That was an idea I pitched to the team, and as we thought it through it 
seemed a good fit for what LiveCode Ltd. is doing.  Over time we may 
find a unified site is better, but at the moment I like where things are 
potentially headed.

Many open source projects have a .org domain for their community 
efforts, including,,,,,, etc.

By splitting .org from .com, we have the opportunity to allow the 
company to hone their messaging for developers of proprietary apps at 
.com, while providing a portal at .org for not only the software itself, 
but also resources for community projects, contribution assistance, EDU 
tools and support, and more.

We're still early days with the .org site, and they haven't set set up 
the facilities to allow a community web team to augment that domain with 
relevant community info.

But we'll get there, hopefully soon.
