Hey everyone ,
Everyone who visits maidsafe.org would be automatically redirected to safenetforum.org. And same thing for all links that contain “maidsafe.org” (e.g.
https://safenetforum.org/t/poll-to-move-or-not-to-move/3306 would be automatically redirected to
https://safenetforum.org/t/poll-to-move-or-not-to-move/3306. I’ve already verified with DiscourseHosting and I know exactly what to do.
The main reason for moving to safenetforum.org would be to make a clear distinction between MaidSafe the company and SAFE Network the technology.
MaidSafe = a team of engineers, programmers, designers, etc. (mainly in Troon, Scotland)
SAFE Network = a secure data storage and communication platform built by MaidSafe
In a few months/years, it’s very likely that the MaidSafe team will be only one of the many SAFE Pods contributing to the codebase of the SAFE Network. Basically, what I’m trying to say, is that MaidSafe is a small (but very important) part of the SAFE Network and that therefore, we should put the emphasis on the SAFE Network.
I know that many of you still call it the “MaidSafe network”, but we’ve already had many discussions about this in the past and it seems that the conclusion was to call it the SAFE Network. This is also how MaidSafe currently calls it in their papers and blog posts.
By changing the domain name of this forum to safenetforum.org, I think it can have a real impact on having people calling it the SAFE Network instead of “MaidSafe network” and understanding the difference between MaidSafe and SAFE Network. It would also highlight the fact that this forum is maintained by the SAFE Network community and not by MaidSafe the company.
Ideally, we should aim to make this change before Testnet 3 and Beta Launch, while we are still approaching release. In fact, I meant to propose this earlier, but I wanted to make landing page for safenetwork.io first.
Once that’s done, I would definitely welcome help from the community to improve and expand safenetwork.io (e.g. add a community blog, a directory of apps made by the community, a list of events organized by the community, tutorials, guides, a wiki, etc.). But for now, I would like to focus this discussion on moving maidsafe.org to safenetforum.org.
Obviously, I want to let the community decide.
Please vote Yes if you agree with moving this forum to safenetforum.org.
