    Hi,

    I am thinking of opening a forum about a game. I have two beautiful domains.
    Which one do you think should I choose?

    exampleforum.com or example.net?

    So like

    Overwatch.net

    vs

    OverwatchForum.com

    ...

    or Terraria.net

    vs

    TerrariaForum.com


    I like the ones with Forum.com better. It feels a bit more 'seperated' from the actual game, like I could see the devs of the game being more interested in shutting you down if you're using GameName.net as opposed to GamenameForum.com since the Forum in the name is more descriptive of what the site is about and more clearly differentiates it from any official game site, if I'm understanding this correctly.

    In any case, you may run into TM issues should they choose to pursuit that, but I'm not a lawyer or anything.

    I think you are right.

    Example : Minecraft.net is official site of game and there is two forum sites :
    minecraftforum.com and minecraftforum.net

    I also had a poll on Twitter. Result: xforum got 43 votes, x.net got 23 votes.

    x.community ha didn't see that one coming....ok seriously I'm not a big fan of net so I'd go with the com. The "forum" in the name may be a little longer but at least descriptive of what you can expect to find there.
