Write an Elevator Pitch / Tagline

Note:

We are closing this domain naming thread. It is asking the entirely wrong question. See this blog post for details: Domain Names: Wrong Question

We're going to keep the name gaming.stackexchange.com. But we WILL be setting up redirects from the more "popular" domains names (e.g. seasonedadvice.com to cooking.stackexchange.com, basicallymoney.com to money.stackexchange.com, and others as we go through the list).

New question: "Write and Elevator Pitch / Tagline!"

Click here to contribute ideas and vote.

[original message text below]


Post your ideas for a dot-com domain name for this website, which captures the spirit and intent of the site, namely:

{name} is intended for expert and advanced gamers on all consoles and computers, including, but not limited to...

  • Windows PC
  • XBox and XBox 360
  • Playstation
  • Playstation Portable
  • Nintendo Wii
  • Nintendo DS

Please follow these guidelines:

  • Check to see if the domain is taken or squatted before making the name suggestion. Squatted and taken names, however clever, are not helpful. You can use whois.net to check availability.
  • Post one domain per answer. This makes the voting process much easier. If domains are very similar (e.g. "game" and "games"), they can be in the same answer.
  • Make sure the domain wasn't already suggested. To search within this question, use a search query such as: inquestion:1 "example.com" replacing example.com with the domain to search for.
  • When coming back to this question, make sure to sort the answers "newest first", as to not miss new proposals.

@Robert - I posted the information as an answer because I couldn't edit the question - it's not Community Wiki –  ChrisF Jul 7 '10 at 21:31

Aw, all the ones I wanted to suggest are registered. Does it have to be .com and not .net? Anyway, since they're taken but to get them off my chest anyway: killscreen.com, pausescreen.com, heylisten.com –  Matt Blaine Jul 8 '10 at 10:17

@Matt: I had thought of killscreen.com as well, and was very bummed to see it unavailable. It would certainly fit with the "failure" theme started by Stack Overflow and Server Fault. –  gnovice Jul 8 '10 at 16:29

HeyListen would have been awesome. I just raided TVtropes for a few gaming trope suggestions, for a moment it was looking like all of them had been squatted though. –  Noctrine Jul 8 '10 at 18:20

anyone else a little nervous about how this is going? –  antony.trupe Jul 11 '10 at 1:22

What point is there in downvoting suggestions you don't like? Just upvote the ones you do like... yikes! –  delete me Jul 13 '10 at 15:50

@antony - that's a problem. I started a meta suggestion on this: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/56904/… –  delete me Jul 13 '10 at 16:38

Someone seems to downvoted all new suggestions. Few at 0, few at -2, loads at -1 –  Macha Jul 13 '10 at 18:25

I'll be amazed if anything makes it over 10. I wish I had the rep necessary to view the actual upvotes. –  Noctrine Jul 13 '10 at 20:32

Since the site went public, upvotes started really flowing in. –  badp Jul 15 '10 at 10:02

quicksave.com

(Taken, but maybe...)

as opposed to quickload.com

Joel says taken does not necessarily mean impossible

Since console games don't offer quicksave, you may consider this as a:

"quick - save my char from dying in this unpauseable game"

These are two of the best names possible, and based on Joel's post in the SO blog they should be okay (they are squatted on, not actually used). –  Oak Jul 14 '10 at 13:03

Far, far better than pauseforhelp IMO. –  Macha Jul 14 '10 at 14:07

+1000 for quicksave.com, very memorable, I approve –  Corey Jul 14 '10 at 17:23

@anthony.trupe you're right. Following the comments I assume the upvotes count for quicksave.com and I separated of quickload.com. @Everybody-who-disagrees is asked to swap his votes –  Zommuter Jul 16 '10 at 6:08

It doesn't flow well, imho; no ring to it. "Hey man, where did you find that out?" "Oh, I asked it on PauseForHelp." –  Corey Jul 9 '10 at 1:41

@Corey: it could be that it's 3 words... where as the trilogy has kept to a 2 word domain name. –  Alastair Pitts Jul 9 '10 at 1:58

Just curious: Is this a meme to gaming enthusiasts? Or is it just exactly what it sounds like? –  Robert Cartaino Jul 13 '10 at 20:00

@Robert I think it's exactly what it sounds like. –  Noctrine Jul 13 '10 at 21:09

@Robert: It was just me brainstorming (hence the other tens of suggestions). It's something I do often in games: pause to look up help or walkthroughs or some other assistance. –  Jeff Yates Jul 14 '10 at 2:50
5  
@Robert There's 2 interpretations - either you pause and access the in-game help menu, or you pause the game so you can run to the instruction manual / online to look up how to get yourself out of a jam. –  Grace Note Jul 14 '10 at 14:01

Grr, all the good domains are being squatted on. How about:

Similar to 99percentcomplete.com, but less "spammy" looking and 2 words.

I think we're going to have to clean this question up, either by deleting negative answers, or creating a new question with less options. It's become a pain to browse through them all, and very few have positive votes. (commenting here to get some visibility) –  jmfsg Jul 19 '10 at 13:50

gameover.com

displays a maintaince page for over 2 years according to the Internet Archive, so it might be buyable (creds to Ivo Flipse)

nope, subdomains are still in use, so no continues left!

You're right the justification should read: "A PC gaming bias to the name, but we all know true gamers are PC gamers." –  GAThrawn Jul 28 '10 at 19:56

It states it is for sale. While this originates from a specific game franchise, Mortal Kombat, I think it is sufficiently ingrained in gaming culture to be used more generically.

A lesson hard-learned:

Looking around it seems people apply this advice to all sorts of things, but I always thought of it in terms of RPGs.
