menu which can now be accessed from any page.

  • Allen Blodgett March 7, 2011, 8:10 am

    Just out of curiosity how far along is it?

  • Larry Richman March 7, 2011, 8:46 am

    Allen, it should be up in a month or two.

    Regarding the change from to, it really didn’t have anything to do with wasting extra money. Domain names are cheap. It had to do with branding. Looking at the domain, you don’t really know if it’s an official Church site or some commercial site selling products to the LDS market. Whereas, is obviously an official Church site, since it’s part of the site.

    I agree with the others: LDS Media, and the standard and That also makes translation simpler for other languages and is a cognate already in several languages, which makes achieving correct search results easier regardless of the searcher’s native language.

    If we’re going for a sub-brand, though, then borrow from the Mormon Messages equity and launch Mormon Media. A simple piggyback and tie-in.

    To find these types of materials on the site, I search for the specific type of media I need, by name (i.e. pictures, music, speeches mp3, etc.).

    if i was in a meeting house, I would go to the library to find stuff.
    so if i was on the site, i would want to goto the library. i.e.
