This has now been done. All "Task Forces" are now "To-do lists", located in Category:To-do.


The name "Task Forces" was chosen because it was the best we could come up with.

However, I've since realised that the name "To-do lists" would probably work better.

I propose that Task Forces be renamed "To-do lists".

Can anyone think of a reason they shouldn't be renamed, or come up with a better name?

Historical discussions:

Although the current date of the post says January, this was originally posted in Sept 2014 under the title "Renaming Task Forces", but was bumped to the top of the recent posts in January so it would get more attention. 452, 2015-01-08T17:29:22Z (last edited: 452, 2016-11-05T22:06:48Z)

I originally posted this in September and subsequently forgot all about it, but renaming Task Forces as "To-do lists" seems like a pretty good move.
I'll go ahead with this on Feb 1st unless anyone has any good reasons against it.

I like this. I think the wording is more clear in reference to what it means, and "to-do list" just sounds more enticing to complete, since "task-force" sounds like it would be more complicated than what it really is haha., 2015-01-16T03:26:55Z
Thanks for the feedback!

This change will occur in 24 hours unless someone has a better idea.

That'd be right about now.

Huh, that's weird: (I knew about wikipedia's "Task Forces", but not about this.)
It took us 2 renames over 4 fucking years to get from "User Groups" to "To-do lists" - but all we had to do was copy wikipedia.
Still, it's better to have come to the same conclusion organically instead of just copying from somewhere else.
