Just a thought - alternative.

There has been a lot of talk of where to go and what to do if IDNForums goes belly up.

Other forums have been tried and failed because of - many diffferent problems.

Here is a drastic idea.

NP's has a well established community base that is full of youngsters eager to learn and progress in domaining- despite what you may read elsewhere.

It is a kindergarten for future domainers/IDN'ers and the skills available to be passed by many of you here to those eager to learn would be invaluable.


They have a well established hierarchy well controlled by RJ who is also a partial IDN advocate.

Should there be a significant increase in activity in the IDN section I am sure RJ would act accordingly to employ/appoint qualified mods to do the necessary.

I see it as a groundfloor opportunity to promote IDN's to a wider field trhat can only be of benefit in the long run - 45,000 + members- a golden opportunity.

You would not have to look at the other sections if you are offended by .mobi and the like.

Alternatively continue the us and them attitude and pretend that IDN's are different to domain names.

Just a thought!

power vacuum

defn: A power vacuum is an expression for a political situation that can occur when a government has no identifiable central authority. The metaphor implies that, like a physical vacuum, other forces will tend to "rush in" to fill the vacuum as soon as it is created, perhaps in the form of an armed militia, military coup, warlord or dictator.

Power vacuum or government in self-exile?

Our situation now is the country is broke, and the government has fled!

Re: Just a thought - alternative.

The only problem with NamePros is that you spend most of your time arguing with cynics who think IDN has a more tragic future than .mobi. When IDN takes off, of course, it will be a different story.

Here's another good one:

Strangely enough, that one didn't draw any response from Sahar.
