Wouldn't cotech.coop be better than coops.tech?
I guess it doesn't make a huge amount of different but personally I think cotech.coop would be a lot better url for CoTech than our existing coops.tech domain (more pricey though)
What do you think? Does it matter?
Josef Davies-Coates started a poll Wed 27 Jun 2018
Which url do you think is better for CoTech? Closed Wed 4 Jul 2018
I mostly asked this just as a temperature check (and because I personally think cotech.coop should obviously be our domain - to the extent I sometimes accidentally type it in the url bar!) but whilst most people who participated in the poll do prefer cotech.coop over coops.tech (13 to 10) the responses made clear that most people aren't really too bothered either way and lean toward a "if it aint broke, don't fix it" approach. Perhaps one to come back to in the future...
Is cotech.coop better/ more appropriate?
|10 - coops.tech (our current url)|
|13 - cotech.coop|

whilst i love the coop tld, cotech is a bit of a mouthful
I'm forced to choose an option to comment, which seems problematic. There's a wider issue here. AFAIK, cotech is not a co-op but rather a collection/network of co-ops. Perhaps that should change?

I don't think we should be focusing our efforts on minor points like this. Anyone can have a .coop domain so it's not fundamental to me. There's also a cost issue, so unless anyone is willing to own this and pay for it...if it ain't broke :)

CoTech isn't technically a coop so I think this is confusing from a brand perspective, and there is brand projects underway, so whilst it is performing well already I don't see the reason to change in the short term. :thinking:

Agree with Kayleigh and Annie. tech.coop would make more sense if it was to change to a .coop domain, but that's gone and is being used already, and feel cotech.coop is too close to that.
