Everything needs to be copied to the article system here anyway. So any outbound links will be fixed then.
Outbound links shouldn't need fixing. The inbound links are the problem. Every link to prepare4descent.net will break :(

You are right, I meant internal links.

imo I think p4d.planetdescent.net sounds better. The other domain is just too long. I always try to use abbreviations for subdomains but maybe that's just me.

I sort of like p4d.pd.net. It is fast to say, rolls off the tongue, and all it is are simple letters.

Not me, I'd probably get tongue tied with all those P's and D's. :P

I'm having trouble having it roll off my tongue, see ~~~>  :P

pd.net sure does. the p4d doesn't for some reason. i think it's the "4" that seems to be the break.
p.o.d. does, but maybe I'm used to saying c.o.d.
p.f.d.? prepare for descent.

pfd.pd.net?

wait, we are still going to be planetdescent.net though. right?
why the talk about domain names or is someone just thinking what sounds nice?

I was wondering why the subject came up, but I wasn't sure how to mention it. :P

I like pfd.pd.net better. :)

I am not registering any more domains, people are just talking. I highly doubt you could get any two or three letter domains*, but of course a sub-domain can be anything. But, no I am not going to move it again.

*I mean, at a reasonable price.

this domain name is fine. I kind of figured people were 'just talking', but sometimes I feel left in the dark.

One last nit-pick and I promise I'm done. If a site is set up properly, moving domains shouldn't be much work. Relative links are a wonderful thing. Then again, I'm not on the SMF dev team and I've never set up SMF so I don't know how "logically" they designed it in this regard.

Ok I'm done now.

(But you could make a redirect at least from p4d....net to prepare4descent....net without breaking anything?)

(Ok I'm really done now)

(Yes, really)

Would it be a good idea to include p4d in some section in the "Reactor" area?
