imo domain hacks only work when the first part isn't a word in itself, so it forces people to read the entire thing as a word.
for example: prote.st, because prote isn't a word, it makes you read it with the st extension to form "protest."

Lewd.ly sounds a hell of a lot better than Lewd.sx. And yeah, the first thing I saw was the domain and it made me think of a popular forum that had .sx
I think the change would be really nice.

I like it the way it is, but it won't be the end of the world if we changed it either.

it's a TLD, as I replied to Yuu:
that'd be akin to saying, "I won't use the .org domain; because NAMBLA uses it". :^)

Whatever I do to Lewd has nothing to do with SL, how anyone could think I'm copying a site that started as a technology forum and turned into basically no niche, I have no idea.

Okay that's a good point. Either way I prefer .sx over .ly, I'm not sure how to justify that. It's just my preference for now, .sx looks better right now.

.sx is better than .ly

PS: please don't use .sex

I'd only make .sex redirect to lewd.sx if I ever bought the .sex domain. c:

I just assumed it meant "lewd.sex"(that was already taken or something) but lewd.ly is fine too

I personally find lewd.sx to be more phonetically pleasing. Lewd.ly is too lewd tbh.

It's one of the reasons why .sx was chosen, a play-on words - at least, iirc.

Yep, the name spawned with @Equinox was set on making a forum named dire.sx, and seeing that sx was pretty much readable as "sex", I thought it was pretty amusing to change the name to lewd.sx in the site templates.

I ended up buying the lewd.sx domain for equinox and the name stuck :3
