    Thinking about setting up a site dealing with Linux.
    Most of the good names are taken - but I am thinking about 1 of the below 2
    servinglinux.com
    nowservinglinux.com

    Which one would be better?

    Shorter better!?

    That's what I'm leaning towards... but may do both and use servinglinux.com as the domain name for the site and redirect the other to it. That way the site logo can have Now Serving Linux in it and not get confused with any other site with that domain name. :p
    That's what I did with my sayapple.com one and also registered justsayapple.com and redirected it to the shorter one.
    Already have an idea in my head for the logo. A chef holding up a serving dish with a lot of CD's on it.

    helpwithlinux.net ?
    The .org and .com are not being used.

    May go ahead and grab the .com extension and point it at the others. I just like shorter stuff and I see a lot of possibilities with the servinglinux one.

    If it's a forum / community, how about - linuxcomm ?

    linuxcomm.com? ehhh.. just a few to many com's there. :LOL:
    I prefer trying to keep to the .com extensions.
    I've already grabbed the first two... but if something better comes up I'm open for that too (heck, at only $9 a domain, it's less than a pizza snack. ;)

    I'm already in the process of setting it up. The domains are configured and resolving to the server and the try-out install of myBB is up with forums already being configured. The style still has to be worked on (a logo made mainly).
    I figure I'll grab a copy of xenForo a month... in 6 months I'll have all of 'em on xenForo. If they don't take off, I can always try something else with them. :coffee:

    You could go one step further and put the community on a sub-domain ... linux.linuxcomm.com ... ta da!! :ROFLMAO:

    Were you a comedic writer in a previous life? Maybe for Benny Hill? :p

    Got a base logo started... just got to do some more work with it and find a font I like a little better.

    If I was, I'd suggest hosting the site on a Windows server ... boom - tish!! :eek:

    Well, it's up and running... now if I can just get folks like @MattW to come and visit some and post some of his Linux goodness there I'll be off to a good start. :whistle:

    You don't have to... was just giving ya' a hard time. I'm still battling trying to learn to style myBB. After getting used to xenForo, myBB is a PITA to deal with. :confused:

    You may have caught it when I was rebooting the server after doing some updates.:whistle:

    It's up and running now and I just logged in via an incognito window and pulled up the registration page.

    Click agree on that page, that's when you get the error page.

    Something weird is going on with it.... the captcha's aren't even showing up now. Rebooting the server again. I HATE myBB styles. :rolleyes:

    Well... doing a fresh install. Had to be something in one of the add-ons that trashed the templates. Only thing I can figure.

    @MattW, just what I thought... stinking old captcha add-on that said it was 1.6 compatible... had to go in and edit the php code. :ROFLMAO:
    It should be working now.
    Makes me love xenForo even MORE now.:whistle:
