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 rpg.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 an Elevator Pitch / Tagline!"

Can you please indicate if your suggestion is available or taken. Check here.

  • \$\begingroup\$ discussing domain names will most likely end with some annoying person buying the agreed one just to be a jerk. I hope it doesn't happen, but I feel it would be better the brainstorming is done through a different mean with selected people (chosen by the diamond users) \$\endgroup\$ – Stefano Borini Aug 20 '10 at 12:59

    \$\begingroup\$ I note there isn't 'one suggestion per answer' in the question. Should there be? \$\endgroup\$ – Tobiasopdenbrouw Aug 21 '10 at 18:49
  • \$\begingroup\$ @RMorrisey why remove names already taken? There's a number of domains that are being squatted, so if it fits our needs better it may be possible to still get it. Take a look at the post about domain names: blog.stackoverflow.com/2010/07/domain-names \$\endgroup\$ – Agent_9191 Aug 22 '10 at 18:18

    \$\begingroup\$ We have to have some cheesy catchphrase like "Putting the Quest in Question" \$\endgroup\$ – LeguRi Aug 25 '10 at 20:20
  • \$\begingroup\$ I think the name should sound useful and practical as a source of information first, funny or in-joke-laden second. For that, the domain name should be self-explanatory or nearly so. Something like askroleplayers.com (which I've suggested). \$\endgroup\$ – SevenSidedDie Aug 29 '10 at 21:39
  • \$\begingroup\$ Extra points for being "like" the normal SE names (two words, first starting with an S) and not bizarrely crypto-fantastical \$\endgroup\$ – mxyzplk says reinstate Monica Aug 31 '10 at 12:53
  • \$\begingroup\$ So when does this question end? When the beta is over? \$\endgroup\$ – Maximillian Sep 21 '10 at 22:33
  • \$\begingroup\$ @LeguRi: what about "Accepting the Quest of your Question!"? \$\endgroup\$ – yhw42 Sep 28 '10 at 21:03
  • \$\begingroup\$ @yhw42 - The possibilities are endless!! :D \$\endgroup\$ – LeguRi Sep 29 '10 at 0:31
  • \$\begingroup\$ @MadMaxJr - It looks like some initiative has been taken based on this thread: askthetable.com and stackofdice.com have both been purchased by Stack Overflow Internet Services, Inc. Perhaps a mod should close this and open a tie-breaker question? \$\endgroup\$ – LeguRi Sep 29 '10 at 0:34
  • \$\begingroup\$ @C. Ross @Bryant - Looks like there will be no domain name after all: see Public Service Announcement: ongoing, offsite discussion about Area51 graduates' branding Anyone else find it a little sketch that that decision was made after buying the domains we voted on? \$\endgroup\$ – LeguRi Oct 3 '10 at 13:43

Available. Has a double-entendre, playing on "stack exchange" and on "stacking the deck" in favour of a better game. Though, I think a better variation on that double-entendre can probably be done. Someone do it!

Saving Throw (savingthrow.com). Pleasingly like "Stack Overflow" etc. Taken but being used by a 17 year old on his blog, I imagine the SE guys could bribe him easily :-)

\$\endgroup\$
  • \$\begingroup\$ I love this one, and I'm upvoting it, and I claim it's generic because, um... Tunnels and Trolls uses saving throws as well. So the first two fantasy RPGs use the term. Yep. \$\endgroup\$ – Bryant Aug 31 '10 at 14:07
