There's a post on WPCandy mentioning that http://wpquestions.com is for sale. Some comments there have compared it to this site, suggesting the possibility of some sort of partnership.

Would a partnership be a viable idea, or could the domain be acquired for a redirect - similar to http://nothingtoinstall.com, or even https://askubuntu.com/?

Well, a few issues off the top of my head

  1. We've strongly de-emphasized custom domain names, for reasons both technical (it makes unified logins incredibly difficult, and nobody knows these sites are part of a network when they all have different names) and practical (naming is ridiculously difficult, takes forever, and is kind of a distraction.)

  2. The actual domain is a pay-for-service affair, which is.. kind of antithetical to everything we stand for. If we assumed the domain, it'd be like a staunch republican switching districts to a heavily democratic area. There will be confusion, and a lot of it, and perhaps even some brand poisoning by association.

I appreciate the heads up, but it feels like a bad fit... I'd be happy to entertain any evidence to the contrary.

As this site is called WordPress Answers I know that wpanswers.com is not being use. (The site is run on WP>org and the only post is the default admin post!)

So I would say to use that.

  • I still like answers.wordpress.org ;) but that could only happen in the future when WP.SE's SEO pushes forth in Google page rankings. – Zack Mar 2 '11 at 6:23
