A new subdomain name? :D
« on: November 08, 2010, 02:39:35 am »
Furtopia and Dragoncity are nice and all, but can there be a new one? The Triforce must be complete! :x Something that is on the shorter side and doesn't say "LOOK AT ME IMMA FURRY :33333!" xD Dragoncity doesn't, but it's kinna longish and not everyone is a dragon...so. I dunno. Like rawr or something.floofy maybe? XD

I kinda doubt this is something that will happen. If I can, I'll try to get WhiteSheperd to reply in this thread as he'll have better answers for you.
I'm not sure I understand why you'd want a 3rd domain name, Mooshi? What made you think of this?

Actually, they already have. Or at least they used to. I can't seem to find it anymore. It was called something similar to "Artistworld". (but not actually "Artistworld", as that leads to an unrelated website.)

It's not really a life or death situation, just a random suggestion. XD The main reason is part of me is pondering a site and yeah .

... so you're asking for a "change" just because it feels pretty?  :P

So you're asking for your own hosted site? To the best of my knowledge, applications for a Furtopia hosted site are not being taken anymore right now.
http://www.furtopia.org/application.html
That was for July 2010. I don't know anything further. WS would be the person to ask if you want to PM him.

The website was called "Artist's World,"  and you used to be able to reach it at http://www.artistsworld.org/.  You can see an archived version of how the Artist's World website looked back in 2008 through the Internet Archive Wayback Machine here: http://web.archive.org/web/20080430134301/http://artistsworld.org/.

It looks like the artistsworld.org domain name expired a couple weeks ago and is in its redemption period.  I will shoot WhiteShepherd a PM to notify him about this just in case he wasn't aware that this domain name had expired.  I would hate for him to lose the domain name on accident.  Him and Kaycy may still want it.

Mooshi;

1) floofy is not a valid top-level domain. And I very much doubt it ever will be.
2) etc.subsubdomainnamehere.subdomainnamehere.domainnamehere.topleveldomainnamehere <--- this is the proper terminology
