I think he is asking why so many names listed for sale are worthless or reg fee and also why often times the sellers call them "premium" names anyway! Something which also annoys me. It's also a reason so many serious buyers or heavy hitters no longer frequent the forums, imo.
Yes, you are right David, I always saw this stuff at that other forum, but DNForum, I always thought of as a place for premium 3l, and other high end names, but I remember a free membership promotion a few months back, and seems like it get's littered with trademark names, and so called premium headings, even if you want to spend money here, it is hard to filter though all the garbage. Not so much discussion anymore, just a stream of dollar domains... I always thought DNForum was a premium forum.
I know 3 or 4 sellers who quickly come to mind who have posted 100s of for sale threads over several years and not one ever posted anything to contribute to the knowledge of the forum members even thou I know these heavy sellers do in fact have considerable knowledge if only they would contribute. One rule change I can think of to help this situation is to require a non-for sale post be made for every sale thread or one article for every X number of sale threads they start.
David, What the other major forum did was put a cap, that only 2 current for sale postings can be listed at any one time, they can post 4 if they pay a fee to upgrade, I think that would solve the issue, but it also would allow others to keep opening, and closing threads, and reposting rapidly.
If there was any relevant discussion it would have been pushed into page 2, in a matter of 15 minutes.
There should be a forum $1K and above, a forum $10k and above, another $100k and above. Maybe one for > $1 M
I think this will have people post more premium names.
it is like rummage sale, but what do you expect... where are the buyers.. are they here?
Pretty sure their not... not like they used to be anyways. Which is why you do not see the good names being traded on this forum... . especially selling to another domain name trader.. Greed's taken over at this point in the industry. No one wants to sell a name less then then the intrinsic value in their inner minds eye. Good luck getting that here... so they sell else where... generally these place market better and attract folks with money.
I remember back in the day you might have an enduser stroll threw... not any more.. theirs places like sedo ... Snap names, bla...bla.. bla..and https://flippa.com/just-sold which lets face it undeveloped names aren't making money like they used to either..
https://flippa.com/just-sold this in itself is proof crap sells if it's developed and packaged correctly...
my conclusion is that the buyers have left... thus it creates a vacuum for filth... sifting through another mans trash for a gold nugget if your looking to buy. If DNF lured in money you would see premium names being traded again on a more constant basis.
Sometimes I find the nuggets in the "Off site Auction link" thread.
Best American made inflatable manufacturer in the USA. Contact me if you have Amusement or Inflatable niche names you want to monetize.
IMO the primary issue is that the owners of the high end names are holding onto them waiting for the market to bounce back. Would you sell a name today for $1,000 that you might be able to sell for $15,000 a year or two from now? Unless you need the cash or that's "low end" in your portfolio, I don't think many people would.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
- Your name is premium - someone else name is junk - That's why you bought the name to begin with
- People jack up the price so they can bump 3 times with reduction
- Not everyone post sold to buy. I always meet the seller at the alley and hand them cash
- Everyone of us are both seller/buyer - If we don't buy then you don't see buyers
- We all want buy low and sell high - Buyers want us to buy low and sell lower
Anyhow - I see everything move as normal - If you don't see it does not mean it did not happen!
i've moaned about lowballers, what is premium, who decides what is premium, no such thing as premium letters, z is now premium letter, anti-premium, non-premium, regular gasoline, etc
but in contrast, i'm serious when i have intent to purchase and i'm definetly serious when considering a "serious" offer.
the same folks who used to buy, still buy..... but maybe under different names or thru a broker, or secret id so you don't know they are the "heavy hitter" that you've been looking for.
if you know i'm the guy with dough. then you're gonna try and stick me up.
that's the mentality of domainers in general and the goal of the collective as a whole.
you can't give a premium label to a forum, then generalize that names posted there should be premium too.
because the opposite would be... to label another forum as non premium and never expect to find anything to dispute that.
that would be a fallacy.
if it's hard to "filter" thru all the garbage, then why not invent a tool that you can use
since most folks don't mind paying for tools now to dig thru lists (garbage) to find names to backorder and bid.
if you ain't willing to dig, then you ain't willing to find.
you just want the gold to be sitting right there on top of the soil?
git yo pan out and sift some dirt dude and you mite find a nugget
I probably have said this more than a couple of times, but it is actually up to Adam (the owner) to decide whether DNForum should remain a "domainers' hangout" (ALL sellers, buying from each other) or going to the next level and become a or even THE mainstream domain name marketplace with end-users (a.k.a. BUYERS).
Profoundly influenced by #Bauhaus, @Nameslave unrepentantly embraces #Minimalism in his #multimedia portfolio. His early works include an experimental adaptation of Chekhov’s Cherry Orchard inspired at least partly by Robert Fripp. His totally irrelevant M.Ed. dissertation examines Organizational Culture and Change Management.
100% The seller always sets the price... the best way to voice your opinion if the price is crazy, is slience...the thread should fall.
everytime we post on a comment we are helping keep the thread alive.
.Buying .ca domains pm with pricing. Looking for mid-high quality will reply.
Adding, there will be too much spam on the forum doing so, when people are creating to GET BY posts, most will be nosense and meaningless. I am sure it will create heck more of work for Adam and other mods.
What do u say.

trying to associate price with quality is another fallacy, as anybody can put any price on any domain.
if everyone doesn't agree that's it's a $10K or $100k name, then what?
same thing, no buyer
and if they are worth $10K or $100K, who's gonna stop a lowballer from offering less?
so maybe, you just wanna "see" some premium names, not necessarily "buy" some.
since "premium" is subjective to who rates it as such, we all could have very different opinions about what "qualifies"
then again, there are premium names staring some folks right in the face, and they wouldn't even know it.
