Title: KindleBoards.com... is now KBoards.com!
Post by: KBoards Admin on February 26, 2013, 10:49:01 am
Update:

The migration is complete. No electrons were lost in the migration. Hooray!


Update:

On March 7th, we'll be moving the KindleBoards.com site to a new domain name: KBoards.com.

The move should be fairly transparent to all of you, except that you'll have to update any browser bookmarks that you might have for us.

We don't expect any significant changes in the look and feel of the site. All of your threads, posts, signatures, avatars, PMs, etc, will continue to exist.  

One expected impact will be that the site search form in our headers won't work well for a few days; it will take a few days for Google's spiders to crawl through the new site and to do the necessary search index updates.

The KindleBoards.com site will be unavailable at 7pm Pacific on March 7th while we initiate the migration. At about 9:30pm Pacific, the new site will become available.

After the conversion, for about two weeks, we'll have the KindleBoards.com address redirect you automatically to KBoards.com. Hopefully this will give you time to update your browser bookmarks.

For the two weeks after that, you'll see a reminder message for a few seconds, and then be redirected to the new site.

After that, when you enter KindleBoards.com in your browser, you'll see a message asking you to update your bookmarks, and offering a link that you can click to get you to the new site.

It'll be a very intuitive name change. An easy transition. And easy to remember. :)

FKAKB.com?
 
(formerly known as...)

The site where I mod, tvclubhouse.com, started out as Big Brother Fan Club dot com until CBS threatened the orignial owner with lawsuits.  Actually encourged our inevitable expansion beyond Big Brother.

Sadder story is Komen For the Cure threatening a couple of (probably more, I just know of two) small non profits set up by parents of kids with cancer.. one was named Kites for a Cure and the other had for a cure or for the cure in the title, but NO ONE would have mistakenly given money to them thinking they were Komen.  They had already spent money on stationery and such.  Not sure what ever happened, but it sure turned off some people to Komen, and their high priced legal team, before all the hoopla with Planned Parenthood.

Sad when power is used just because it exists.

I await the new name with great anticipation.

Title: Re: KindleBoards.com... moving to new domain!
Post by: Ann in Arlington on February 26, 2013, 03:37:44 pm
No worry. . . crumbs will be left. :D

Basically, Amazon has often asked sites to stop using the name 'kindle' which is, after all, their trademark. :-\  They've left us alone for 5 years but at some point it's entirely possible they'll send the notice.  It's actually a little surprising we've been left alone as long as we have as we are certainly the premier Kindle fan site on the Net! Sites and blogs with much smaller footprints, albeit different purposes, have been asked to change their names.

Anyway, Harvey, as usual, is prepared.  ;D Given that the rumors are if the notice comes they only give 7 days, Harvey doesn't want to be caught on vacation in Hawaii or something! :o

It'll be fine. . .take deep breaths. . .have some chocolate. . . . :)

 ;D  I like both of those...but due to contractual requirements, I have to vote for hibbing.com ;D

My understanding is that under US trademark law, a company has to defend the use of its trademark term or risk losing the trademark.  So it does't really bother me that a company does so.  Amazon has invested a lot of money in its brand and has the right to defend it.  KindleBoards, under whatever name, will still be the best Kindle-lovers' forum on the 'Net.  We've got something the others don't have--Harvey and a great membership!

Yes, there will. There will be a period where people who go to KindleBoards.com will be automatically redirected to (oh man, I almost let the cat out of the bag!)... the new site.

Then, there will be a second period where people who go to KindleBoards will receive a message asking them to update their bookmarks to (gah! I want to say it!)... the new site.

I should add, just in case it's not obvious - even though we're moving to a new web address, the look and feel and features of the site should remain exactly the same as today. So no learning curve required, other than remembering the new address.

Harvey explained in his first post in the thread why we're changing the name; my comment was just an explanation of why big companies pursue trademark issues, in response to another post here.

We're excited about this move and are doing it on our own initiative, to ensure our compliance with Amazon's terms of service regarding use of the word 'kindle' in domain names.

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?
Title: Re: KindleBoards.com... moving to new domain!
Post by: Ann in Arlington on February 27, 2013, 04:07:38 pm
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. :)

Our traffic would probably increase with some of those domain names!

But, I think we'll stick with our choice of kboards.com.   :)

I always wondered how you got away with that - thought it may have been a special deal struck?!

How about:

kind-lemon-boards.com

Gee, am I going to have to take Kindle out of my user name? Gosh, Amazon, that is the name my parents gave me. Gertie Keddle Kindle. That name goes back generations. Can I sue Amazon for using my family name without permission? Can I make a lot of money out of this? Can you imagine if they'd named their ereader Smith or Jones? It would have to be a class-action suit where the lawyers would get $50 Million and all the Smiths and Jones would get 2.5 cents each.

Wow here we are on the ( soon to be old) board occasionally discussing impending changes to the industry so that we - as both readers and writers- can easily keep up and now we have to change the very home we live in.

But thanks to Harvey and his vigilance and long term thinking the transition will be a smooth one- good luck behind the scenes as you prep!

Hey Harvey- any chance we could clone you into a few hundred thousand units and put you in charge of the many companies that need  a better and more efficient 'boss'?
Imagine what a better world we would have.....

Basically, Amazon has often asked sites to stop using the name 'kindle' which is, after all, their trademark.

Believe it or not, Apple tried to stop me from using the word "Apple" in my name when I applied for an app developer account.

How about   readingKBinsteadofwriting.com

Now I have no bragging rights. <pout>. Oh, Oh, I have most adorable, naughtiest kitty on the planet! So there. Something to brag about. OH!

Well, those are good bragging rights! :) 

We've had our sights set on the KBoards.com domain name for some time, and put in a proxy bid for it about two years ago. In the meantime the owner of the domain let it expire so we were able to acquire it at that time. Good fortune!

FYI, KindleBoards.com will have the following downtime during the migration:

March 2nd - 8pm Pacific time, for one hour - for testing purposes
March 7th - 7pm Pacific time, for three hours - for final migration steps

About 10pm on March 7th, if you go to KindleBoards.com, you'll be redirected to KBoards.com. At that time you'll want to update your browser bookmarks.

I'll post here with any changes to the schedule, but those are my best estimates right now.

I'm still researching the Tapatalk implications but I believe it will require adding the KBoards.com forum to your existing Tapatalk application. No need to download a new app; it should be pretty straightforward. Instructions to follow.

Just go to the bookmark properties, paste the url into your browser, and change kindleboards to kboards. Poof, there it is. Eezy-Beezy. Bet everyone else already knew that. I think I'll go to the conspiracy thread and whine some more.

Yes, we ran a script last night that updated everybody's signatures to direct links to kboards instead of kindleboards. So that updated the reading page links, as well as author links to their book profiles.

For those people who like numbers, here's what the scripts did:

990 rows were updated in our "books" database (which authors use for their book profiles, and to have their books displayed in our KB books page (https://kboards.com/books)

4,655 signatures were updated to link to kboards instead of kindleboards. At the same time, we replaced the longer affiliate tags with the short versions of ?tag=kbpst-20 (for Amazon US) and kb1-21 (for Amazon UK). That gives a little more breathing room in the signature areas, which have a character limit.

41,630 posts (out of 2 million) were updated that had internal links to other KB posts and threads.

All of the above took less than 10 minutes. Gotta love MySQL!

JetJammer--the bookmark itself is set by your browser, right? It should still be there even if it's not working right now. You can edit that.  You just need to replace the part that says "www.kindleboards.com with www.kboards.com

If you don't know how, let me know what browser you are using.

Yep, I would have thought so, but unfortunately I only had it saved as part of the home page, and not in my favorites.  The home page keeps automatically forwarding to KBoards.  If there's an editable link to the home page settings, I haven't found it.  I'm running IE 9.

I'll play with it, maybe I'll figure it out.  If not, I'll try again to find the original forum post.

Thanks!

Ooh, and just like that I found it!  Figures.  Looked for 30 minutes before I asked, then just found it in 2 minutes...

Harvey, I have a browser bookmark that goes directly to Amazon, which I use when I don't go there from a KBoards link. It has the KB affiliate tag attached so you'll receive affiliate money whenever I shop there. I need to change that Amazon bookmark link to read:

Code: [Select]
http://www.amazon.com/?tag=kbpst-20

and for those who use the UK store:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/?tag=kb1-21

Is that correct?

Thanks, Xopher. I'm actually surprised that it worked that way, and I wonder if Tapatalk is picking up the redirect from KindleBoards.

That redirect won't always be there, so I think you may have to setup the new forum in Tapatalk on your device, by searching for "kboards", clicking that, and signing in. At least, that's what I had to do and I think I would recommend that approach.

Harvey, I have a browser bookmark that goes directly to Amazon, which I use when I don't go there from a KBoards link. It has the KB affiliate tag attached so you'll receive affiliate money whenever I shop there. I need to change that Amazon bookmark link to read:

Code: [Select]
http://www.amazon.com/?tag=kbpst-20

and for those who use the UK store:
http://www.amazon.com/?tag=kb1-21

Is that correct?

You can, but there's no need to - - all of the previous affiliate codes are still in effect. Thank you so much for thinking of that though!!

Nicely done.
As usual I did not notice this until it was happening.
But then we all know I don't often notice these things.

Thank you, Geoff! Our goal was to make it seamless, and I think we almost accomplished that.

DreamWeaver, I think you need to change that second one to have   .co.uk    in it instead of    .com.

Oh yes, I see that I mistyped that. Thanks! I just fixed it in my original post.

I am new to this forum and I so far it works just fine. I like your new name better, simple and easy to remember! Good choice!
Also I do enjoy the board as I "learn" a lot of new things about something I should already have all the knowledge about  .... ;)
