Looking For Users; And A website maker

Post by nn » Wed Jun 27, 2007 11:21 pm

Well I Have been doing very well on the tech side of things.

But I Want to make a cool website with a nice address!!

For bzflag!

The sight will be designed off of drupal so all you Bz flag-er's Can post!

If you find or think up a cool domain name for the sight pm it to me!

The domain name will be used for hosting bzflag fields as well as the website!

I am going to stick-up forums, blogs etc. All kinds of cool stuff including Screen Shot Galleries!

Tell me what you think!

( Planning Stages ) Need a Good Domain Name First!!

There are many sites like the 1 your planning out already. Not many even really took off well from the start :)

Why is yours different from the rest?

Try paying 5$ a month for a webhost, and register a real domain for 5$ a year.

Really now.

NN:
Why would this be any different from the forum? It sounds like you are trying to make another BZBB...

I think NN has stopped working on this site.

This thread dates back to June.

I have a new rootserver with:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3400+
DualCore 2x 1.8 GHz

160 GB space (SATA, 5.400rpm, 8MB)
Realtek, 100 MBit
Datentransfer unlimited Flatrate
Switchport 100 MBit
Debian 4.0

And BZFlag Domains
bzflag.at
bzflag.eu
and new is
bzflag.biz
bzflag.name

and can for all domains unlimited sub domains enter.
Example: YourSubDomain.bzflag.biz or YourSubDomain.bzflag.name

Interesting?

Previous experience has shown that web sites hosted on free domains never last long. (That is why you don't see google.tripod.com). Then again, research has shown that people who can host their own servers can most likely do other stuff too, so the websites never get updated (Hence, my http://sqrt.homelinux.org). Of course, this list of 30 wasted domain names shows how just having a domain name doesn't make the project a success.

Anyway, since this craze is obviously over, now it it is time to find something else to do.

P.S. You can also use my server. Pentium 4, 512 MB of RAM, 40 GB hard drive, Toshiba laptop, randomly overheats and causes bus errors, owner forgets to restart it, etc...
