    Yes, we will still be able to call it "KB" and that will continue to make sense with the new domain name.

    Pretty soon... I'm doing some planning and testing now. (The whole process as I have it mapped out takes over 100 steps, but I think we can accomplish it with a very short down-time for KB.)

    Depending on how those tests go, I'll be announcing a date within the next week. And I'll probably announce the new domain name at that time as well.

    I thought you couldn't trademark common English words. I always wondered why Amazon chose one for such an important product. I also think it's silly of them to force websites and Facebook pages to stop using the word, they do want communities of fans to meet and reinforce each other's buying of ebooks, don't they?

    As I understand it, the trademark encompasses the word in connection to the device.

    A site called "KindleBoards" that was all about cute pictures and videos of groups of baby cats would not have a problem, most likely.

    But a site dedicated to fandom of the device called "kindle". . . .well, that's something different.

    And, as Betsy explained earlier -- a company has to enforce it's trademark or else risk losing its rights to use it.

    And, as I observed, it's a bit surprising they've not been in touch yet!  I think they do like us ::) but it is probably best not to wear out our welcome, as it were. :)

    I own about 35 domain names; buying and selling them is sort of a hobby. I'd be happy to donate viewertainment.com to this board.

    I dunno ... VT just doesn't seem to have the same ring to it as KB. WP might be a little closer, but still no cigar.

    I think this is the best one. Not quite as funny as some of the others, but certainly more practical.  :)

    We've set the date... We will begin the conversion to the new site name on the evening of Thursday March 7th, Pacific time.

    There should be limited downtime. Hopefully none. If all goes well, the KindleBoards.com site will begin redirecting to the new site, at some time in the wee hours that night.

    And the site name, effective March 8th, is...

    KBoards.com

    Don't update your bookmarks until March 8th!
