Our tour page says:

Welcome to Code Review Stack Exchange

CR http://cdn.sstatic.net/Sites/codereview/img/apple-touch-icon.png

Code Review is a question and answer site for sharing code from projects you are working on for peer review.
It's built and run by you as part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites.
With your help, we're working together to build a library of detailed code reviews.

That wording has been in place since January 2013, and it just echoes the standard formulaic greeting used on most other Stack Exchange sites.

I don't think that the wording suits us. How should be better summarize our mission to newcomers?

As examples of sites that deviate from the standard template, see Ask Patents and Ask Ubuntu.

  • \$\begingroup\$ the site launched in January 2011, not 2013. Typo or is there a reason why you wrote 2013 ? \$\endgroup\$ – Simon Forsberg Nov 23 '14 at 21:45
  • \$\begingroup\$ @SimonAndréForsberg You're right, my chronology is off. The edit history for the tour page says January 2013, for some reason. \$\endgroup\$ – 200_success Nov 23 '14 at 21:50
  • \$\begingroup\$ I suppose the reason is that it actually was edited in January 2013? Or perhaps that is when SE changed the system, which made the analytical badge obsolete? \$\endgroup\$ – Simon Forsberg Nov 24 '14 at 17:33

Let's focus on getting important ideals of the site across to potential new users. We expect the code to work, and we expect it to be yours to share.

Code Review is a question and answer site for seeking peer review of your code.
It's built and run by you as part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites.
We're working together to improve the skills of programmers worldwide by taking working code and making it better.
