    Though you were after just .COM domain, but since you had a .ORG submission.

    I wish you to reconsider this premium dictionary word .ORG domain which is a great fit for this project.

    -

    I got little confused with the initial post too.. This is mainly about - Co/Remote work, in that case I think Rob should Re Create this poll with New submissions to find a better/fitting name - IMO.

    The way I understand this is that it must relate to and encompass both Dojoing and Domaining at the same time, if not in the exact words then at least in the spirit of this combination:

    Dojoing + Domaining

    IMO

    I liked Collab.org . After seeing the list and taking a long break. It is the name i remembered and still found relevant for the concept

    (+) I think it will be in sync with eRise.org initiatives.
    (+) Name is open and relevant to any collaborative activities that can be pursued in these spaces. Domaining and more

    Though it doesn't explicitly mention domaining, you can add a tagline or other branding instruments to achieve it.

    I'm late to the party but I suggest:

    DojoTopia.com

    - Formed from Dojo + Utopia (a word with Greek origin)
    - Easy to say and sounds nice
    - Feels like a state of mind that can be fostered and aspired to

    Just noticed this thread...

    Perhaps consider Connyct.com. Its one I hand registered some time ago. Might be an appropriate brandable.

    Some decent names available for hand reg could work too...

    universaldojo.com
    dnremote.com
    dnhotspot.com
    domainermobile.com
    domainerconnect.com
    dnmgmt.com

    Just thought I would add a comment. :)

    That was my oversight. It should have been on the list. -- my copy-paste edit late at night while trying to get the poll out the door on Friday. I asked a Mod to edit it.

    Also, just FYI, poll responses can be updated. The poll will remain open for 7 days.

    DNCollab is also a strong contender. It may actually fit better with your recent DN+word services like DNProtect.

    That's what I've been saying .. there are so few opportunities to grow end user demand .. this could have been an extraordinary golden opportunity if the parameters of the brand focused on EVERYBODY interested in branding and domains, as opposed to just domainers. Huge difference in terms of opportunity with just one extra requirement for the brand.


    lol .. I'm seeing a trend here. That's the thing with @Rob Monster .. he's all about "Crawl > Walk > Run" .. or as I like to poke fun at him and say "Measure Once, Cut Twice" (instead of the popular saying "Measure Twice, Cut Once".

    The result is that unfortunately things change and pivot after the fact .. sometimes to the point where the original idea is completely gone. And done get me wrong .. that's normally a very good thing, particularly at the dawn of an idea, as it's always best to be flexible and incorporate new ideas, and perfect/tweak to make the overall better.

    The problem however, is that when you ask people to submit brands at the start before the first wave of tweaks are completed, you then end up with a very different entity after all the discussions, and that most of the brands are simply no longer relevant. The only two domains that tick off all the requirements that I think was wanted even by Rob (in the end) are NameNirvana and NameDojos (and the latter only if the brand is for the entire network, which it seems to be).

    I know it's frustrating for some .. but that's the way it is .. on the positive side, is that Rob does end up getting a lot done quickly with his methods with all his new projects (I can't really deny that .. lol) .. I just hope the extreme rushing does not result in looking back a year down the road at significant lost opportunities. That certainly won't always be the case ... but in this specific case again .. I really feel a game changer would be in making these locations inviting to end users to actually grow the demand on all our domains. These locations are PERFECT for that .. and the difference is effectively free with just an extra requirement in the brand.


    I've gotten used to the rushed tactics .. but I keep on mentioning it to him like I am here (nudge nudge Rob .. lol) in hope one day he learns to take a bit of extra time to plan, will lead to actually being better in the longer term ... or at least help make sure you start crawling in the right direction when doing the crawl > walk > run thing! ;)

    Frankly, the names are ok. But the best suited name is not listed here.

    Dwella.com

    Epik already owns this domain and should use it. Since I was aware of this, I did not pursue suggesting newer names :)

    Or DomainDojos.com for that matter ??? lol


    @Rob Monster .. could you checklist what requirements you're looking for that you've mentioned? It might help people understand what you're looking for and actually end up with votes based on what you're actually looking for as opposed to what they think you're looking for and/or simply the best sounding generic random brand.

    I've put my assumptions strictly based on what I've read as well as based on some of the candidates you've accepted .. but please copy/edit and correct based on exactly what you want at this point.


    Domain Dojos Brand should represent:

    (1) The locations?
    1 - Not necessarily, but preferred
    (1b) Are you looking for a brand for the network, or individual locations? (Singular v Plural)
    1b - Network (plural could be acceptable)

    (2) General concept of working remotely?
    2 - If possible

    (3) Implying the co-workspace concept/lifestyle?
    3 - Yes (PRIMARY FOCUS)

    (4) People getting together (not necessarily just at those locations)?
    4 - If possible +

    (5) keeping domains in focus?
    5 - Not necessarily ??? <--- This needs to be clear

    (6) Have all the other elements of a good domain name (Radio test, correct grammar, good/strong wordflow, have meaning to majority of intended target audience, etc)?
    6 - Yes-ish .. lol (No offence to C / y / b / r / t / r / k / s .. but is that really a choice?)

    (7) Brand needs to be understandable by people other than existing domainers?
    7 - No (because you included DN names that only domainers would get at first)

    (8) Will the project be for profit (Cafe/Hotel/etc)?
    8 - Maybe (given the inclusion of a .org, although .org's don't always need to be not for profit)

    (9 | My Extra .. lol) Brand encourages invitation for entrepreneurs and potential end users to come and work with domainers on helping brand their start-ups (and hopefully encourage sales)?
    E - No (this is the one I wished would be yes, but most names don't fit)


    I'm not saying what should or shouldn't be requirements .. I'm just saying what the requirements appear to be given the information at this point. The final requirements should really be up to you, even if I and others think differently.

    Obviously there are also different levels of relevance .. like a one-word domain scores signficantly higher in #6 that indeed it could merit overlooking the other requirements. The guidelines don't need to be absolutes, but it certainly would help clarify a lot for a lot of the people confused above.


    I really think all these parameters should have been discussed, debated and hammered out before inviting submissions .. but it is what it is .. also a lot of people have voted blindly without really knowing the actual preferred parameters .. kinda skews the results .. but that actually doesn't matter so much now because you've thankfully established that winner isn't necessarily the one with the most votes (a very good thing in general), but the vote at least would have had some meaning and be a little more helpful if the parameters were clear from the start. ;)


    PS .. I really do wish you'd reconsider including #9 above and include what @Lox and I have mentioned .. I really think that if this takes off that it would be a great idea. Everyone always complains that there's not much tangible we can do as a community to grow and encourage end user demand .. this really has the opportunity to be one of the very few tangible projects to actually do that! :)

    I thought CoThinker.com fits name selection criteria.

    I actually don't like DN+ brands for anything but things that are specifically targeted to existing domainers (not even new ones), because otherwise most people won't initially catch the DN reference. That being said .. if these locations are targeted only at existing domainers, then that's fine .. I just personally think the brand should try to be inviting and welcoming to newer domainers as well as non-domainers who want to know more about domains and hopefully entrepreneurs looking for domain names or looking for help branding or understanding the industry, etc etc .. again .. there is potentially a huge opportunity here if the concept were more towards being a place people go for branding help and domain suggestions for their businesses


    ummm .. that one does have an alternate meaning that might not attract the intended target audience! lol ;)

    Ya know....that's a very astute observation. I get what you mean. It just didn't occur to me before. Interesting that it occurred to you so quickly. ;)

    ADDED: 90% of the submissions AND votes are based on not really fully thinking or knowing who the actually intended end user is going to be .. it's like people don't even understand the purposed of getting a good domain/brand is to attract your target audience ... if you don't know your target audience then coming up with a proper name/brand is like throwing a dart off the Empire State Building with your target in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

    I said it before in some of the other contests .. "DN" has ZERO relevance to anybody but people ALREADY established in the industry .. picking a DN+ name is a really nice way to add a ton of confusion to your brand and alienate almost all walk-in traffic and lower your online click-through rate.

    It's not so bad when it comes to being very industry centric where your intended audience is only existing domainers. Again .. this is why I asked for clarity above. It makes a HUGE difference whether you want to invite non-experienced domains or not. Neither choice is necessarily wrong depending on what you want .. although for the reasons I've mentioned many times now, I think it would be a shame to make this limited ONLY to existing domainers. Not only that .. but I'm not even sure such hubs could even be finacially viable without having a bit of a wider scope.

    ADDED: Domainers would be VASTLY more willing to go and pay for the lodging knowing there was a regular stream of potential start-up entrepreneurs (aka END USERS $$$) coming for help with branding and domains!

    Not only that .. but even if an experienced domainer walks down the street and see DN+ .. they almost definitely will not make the very unexpected link to domain names unless there is further information available. They'll simply think it's a place named after Don Notts! :)
    (I know it's Don Knotts with a K, but I can't think of a DN celebrity at the moment .. lol)
