SaveCOH.com subdomains redirects
« on: September 14, 2012, 09:15:29 PM »
I've created a few subdomain redirects for folks to use for their print flyers or web banners.

petition.savecoh.com  - Change.org petition
faq.savecoh.com - Save City of Heroes FAQ
write.savecoh.com - Call to action: Write to NCSoft
masks.savecoh.com - Call to action Masks & Capes
titan.savecoh.com - Save Paragon City forum

If anyone needs any more redirects please post.

So you are the one who stole the domain before I could register it.

Do you have any plans for the main domain, or can you point it to http://savecoh.blogspot.com ?

(For that, make the CNAME of www.savecoh.com point to ghs.google.com and let me know.)

LOL Yes I stole them, by paying for them on Sept 4th. ;)  I'd rather not have the main domain be a redirect, so if you want to recreate your site, contact me and I can set up WordPress and let you have at it.

Even if it's just a splash screen with a redirect, the root page needs something.

Re-posting what I wrote in the consolidation thread:

Quote
When the coordination efforts were getting off the ground, I went ahead and secured two domain names: savecoh.com and savecityofheroes.com.  I can easily host the domains but my time is limited on website/page creations at this time.  So if we have some folks that have time to make a simple clean consolidation page, I can upload it and have something under that domain.

Configuring it as he requested wouldn't make it a redirect. A redirect means you land on the domain and then forward to another URL. Changing the CNAME would mean that his site would actually be at the savecoh.com domain as an alias, no redirects required.

Of possible interest:

That option isn't available since the domain is being hosted.

Re-posting what I wrote in the consolidation thread:

Well once I'm finished with this bloody video, if nobody else has done anything, I can work on it. We just need some notes for what we want it to say and look like.

The Titan forums seem to be serving as the web portal for all campaign activities at the moment. But it can't hurt to have a big link pointing to the petition, some key news articles, maybe a video embed. I don't think it needs to be very complex and need a nav bar or anything. Anyone else have any thoughts on this?

I'm not trying to distract from Titan at all, I have enough to do on the Repeat Offenders site/forum.  I am only providing a easier to remember direct link to some complied information. Much like what Leandro already has on his blog.  So I'll try and work with him to see what we can do about having my domain and his blog become friends.

(Right now it's being stubborn, thanks for the info via PM, titan admin! ;) )

Meanwhile, the offer of subdomains still stands for those who may need one.

Oh, I wasn't accusing you of trying to steal anyone's thunder. It's definitely good to note that while the forums are a good tool, people would rather see a static page with all critical information that they need without having to sift through threads. And if they want to get more involved than that, they can always make an account.

Looks like we got everything worked out for www.savecoh.com  :D  Thanks to Leandro there's a landing portal for all things releated to the SaveCOH movement. 

YAY!  Now folks can make swag without long URLS :D Awesome
