BuddyPress domains, and questions

    To my understanding, we (users) should not use “buddypress” in our domain name, unless it’s on subdomain of another. But I’ve seen recently here, and I wonder again about domain policy.

    If the site is non-profit, dedicated to buddypress, can we use buddypress.tlds?

    Forum is not working correctly, I had to refresh 3 times to post this. So many 404 errors lately.

    @johnjamesjacoby exists also. These are basically just people willing to contribute and translate the BuddyPress core for people with native languages other than English.

    It’s really a fine line to try and walk, but unless the site is dedicated to only furthering the BuddyPress platform, it’s best not to use it in the domain name.

    Even the BuddyPress test site is and doesn’t use BuddyPress in the name.

    Example: If you made a website, even not for profit, and it had Sony in the name, and you didn’t have written permission from Sony, it wouldn’t be long before you’d get a letter in the mail from their lawyers asking to change it.

    We have a domain policy. If you follow it then I’m happy to link and reference your site from, if not, then I can’t.
