View Full Version : .com or geocities, YOU decide!

06-14-2003, 05:02 PM
Alright, there has been much talk about which site we should use but no one has started a poll! So here you go! Vote in the poll and lets get it over with...BTW, this is about the use of the .com or geocities site.

06-14-2003, 05:12 PM
I say .com

I really like it, but I don't know how expensive it is.

One prob with the geocities is how only the middle page is the browser.

06-14-2003, 07:25 PM
.com is cool

They made the site that way...for the center to be the browser.

Anyway, Geocities is not all that bad, but I like www.tripod.com better.

More space, ect, ect, ect.

06-14-2003, 07:36 PM
My favorite free provider is topcities.com

Good space for free, just 1 banner add/page.

06-14-2003, 07:43 PM
There is really nothing to vote on since we both have websites for our own reasons.

I like the .com one.

Well the .com sounds great but it would involve someone paying for the website name and possibly renting space from a server if no one has a perm connecting pc that we could use.

I didnt know you people disliked the geocities site so much :(

*sobs in a corner*

06-16-2003, 06:13 PM
They both have their advantages...but a .com would be superior.

Sorry for my absence, I haven't been able to log-in ever since that stupid hacker busted the site. I think my account was one of those "new accounts afftected," just my luck.

But alas, now I can login and continue to have fun and throw in my two cents!

Dont feel bad Wraithy...

06-16-2003, 08:52 PM
Yeh now you make me feel bad.

how about this:

geocities is really cool because I'm on the member list there!

I like geocities alot, I just with that the browser was the whole page, not just the center.

06-16-2003, 09:55 PM
Well, here's what I think. The website is the same on both sites at this point, correct? Which one is faster? Which has fewer ads? Which has more space? Which is cheaper ;)? If we have no problem paying for the .com, I think it's the obvious choice. No offense to the people who made the Geocities site, but come on :)! We have a .com just sitting there, not being used; I think we should put it to some good use.

06-16-2003, 10:06 PM
Exactly my point. But if we have to use the geo one them I'm fine with that. I would rather have the .com one though:D

06-16-2003, 10:10 PM
Well, I actually looked at the .com one, and I have to say it's pretty damn nice. Sorry Wraith, but my vote is going with the .com.

Well, we could update the .com one and use the geo for a backup.
just an idea.;)

I really really like the .com a lot better. The way it looks makes me want to visit the site more often. It looks very professional as well, I love the interface. .COM ALL THE WAY BABY *slaps Set's ass* :eek: hahahahhaaaaa

06-17-2003, 01:47 PM
.com one loaded way faster than the geocities one for me. Really, I like 'em both, but the geocities one took a while to load for me. I'm on a 56k till september.

Also, if we kept the .com one how much would it cost? I like the geocities one 'cause i'm on the member list!

I understand Wraith, and i know i'd want to be involved with it if i were you too. Why don't you both share admin levels on the .com site and work towards making it the official and only =A= site. That way you both have control and you get to share good ideas. If its to be the offical one, u being the co-leader etc will mean u probably get final say anyway.

06-17-2003, 02:25 PM

Thats what we are trying to do but Wraith has to learn how to use php ;)

As soon as he can learn to post news and stuff he knows his admin user info.

06-17-2003, 03:07 PM
Oh, sorry about that. :blush2:
Hope Wraith's a quick learner!:D

06-17-2003, 11:58 PM
I really like the geocities site also, just hasn't been updated for a while.

BTW, i'm on members list now. :)

06-18-2003, 06:05 PM
doto como

06-18-2003, 07:08 PM
It seems the dot com one is going to win.

06-18-2003, 09:26 PM
It seems the .com one is already up.


06-18-2003, 09:47 PM
Yes, and I'm listed as an active member.

Well, we'll see. :)

I've been going to the .com site recently...I really like it - a lot. So I think those of us who have free time should help out getting content from the old site to the .com site because it looks very professional, we are a serious PA so we should have a serious looking website which the .com outweighs the geo by far.
