Site domain name

Alright, I am really really bored by myself already "wasting" almost whole day just trying to think of the best official domain name for this site.

We've talked and talked about it on IRC, but haven't yet came to a definite decision.

So, maybe it's best to put it here in forums, as a poll.. I'll first identify current candidates:

1) LinuxNative.org
2) PenguinBoard.org
3) FreeOSForums.org
4) Nuxified.org (leave as is)

If you have super bombastic suggestions or anything like it let's hear! We need ideas.

Btw, if this starts getting some attention before we decide on a domain name this thread will be restricted to members-only. Let's just say we want to prevent someone else taking our domain name before we do. Eye

What this site is basically going to be is a support forums for Free Software (as in freedom) and GNU/Linux especially (as its flag OS). So in my opinion domain names that point either to GNU/Linux or Free Software in general should be suitable.

My personal favourites at the moment (cause I'm really tired to have a real favourite) is LinuxNative.org. But infact all of the above would probably be nice.

Cheers
Daniel

 

voted LinuxNative, but i also wouldnt mind leaving it as it is (nuxified.org)

Thanks alot vor voting Nihilanth

The results here should speak for itself. I don't imagine alot votes now, but at least the group from IRC will have a "majority decision" made. Smiling

Cheers

Eh, if even this poll doesn't decide I think we'll just stick with what we have here.. I guess that'll be least disctatorshipious of me (compared to going with my own fav) Sticking out tongue

I like nuxified since it has some kind of clevernes about it.

Though something else could do, I don't know what though.

Hi dylunio.. choose one for the sake of having more votes..

If you'd like nuxified.org to stay, just vote that. Smiling

Cheers

I voted FreeOSForums.org as I think it hits the point and sounds most obvious.

However, "Nuxified.org (leave as is)" would be my second choice.

 

I think nuxified is a good idea, because not all *nix OS's are open source ( Though the ones that are, are better). Also, the fact that some Linux OS's arent free, but are Open Source :s

Hi onlinebacon, welcome.

Have you voted for it? Just vote so we can have it in results..

Thank you
Daniel

 

I have now Eye

Thanks for the welcome, and the good forums Smiling

Great, thank you. Smiling

By elimination...

LinuxNative.org -> I don't get it. What is the "native" supposed to mean? The first thing I think of when reading NameOfAnOS + native is binaries for proprietary operating systems. As in "this program is windows native".

FreeOSForums.org -> Boring, but it describes exactly what the site is about. And if you write it all lower case, it looks ugly: freeosforums.org. Freeo's forums? Third choice.

Nuxified.org -> Only if there is close integration with nuxified.com. Second choice.

PenguinBoard.org -> That is a fine and attractive name. My first choice.

By the way, if you want the best results from a poll, you shouldn't tell which option is your favourite.

Well, nuxified.org would be advertised as an official forum for Nuxified.com, but then again it's official network wide so.. Maybe having similar name wouldn't be such a problem if it is clearly stated that this is a separate site although recommended for GNU/Linux and Free Software support questions and discussions.

Eh you're right about that. Right now I don't really have favourites, but it doesn't seem like votes were biased toward my favourite said in the original post.

Now, what to do, nuxified.org is apparently winning so according to this poll so far (and we don't have any more people to vote if counting the IRC crowd that knows about it so far) that's what should probably stay.

Anyone has better ideas? :smt001

flossforums.org?

 

Penguinboard.org sounds a bit too, linuxey ( sorry for my made up word Laughing out loud ) I mean, I think it is a free operating system forum, so something like nuxified would probably be better Smiling

Well.. I think that one isn't much better than FreeOSForums.org mostly for the same reasons you already described:

I'd say penguinboard and nuxified.org are probably best names. Nuxified.org was inactive for months and was bought for a potential forum on nuxified.com. It turned out this forum will be like a separate site, but there still is a relation.

There is a way to resolve the problem of similar names, to get a domain name like nuxifiedforums.org. This way confusion would be pretty much avoided and nuxified.org could still stay as a redirect name that would work for nuxifiedforums.org as official.

What do you think?

Thanks
Daniel

With the identical logo, and a similar design, everything should work out fine if nuxified.com has a link to nuxified.org ("Need help getting nuxified? Visit the nuxified.ORG forums") and .org also has a link to .com . Actually that's better for both sites :smt004

 

I still think that the domain should be www.nuxifiedforums.org, I think it would rock, also, it is to the point, and someone who is interested in getting a forum, just gets a forum Smiling

Well, we can clearly have a compromise here that can "fit all" so to say.

Nuxifiedforums.org could be made an official domain name, but nuxified.org would work as a redirect to it. The nuxified.com will definitely have a link to this site and the design is probably going to end up similar so we'd have all of it..

Maybe that strikes our chord. Smiling

That sounds grand here Smiling

I'd say we need both nuxified.org and nuxifiedforums.org, because the logo can be read both ways.
By the way, does this shiny tux comply with the Tango icon guidelines?

Almost. If you guys want to change it I can fix it up.

NuxifiedForums.org has just been ordered for registration. It should be settled in within a day as a default domain name here. Nuxified.org will work at least as a redirect.
