    Exclamation TFF will temporarily be offline soon...

    Hey guys,

    Well, it saddens me to announce the following but I suppose it was inevitable at some point.

    I have recently received a Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) regarding having the trademarked name 'final fantasy' within our domain name 'thefirstfantasy.com'.

    Not sure why it took years to discover this and Square Enix has every right to want to have it not associated with unofficial websites. They were friendly in the matter, but none-the-less, it sucks. I am posted this now before the site goes down after the domain is transferred. I plan on moving the site to a different domain name and restoring everything there... any ideas on names? I own ffaddicts.com, but that is it...

    Sorry for the bad news. This hit me hard but we can continue to carry on the spirit of TFF on another domain. I will keep everyone posted on our FB page linked below. Please let others know that may visit the site after the transfer and NOT see this message.

    Thanks guys,
    Fuzz

    Well that's a real kick in the nuts. I'm not surprised though, since it is a copyrighted franchise.

    FFAddicts isn't a terrible name. Apparently theFF.com is for sale

    I also wouldn't mind theFF.com

    I took it upon myself to post the news to the Facebook page to let people know. How long are you expecting to take the domain name down in order to do the transfer?

    Thanks guys. Yeah, it is a good swift kick in the nuts, haha. I was pissed for a while but have come to terms. I mean, they have every right to own it and I'm suprised it took this long. I guess I just got so used to the name I didn't think anything of it.

    Yeah, first domain I looked up was theff.com and it is indeed taken... although it appears to just be parked. I'll look into contacting whomever owns it and see if they will sell it for a reasonable price. Keep thinking of other names... I'll do the same. Any other way to spin TheFinalFantasy without having the words 'Final Fantasy' in the domain name, haha.

    Thanks for posting Yoko. Once the transfer is initiated, which can be any day now... I just need to move all of our files and database to a new domain... then we will be back online, so it won't take long. Probably 3-5 days of down time I'm thinking.

    If all else fails, I also wouldn't mind reviving Square Forums. That was the forum I came from previously before finding this forum. Square Forums has since fallen off the grid, and all of our memories have been lost to the aether. That may just be a pipe dream though.

    Other suggestions are as follows:
    FFForums
    TFFForums (TFF.com) that doesn't seem to be taken.

    I like the idea of keeping it simple and shortening the name instead of completely rebranding.

    Darn, maybe I should check in here more often...

    I was thinking TFF.com as I was reading thru this. Although it apparently redirects to searchfusion dot info right now. Which won't load. lol... Some bs.

    TheFinalF.com. People will think it's a bad grade. Or maybe...

    TheFFantasy.com. TFFantasy.com. TeeEffEff.com. TheFinalFrunkasy.com. TheFanalFintasy.com. TheFinalFallacy.com. TheFinalFolklore.com. TheFungalFructose.com TotallyFrigginFantasy.com.

    Durp a durp. Sorry Fuzz.

    Ayy, back in business.
    For Our Lord Sheogorath, without Whom all Thought would be linear and all Feeling would be fleeting. Blessed are the Madmen, for they hold the keys to secret knowledge. Blessed are the Phobic, always wary of that which would do them harm. Blessed are the Obsessed, for their courses are clear. Blessed are the Addicts, may they quench the thirst that never ebbs. Blessed are the Murderous, for they have found beauty in the grotesque. Blessed are the Firelovers, for their hearts are always warm. Blessed are the Artists, for in their hands the impossible is made real. Blessed are the Musicians, for in their ears they hear the music of the soul. Blessed are the Sleepless, as they bask in wakeful dreaming. Blessed are the Paranoid, ever-watchful for our enemies. Blessed are the Visionaries, for their eyes see what might be. Blessed are the Painlovers, for in their suffering, we grow stronger. Blessed is the Madgod, who tricks us when we are foolish, punishes us when we are wrong, tortures us when we are unmindful, and loves us in our imperfection.
