Currently it re-directs to my main site, but coming soon will be a re-structure of the sites.

********* will bring together the resources for explorers, Greenlaners will be dedicated to the vehicle business only (currently served by the sub-domain vehicles.greenlaners.com).


As some of you will know, the growth of the road network has been to the detriment of the green-lanes. The original site/group/brand was aimed at these routes because they required greater maintenance and were as numerous as routes with roads. Greenlaners began as a kinda "way of life" brand, hence everything being lumped together.

With the growth of the roads and the growth of our interests, the relevance of the name diminished. The in-world group was re-branded to "Protected Route Interest Group" to clarify the broad scope of our interests and goals (after a consultation period with members). This new domain will hopefully separate any further confusion between my vehicle business and the aims of the group.

It was suggested to me elsewhere that I might not be allowed to us the new domain I made, so I contacted Linden Labs and received a reply today:

 



Dear Mr. *****,

We are writing in response to the email that you sent to our business email with questions about registering the ******* domain.


We have allowed Residents to use the abbreviation SL in certain ways identified in our posted license at http://secondlife.com/corporate/brand/trademark/sl_insl.php. Under this license it’s OK for you to use “SL” in combination with two generic nouns.


Your use of “SL” with a verb is not allowed. So, you will need to change your domain name. If you would like to forward the ****** domain to your new domain for a period of time that would be acceptable.


Please let us know as soon as possible what your new domain name will be and when these changes will be completed and how long you expect to forward the old domain to the new domain.

We appreciate your cooperation and look forward to hearing from you. If you have any additional questions, please let us know.

Sincerely,


The Trademark Team at Linden Lab

After a quick brainstorming and consultation with my group members, I have grabbed a new domain.  One which suites the purpose, is brief and doesn't have SL in it so :P to LL lol:

 

protected-routes.com

 

As before, currently it redirects to the old page, but in the coming weeks I shall be overhauling things.  It will remain simple with no silly gimmicks or annoying php that bogs down.  HTML and notepad are all I need!

Just a quick update.  All free map downloads are now online under the new domain.  Old map subdomains @maps.greenlaners.com will continue to work, so if you already have these bookmarked you will not need to make any changes.  If you need the maps in-world as they are, do not waste your money uploading them, they are already available at my Explorers Information Centres, info on my main site.  Details below ;)
