Two things - if we have a forum we need to have one on the official
forums - having one on its own domain will guarantee that it won't be

You shouldn't register your own Ubuntu domain - domains with ubuntu in
should be centrally managed as we've already has problems with domain
ownership which have needed the community council to get involved in.

http://www.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/TrademarkPolicy gives the official

"Where possible, we ask that Ubuntu related domain ownership be held by
Canonical Limited or a Canonical-authorised organisation. Please ask for
a trademark license before registering a domain which incorporates the
Ubuntu name. In most cases, we will sponsor registration fees for
approved domains, and leave technical administrative control in the
hands of the website operator. "

Calling it a planet also confuses matters as people think of planets as
blog collectors.
