Chose the forum. Guess we're a forum only place then.

theotherplace.org.uk

I would prefer something like this as it dont narrow TOP to just a forum. get the domain, and add a /forum to it maybe. I think the choices given are too few, and if i could, i would retract my vote. I think TOP is more than just a forum, or it could and should be.

If the other place is more than just a forum, then what is it?

If it's going to be an e-zine again, or a shop, or a flickr-style media sharing hub, or whatever, should we be thinking of a completely new name with an available .com domain?

This depends entirely on the energy of the users. It could be many things, the whole point of my post is that if 'forum' is included in the basic domain, then we are basically limited to a form site. If we use a generic name like theotherplace, then it allows flexibility to do more as the community changes.

I think you closed the other thread too early before I could get a word in.

I think a domain with the word 'forum' in limits you to precisely that. I would say something else for future proofing. :geek:


[edit - now that I've read the other posts, I guess I agree with thems at zee top of zee page.]

We tried the e-zine thing and it was ace for the 5 minutes until people got bored of contributing to it (and that includes me, although I didn't get bored I just found more interesting things to do with my time). There's no point having a multi-purpose name if we're going to do fuck-all with it.

In light of recent posts, I've changed the options.

Firstly, removing the actual top-level domain type, and that is currently irrelevant - when a name is chosen, we can look at that more carefully. There aren't any 'top level' choices for top-forum.x however (so no .com, .net, .org etc). I've also changed the final option in leau of some of the posts above - if you don't like either of the existing options, go for that.

Sorry for the cockery about.

I now object. I don't like .org.uk or that shizzle either.

I will abstain, and bookmark wherever the fuck it is we go. ;)

Although, http://www.monsterwangforumandassociatedproducts.com would fuckin pwn.
