Hi Scott,

I’m a bit skeptical about “Bugs”. While it may increase bug reports, it doesn’t communicate that they can also file feature requests and ideas. Github also uses “Issues”, e.g. look here: https://github.com/LeaVerou/dabblet

Cheers,
Lea

Most of the time the visitor isn't concerned with our larger project management effort, but may be concerned with issues within that effort. Most people will recognize "Issues" as the place to go to find out about problems with the site and how to file them. The rest of us already know about project.webplatform.org, and that the "Issues" link points to it is not much of a mental stretch for us.

Specifically, I hope we continue to promote project dashboards to highlight the growth and health of the site, and personal dashboards as a way to encourage contributors to load up ideas and tasks for themselves that they can return to. "Issues" is just too small a word for our amazing implementation of The Bug Genie.

I'm wondering if we don't want to make that "Project," since we're encouraging folks to go there for their dashboard, design discussions, and so on. If that sounds good to you and others, I'll update the bug to request that we add the "Project" item to all of the global navs.
