There's talk about changing our name from "Ann Arbor" to "Washtenaw County" so as to include our friends in Ypsi, Pittsfield, Dexter, Saline, et al. Any objections?


@instance Most of the other instances aren't geo-defined, and I think that the term isn't exclusive (but I'm an insider, so I might not recognize my privilege).

But I *REALLY* like having a short URL when I have to type it, especially on the phone.

@Cornellbox I think the Ypsi folks on the instance (those who I've heard from) are okay with the newly updated description at

@dzombak yeah. I've been following it. And I think you've done well with making it inclusive and understandable
