Finding a new name was extremely difficult. But we've finally found it.

A new name for Pencil

by Sydney Liu, co-founder of Comma

As many of you know, we have been searching for a new name.

SEO was the biggest reason for the change.

More in depth reasons here: https://usepencil.com/play/sydney/a-new-brand-of-pencil---help-rename-pencil Thank you to ALL of you for the suggestions and help!

There were no names that pleased everyone.

We went through over 4000 names, and we finally found one that pleased us and many of our friends and community members.

The new name is: Comma

Coming soon!

Comma captures what we do and where we want to go

Our goal is to make sharing ideas simple & possible for everyone. Commas were designed to help communicate clearly. Even functionally, our format splits ideas into simpler ideas, like the comma

EVERYTHING will transfer over from Pencil

Your posts, followers, stats, comments, etc. Don't worry! They'll all be there!

Thank you to everyone who helped with the re-name!

@jaswinderbrar the fact that seethrough.com costs $25k a year was the main turnoff why we couldn't use it haha

Thanks @Ellebie! Appreciate your candid feedback! We really liked the name Pencil ourselves, (didn't so much initially, but it grew on us). The idea of stopping or pausing was one thing we did consider when thinking about the name Comma....ultimately we thought that Comma's implied that there was more to come rather than a complete end. And that is a feeling that we want people to have, that there is more to come

I beg you to reconsider www.SeeThrough.com, <(comma) but great choice also.

I don't like to rain on your parade but I think this is a big mistake. Comma to me seems like 'halting' stopping and can see 'pencil' on the other hand as becoming iconic in the future. Colouring in is a big trend as we become constantly bombarded with tech alternatives - we use colouring in pencils and pens. Pencil represents communication for centuries past and sketches from the greats like Leonardo Di Vinci. I hope I am wrong and wish you all the best. A lover of the name 'use pencil' 🌹
