    that sounds like a good domain name?

    just registered a rather short domain name.

    www.badcg.com


    since english is not my first language, just what to ask you guys what you think about it. does it sound cool, or silly or whatever.


    Many thanks.

    Sounds like a site which is dedicated to examples of bad (as in, poorly made) computer graphics.

    I agree with Arenhaus, you may wish to discard the word "bad" from any future domain names. If English is not your first language you may wish to use a dictionary to research the words you are considering for use in a domain name. All the best.

    Well, 'bad' could be taken as wicked as in 'good' or really tough. It sort of goes in and out of fashion with youngsters, but I think people will know if you post bad-ass art there, which view to take.

    In order to play the contrarian card you'd need to have insanely classy presentation or an ironic sense of visual humor. If you are "just good" the whole thing would backfire. Seeing as how english isn't your first language, you'd have a tough time explaining yourself. Judging by your sketchbook thread I'll say you're good, but the domain wouldn't fit your style. Bad doesn't describe your work one way or another. Please don't take offense but the closest I can come is "mainstream", "plain" or "generic" Which has a negative connotation in theory, but a strong demand in reality. Then you can surprise them with creative concepts when they look deeper.

    I think your work is good enough that you'll probably get away with such a negative domain name. Still it's not good market branding because, it makes you have to prove the negative message it conveys to be wrong.
