Has the forum shrunk?

Or simply reflecting the lack of action?

Re: Has the forum shrunk?

No sales. Dropping traffic due to no auto-complete. No recognized resale market. No more active blogs. No publicity.

Any questions?

True, offered decent names here at very fair prices with no takers.

But then I have quite a few good ASCII names and that market is almost as dead from my point of view.

Re: Has the forum shrunk?

I'm in cruise-control at present, awaiting the final outcome for CNO. Luckily I get the odd ASCII sale that pays for the renewals of the IDN's that aren't paying their own way already.

All the planes are circling the airport in a hold pattern waiting to see whether the fog is going to lift, or the airport permanently shut down.
