MyBB Twig's New URL

Post by shadowsowner888 on 7/6/2010, 6:10 pm

Just quoting myself from the sticky I posted in the help section:

shadowsowner888 wrote:We're definitely going to switch, but really, in case this hasn't been said here yet, I don't think there's a choice. The domain name we have currently belongs to Forumotion, so until the period we paid for it expires, we won't be able to use it anywhere else - and it doesn't expire for 44 days. So as soon as we're able, I'm going to try and purchase it as an alternate domain name, but we're definitely going to need a different one until then.

I'm going to put up a poll for the question of which name.

I hope that's clear enough. XD If not . . . basically what's going in is that we won't be able to use shadowsowner888.forumotion.net for a while. The site will need a different address until this one is available again.

(And for the record, I may be totally misunderstanding how it works. XD So somebody please correct me if anything in that quote is wrong.)

So, the poll includes some options that were suggested by people in that sticky. I ran them all through a checker, and the ones you see are the ones that aren't taken and don't cost extreme amounts of money.

For the time being, they're all listed with .com because it's too confusing for me to put in all the different endings. XD So after this poll, we'll probably have another where you can choose between .com or .net, but if there's not enough time we'll just go with .com.

My favorite is twigwriters.com. In my mind, the majority of them are just as long or longer than the one we have now (which I think is the opposite of one of the littler but considered reasons we wanted to change) or they're cluttered with capitalizations. That left me with two, and I chose what I preferred. :3

(But no offense to the people who gave the other suggestions!)

I'm confused... so the CONVERTED Twig on MyBB is going to be shadowsowner888? Or what we voved on up there?

Well, really capitals don't matter unless you're using Linux/Unix computers. Like, you could type shadowsowner888.com as ShAdOwSoWnEr888.com and it'd still come up as the same website.

Just for the record. xD



Well, it's going to be shadowsowner888 eventually, but we already paid for shadowsowner888 on this one for a year, so until that year is up we won't be able to use shadowsowner888 on MyBB. So we're voting on the one we use until we can use shadowsowner888. (And when we can, we'll just use both. XD)

@Heather: I'm glad I have an agree-er. And I add this just for you—x3

@Shadow: They don't? That makes me feel even stronger towards my initial vote, as to me the lack of capitalizations would only look more cluttered. Razz That is, assuming I understood you correctly. xD

Well, if you do type in random capitals for shadowsowner888.com, it's still all lowercase when it loads. So I think that might depend on how it works when we register it. XD

To an extent, the URLs are case sensitive, but as I said, really only under Linix/Unix operating systems. Mac and Windows computers would see shadowsowner888.com and shadowsowNer888.com as the same URL, but in Linix/Unix, it'd come out as two different ones.

Did that clarify things? xD

Mm-hm, that clarified things, and I still feel the same considering I have a Dell/Windows. xD Let me type them out just to be sure though.

twiguild.com
twritersig.com

Well, I wouldn't mind the first one too much, but the second one to me looks like we're trying to merge Twitter, Writers and Siggie into one URL. Not that it's a problem, it's just... not what the site's purpose is. xD

You know what, it does.

Anyways, I'm with the majority. twigwriters.com (it feels weird not starting my sentence with a capital) is short, sweet, easy to remember.

Either writersinternetguild or thewritersinternetguild. I really don't like the name 'twigwriters', simply because new users think, 'what the heck is Twig?'. I mean, sure, that's what we call it, but you don't see WI having a domain name like 'WImembers.com' or something like that.

I guess I'll have to be fine with whichever domain name there is, though. -shrugs-

...true.
I am good with basically any of them, but like Cyn said, twritersig, if you leave out the caps, looks extremely awkward. That's really the only one I don't like. Most of the others are long but otherwise not a problem.
Also, if it was writersonlineguild or any variation thereof, we wouldn't be TWIG anymore. We'd be TWOG, which isn't nearly as catchy.

That post made me just want to eat the options which would turn Twig into Twog. XD I refuse to let the name change, I refuse!

You guys owe my old thread a thanks for Twig. XD
I was stupid enough to say; "TWG needs a new nickname!"
And suddenly someone came up with Twig. O_o

But anyway, I voted.
But my vote might not even matter, in the end.

Every vote counts, Mia. Smile Like this year at our school, we have co-presidents because both people got the exact same number of votes.

Yeah, Shadow, I totally agree - Twog just doesn't sound cool. xD

Twog... Sounds like a twig and a log had a baby. xD I'm sorry, that probably created a bad image. o.0 I guess that deepens our preference for Twig though.

And Mia, based off of what I remember about what would happen to you and your relations to Twig if your dad found out about a different address, is it possible that you might be able to show him the various threads of discussion to inform him about the transfer while logged off so at the same time he doesn't have to know about your post count, as that's another issue at hand? Or would that be of minimal/negative assistance?

For some reason, I like thewritersinternetguild.com the best. It is a little long, but, for me, I always use my bookmarks/favorites and it isn't hard for me to bring up a website. And it tells what the site is, basically.
