What should our elevator pitch be?

In one sentence, how will we describe Code Review to the world?

• Did you mean slogan or elevator pitch? An elevator pitch should really be more than one sentence. Or a really long, grammatically incorrect run-on.

• @greg This blog post describes it more thoroughly, but basically for the SE sites it's supposed to be a quick description of the site. For instance, SO is "for professional and enthusiast programmers." Apr 1 '11 at 18:24
• hmm, i think he meant brief description, not brief sentence. wikipedia some website what you guys are after is really a slogan. you couldn't really pitch anything with one sentence. unless it was, "oh, it cures cancer" or "oh, it makes bacon healthy, prints money, and is a hell of a card player"

• I like that one! Mar 10 '11 at 4:50
• Nice one, except it makes it sound like CR is here to help you debug code... which it isn't. Sep 8 '13 at 22:17
• Jeff Atwood has an alternative take on this though... :p May 6 '15 at 9:45
• Yeah..... Nope. Jul 3 '15 at 19:29

... meh, sounded better in my head.

• Maybe "Get some eyes on your code"? May 18 '15 at 3:22

"Where smelly code goes to get a bath."

Something like that

For all programmers that care about what they're coding.

Reducing technical debt, one review at a time.

• Where bad code comes to die.
• CodeReview - Fixing your code, day and night, without Exceptions.

Code Review is...

The largest repository of working code samples on the Internet.

<sarcasm>And idiots waiting around to make them even better for a handful of Internet points...</sarcasm>

• I don't think that last part is really necessary... May 12 '15 at 0:52
• @SimonAndréForsberg The last part is a joke. I edited it down to the <sub> font to make a more clear distinction... I'm obviously one of these idiots... May 12 '15 at 0:53

"You know they are there ... somewhere. you know they reduce your performance, your productivity. See your reviewer about diagnosis and possible treatments."

CodeReview.StackExchange.com

1. "Where public code reviews are done right"

2. "Where public code reviews live"

Improving code, habits and people

The place where bad code is tearfully taken out behind the shed

Or, alternatively:

"It can be better."

• EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!..

• @gaearon EXFOLIATE. Mar 16 '11 at 18:35
• That would make codereview for debugging which it isn't. Sep 9 '13 at 16:33

Are you sure that your code is clean? Test it!

A place to get your code reviewed.
