It might be nice to have a charlie dont skate domain again.
Losing charliedontskate.com is not a big deal. The domain had been torched by Google. The algorithm changed around 2010-13 a few times against forums. The main issue was the forum was set up to allow sign ups and a do follow link in the person profile. So spammers were bulk registering and creating links. At some stage in 2010-13 those links became toxic when google torched the domain, basically purged it from the index and then punishing anyone who linked from the domain. It was then used by black hat seo people to take down people’s domains. If you auto generated a bunch of links from Charlie, you could affect someone’s ranking in a negative way. When Google torches a domain, takes a few years to recover, it may never recover. So starting with a new domain, no Google history, could be a good thing. There is no rush, we can do it anytime.
If skaters start using the forum again, I think it would be a good move.
