I was thinking of buying www.egoboogame.com and setting up the Egoboo site there. Getting a 1 gb with limitless brandwith, registering, etc. etc. will cost about 52 USD. I will try to link the oldest official site and the current one I use to the new site. Maybe I could even open a PayPal donation account for supporting the site (Maybe even giving a small reward bonus, such as special classes/modules for donators). Anyways back to the real point this would give Egoboo a proper domain and make it appear more easy in google search (Thus increasing amount of visitors).

Maybe in the future the site could do some sort of revamp. Updating the site would go much faster than using sourceforge. If needed we could use the site for downloads, SVN and such, keeping all "official" Egoboo stuff in one place.

Waddya folks think?

Is the 1GB limit, unlimited bw, real appeal? I guess you could host some videos, audio, and better graphics. Someone could also make some kind of flash site or something?

Other than that, the only other benefit would be that we could host a server list when/if the internet play goes live.

The Good
(if so)
-More visitors
-More support
-Longer lasting site

The Bad (is so)
-Lack of support (activity, donations and whatnot)

So my response is "I don't know". Whatever happens, I'll ride along.

Yes, but still. All sites that most languages view are .com and some of them aren't commercial.

Mainly I planned to use this new place as a replacement for http://home.no.net/egoboo and really make this the brand new site for Egoboo (All egoboo related news -> go to here!). As bgbirdsey says, this also opens possibilities to create a more fancy looking site (flash for example). The space on the site is limited to 1 gb, unless I pay more (Around 2 USD per 1 gb).


@sven:
.com is the most used one. Most people from most countries recognize .com as the most common one for internet pages.

.com is also free to register (but not to buy). Other alternatives are .net or .org


On this site the latest news, devpack, egoboo version, links to the forum, etc. etc. would be placed.


Come to think of it, I should have more or less access to the Sourceforge Egoboo website too. But I've always found Sourceforge messy to work around with and havent figured out that Shell extension thingy for FTP website access.

you can redirect the sourceforge website wherever you want.

I was thinking of the webspace/website the Egoboo Project currently uses on sourceforge ( http://egoboo.sourceforge.net/ ). Replacing or renewing it is what I am talking about.

Yeah. I was just agreeing with you that it might be easier to host the website elsewhere and use sourceforge's option to set the homepage to your new site. That's what I did for SoulFu, the "homepage" is the SoulFu forum.

Rewards for donating? No. Instead, how about selling copies of Egoboo on CD? Or some other Egoboo merchandise? Like posters???

Selling an incomplete game = Bad idea.

Selling Egoboo isn't really a good idea because people can get it for free anyways and can redistribute it without anyone preventing them from doing it, according to the GPL license.

I think donations are cool, I even made a website trying to make a new Egoboo "official" site here: http://egoboo.taxiwin.com/ with a PayPal link included, as Zefz mentioned.

Oh, and the idea of a Flash site sounds excellent, I am very good at making flash sites, just give me a list of what you need done and you'll have it ready, but it will have lots of controversies, because not everyone has a flash player and it loads slow for all the dial-up users.

http://www.taxiwin.com/ - This is my demonstration, but the problem is that I don't have much ideas for a good website, this is what my father told me to do and we worked together to establish the website.
