Topic: Who got their hands slapped at namepros?
I notice rlm's post about dn.ca was quickly deleted.
I was also had my hand slapped for posting in the pink.com topic linking to my pink.ca here.
This is against the rules young man, thou cannot post a competing forum on our forum.
So I ended up chatting with Eric Lyon and he seemed a bit sympathetic. I said dozens of blogs will post a snippet on namepros and then link back to the blog. Once on the blog members will respond on the blog and discuss the subject.
I mean really, how different is a forum like ours, technically it is just a blog. In fact most blogs use the Disqus comment system which can basically be set up like a forum.
I said to Eric that once we grow he will miss a whole lot of discussions that we would have posted on namepros creating traffic for both sites.
I even asked him if we could somehow become partner sites. He said he would think about it.
Next second, everything was deleted and whenever someone writes dn.ca it changes to [rule_violation]
So at this point I discussed this with @rlm and he said the best thing we can do is not post in the .ca discussion section at namepros anymore to drive the discussion over to here. That really pained me to do because I like namepros but nonetheless I said my good byes in the .ca section and will no longer be posting there.
I ask all Canadian domainers to do similar and help support our forum to turn it into THE source for Canadian domaining content.
A special thanks to rlm who was instrumental with his advice and guidance when we opened dn.ca
I am hard at work helping with the launch of DN.ca
