Consolidated Sales Threads

If you are listing 10+ domains for sale per week does each domain need its own thread?

Makes the forum rather cluttered. Just my two cents. Thoughts?

Re: Consolidated Sales Threads

I thought there was a rule about the maximum number of sales threads from a single seller per week, but I just checked the rules and there isn't. I'd say a maximum quota for each seller of three sales/auction threads per week would be about right. That way every seller would have a fair go at getting their thread some exposure on the recent sales list, because at the moment they are getting pushed off by the serial sellers, which is annoying both for the other sellers and for members looking for sales from the non-flippers.

Re: Consolidated Sales Threads

It is also a dumb fuck way of doing it, as activity on any one of the domains on the tread bumps all of them.

Multiple domain threads have proven their selves time and time again.

Re: Consolidated Sales Threads

There is already a maximum of 2 threads per 24 hours. Maybe change it to 1?

I agree. Mass bumping is annoying as well. Do we really need all those "48 hours", "24 hours", "12 hours" updates? Quite often there's more bumps than bids.

I agree and I am guilty of it myself, but this would not happen as much if there was not so many single domain sales threads popping up. It's the old what came first the chicken or the egg argument.

Personally I would like to see two sales threads per week per user with as many domains as they want to sell in those two threads. That said, probably way too much work for the moderators.

Bring it on. There are at least 9 Moderators/Admins here, a few are incognito

idn: two sales threads per week is ideal for the forum or for you?

That sounds like a very good idea.

I think everyone agrees with this except me, as I am the only one who sales more than 2 domains/week. But I am ok with whatever the majority decides.

You could still sell way more than 2 domains per week. Just less threads. I actually think you would have more exposure and would probably do better. And it is not just you...I am sure I have had more than two threads in the past.

If you look at page 1 of the IDN Auctions section the last post at the bottom is 4:30 AM (EST). Basically if you listed your domain more than 17 hours or so ago you are already on page 2.

+1

As for the bumps, I reckon one should be allowed.

Re: Consolidated Sales Threads

Why not have a maximum number of active sales threads, like NamePros does? So if you have the maximum number running already you can't start another until one of them is closed.

I think the answer as to why that is a bad idea is the question.

Re: Consolidated Sales Threads

really namepros.com is better in this

you can add two sales thread but you need to close thread once you want to make new thread plus 24 hours rule

i never see bump at namepros with this rule
each thread should closed with domain owner to add new one

you didnt understand idn , the problem is not with 2 threads per 24 hours
the problem that if today i make 2 threads and tomorrow 2 threads so i can bump 4 threads next day

so the best is 24 hours rules with no new thread until you closed your thread

No, I don't think you understand.

I said "I would like to see two sales threads per week per user with as many domains as they want to sell in those two threads."

Never said anything about 24 hours...

Re: Consolidated Sales Threads

I'm ok with 1 domain per thread if it's well described in thread title such as
IDN / Translate / Language / punycode (optional in thread title but must be indicated in offer details)
