We have a few potential names already, but are open to further suggestions.

We will narrow down the names to a manageable number then submit them to the forum for a vote.

Please post suggestions here.

"Debatefans.com" was my suggestion so I'll see if I can think of another.

How about "debatedmates.com"?

I actually had an idea close to that, called DebateMates. But I thought it sounded like a dating service more than a fan site.

Eggleston, most of us aren't british, so Volkov is right on that account.

DDominators makes it sound like a clan, not a fansite.

hmm...

Could just make it DDO.org maybe. Or DDOers.org. Plausible deniability either way.

Debate Domination Organization is an infringement of copyright?

See, plausible deniability. And Ragnar proposing a COMPROMISE of all things lol.

(Btw, you don't seem to know how one goes about infringing copyrights. Debate.org is a TRADEMARK, not a copyright).

Call it Discuss-DDO or something like that ... the name needs to sound as catchy spoken as it appears logical when typed.

As for trademarks and copyright ... it's trademark protection that would apply in this case, and yes, I would think that significant enough confusion could apply so as to necessitate changing the name. Trademark infringement claims can not be rebutted by plausible deniability, because intent is irrelevant.

I still think ddofans is the best.

It contains 'ddo' which is obvious and easy to remember, but won't step on any toes.

It's similar to DebateFans which is pretty much the point.

Alright, so, we have some good suggestions so far.

Not counting "masterdebators"....

DDOFans
DDO.org (we'll see if that is against trademark laws)
DDOrks
DDOminators.com

Plus...
YourDDO
DebateNation
DDOFeed
DDOPlus

It's good so far, lets keep those names coming!

This website is called debate.org. It is not called DDO, the company is not called DDO. DDO is an acronym spontaneously developed by the users of the website.

No one outside of the DDO community will know that DDO means debate.com so there shouldn't be any problems from the administration either.

What I am saying is, DDO.com remains a possibility, and a pretty good one at that.

ddo4u.org?

or ddo4u.us, it's on sale for 10 dollars cheaper :).
