What about a sub-forum for Portuguese?
I'm trying to sell the official name of Portugal (.com), but I also have a few other Portuguese domain names. I'm sure others here also have Portuguese domains.
Also, please note that the "Français" forum now is #1 for posts. It is more active than the other sub-forums. Perhaps it should be moved to the top of the list of sub-forums. At a minimum, it should be put at the number two spot, although even that seems like an insult. The Spaniards and Hispanics simply haven't shown an interest in domains that is commensurate with their numbers.

Do you know anyone who visitited the Portuguese Republic? The people that I know go only to Portugal. Nobody uses official names...
Because it is too long.
Except official occasions...
And in most countries, only the authorities are actually entitled to use such a domain.
I'm afraid you're severely out of touch with reality.
There's no use arguing about it when the facts are staring both of us in the face:
Simply try to buy an official name for pennies and see how far you get. You could try one of mine, such as RepublicOfBotswana.com, RepublicOfSierraLeone.com, or CommonwealthOfTheBahamas.com... or why not one that I don't own, such as RepublicOfZimbabwe.com or RepublicOfZambia.com? Heck, try RepubliqueCentrafricaine.com, which is a country you might not have even heard of. See how far you get with your $20 offer, then come back and let me know how it went.
There are only a couple of hundred names in this category in the entire world, and they are intricately linked with national pride.
You wrote, "The people that I know go only to Portugal." I don't know what circles you mingle with, but my friends know of national sovereignty -- they've even taken a gander at the front of their passport. You know, that weird title in huge letters on the front of that peculiar document -- the one that reflects the name of your country.
It's no surprise that the two largest sales I have ever had were both official country names. I guess that cash speaks a little bit louder than your trash talk.
Let me guess what's lurking behind your disdain for these names... could it be... that you don't have any? Because you either didn't have the idea, or just showed up way too late?

I will not try to buy CommonwealthOfTheBahamas.com or any of this long names, because I do not need them. I did not need them in 1996, I did not need them in 2006 (when they were still free) and I do not need them now.
Yes, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is the official name of the UK, but as you can see, this page is just parked, no user will want to type it...
I said: I did not need them in 1996, I did not need them in 2006 and I do not need them now.
I am sure you would register sex.com in 2006 or now...
I'm convinced now. I don't like country names, official or in abbreviated form. Two reasons:
1. Don't get good vibes from people that live in countries. Untrustworthy.
2. I don't need money, either in 1986, 1995, or 2021.
All joking aside, country names don't have a monopoly on the national identity market.
There are also the adjectivals and demonyms. Fancy words, but that just means terms like "Canadian", "British", or "Mexicano". (Only local languages interest me.)
In this category, I have a vastly larger collection than I do for the country names.
Here is just a sampling:
(Means "Mozambican" in Portuguese, the language of Mozambique. This name is for sale now on dnforum. Click Here.)
(Means "Senegalese" in French, the language of Senegal. I also have Sénégal.com, LeSenegal.com, and LeSénégal.com)
(Means "Ivorian" in French, the language of the Ivory Coast / Côte d'ivoire)
(Means Luxembourger in French, the language of Luxembourg.)
This list includes another 10 countries or so, mostly African francophone countries such as Congo, Cameroon, and Guinea.
Then I also have nice names for the U.S. states, such as
for the complete list of names like this for U.S. states, click here. Also for sale now on dnforum

i like AfriqueCentrale .com
Senegalais .com is nice too
Thanks for your comment.
Of all of my domains for sale at dnforum.com, JewishState.com is probably the best bargain. It includes the versions with and without the hyphen, in the .com, .net, and .org (that's six names in all).
The Jewish State is always at the center of world news:
Anybody else still wondering...
Why DN has a "Tagalog" language board (whatever that is), but not a Portuguese language board?
If you build it, they will come...
Hundreds of millions of people in Brazil, Portugal, Angola, Mozambique, Sao Tome e Principe, Guine-Bisau, East Timor.
Being portuguese...i dont really understand why there isn't yet a portuguese board...
I think its a good idea, I could get some help with my few Portuguese language domains. And I think the populations of Brazil and Portugal together would supply a decent number of domainers.
And now we have a portuguese section. YAY!
