Everyone's too busy watching their IDN revenue at ND go up.

Re: It's all gone very quiet in here hasn't it ???

The names up for sale here aren't usually high caliber at the moment, can't blame people as many are keeping great names till they are ripe for prime time. I am personally still acquiring IDNs when I see good names at the right prices. For those with IDNs with traffic who are tired of the waiting game, feel free to pm/email me your domains with traffic info and realistic prices.

I think it will remain relatively quiet at least till IDN.IDN for .coms are formally approved and publicized.

Cheers!

Makes sense right. Why visit when nothing going on?

Unless some unexpected positive news happens, you can expect the numbers to go right down for the rest of this year, probably early next year as well.

Nobody is buying, nobody is selling, except for a few crumbs.

Re: It's all gone very quiet in here hasn't it ???

it's quiet because since 2005 this forum has been shuffling along, waiting for news, waiting for a sign, waiting for anything. sometimes we got a rumor, sometimes another piece to the jigsaw, but always a breadcrumb - and enough to keep us coming back for the next breadcrumb.

As of June 20 that all changed. For the first time ever we have a timeline - and if my memory serves me right, around the middle of April next year we get to find out who applied for what gTLD - but until then, aside from parking revenue keep climbing, I don't see a lot happening between now and then - so I'm not at all surprised it's super quiet here; you can go take a nap and come back in April, knowing you haven't missed anything IDN.IDN related.

Re: It's all gone very quiet in here hasn't it ???

I am too damn old too keep waiting, but even decent .jp are not even selling for peanuts here.

I am still making fairly good money off ascii which has been the case all along so may be just one more IDN renewal session. Just looking at Dynadot drops seems a lot of people have already given up, or at least there is a heavy cull going on.

Patience is a virtue. It will all pay off eventually

Yeah, patience is relative to both (a) your age and (b) how long you've been at this game.

"My name is Lee, I'm 43, and have been an IDNoholic for 10 years now"

We're just fortunate the parking situation has improved so much this last 12 months, so renewal fees come out of that now. If they hadn't, I would have been compelled to do another mini-cull by now. You can only bleed money so long before your biz partner wants your balls on a stick.
