Domain name

Post  Klaus on Sat Sep 21, 2013 4:49 pm

People keep questioning why our domain name is what it is, so here is why it is what it is: When EAF was first created we were originally called the Argonath Saracens based from the gang by the same name in The Warriors. This is because in the film/game they were known to be a very strategic gang which we thought fit us and our style pretty well; It had nothing to do with the term used in medieval times that some people may of wrongly thought. Anyway, after adding our tags ingame "[AS]" and announcing our gang ingame it was the veteran player Call_Me_Dad (better known as aXXo) that told us that having the server name "Argonath" in the group name was disallowed because we were not an official group. So as a result we had to change our name, so we had a clan vote and together we agreed on the Eighth Avenue Furies (again loosely based from a gang in The Warriors). After changing our name and tag, we decided not to create a new forum from scratch because we had already become accustomed to it and had posted several stuff so we just kept the forum. That's why it's always been saracens.top-board.com.

Now getting to the point, I've been told our forum is hard to find (?) compared to some other known clan forums. So I was thinking that maybe the domain name is a cause of this, as it might be hard to remember seeing as it has no relevance to our ingame name or tag. Unlike a few years ago I now have the option to change the domain name of this forum to anything that we wish, but the question is do we want to change it? I want to hear opinions from everyone, and what they think before we make a decision.

No other domain was bought, but if you meant eighthavenuefuries.co.nr that was just a free domain that would redirect you to this domain.

Brian is talking about eaf-gang.com. We can put forum link on it and do a little SEO for the domain name which will bring it on top of google search list on people searching by tags like eaf or eighth avenue furies

I don't see the need to have a "publically known" forum. As long as our members and applicants from Argonath knows it I think it's good.

And yes, these forums could be linked in the eaf-gang.com and finally finish the site >.>

It just requires a little bit of work and time.

Yeah we can have a link on the main site (If ever its completed lol) that'll link people to the forum, that's a certain. The question was if we wanted to change the forum domain name to something else. As it stands so far, we'll be keeping saracens.

It's been quite boring lately for me since I have not much to do and Argonath is always empty when I'm online. Since I really want to test a new website design I had in mind but don't have any projects to work on, how 'bout I try a shot at making one for EAF?

As a Furie you have the right to build a website under the name of the clan, though it won't be made official unless me or Denlow states that it is.
