Because we do not own OC.net, please refrain from using "OC.net" as a short form for Overclock.net. I am sure many people have and will accidentally type in OC.net. Right now there is nothing at that domain. But who knows in the future...

Some suggested new short forms for the site (that we own):

ocing.net (we own overclocking.net too)
ocforum.net
ocing.com (we don't own overclocking.com though
)

Not sure if that would cost extra money or something, but could you register the oc.net domain and set it up as a redirect here?

I have tried to negotiate but the price is much too steep. I will not divulge the price but I'll put it this way, you could buy at least one new car with the money.

Domain names are like virtual real estate. Our own forum related names are worth a small fortune themselves

Wow, and here I thought it would cost $50 at the max
Oh well, I refer to it as overclock.net anyway just cause I don't like shorten forms of stuff for some reason.

I thought THE OC was a tv show, or movie, or something?

I see what admin means, the ownere company doesn't look liek one who is willing to play for small chips.

Also I know I am guilty of using it often, have you guys setup a replace query to clean all of the posts that say if incorrectly, or could you setup a code that will automatically raplace the incorrect name when we post to alleviate future problems?

How about we have a smiley called
c or
c.net that will display a small overclock.net logo or something.....

I'd say that the main overclock.net logo (flame+text) but smaller would be pretty good.
