Community Name Guidelines

A good name for your community will help people to quickly understand what your community is about, and if it is a match for them. With that in mind, here's our suggestions for what makes a good community name:

  • Keep it short. As a rule of thumb, you don't want it to be more than three or four words long. Names that are too long are hard to read, and may be automatically truncated.
  • Include a topic and location. Having a focused community helps you attract and retain participants. If you want to have events over a diverse set of topics or multiple locations, create multiple different communities.
  • Avoid keyword stuffing. For example, don't name your community something like e.g., "Tokyo Developers Meetup (Ruby, Python, JavaScript, PHP, SQL)". Including a bunch of keywords makes your community look low-quality, making it less likely people will join. Instead, select topics for your community so that we'll automatically promote your community to the right people.
