    Changing forum address?

    Post by Dark_wizzie on Thu Dec 22, 2011 3:14 pm

    I've been contacted by Forumotion, and they said that the forum has enough activity to qualify for a free domain change. That means I can change the link of the forum to... say, www.Wolf3d.net...

    Of course, there is the problem of broken bookmarks.

    I think it is best to keep it as it is now. Otherwise it will create a lot of work changing links.

    Please don't change it. I don't want to have to change links on forums or wolfensteingoodies.com.

    I'll be back after Christmas.

    I think Wolf3d.net sounds fresh as well as more accessible for newcomers. So what if a bookmark screws up or whatever. Any nut can remember Wolf3d.net. I say go for it.

    Chatting today about this

    Post by stathmk on Sat Apr 14, 2012 4:59 am

    At 4:30 pm New York time today, I will be in the chatroom talking about whether we should do this. I'm only interested if the threads with 10,000+ posts will be moved or preserved instead of deleted. I think that we've put too much time and effort into the threads and don't want them deleted.

    I'm pretty sure that if I change the address that no threads would be deleted. It'd basically be same as it is now, only with a different address.

    Yesterday in the chatroom

    Post by stathmk on Sun Apr 15, 2012 5:28 am

    Yesterday in the chatroom, Schabbs said that he's not interested in changing it because he would have to change links going back to March 2007. JPB and I said that we don't want it changed either because we'd have to change a lot of links. I'm now sticking to my decision that I don't want it changed.

    It's better to leave it as is. Any n00bs looking for a wolf3d forum will just use google to find it anyway. We could have an address of www.forumotion-template.w3d.com and people would find this place just as easily.

    I guess the thing here is "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Wink
