    Logo

    Yesterday I was testing internet on my mobile phone and thought of visiting NB. I visited NetBuilders.com and was surprised to see a complete new NB. After scrolling around I noticed that I was at wrong NB. The real NB is NetBuilders.org

    This was the first I learned NetBuilders is ".org" and not ".com".

    So I request Wil to add ".org" to the logo. There's already one (over the NB symbol) but that doesn't stand out. We need to add it to the "stand out" part, the "netbuilders" written in bold/big font.

    Thanks

    I don't think we're leaking any traffic to the .com version (maybe one or two visitors but nothing special)

    I agree that maybe that .org could stand out a bit more in that logo, still I'm not sure we're gonna keep this theme for long, so I'd better wait to hear what's Will's opinion.

    I'm going to go with my usual strategy and start a poll on forum themes.

    I have just one major task to accomplish first...
    Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory
    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    What if I just tell someone "Check out this awesome forum called Net Builders!". They will head to NB.com and not NB.org. If they go to the wrong site they may just shut the browser and not Google it too.

    I have to agree add a more standing out .org.

    This is true, but I don't see how a larger .org would help someone that has been told to visit Netbuilders to visit .org instead of .com

    He hasn't been there yet, right?

    I have to agree add a more standing out .org.

    So make sure you point out that it's on netbuilders.org and not .com, and that will solved the problem

    That's my technique too, when someone tells me 'I like toobee' for example, I'll never browse to 'toobee.com'. Instead I type in toobee in Google and see where it leads me too

    It would be nice though to own to let the .com redirect to .org but I don't see that happen, and for me it's not necesarry

    I wasn't talking about those people. I was talking about NetBuilders users. Like I am a member here but I didn't knew that the URL of NB has a ".org" rather than a ".com".

    I agree, the ".org" should really be emphasized. I myself visited netbuilders.com at first though I'm already registered to this forum. Most people may google it if they were directed to a new site and some people might think that the netbuilders forum that they've first visited was gone and replaced already.
