Postby Guest » Thu, 01 Sep 2005 5:15 pm

my friends building up an expat website in Shanghai, China and he wants a name for his website.

Since many name i came up with have been registered already, I have to ask you talent ppl for help.

I really don't wanna sound negative here, or try to burn down the house, but it is not a very good idea to ask this on a forum. The domain you would say you like from suggestions here, will most definately be gone by the time you try and claim it. Then you can buy it from the person here who suggested the name to you... :(

Think of all the derivatives of the two parts of the most important facts of the name you wish the site to go by....

Shanghai..............and..............forum..........and expat

Then think out of the box.....

How about for SHANGHAI
China
Orient


FORUM
group talk
Think in
Discussion
Interchange
Rap


EXPAT
Traveller
Wanderer
Wayfarer etc
Gypsy...?





What about .............Shanghaispeak????????..........Or Chinachatexpat..........

Orientalgypsyrap.........

Shanghaigyspyrap..........

Shanghaiexpatchat.......

Shanghaiexpatrap.........

OK, none of the above may be anywhere you want to go, but they're just thoughts..........

And as Eric says, be quick as these sites go quickly, and be VERY CAREFUL that you register with a well known site, as there are lots of cowboys out there......

I'd agree with both - not online . . .

What I find funny, though , is:
I have to ask you talent ppl for help



talent . . . foreign talent , as we are known. Well, the foreign part is true, the talent part less so. :lol:

Vaucluse, I guess the OP asked here because he/she must have noticed we have here a group of people who
- are able to elaborate a lot on many subjects
- can be creative (see other posts, you know what I mean)
- have obviously time to take care of others' business

So instead asking to an expensive consultant... here we go! :wink:

Indeed, CD - what I find frightening is the amount of time I can dedicate to this site and still get my work done. Guess I graduated first in delegating. :lol:
