OK guys and gals. It's time to look at finding a new domain name. So below is a short list of suggestions that were available in all three domain endings. (.com, .net, .org)

You won't be limited to one choice, so vote for your favorites.

I really don't care.

As long as you tell me where you are all going!

well, we own this domain as well, so when we move, we'll just have this domain automatically forward to the new domain.


no notification necessary. go here and you'll instantly go there!

i like x best
y second
z third


and then we add up the scores


tough choices as i like a few of them

please let me play, I promise to be good!

I was joking above, but nice to see you care

To me the name is secondary. It is the content that is important (still waiting for Carol to detail her "parking" experiences!) :smokey:

I just voted, but g's idea is a good/valid one. Is a three way preferential voting system possible perhaps?

You can pick one or pick multiples. There isn't a way to stairstep the ranking of your votes.

I'd like to see InfiniteApple.net (IA.net) or AppleNova.net (AN.net), both sound cool. Not .org please ...

thanks

I'll support AppleFaction if we can redub the PowerTools video (Satisfaction) as our theme.

Out of the available choices, I went with AppleFaction.

Even though AppleInciter was mine, that would be like picking at a wound or poking a dog with a stick from the safety of the other side of the fence.



Too close to AppleInsider, and a gratuitous, permanent "jab in the eye" that I don't think we need.

And I kinda like the "revolution" and "evolution" ones, but they're an awkward mouthful and don't exactly slide off the tongue nice and easy.

I like AppleFaction, and have for weeks because of it's cool triple-layered meaning, fitting so many aspects of this site (info, speculation and "the incident"). And it flows out of one's mouth nicely...repeated double-beat.

I picked AppleFaction, just because it has a better sound to it than the others.

Some of those are pretty good, but none really grabs you and pulls you in, ya know? Other than AppleInciter (which I like a lot because of its thinly veiled meanings) most sound like names that are "trying" to be cool-sounding. Know what I mean?

Just some ideas right off the top of my head, there's always:

Macunity (as in, Mac Community or Mac Unity)

or

(I kinda like this one because it has so many meanings and all three domains are available AFAICT)

RealityDistortionForums

Then we can use "RDF" as a logo, for T-Shirts, etc. If you guys don't like that as a domain, we could always call our new AO forum that, since AO will presumeably not be available as an option at that point. I think it would be kinda ironical-like.

:smokey:

Couldn't agree more. None of the new names strike me at all. Then again we could be www.cheeseeatingsurnedermonkeys.com and I wouldn't care as long as the members were there.

Methinks we have a winner. I like this suggestion over all of the ones listed in the poll.

Edit: Reality Distortion Forums is available for .com, .org, and .net.

I can't believe InfiniteApple is currently the top choice. I think that one is awful. (That's not to say that I could come up with anything better, though)

I only liked one on the list: AppleFaction.

edit: I was typing during the time that the RDF suggestion above was posted.

I prefer RealityDistortionForums over any of the others as well. Even though I think it's a bit long for a domain name.

Ugh.

I voted for AppleEvolution and AppleNova, but any of them are good EXCEPT InfiniteApple. That one is really dumb I think... damn, it's one thing to say "so I logged into AppleFaction today and..." or "surfed over to AppleNova the other day..." but "InfiniteApple?" Too many syllables, too hard to spell, terrible web address. That's why it hasn't been taken by now.

I vote "Anything But InfiniteApple" this election

Oooh wait... since I'm a mod, can I edit my choices? I think I can! w00t

When I said that name idea for applenova I didn't even had a clue it was a persons last name. I put that idea meaning explosive, something bursts out saying listen I have something to say.

The only one I liked among the choices was AppleEvoloution. I liked AppleTalk, but that was not among the choices, and turns out to be taken already on the 'net. I notice that my own idea, "Applely-Dapplely-Talkity-Doo-Dah-Day.org", is also not one of the choices. That's odd.

well thats why you could just call it IA much like we call the forums AI(.org) currently...

I voted for IA, AN, and AI(I'd like to keep the abbr. the same, just add the .org to tell the difference...)...

also, why can't we see who voted for what? I really liked that feature...

SOS I think the italics represent what "you" voted for, when you revisit the poll. I voted for two and they both show up as italics.

For the record, I voted for AppleFaction and AppleNova. Of course, if AppleNova gets the nod by one vote, then I'll know who to blame.

yeah, your vote choices show up in italics.

if there's no clear winner, we can always do this again.

seeing as appleinsider.org isn't going anywhere (no thanks to Kasper and company) we can move at our leisure.

We are having a dead heat between 3 domain names applenova, infiniteapple, and applefaction. I am afraid that some members here don't know about the poll. I think we should somehow make the poll stand out more. Maybe put a linkto the poll on the current news page. Maybe it would get more attention.

I still like appleinsideher.org the best. I'm sure murbot wouldn't mind giving it up for a good cause, and a small fee.

There is no small fees, when new powermac are on the way

On a more serious note, my prefered choice is Apple nova. It sounds good, I like it.

I like the RDF suggestion the best so far. Could someone add that to the poll? The other suggestions in the poll are for me.

How about wired-mock-turtleneck.com?
