Possible Domain Names for Methods Discussion Board

*NOTE*: On 2018-05-19 Frank and Chris Lindsell declared datamethods.org the winner and Frank has registered this domain name.

Edit the space to the left of each name to increment the vote count, and/or add suggestions for other names at the end, in the same format. Vote for no more than two choices. Top choices will be tested nationally. To each of the potential names we will likely use a domain suffix of .org .

In what follows, q means "quantitative" and r means "research". If such abbreviations are used they will be defined at the top page of the discussion board.

No matter which URL we choose we can have a prominent tag line like 'design, measure, analyze, interpret'.

Names should be inviting to non-statisticians, including clinical and translational researchers, epidemiologists, and machine learning practitioners. We want to invite world-wide participation, so we don't want to include Vanderbilt in the name.
