ScoutsUpdate: Reminder we are still taking submissions for site names. I will be gathering the best of the best and putting up a poll in the next few days or so, then deciding from the top vote-getters.
Exciting news all! Our little experiment has thus far been a massive success. I am humbled and delighted by the success and popularity of our little site. Last month alone we had over 13,000 hits! And we are still growing! Our writers are putting out some fantastic articles, and our comment section if filled with some really great discussion. So today I’d like to announce that we are moving on to the next site to being all official and proper. We are getting corporate sponsorship! NASCAR has decided to step in and fund our little project. There will be videos and commentary, and Jeff Gordan’s face is going to be splattered all over the site. Of course that means that we will have to under go a little…redesign.
We are actually going to be getting an official domain name!
What? Yes, we will no longer be found at the terribly long and confusing: https://scoutsaysweitersisabust.wordpress.com/, but rather a full and proper domain name. What domain name you ask? Well, that’s up to you! As I’ve stated from the start, this site is built on it’s members. The writers, the commentators. So far I’ve been a little partial to Hardball Conversations, but that’s only been a placeholder for now. So get to suggesting. We can keep the HBC name, or we come up with something better together (That’s actually available as a domain name). So get your thinking caps on. There are still some behind the scenes things I have to work out and the process will likely take a week or so, so we are aiming for having a name in place in very early 2016. So what do you think? Do you like Hardball Conversations? Do you like something better? Keep in mind, it needs to be relatively short and easy to remember. It has to clearly show that we are a baseball discussion site, and it has to be something that’s currently available.
