I have been running Media Moruge for about two and a half years now. Since starting the site, I've been trying to acquire the domain name "mediamorgue.com." I thought the name was available when I was working on this site's creation, but a whois search shortly after I started showed that the name was snatched up almost a year before I launched the site.
The person that currently owns the name had initially agreed to sell it to me. Scraping the funds together from whatever pennies I made through advertising on the site has taken almost two years and now that I am FINALLY in a position to pay this individual for this little plot of land in the virtual world, I'm told that he's decided to keep the name for himself.
This means I'm now faced with the challenge of completely redesigning the website: New logo, new branding, new theme, new advertising, new marketing, new merchandise, new everything.
Media Morgue is a labor of love for me and after working to establish ourselves as a good source of information for "news, reviews and rumors on film, television and the media," It pains me to have to scrap it all and start from scratch again just because some two bit, cybersquatting asshat wants to use our name for himself. (He's even using a variation on our toe tag logo. How creative.)
However, I am not quitting. If this bozo doesn't want my money, I will pay one of you instead.
So here's the challenge:
We need a good top level domain name. Something that is memorable, catchy, implies a connection to the media/movie/television industry, preferably witty and most importantly available.
If it can meet all those criteria and I decide to use it, I'll pay you $100. I'll also write a big thank you to you on the site and be indebted to you for the rest of my life.
I understand that $100 is not a lot of money for the amount of work I am asking for, but its honestly all I have. Help me re-design this website from the ground up. In exchange I will pay you not nearly what the effort is worth.
