Hives are issued a link address by beBee and unless changed appear to retain the name of the hive at the end of the assigned link address, for example:
"Quotes" would become:
which also changed the capital 'Q' to a small 'q' because web addresses are not case specific.
'Shoe show' became:
with the hyphen being added. If the name of the hive had started out as shoe-show then the link by default would have stayed the same.
The default can be changed; so, 'Pin'
is a perfect example of that:
as I had added the 'to' at the end of the default.
Web addresses eliminate the use of most symbols such as an apostrophe.
A hive that I named Ela's, had the link issued without the mark:
which works out fine as Ela is a fictional woman and she is all about collecting buzzes and honey about a "sale."
This is very similar to a domain name that I have for sale: elas.sale
as in www.elas.sale or firstname.lastname@example.org ; both of which are not actually in use.
Confusing the issue of hive names and their links is that the hive banner photo and profile picture can also contain words that may or may not be related. The profile pic for the hive 'Pin' has only two visible letters, 'P' and 'n' although our brains force us to perceive a letter 'i' within. This image uses a negative of a black letter 'i.'
This is confused further by the banner:
As I designed this as a bulletin board
to thumbtack interesting honey onto...
Pin to Rest
As an obvious take off on Pinning something of Interest
1) Many people know about the image of a thumbtack in the logo of Pinterest. I showed you how I used a negative of the letter 'i' in 'Pin.' Beside of that particular negative in an image can you find another within this article and if so what is it a negative image of?
2) What color are ELA's eyes?
3) What lipstick did she buy on sale?
4) Can you imagine sitting on a bee hive?
What famous Bee "sat on b?"
