PostSubject: DimeStore Saints Merger Discussion Thread   Tue Feb 17, 2009 4:37 am

Vibes, who owns the Dime Store Saints site, has kindly offered to merge with us should we be interested.

I personally like the idea, but have a few questions.

I have decided to make this a public thread, well, because we are all punks and all and this seems like a fair way to proceed.

1. Financially who is going to be paying for dimestoresaints?

2. Next is material. Is dss just going to redirect here (an idea I really
like as there url is much better than ours) if they are not are we
going to be rebuilding from scratch or is there a way of transfering
all of our messages over there?

Can you answer these questions please vibes?

Chris

I don't like the idea of starting from scratch because this place is really cool, really well laid out and has some killer posts. (THE PANTS THREAD).

A re-direction from dimestoresaints.com to here would be pretty cool. And maybe we name the forum Dimestore Saints on the logo or something.

it's a cool idea of linking the 2 sites and changing the name on the logo (i didn't even know about dimestoresaints.com till just now! yoink!) but would be ace if we could keep all our threads and they link to ours maybe? like stalls_standing said about the pants! we don't want to loose that gem! somebody think of the pants!

I'll shell out the $8 a year for the domain name. That's no problem. I'm working with the guy who runs 18 Miles a Minute to possibly take over that.

I haven't posted content to DimestoreSaints ever so the content thing isn't an issue. All we'd have to do is change the name of this forum.

Only 8 bucks is nothing - I can help chip in for a few years or something, I love the url name 'dime store saints' and it will make this forum easier to find and more consolidated - now ... how to change it and not lose any of our data!

It seems possible to do it, but a bit complex, this is what is written:

--------------

Personalized domain nameYou don't have a personalized domain name for your forum. You can have one in the credits management , either you can indicate below a domain name that already belongs to you and which you have configured to use with your forum.Domain Name :http://
Configuration of an external domain name.<blockquote class="perso_domain_explain">When
you choose the sub-domain which you wish to use on your forum
(forum.my_domain, for example, is a sub-domain of my_domain), you have
to create the corresponding CNAME entrance in the DNS administrator of
your domain: a CNAME entrance allows to point an url towards the other
one in a transparent way. in this way, you can link forum.my_domain to
adress.my_forum.

Any recorder of domains names possesses different interfaces, and thus different methods to create such CNAME.

However, in a general way, the process takes place as follows:


  • Connect to your user account on the site of your domain name provider, and go to the DNS management.
  • Check that the chosen sub-domain is not already used.
  • In the generally entitled field "source", "origin", or "alias"
    enter the prefix of sub-domain (i.e. "Forum" if you want to use the
    sub-domain forum.my_domain).
  • In the generally entitled field "destination" or " target host ", enter the original url of your forum, adress.my_forum.
  • You will maybe have to inform the TTL (Time To Live): give the maximal possible value.


After validation, you should obtain a line of this type:
-------------

CNAME
Hôte Direct towards
forum.my_domain adress.my_forum

Of course, we invite you to consult FAQs, even to contact your host support.</blockquote>

the redirect here is the simplest and best way, I like what you have done... finding this forum if you could not remember which order to put big forum pro in took forever!

I do think we should get KTP on doing a new logo/flyer and stickers.

the only thing we have left to do is raise funds to do a google adword program

so...are we gonna link it to the home page or what? i wouldn't push for it, but it's pretty inconvenient as is, and would confuse first-time visitors. what's the point of that portal thing anyway?

btw, nice banner

The Portal is for news and announcements, it's pretty standard for free forums
