Suggestion for a new URL

Post by T-Bone »

It's a reoccurring problem that people mistake Löve's name for "love2D", because of the url. Maybe we should move to another url, just to avoid confusion. I guess we could register www.löve.org, but that's a bit tricky to type, so I have a much better suggestion: www.♥.org

Much better, right?

We could use löve but keep love2d.org too, making it redirect to löve
lf = love.filesystem
ls = love.sound
la = love.audio
lp = love.physics
lt = love.thread
li = love.image
lg = love.graphics

Well, that domain name seems to be abandoned.

Also here's what I've found out:
Created by Registrar: 101Domain, Inc.
Domain Registration Date: 2014-07-11T19:53:56Z
> Domain Expiration Date: 2016-07-10T23:59:59Z <
Domain Last Updated Date: 2015-05-10T13:05:57Z
Maybe we could try to register it next year?

Long time ago, before Love2D existed, I registered L0V.net (note: three characters with a zero instead of O)

It's on the GoDaddy auctions if anybody wants to make a bid:

Can we really register domains with those kind of characters ?
That's awesome.

EDIT: Ah! We can't..

There are working URLs with emojis in them, but maybe .org doesn't allow them like that?

As a point of historical interest... why is there an ö and not an o?
