So he can use that domain to link to TWP so he can get more traffic. There is a lot of old mAL links left on the internet.
Which is why I vote for using mAL

exactly my thoughts too. the last thing I want here is for mAL's popularity - which is a lot bigger than mAI, to be made into a redirection page.

I need not state other, more obvious reasons as to why I personally would dislike it to be a TWP redirect.

I'm going to be switching web hosts some time this weekend (hopefully), and I'd like to be able to only have to set up one domain when I do so...if we stay mAI there's no question of whether we keep mAL (was hard to get that!), but myApertureInnovations has not really got that well known.

The poll is a lot closer now than it was, does anyone else want to swing their vote?

I thought the poll was closed. :/

I honestly really don't care. What I do care about is the logo crap I spent hours on. It is really nice to have a site use your logo when your trying to get into a job of Art.

Well you could still do a mAL's logo and trademark stuff make over.

I completely understand, I put a lot of work into mAI paraphernalia also. We'll see when the poll closes.

If you weren't around in chat earlier, I got a quick interface for browsing the mAL files until nick gets me the database info. Here: http://www.myapertureinnovations.com/filedb/olddb.php

Slapping "LABS" in replacement of innovations will not work. The entire logo and site would need to be thought over. Also it does not help that I burned CDs and uploaded it to my portfolio and now it is at risk of being obsolete.

That's sweet! Do you plan on putting them in mAI's database when everything's sort out?
