Suggestion to protect buyers

I've seen many people buying junk on this forum over the past 3 months, and i've also seen people trying to resell the junk they bought, so I would suggest making the following 4 mandatory to protect buyers for Chinese and Japanese IDNs.

1. Using "double-quoted" Google results number: If google results are given, only double quoted ("domain") search results number can be shown. (Applies for both Japanese and Chinese names).

2. Type: Seller must indicate Traditional or Simplified Chinese (Applies for Chinese names only).

3. Trademark: Indicate if a domain is an obvious trademark, e.g. name of computer game, company, or tv show (Applies for both Japanese and Chinese names).

4. Overture (Applies for Japanese names only).


By maintaining the integrity of domain sales, we can encourage more people to invest in IDNs and this will help increase the value of our overall portfolio.

Anyone has any comments or criterion to add, please feel free.

The double quote would only apply to mixed terms but I agree that rules should be set out for the sales threads.
Overture should be a requirement I think, often terms are correct but unused, the OVT results would indicate that.

What junk was sold exactly ?

If Yahoo reinstates CN OVT, that would be really good. Or Baidu comes out with a Yandex kind of service.

These would also help boost the chinese idn market. People have been frantically registering japanese and russian idns because of the availability of such tools.

Re: Suggestion to protect buyers

It gives the dn-investor the certainty he needs to proceed in regging hundreds or thousands of dollars in domains. A solid ovt is a solid domain (not always vice versa though) .

Yes, i can forsee a sudden increase in the valuation of all good chinese domains when Yahoo CN OVT works again.

All Touchrings suggestions are good ones. Translation and source of translation (where possible) would also be helpful.
