IDN.org is now live

Hi Guys,

I'd like to take this opportunity to announce that earlier this week I acquired the domain name IDN.org.

As an IDN investor, I have often felt that all of the information and resources about IDN domains was scattered in many different places across the web. To date, there has been no authority for information about IDN's.

Now there is -- IDN.org.

It's just starting out and I would invite all of you to join and begin adding resources to the wiki. Over the coming weeks and months I intend IDN.org to become the leading unbiased resource for information on IDN domains.

Joe Davison

Re: IDN.org is now live

Jeez, Joe!

Change the subject to read "idn.org website launched" or something.

I nearly had a heart failure. I though .org had opened up their IDN to all languages (again) and I'd been caught on the back foot!

Don't DO that!

Re: IDN.org is now live

IDN.org

What language is that in

Not too expensive I hope?

I can't give much input due to my lack of expertise but certainly bucketloads of encouragement.

Re: IDN.org is now live

Great idea, will be good to have an authority site for idns that can help to spread the word. Hopefully everybody will be able to get behind it.

Re: IDN.org is now live

Thanks for the feedback guys. I am really excited about the project and the prospects for amassing all of the great knowledge out there about IDN's into one place.

Dabsi, the site runs on the same software as Wikipedia but is not related to Wikipedia in any other way.

Anyone can jump in and edit any page, or create a new page on any topic. So, for example, I don't know anything about Arabic, and don't invest in that space, but I am sure there are a lot of issues around Arabic domains that those who do invest in them know a lot about. If that's you, you could simply navigate to www.idn.org/Arabic , click "Edit", and start typing away.

Anyone who wants to make a topic about anything just has to go to www.IDN.org/Anything and start creating it.

Eventually we will have to introduce moderators and registration, but for now I am testing the waters with keeping it completely open... let's see what the community can create!

I started earlier today by creating this page: www.idn.org/Chinese in response to a thread that was posted asking several of the questions that I answered on that page.

Joe

Actually, you are not keeping it completely open. I got a nasty PM from you right after I edited your site.

Guess it depends what the edit was - care to elaborate?

Re: IDN.org is now live

Blast changed the link to jp-domains.net to reflect his own affiliate link, and added nothing else to the site. I PM'ed him and told him not to do that again.

Re: IDN.org is now live

good idea and great name... i think this has the potential to be a very useful resource moving forward if people contribute to the site appropriately and leave opinions, etc elsewhere

Re: IDN.org is now live

I think your site is a step in the wrong direction. The less people know about the tricks of IDNing, the better.

How can a good resource about IDNs be a step in the wrong direction? You sound annoyed because you tried to add an affiliate link to a Wiki and got called out. Surely you must have known such a link isn't what Wiki resources are about?

In the same way that an article explaining the drop to every idiot in the world was a step in the wrong direction.

I actually thought Blast's edit was pretty funny :-) I would have reverted it as well, but I do think it was funny!

Re: IDN.org is now live

Looks really Good...
I tried putting up a wiki once, it is not the simplest script to admin.

There is no such thing as a free lunch. If you want to get free content for your site, without offering anything in return, that's fine, but I'll have no part in it.

IDNs are a competetive business, not a trivia and history buff's knowledge free for all as Wikipedia is. Even in the non-profit world, many professors and researchers are hostile to the wiki concept for exactly the same reason: they get zero profit out of knowledge they gathered and zero credit and recognition for work they otherwise would have published in academic journals. The outcome: very few serious scholars participate in Wikipedia.

IDN.org had no clear rules about edits, he explicitly said it was open. If it is open, I am free to add any kind of links as are relevant.

I have stated before that the only decent affiliate link for registering IDNs at JP-Domains is idn.jp-domains.net, and all others, like spec, and the various strange links you see in other people's signatures on this forum are simply low class immitations!

Therefore, I don't see why anyone who cares about IDNs would use any other link! I rushed at the opportunity to correct the error in his wiki, and he got upset. I was only trying to help.

Which, if I recall correctly, is exactly what domainguru once did.

What makes your link better than any other affiliate link?
