Domain Name

I bought the domain greenday.community which I think is pretty cool. Right now it's just a redirect (try it out: http://greenday.community will bring you back to GDC - specifically back to this blog post just for funsies).

I'm debating whether or not we should change our domain name to greenday.community and drop the .org. I think it would be cool, but also kind of weird since full domains like that aren't really common (they're relatively new). But I also think .org is kind of a weird domain for a forum to have.

Vote in the poll, let me know why you feel one way or the other about it in the comments below.

I just think it's easier to find if it's .org, but since the .community links here it doesn't matter a ton. .community is just really uncommon for people to see

No I don't like domains whose extension are longer than the name itself.

I mean that extension "community" 9 char is longer than the name "greenday" 8 char

I like the idea of placing emphasis on the "community" aspect but it's strange to see at first glance. I know .org isn't the most common sight either but to the eyes of a newbie I think they'd trust and engage with our current domain name more.

I like the org because I like to think of it as being short for orgy. Other than that I'm neutral, either sounds fine.

I'm not overly keen but maybe that's just because it's unusual. I've been on plenty of .org forums so I've never seen it as weird. But maybe it'd be a cool novelty and something kinda unique. I've voted no but I'm on the fence.

Don't know much about the proper domanis for different webistes, but I think it'd be cool so I voted yes :D

Nah, because it'll be annoying to type into the address bar. Typing "greendayc" and then pressing enter automatically brings me here, but the added "." will confuse it. Unless I type the whole thing out it'll just send me to "greenday.com".

Typing "g" in the address bar and then pressing enter automatically brings me here :lol:

Don't hate you. We're just not fond of the suggestion.

All my suggestions are gold. Disliking them shows contempt for my genius.

Only if we can also vote to throw people off the forum entirely.
That's mods job really.

Personally I don't like it. It just sounds a bit weird to me and could (possibly) be more confusing for new members since it's not a .com, .net, or .org like most websites.

You'd think so, wouldn't you? :( #justicefortomnomnom
