I see that there was once a tide of site name change proposal around April - May '12 (5 years ago). It seems that nothing has changed since then. What is the current status of this proposal? Is it officially declined, or just falls into abysmal? What is the opinion from the veterans, the Stack Exchange staffs and other stakeholders? What are some notable conclusions after this?
