I don't know if it would be good to have an extra domain for documentation...

I prefer #4 http://www.ahkscript.com. It's short and clear. When I read it, I get what it's about. Let's keep one domain name for documentation, forums, etc.

Like everybody else, I really hate the idea of the fork, but if it has to be done I guess it has to be done. Does anybody know what polyethylene actually wants? Would throwing some money at him do the job, and if so how much would it take?

If this forum is going to be successful it's going to need to have the big dogs like Lexicos involved.

As for a name, I like AhkScript. You could gradually just change the whole name of the project to AhkScript, since it's about so much more than hotkeys these days. I use it for pretty much everything, when I have a half dozen languages I'm very good at to choose from. It just hits the sweet spot for most of the things I need to do.

Good enough for me. I'll abandon the old board completely. Bummer we have to do this. It's a strong community with one exception.

fincs wrote:I still think that it is necessary to somehow negotiate with Poly. Yes, I know of his attitude, but it is still worth a shot (look at what happened with the AHK_B vs AHK_L conflict). Especially since he hasn't actually said anything online about his plans or why is he neglecting the forums/AutoHotkey in general. Also, I wouldn't want AutoHotkey to get a name change (at most having "AHK" be made more prominent would be fine with me).
+1

i can't say i agree with this fork discussion

no disrespect at all to tank, because he's done a great job in all of this.
