View Poll Results: What's your outlook on IDNs and what's your strategy?
I'm on acquisition mode, because i believe IDNs will eventually be worth up to 50% of ASCII. 6 20.00%
I'm not buying because i think IDNs are overvalued - they will follow ASCII PPC valuation model. 2 6.67%
I'm selling as fast as i can because the hype is peaking. 0 0%
I'm buying selectively - few people know about them, so type-in can increase 500-1000 times. 15 50.00%
IDNs are a joke. Having Russian, Chinese or Japanese with .com ext is simply not practical. 1 3.33%
The IDN market now is very messy, i will still register off the market, wide open, drops, though. 3 10.00%
I buy because everyone is buying. :O 0 0%
I'm not doing anything because my GF/Wife scolded me for spending so much time on IDNs. 2 6.67%
I'm just a passerby - see see, look look. :p 1 3.33%

What's your outlook on IDNs and what's your strategy?

Having been into IDNs for 8-9 months, i'm asking myself at which stage are we at? Let's have an anonymous survey on "What's your strategy".

From what i observe, i think either of this might suit you well.

1. I'm buying selectively - few people know about them, so type-in can increase 500-1000 times.

2. I'm on acquisition mode, because i believe IDNs will eventually be worth up to 50% of ASCII.


Hehe, first vote is:

I'm not doing anything because my GF/Wife scolded me for spending so much time on IDNs.


Anyways, my vote is:

I'm buying selectively - few people know about them, so type-in can increase 500-1000 times.

Once you put up an option "My BF/Husband scolded me", then Jose will be able to vote.

Only 10 minutes for me to put in the poll choices, also had to trim to 100 characters!, no time to think that thoroughly, i just put in what came to my mind first, but anyone can vote that GF option to mean BF or even mama, whatever, as long as it's the same idea.

I can agree with #1 , but not with number 2 because i see some IDN's surpassing ASCII value

That 50% is an average figure, but for major languages like Chinese, Japanese and Russian, etc. 50% is a random number, but the idea is there, IDNs are selling for like 1% of ASCII right now?

Re: Having been into IDNs for 8-9 months, i'm asking myself at which stage are we at?

I can only state that I see a very low correlation between the title of the thread and the multiple choice options.

The title seems to be about where abouts in IDNs development we are at.

The options all seem to be more about personal outlooks on the eventual success of the market and peoples levels of optimism.

Yes, some mismatch in thoughts while creating the poll - but i later decided that personal outlook will be a better poll topic, but it's too late to change the thread title. Only the mod can change. Also, the 10 minute time allowance to add in the poll is too short.

Re: Having been into IDNs for 8-9 months, i'm asking myself at which stage are we at?

How about this? I'm on acquisition mode even though my GF/Wife scolds me weekly for spending so much time on IDNs. The IDN market now is very messy and good names are still out there, so I am still registering.

I picked up about a dozen good ones yesterday and a few gambles (in other words, some dot nets I couldn't resist). I am still running through my To Buy list from spring & summer and some dot coms had not been registered. Focus is on Japanese, Korean, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Russian still. My Chinese is terrible.

I think a good majority people are affected by GF/Wife/BF/Husband scolds me weekly. So that option is more for people that have given in to their GF/Wife/BF. LOL

Re: Having been into IDNs for 8-9 months, i'm asking myself at which stage are we at?

You've forgotten "I've finished acquiring and am now waiting for the IDN market to go where I expect it to" or wording something like that.

The above would cover me since I don't believe they're going to go up 500-1,000x but I do believe they will do much better in future, and because I already have 2,000+ IDN I'm happy with, I'm not actively buying/catching/regging much of anything any more.

From other threads on here, it sounded like a lot of folks were in the same boat as me.

Re: Having been into IDNs for 8-9 months, i'm asking myself at which stage are we at?

I have overbought, probably applies to most of us.

I have a good ascii portfolio with some names 4/5 years old the offers have been steadily declining since a peak around this time last year. I am already pruning ,but the old story, difficult to determine the fringe names that will/should have value.

IDN not too difficult to prune as I only have to dump the crap I registered to reduce by around 33%.

All that said I think idns will probably do extermely well and we are all lucky to be in at some part of the birth.

Yes, by and large. Perhaps an average of 1 IDN a day, which is just treading water really...

Yes, big changes in the ASCII market since a year ago, i wish i sold all my ASCII .com completely then. What's the best move at the moment for ASCII, cut loss?

If you are trying to liquidate a lot of half-backed domains, it is probably tougher now than it was this time last year. The hype is still around, but people are getting smarter and they are starting to distinguish between quality and crap.
