Thanks from a Newb

Hi,
Just joined after reading for a while. Just wanted to introduce myself and say thanks to the IDNers who have made this site and other IDN sites possible.
The IDN threads on "mainstream" domain forums are quite inactive, so it is nice to see a solid group of people with interest in IDNs. Lot of great info here and helpful members(based on replies).
Anyway, Hello, thanks, and Happy Domaining.

Re: Thanks from a Newb

Cheers Johnks. Welcome to IDNF!

I've been wondering where all the "newbies" are? I've been watching that members counter just go up and only a few have introduced themselves. Is it time to start a new "introduce yourself" thread?

Thanks for introducing yourself. Hope you've learned a little from the reads. Enjoy your stay.

See we don't bite...

I guess we could make it so that new recruits have to introduce themselves within n days or their account is blocked?

Welcome Johnks - I am sure everyone is happy to know you are enjoying the forum!

@drewbert
No point really is there - whoever adds to forum should be welcome (even if not known is ok)

Come to think of it - I still have no idea who you are Drewbert - lol

Welcome!
Still lots of opportunity. In many ways it is still like the early days of Latin domains for us here.

Yep, good Q, and absolutely the right person to ask.

Giant is a Giant in Chinese idn; he is potentially very influential in Chinese domain space; he currently lives in Shanghai.

I would say I respect .cn -- 敬而远之。

I did reg some dot cn domains back in 2004, but after I found out more about dot cn I dropped most of them.

Unlike dot com, a completely commercial product, dot cn is geared for national security and therefore subject to heavy scrutiny from the police. Dot cn is great for business that want to protect their commercial data from the Americans because China own the Root. But if you have nothing to hide, .com/.net will work just fine. Actually, China treat .com/.net as something of their own; Chinese business use .com/.net to make tons of dollars every year for only $8 domain fee. VeriSign has done an excellent job for China.
