Do you like the name PeachParts.com?

I know there is no democracy here, but I think the fellow forum member should at least be heard.

So do you like the domain name peachparts.com? Yes or No.
And please be serious with your answer so the poll doesn't get skewed.

If you want me to answer truthfully, you need to add - I don't care.

1 vote for - I don't care.

A rose by any other name would still smell as sweet.

+1 What's the issue with a different domain name? If there was an underlying technical issue, perhaps, but name only? Nahh.

I don't like the name, but I fall into the WGAS camp. The site is the same and the information is the same. That's all that matters.

I just think it will be more difficult for new people to find the forum. The name is anything but descriptive.

Exactly, I don't really even notice it when using the forum.....but I have a feeling it will have a long term negative impact.

However, the peachparts name is still a bad choice...I vote a solid "No."

Having Mercedes in your name just limits you. Peachparts opens up other opportunities. Peachautoparts might be even better.

But, what about us snooty folks, who need cliquessness and a feeling of exclusitivity in order to, well, just be?

How come it still says MercedesShop at the top of this page?
I too think the domain name will make the place harder to find. Plus it just sounds weird to say "I read this on PeachParts OD forum" as opposed to "I read this on Mercedesshop OD"
