FQDN change to hints.macworld.com

Jason,
I enjoy MacWorld - it is one of my 'Daily' websites (a tab set that loads what I want as my core for the day) - it loads right beside MacOSXHints. I think had you guys actually thought this out that naming it MacOSXHints.Macworld.com would have made more sense. Now before you argue that the Mac part is redundant, or that the hints are for far more than just Mac OSX keep in mind the name of the parent publication.

There certainly was a large amount of value/goodwill in the name MacOSXHints - I just can't see why you would toss that out the window. I know when I saw a reference in an article or a posting that mentioned MacOSXHints as the source, etc. I added a lot of credibility to it. I just don't feel that way when I read that it comes from MacWorld. MacOSXHints built a reputation based on collecting a knowledge base from those in the trenches - not those in the grand stands.

I would very strongly recommend that you keep the name MacOSXHints and keep the redirect working. I also think you should do whatever it takes to pump the quality up as it has sagged in the last few months (nothing against Craig A.). I know I would like to see more than one hint a day and that I would like to see a larger variety than what we have been seeing. Please don't let this slip away into oblivion and obscurity.

Onward thru the FOG!
