    I just bought vostroya.com

    I don't really know why. I like Vostroyans a lot. Maybe I'll make a super awesome database of every pretty Vostroyan pic that's ever been on the internet.

    What should I do with it? :C

    Firstly send a kind message to GW stating you are an admirer of their work and blah blah blah saying you bought vostroya.com and your plans with it... asking permission to post pictures with a disclaimer...

    Then start building the page on paper... ;Y

    Yeah, I agree with Tsele, you are best starting a dialogue with GW now in case they later decide they don't like the fact you registered one of their trademarks as a domain! :p

    Here is a link to can and can't do's regarding their intelectual property policy:

    Sell it to GW. For lots of money. And a lifetime discount.

    Sell it to GW for a bunch of Vostroyan figs. Those things aren't cheap.

    Wow. GW are even more anal retentive about their stuff than I thought. What if the Salmon Thief didn't know anything about GW or 40K or Voystrians and he just happened to think of that name one day and make a webpage with it? Is that violating GW's intelectual property?

    Vostroya is a planet, or a system of planets, from where Vostroyans are from...

    In most places, it wouldn't be. If you made a site like Honda.com back in the day, and had a reason for doing so, like your last name was Honda, you would probably be okay. At least that's my limited understanding.
