Rename the Board

Postby catmoon » Mon Oct 19, 2009 7:12 am

In light of the recent flood of refugees from E-Sangha, I propose that this board's name be changed to Dharamsala Wheel.

Aren't you glad you don't have to feed us all?

In that case, shouldn't we be renamed as 'Garam Masala Wheel'?

Dhamma Wheel... well since a lot of people are now using this as a backup to esangha, how about
Spare Wheel?
Then,
saturated with joy,
you will put an end to suffering and stress.

"Wheel" websites and domains currently owned by our community here:

http://www.dhammawheel.com/ This forum

http://www.dharmawheel.net/ Mahayana-Vajrayana forum

http://www.dharmawheel.info/ currently just redirects to Dharma Wheel

and now as of yesterday, I also purchased:

http://www.dharmawheel.org/ currently just redirects to Dharma Wheel

So, I guess that makes it officially four wheels to our chariot. :tongue:


Some people collect stamps, some collect dolls, some collect trinkets, me? I collect Buddhist domain names. :tongue:

That now makes 21 Buddhist domain names. For the complete list scroll down to the bottom of my bio here:

It also may be an Idea to put some notice up with a link to DharmaWheel for those who are interested with that side until e-sangha have sorted out their server problems!

don't get me wrong all the new members are nice to see, but if they are inclined to Mahayana or Vajrayana they could end up detracting from the inclination of this forum.
