Hello

You have a very nice forum here.

I have been into the IDN scene since I snagged www.©.com and www.®.com in 2002 I recently backed those up by aquiring www.©®.com and www.©®.net. Most of the domains that I have purchased in the past have been a little a head of their time, example www.classified.ad ad, so I knew that I would have to play the waiting game with these as well.

When IE 7 is rolled out we should see a real boost in traffic to every IDN that we hold.

Nice to be a part of a group of like minded people.

Just signed up when I saw that I could be member #100. I thought that might win me a door prize, like my choice of one IDN domain from each existing member.

Truth is I think we all realize if you snag a good IDN & sell it we are all rollin' on dubs in 2 years max...

I'm from US, bilingual in Chinese. Total newbie (no domain experience at all). registered duds (now I think) before i stumbled here (thanks everyone for ropes and tips). I have:

北.cn (north)
医.cn (medical)
土地.cn (land)
联网.cn (variation of internet)
馈赠.com (gift)
闪盘.com (flash card, I'm trying to sell this one)

And a few others. Oh, And I have ADHD (acquisitive domain hoarding disorder, a term coined by domo sapiens and hellam_david), and this board is making it worse....

Hi, I am Tim from Germany - probably the first from continental Europe

As many others I startet "talking IDNs" when the verisign/NSI testbed opened in early 2001 but concentrating on german IDNs only.

As you might know, there are german characters that are not part of the ASCII set: The german "umlauts" (Ää,Öö,Üü). Before the implementations of IDNs those had to be paraphrased by the original character plus an "e" (ae,oe,ue).

In March 2004, also the ccTLDs of Germany (.de), Switzerland (.ch) and Austria (.at) (all german-speaking), all introduced those umlaut characters.

As of now, my IDN portfolio consists of about 250 .com and the same amount in .de, and already had a couple of good sales. (no- not übersetzer.de )

I also owned about 50 chinese, japanese, korean and russian ONE CHARACTER IDNs, but I let them drop a year later - NO TRAFFIC! I just checked them for the first time - most if them were immediately re-registered. That tells me I made a mistake when deleting those names.

Neverthess I cant wait for the IE7 to become available!

Looking forward to interesting discussions on this board!!

Genius!

Are you saying we should or should NOT stay under the radar? You were the one to give me idea to register 情色小說. In the process, I discovered how literate the taiwanese is. apparently their novel search is x times their corresponding graphics/video searches. figure that out!

I surrendered my credit cards to my wife. Hopefully that should stop me for a while

Awesome, im saying we should stay UNDER the radar... I dont want the Big Dawgs coming in Taking our names.... This is better than the Dot com Boom in my opinion Because we are aquiring these names at Reg fee.... early in the dot com game names were 45 a year x2- up to 500 x2years.... I hate for them to spoil the hunting ....... I should apply for a C Card with a 50k limit and spend every last cent... Anybdoy think that would be wise ?

You are wayyyy too late to think about us staying under the radar.
The senior members of the forum already have premium portfolios in various languages & I admit probably 40% of the traffic is coming from the fact that they are all pointing their domains to the forum.
The new signups are coming from dnJournal also...

The senior members know the gate has opened & are spreading the love...

You have nothing to gain if we stay under the radar...

All I'll say is we get over 200 "NEW Unique" eyes a day, not counting regulars or repeat traffic.

Guilty. I do have another temporary card

But I'm not planning to max out on it, simply not that many good ones left and I'm cautious about venturing into languages I don't understand. Will keep my day job (if I can, re: ADHD)

i was just reading this thread and i really find that it is amazing the gems that you guys have! a guy mentioned he has "car" in japanese, i guess thats awesome!

about me, i already said grad student at Todai, which in this IDN world means nothing, and i guess my only advantage now (i hope so) is that i understand 7 languages, so i can try to grab IDNs underdeveloped markets. my plan is to transfer many of my 2000 .com portafolio into hundreds of IDNs during January/February and then start growing into even 10.000 in a short time. I guess my bank account will go from xxx.xxx to -x buying IDNs these days! thank god! im not married to use my money as i please.

i must admit i wanna receive my invitation to T.r.a.f.f.i.c 2007 as an Asian Domainer! we will see who among us make it!

Hello Everyone from Shanghai

Hello guys,

I really got motivated to write this post given the fact right now we're 'only' 120 members. I'm 35, from Argentina, living in Shanghai since last year. I came to study chinese (extremely hard, let me tell you) and got interested in the IDN domains (for the time being only interested in chinese domains).

I've got a couple of ideas about how to participate in the "IDN revolution" that to me came a bit late (end of 2005), thanks in great deal to Dave's posts.

So I'm here in Shanghai (I lived 2 years in the US, 1 year in Belgium and a couple of months in Brazil) so anything you need me, I'm more than willing to give the members of this forum a hand.
Yeah, translation is hard, and also the cultural thing is hard. Very exciting times, in China, and in IDN domains!

Gonzalo
PS: One idea I have is IDNmarketplace.com where people can go and offer their domains for sale, and others can go an name a price for the domains they want. What you think?
