    Okay, for the sake of my niche, lets just say it's a topic about armadillos.

    So in reality, I would go for something like:
    armadilloforum.com or armadilloforums.com

    but sadly, they are taken and are not put to use. Anyways,
    would you go with something like this..

    armadillosforum.com or armadillotalk.com

    Comments, suggestions, thoughts?

    Does it make sense to pluralise your topic? If the unpluralised version is unused I'd probably go with that. If it's used and you'd be competing I'd go with talk instead.

    Having said that, avforums and avsforums don't seem to suffer from the similarity (I know it's not quite the same as pluralising but it's the same effect).

    What about .net or .org?

    What about pre-ordering the .forum gTLD? (Depends on when you want a domain I guess).

    Is .forum available to order?

    I was just wonder what is better for seo and overall purposes?
    ***forum.com or ***forums.com?

    I will be buying both to redirect to the other, but I want to know what I should make for the main domain name.

    Thanks guys

    Forum (singular) because it's one forum containing multiple discussion forums.

    I heard its better to use .com? Does .net have any
    Should I put the actual forum in /forum or /forums

    Not really these days. I'm using .net. Other use .org. In the UK, many companies choose to use .co.uk.

    With the changes in gTLDs and the greater range available, I think the .com mentality will start to disappear.
