If you are wanting a little 'easier to type' way of getting to the forums, you can now go to macdealchat.com
Thanks

What does the "p" in "mrp-admin" stand for? I assume the "mr" is macresourse (as in the domain name).

My guess (to answer my own question) is that the "p" stands for "phorum" (the software running the forum).

It is Page. MacResource Page.

I'd like to humbly disagree with the propriety of using that as a domain.

Greg has given me the courage to say that I find it sort of tacky. Just my 2 cents.

The 'p' does indeed stand for Page.
Thanks

Why the objection to the "macdealchat.com" name? Did I miss something?
Is it because it's too close to "dealmac"?

I tend to agree. A little salt in the wound is a bit much.

Is it tackier than deleting the account of the founder of another forum, who did not post about his new forum?


Maybe it is tacky... but Dan Granpre made his bed, so to speak.

I tried and got this....

"dealchat.com is no longer used.
Please change your bookmarks. If you are a Mac user, you are probably looking for the dealmac forum. If you are a PC user or just want to chat about deals in general, you can visit the dealnews forum."

Seems OK to me to use the name, since they say it's "no longer used"

cheers,
tys

Mine is bookmarked, so I don't type anything in anyway. But anything that is easier to remember is OK by me.

oops.
I knew we had this domain for a while, but i mistakenly put it up and pointed it to the forums. Didnt realize the history and potential for controversy this domain would cause.
Sorry 'bout that.
