Title: Our new Name!
Post by: Pete on August 09, 2008, 10:28:15 pm
When I started this forum last August, the intent was for it to be a tech support forum to supplement my business.  Obviously the forum has taken a bit of a different turn (which is GREAT!), but now I'm thinking that the name "RTech Support Forums" doesn't really fit what the forum is all about now.

So I'm thinking of perhaps moving this forum to another domain name.  I'm not sure what yet, and that's where you all come in.  If you have any suggestions on what we could call this forum, I'm open to suggestions.  Domain names are cheap, and I could easily move everything that is existing on to the new domain name in pretty short order.

So give me your ideas!  This place has become a great place for Christian fellowship and edification, founded on the Love of God.  I'm looking for a name that reflects those values and principles.

UPDATE: 8/23/08

--- The new name has been chosen! ---

hisgraceoasis.com

Opening soon...

Christian Edification Fellowship Forum
Love of God Christian Edification Forum
Fellowship Forum For Christians
4 God So Loved Christian Forum
One In Love Christian Forum
God Is Good Edification Christian Forum
A More Excellent Way Christian Forum

I've put Christian in all headings for ppl searching on-line (google,etc.)

This is fun!

I'm sure I have additional titles in my head, just getting them out is the problem (http://www.rtechsupport.com/forum/Smileys/default/grin.gif)

Awesome suggestions everyone!  Keep them coming!

Also, suggestions for domain names to go along with the new name would be good too.

For those of you who may not be familiar with web-jargon, the domain name now is rtechsupport.com.  So the domain name is what you'll type in your address bar to get here.

Uhm, well I sorry I caused so much panning of the idea......I just had heard that "At the oasis..." going thru my head and the only thing I could put it to was coppa.......however, I did some research and there was a song along time ago....decades called "Midnight at the Oasis" and that was the tune I was remembering!  Here's the start of the song....

Midnight at the oasis
Send your camel to bed
Shadows paintin' our faces
Traces of romance in our heads

Heaven's holdin' a half-moon
Shinin' just for us
Let's slip off to a sand dune, real soon
And kick up a little dust

Come on, Cactus is our friend
He'll point out the way
Come on, 'til the evenin' ends
'Til the evenin' ends

I'd heard of it before, but couldn't think where - I actually thought it must be a biblical herb or something but couldn't find it in the concordance so I googled it and there it was, a leafy food plant.  I must have seen it in a recipe or maybe a gardening book.  I have this thing with words, once I see them they just stick in my head even if I don't know what they mean LOL!

It's a road sign in Canada.

Type the word 'sheep' on Google and click through the pages of images.

I'm surprised they didn't put this from the Batman tv show on the sign ...

Some good suggestions for the name Stephen, but please not Pleasant Haven - it sounds too much like an old folks' home!

I think I've come to a decision.

Unless someone can come up with a marvelous suggestion in short order, I really like the name;

His Grace Oasis
hisgraceoasis.com

The domain is available, I think it describes this place wonderfully, and something inside me jumped when I saw it.

This place is to be built upon the Love and grace of God, and I think that name fits nicely.


Last chance for input...  (http://www.rtechsupport.com/forum/Smileys/default/th_TFRD323.png)

His Grace Oasis sounds good to me.

I can only think of "Table Of Grace"?

Title: Re: A possible name change
Post by: Pete on August 23, 2008, 01:12:20 pm
They sure did!

Actually, the name hisgraceoasis.com was suggested by lovesblessing in our chat last night (all KINDS of stuff goes on in the chat room!)

We were talking, and I said I liked theoasisretreat.com for a name, but after your comment about it looking weird, and charity mentioned in the chat that it looked greek, I looked at it again and thought the same thing!  :D

So then I said, how about thegraceoasis.com, since just graceoasis.com was already taken.

And then, lb said the simplest thing.  "How about HIS Grace Oasis".   It was so simple!  Why hadn't I thought of it before?!  (http://www.rtechsupport.com/forum/Smileys/default/doh.gif)

Suddenly, something inside me JUMPED!  I REALLY liked that name, but surely it was already gone.  So over to my WHOIS search I went, and much to my surprise, it was available!

So I think that's it!  I'll wait just a little longer today for more comments, but I think I'm going to buy the domain name later this afternoon or this evening.

Then, I'll keep you all updated on the domain switch...

Get ready to update your bookmarks to HIS GRACE!  (http://www.rtechsupport.com/forum/Smileys/default/th_TFRD323.png)

I like the name too.  (http://www.rtechsupport.com/forum/Smileys/default/amen.gif)

By the way, I know it costs money to run a forum but have no idea how much.  Do you have a donation button anywhere or are you going to have one in the future?
Title: Re: A possible name change
Post by: Pete on August 23, 2008, 01:38:06 pm
I've pondered it, but at this time, I've decided against posting any donation button.  I've also decided against any type of advertising.

I may add a donation button later if the load gets to be such that I need a more expensive hosting package to support the greater membership numbers.  But I'll cross that bridge when I get to it...

When it comes time to renew the current hosting (which costs $49.95/6 months) and the domain name (which is another $9.95/year), I'll have another "pledge drive"  (http://www.rtechsupport.com/forum/Smileys/default/th_TFRD323.png).  Our last "pledge drive" lasted less than 24 hours before we had all the money we needed!  I think my renewal months are sometime around February and August.

But really, I'm not looking to make money off of this.  So long as my costs are covered, I'm cool.

Those are "post driven" titles.  After...  um, I think 500 posts, you become a "Hero Member".

The name change is final!

I just purchased hisgraceoasis.com

Thank you for all of your suggestions!  Over the next few days, I will begin the process of testing the new version of the forum software on the new domain.  Once I feel confident that everything is working properly, I will migrate all of the posts from rtechsupport.com to hisgraceoasis.com.

I purchased the domain name for 2 years, along with private registration (so that my home address and phone number isn't broadcast to the world!) for a total of $30.20.  If you would like to help offset this cost, please PM me for my PayPal info.

Get ready, cause here we go!  (http://www.rtechsupport.com/forum/Smileys/default/th_TFRD323.png)
