Thankfully for us both, this isn’t a debate. :)

For various reasons related to our WordPress trademark, we ask if you’re going to start a site about WordPress or related to it that you not use “WordPress” in the domain name. Try using “wp” instead, or another variation. We’re not lawyers, but very good ones tell us we have to do this to preserve our trademark. Also many users have told us they find it confusing.

If you already have a domain with “WordPress” in it, redirecting it to the “wp” equivalent is fine, just as long as the main one users see and you promote doesn’t contain “WordPress.”

“WordPress” in sub-domains is fine, like, we’re just concerned about top-level domains.

We’ve told this to anyone who has ever asked us, we just wanted to make it public so more people could be aware of this policy.

I applaud your efforts, and hope your intention is at least to make the theme available publically.

I’m keeping this topic open for now, but it’s on my watch list because it’s already breaking some rules. If it gets too rowdy in here I’m locking it up. :)
