SkeletonSliders.com or NewSliders.com?

I registered SkeletonSliders.com, which now forwards to NewSliders.com.

Do you think I should just leave it at that, or does anyone have thoughts on whether I should re-brand this site under the SkeletonSliders.com name?

Pros: SkeletonSliders.com would be more generic. My site is geared toward beginners, but I want it to broadly welcome "non-new" sliders as well. And it may be easier to find in search engines by using the word 'skeleton' in the domain.

Cons: I’ve already "invested" in the NewSliders.com brand (with many incoming links and media mentions) and I’d have to update some links in my forum and on my site.

Hey George, its totally up to you dude.
Regardless of what name you use you still do a great service to new people in the sport and that's all that really matters.
You have a page that new sliders can come and learn about the sport and they can even get more advanced sliders to talk with them and help them out, i noticed Chase posted the other day helping someone out and that means a lot to new sliders.
It would be totally awesome if people like Noelle and Zach and the others posted here but they don't but at least new sliders can get help from people who have been in the sport for a few years.
I will always be thankful for you and your page and the help i got from here when i first got involved a couple of years ago.

Thanks for the kind words, Harold! :)

While it’d be great to get more folks to post, I’m pleasantly surprised by the posting volume considering the skeleton community is so tiny. You, Chase, Mark, Holly, Teej and a bunch of others have posted a lot of helpful stuff here. It’s great that we’re all giving back to the skeleton community.

Hah!

Thanks, although I'm not sure there's much "help" my newbie hasn't-run-from-the-top self has been. Heh.

Looks like the only full school @ PC this year is in December. Not a great time for me but I'm trying to adjust my schedule.
