# What should our domain be? [duplicate]

Possible Duplicate:
Write an Elevator Pitch / Tagline

## Note:

We are closing this domain naming thread. It is asking the entirely wrong question. See this blog post for details: Domain Names: Wrong Question

We're going to keep the name gamdev.stackexchange.com. But we WILL be setting up redirects from the more "popular" domains names (e.g. seasonedadvice.com to cooking.stackexchange.com, basicallymoney.com to money.stackexchange.com, and others as we go through the list).

New question: "Write and Elevator Pitch / Tagline!"

[original message text below]

Post your ideas for a dot-com domain name for this website, which captures the spirit and intent of the site, namely:

{name} is intended for expert and advanced gamers on all consoles and computers, including, but not limited to...

• Game Design
• Game Programming
• Asset Creation
• Writing for Games

• Check to see if the domain is taken or squatted before making the name suggestion. Squatted and taken names, however clever, are not helpful. You can use whois.net to check availability. (EDIT: Read this post regarding squatted names).
• Post one domain per answer. This makes the voting process much easier. If domains are very similar (e.g. "dev" and "devs"), they can be in the same answer.
• Make sure the domain wasn't already suggested. To search within this question, use a search query such as: inquestion:1 "example.com" replacing example.com with the domain to search for.
• When coming back to this question, make sure to sort the answers "newest first", as to not miss new proposals.
• Guess we should get started with that stuff here also :p

• Use bust a name to generate domain names.

• @Fire Bustaname only checks for 404 like content. I got a few false positives from it. Still pretty cool for thinking of stuff though.

• Can we get a few game development domains that aren't programming-related? Coding is a relatively small part of the gamedev process, and I'd love to see some ideas that focus on the game part of things. Jul 17 '10 at 8:18
• @ZorbaTHut Going to find thats what the bulk of the suggestions come from since this place spawned from a programming community.

• Is finding a domain name still relevant? nothingtoinstall.com was only life for half a day before it was renamed back to webapps.stackexchange.com Oct 3 '10 at 20:53
• I'm of the mind that gamedev.stackexchange.com is superior to all of the below suggestions, perhaps only short of my suggestion. :) Oct 7 '10 at 21:29

Epic Effects

# EpicEffects.com

Available.

creatingworlds.com Not available.

• CreatingWorlds.com is not available. You linked to CreatingsWorlds (not nearly as good but, yes, that's available). Jul 21 '10 at 3:01
• @Robert Cartaino♦: damn my typo... sorry and thanks for the correction Jul 22 '10 at 8:51

# CodeInTheGame.com

Available.

It's not a dot-com. So feel free to vote it down if you are very strict about that. But I think this is an awesome name:

(available)

6to8weeks.com

:P

or

## BehindThePolygons.com

available.

This is obviously a play on the BeyondPolygons name. I think that behind better describes game development than beyond.

• I think Behind Polygons would imply that we are a community dedicated to 3D game development. (Our work is what's behind the polygon) as opposed to the Beyond meaning more than just polygons.

CollisionDetect.com

• This (and BoundingBoxes.com) just seem too specific to me. I don't think this is all about game implementation, it's also about design and the like. Many games don't even have collision detection of any kind. Jul 16 '10 at 8:18

GameDevExchange.com

• Let's please stay away from notions of Stack Exchange or especially Experts Exchange. Jul 21 '10 at 17:14
• Why exactly should we stay away from notions of Stack Exchange? The notion here is not very direct, does not seem to be a problem to me.

WorldViewProjection.com

As of right now, not taken.

## makingitbreathe.com

available

AngryData.com

:)

• Would fit better with a database or data mining website. Jul 14 '10 at 20:51
• Maybe, but it also resonates about 'issues' and has a fun note to it. Game development should be fun. Jul 14 '10 at 21:42

WhileDeveloping.com

• Doesn't indicate that it is about Game Development. Jul 14 '10 at 20:59
• @TomWij yeah, but it was floating around up there and available so I just got it out :p

PlightSimulator.com

DetectingLeaks.com

Available for sale.

MMOGDC.com

(Massively Multiuser Online Game Developer's Community)

• MMORPG is a mistake of our society and needs to be put down. Let's not continue it. Jul 21 '10 at 17:11

TightenUpThoseGraphics.com

## byhumansforhumans.com

(available)

DevelUp.ga [me]

• DevelUp.com, DevelUp.net, DevelUp.org are taken; not unique, not .com. Jul 15 '10 at 11:18
• It was a nice play on words though! Oh well. :-\ Jul 21 '10 at 17:12

ItsDoneWhenItsDone.com

• Maybe just WhenItsDone.com could work. (3drealms.com/duke4) Jul 15 '10 at 11:22
• @TomWij: that's what I was referring to :) whenItsDone is squatted but it might be bought if liked... Jul 15 '10 at 11:34
• WhenItsDone.com seems to be taken though, maybe WhenItIsDone.com? Jul 15 '10 at 12:17
• @TomWij: That might still be ok, see here Jul 16 '10 at 8:59
• @TomWij: I made WhenItsDone.com a separate suggestion. Jul 16 '10 at 9:00
