Subdivide the sales section by language and price?

I wonder if it is good idea to begin thinking in subdividing the sales subforum by language and price? Or maybe even to go a step forward and to run a single page with the domains on sale -domainershub.com style but adding the options for price, language and a pop-up window or comment area for the buyer to read if interested on the OVT, search results, explanation, etc-.

The way i see it, some people is only interested on 2 or 3 languages and they have a budget, so why instead of mixing quality domains with bad ones, persian domains with japanese, greek with chinese, etc; better to let the potential buyers to go for what they specifically want within their budget?

For the sellers is also good, as they know their unsold domains are always receiving attention instead of bumbing their sales threads one in a while to keep it on "the front page". Anyway just a recommendation mostly to separate $60 domains from people asking over $2K, $5K or more per a domain of usually better quality; greek from japanese, chinese from bulgarian, arab from czech, etc.

Share your opinion but cmon lets keep harmony in here, so much insults or impolite comments piss me off when people just want to help.

Re: Subdivide the sales section by language and price?

A language split is great, but re. price I believe there are a lot of folks who would buy at anything from $xx to $x,xxx or more FOR THE RIGHT NAME.

The downside of the split is some threads may only get a handful of views or less, but that reflects the reality of the market i.e. they're currently getting artificially high views now simply because people have to look into the thread to find out in what language the domain is being offered.

Re: Subdivide the sales section by language and price?

yeah i think it is good to slipt the sales subforum by languages. I have almost 300 posts, just 1 post was for a sale, but i still find most members are here to sell domains instead of learning more about domaining or contributing more to the idn community, so thats why i said to the adm. try to make sales easier for the sellers who are here just making posts to sell.

i see some guys with many posts, but 99% are only about sale threads. so why not to give them what they want? besides for a buyer is easier to go to the area where there are only sales threads on the language (s) he invests the most.

Re: Subdivide the sales section by language and price?

Yes, I am for that. The forum needs to evolve and respond to needs. I think the need for a language split in the sales threads is now apparent.

Re: Subdivide the sales section by language and price?

Good idea Poll added just in case
THE POLL IS PUBLIC

Those against it please supply reasons why.

I do think though the forum is getting big enough to divide the sales myself.

Re: Subdivide the sales section by language and price?

A split will be a good idea, but there should be a "latest sale threads" page that gathers the latest postings from all the sales subforums. As a frequent buyer, i find it a chore going thru' DNF's sales subforums - made worst by DNF's slow loading.

Since the Sales section is the most visited section, Olney might want to consider the implication to server load when people hop from one subforum to another just to find something interesting.

Re: Subdivide the sales section by language and price?

the optimum would be as i said at the begining to run a page with the domains on sale -domainershub.com style. It is not difficult and very useful. Reasons, 1. I hate people doing sales thread bumps to be on the first page of the sales section -which means more exposure to buyers- or 2. Many times u see some lunatics asking $$$$$$ for a domain, which it is maybe interesting to get for $$$ but not for $$$$$$$$$$$. It is really a waste of time to have to check the threads of wanna-be instant millionaire, because by force u have to see the content to see the price. At least then ask as a rule to add the price on thread title, so u got domain/translation/price.

Anyway for now, at least, to slip by language is better.

Re: Subdivide the sales section by language and price?

Why not just use the "New Posts" view when you want to look at everything?

Re: Subdivide the sales section by language and price?

i meant i think as a rule the title of a sale thread should be on the new japanese idn domains section on the sales area like this:

" ギフト.com/gift/$20K " -then u know the translation and requested price. U got the money, u click to see ovt, search results, etc.

instead of "ギフト.com Gift " where sometimes the requested price of the seller is insane. if it is a lunatic seller, he still should do like this "ギフト.com/gift/$500K" and then done, people dont have to waste time checking it unless u have $500K to spend today most cases here high prices doesnt much quality of the domain, just another wanna-be quickly millionaire, specially lately on chinese domains.

I don't care about a split based on price. Just language would be perfect.

Re: Subdivide the sales section by language and price?

I would like a split only if there's a view that summarized all.
Two reasons:
1. too early. the sellors and buyers now are not yet specialized
2. languages that share stuff. Like Chinese and Japanese obviously

I like idnceo's idea about title format:
" ギフト.com/gift/$20K - Japanese "

Even if there is a split, I'd like it to be high level split: East Asian, Cyrillic, Latin, Arabic, Other

You can still do that under "New Posts" - just glance to the right as you scan down, and you can see which category each post was added to (you can see in seconds which are in the sales forums). Then SHIFT+click (or right-click and "Open in New Window") on just those threads you'd like to view, and each one will open in a new browser window which you can then kill when you're done with that thread.

It's not as good as an automatic summary, but it's very quick once you get used to it and it's there "right now".

I like idnceo's idea, but please keep Chinese, Japanese and Korean in the same group.
