Announcements, maintenance etc.. Boring.
no problems. depending on registrar, you can pay for 10 years or something if you want (and, i guess, more, too).beason wrote:Thanks for creating this forum, Jakko. It's great how the community is reforming (like molten T1000 after freezing in liquid nitrogen and shattering).
I too would like to see an easier to remember name for accessing the board. Maybe we can take a poll?
as they are all easier to remember than current one
ompf.conesoft.net is better too, thanks daverperman. I will gladly chip in for new domain. Can you pay several years in advance?
soo.. is there voting on this forum? i want to vote for raytracingforum.com (or .org, whatevr..).
why? because it's a proper understandable domain name, not some shortcut or random letters or anything. would allow it to be a bit more official. maybe a bit more professionally looking, too (esp. with an url shortener, which would allow something like "raytracingforum.com/Logistics/ompf2/Welcome!" to be the url of this thread.
maybe if we're bored, we'll find some shortener-domain ala rtf.ly or similar for the typing-focused users.
Let's move things forward and make it democratic. The first step would be collecting suggestions for a domain name. In the second one, we'll vote for the domains, and in the end the highest ranked available domain can be bought. I'll create a new topic for the suggestions and will add the ones by davepermen and a couple by me.
