The new Wordlab site has been up and running for a week now, and so far so good. The action has been great on the new forums! You can access the Naming Projects forum right from the Home page; access the other two forums (Taglines & SlogansWordlab Issues) from the Forums page or the sidebar links. Please see this forum post, How to Use the Wordlab Forum, for instructions on how to get started, plus Pro Tips on how best to make use of the forum.

And take these words of wisdom to heart: Please strive to be generous with name and tagline/slogan suggestions for your fellow Wordlabbers. Often, even if you are stuck trying to name your own company or product, you might have great ideas for somebody else’s project, and helping them may unblock your path to the right name for your own project.
