    First, does it even matter much? Also, don't .nets cost money too?

    Still, if Kivan so chose, he could make a claim against the .com version, to which it would be quite possible he would win. They transfer the names to those with a good case for them.

    Why are you complaining for that redirection?
    just type www.gbatemp.net, if you want them to not redirect then buy them a domain <_<

    Hopefully, Kivan will be making a reappearance soon. Still, I was only throwing out a hypothetical, as he is within his rights to make a case for it if he so chose.

    Do you just like trying to argue with me? [​IMG]

    I retired from that game long ago. [​IMG]

    that's because you "live and die miserably alone"
    you're much to much alone and lost the way of the humanity

    who cares gbatemp.net .org .com .blabla just hit startpage et voila!

    Here's also why....

    .com = COMmercial site, business, etc.
    .net = NETwork, in the same sense that GBATemp is
    .org = ORGanization, less like GBATemp but often contains a forum nonetheless
    .gov = US GOVernment. They jacked the .gov extension... every other national government must use their national, two-letter extension (example: Gov.ab.ca for the Alberta Government (Canada))

    .com doesn't fit this site at all, or even half the .coms out there already...

    -Tempest out.-
