Re: Domains

That’s a ton of new TLDs, don’t see much use for the majority of them.

Call me old school, but I prefer .com, .net and .org.

Maybe I can make use of .porn, if I were inclined to launch a Pron site.

Yeah, like the old days, make it look like a Usenet interface to alt.binaries.

Real clean site, no animated ads showing bouncing body parts, or popups that fill the screen.

I have a domain name all set to go ;)

Re: Domains

WeLoveTxp.com could be considered a form of Textporn . . .

Alas. Several years late.

Re: Domains

I feel that this threat started without pointing out the urgency of the subject matter. Dean seems to be unpredictable lately and we might stand a strong chance to lose some domains next time.

It would be prudent if some new tlds are bought and point our current urls to the new urls using htaccess rewrite rules. If we do it now, we will be able to guarantee that we will keep our user-base and our google ranks (or whatever they are calling it now). It will also give an opportunity for everybody to update their bookmarks as well as the links to txp from their sites.

I am not of course the one who will make this decision but I would like to hear if others share the same fear.

Re: Domains

I share the same fear. But I prefer .com, .net, .org etc to these new TLDs. I think Bert is right that a new name is best but I think combining that with custom fields and themes release might be the best time to announce it to the world. There’s also hosting to consider. Would the newly-named cms be hosted by Joyent for free?

I have no doubt that should it come to that a) other companies would be provide hosting (I have a provisional ‘yes’ from two already, one is an ongoing offer) and b) we can use GitHub for basic hosting, too.

Frankly, a roll-your-own at DO or Linode would be the best option and provide a good service.

Are you saying they’d host for free because of the goodwill that would be passed on to them?
