Your question was: What is the best option for domain registration - any feedback on GoDaddy?.

Appreciate whomever can report any bids for the silent/extended auction as they come in.....

Comment #1

I will try to keep up the pace. Yea, it went cheap for such a nice generic name...

Comment #2

I would've expected a sale price of atleast 3x that sales price. Honestly, feel bad for the seller - he got robbed...

Comment #3

What day is the main auction?.

On another note does anyone have a moniker rep that actually gets back to you and also when you submit domains?..

Comment #4

The live auction is May 23rd. The silent/extended runs through the 29th.

My rep is Don. I have had him for a little under a year, and he has been excellent so far...

Comment #5

Thanks dude.

Repped officially the lamest auction on the net, it has to be said..

Comment #6

Thanks for posting the initial auction results Charley. Any bids so far in the silent auction?..

Comment #7

Charlie, thanks.

Any idea how many of the sales had more than one bid..

Comment #8

I got this info on another forum:.

Healthproductsonline.com - $480.

Janeiro.com - $100.

Congrats, how many bids did your name get?.

I suppose a sale is a sale but most definitely low prices in comparison to a year or so ago.

Looks like sub prime has hit domains for the time being...

Comment #16

Sorry won't tell you what name I bought, just that I bought one of them..

Comment #17

I see, you bought one. It appeared that you were the owner who sold one.

How many bids did you make..

Comment #18

For those that missed the auction... Here's a video of the bidding for ringtones.org (that went for $120k) http://youtube.com/watch?v=TsULyTkiv3E..

Comment #19

Depends what you mean by under-priced. Take Dot Mobis. If the current trend is conclusive then they are still over-priced. It is a Hero or Zero scenario...

Comment #24

Poor show at the moment with only seven domains receiving bids in the silent. Let's hope there is more action nearer to the end!..

Comment #25

Moniker just called me and told me that the HostGator I purchased in the LIVE AUCTION was not authorized by the seller and was not supposed to be auctioned...

Comment #26

Agreed..

Reviewing the handful ... and based on prior hype and unsubstantiated hysteria ... severely mediocre - to - lackluster "sales" of "dot Mobeys" to Usual Suspect domainers (versus actual End users) here at the recent Traffic, the future is not at all promising when you combine this market reality with the facts that mTLD has done nothing to enforce the mandated development requirements and has clearly abandoned the RFP process! Literally 1,000's of undeveloped .MOBI's are still languishing in the hands of m(oney)TLD, the extension's very DIFFICULT task to brand it's awkward and unnatural four-lettered / two-syllabled nature, and complete - I mean, 100% - LACK of corporate adoption of it's most generic (non ) terms ... I'd say these prices continue to tumble significantly through September, 2008 and beyond IMHO.

Just my two sense. Ouch!.

Seller's remorse?.

-Jeff..

Comment #27

I hope so! The last Traffic silent auction in Las Vegas seemed to have most bids come in the night before or morning the auction ended...

Comment #28

There's an incredible name there that I wish I had gotten! I really should have paid more attention to this auction, dammit...

Comment #29

Wow, more "dot mobey" bashing by the Usual Suspect. surprise surprise.

Thanks everyone for the bidding updates. Snipe bidders are poised no doubt, watch the final minutes as usual...

Comment #30

They said the seller did not agree to the authorization to sell or something like that, they said it was just a general mistake. Not sure exactly...

Comment #31

Where does it say that mTLD has abandoned the RFP process? I know of one issued several weeks ago. This whole post has been addressed already. They are working on a sensible way to enforce noncompliance, not some knee-jerk reaction...

Comment #32

Hopefully you'll receive prompt clarification -and- resolution on this matter!.

All the best, and please keep us posted ... This is something that should have been well thought out ahead of time, IMHO.

To me, it's more clear each and every day that mTLD is in this thing for the greed MONEY only ... and at the expense of actual developments, "ecosystem", and promotions!.

Acquisitions of these "dot Mobey" domains at the event - getting back on the topic of Traffic - amongst Usual Suspect "dot Mobey" domainers / handful of regular traders bidding each other up is hardly - SADLY - forward progess, in my view.

Best of Luck..

-Jeff..

Comment #33

It is not even worth it to answer this...

Comment #34

If you can manage to stay on topic with your reply / answer, I'd - and I'm sure many of those here who are interested in addressing the increasing concerns (including progressively lackluster "sales" at Traffic!) and overall (non)performance of mTLD and undeveloped (including generics) .MOBI's in particular - would appreciate the input, IMHO.

Thanks kindly..

-Jeff..

Comment #35

Seems like you're the only one with increasing concerns about .mobi and there is no satisfying your spin machine and I think Coast sees your sig and recognizes it.

It's been noted elsewhere that all prices are down, yet somehow for you this means the death throws of mobi. For me it means more buying opportunities.mobi buyers at the live auction got some great deals...

Comment #36

Focus, Paul ... the discussion here is about Traffic and my reply (with an hopeful forthcoming response) to Coast was with respect to the increasing concerns and continued lackluster "sales" (to folks who are likely not ever going to be developing them in the near future!) at Traffic of .MOBI's - your constant reference to my Namepros signature adds no substance whatsoever to this conversation, and frankly, does little to keep the thread here on topic, friend. Although it does satisfy your very public .MOBI Agenda! But "dot Mobeys" are notably trending DOWNWARD at the Traffic Shows ... this must be a major concern that can be hopefully be addressed above by Coast, IMHO. They are also being "purchased" by fellow Usual Suspect .MOBI domainers and - again - NOT being developed! To then add insult to injury, now mTLD is not even sure how they are, or are not, going to actually enforce their development mandates ... these are critically important aspects worthy of discussion (that is, if you can find it in your realm to discuss (or permit Coast to respond) substantive matters other than my #1 Namepros signature)! PS. Which "dot Mobeys" did you bid up and then purchase at Traffic ?

Thank you..

-Jeff..

Comment #37

Your concerns have been addressed at length in many other threads, yet I would respectfully point out that it is not I who is off topic and posting duplicate threads, not to mention posting misinformation about the RFP process. Since I possess neither the time nor energy to be a broken record I am not going to address these concerns a fifth, sixth, or two hundredth time. You are entitled to your opinion and you obviously have management support so continuing in any fashion makes no sense.

For the benefit of those entering the discussion for the first time, if you are a .mobi developer, please pm me. The one thing I will grant Jeff is that there is a need for development and I am in need of subcontractors...

Comment #38

^ Classic .MOBI Spin and non answer ... but I guess I can respect your increasingly tenuous position, Coast. Thanks for allowing me to share my opinions, as well!.

It's ashame, really, that we couldn't get some candor and substance - with respect to .MOBI "sales" at Traffic - here today for the #1 Community!.

We're all aware, of course, of the four initial premium RFP's that instead were auctioned for GREED mTLD MONEY, but for those new or newer to Namepros you may certainly PM me directly for those specifics and for candid, balanced conversation.

Onward and upward..

-Jeff..

Comment #39

What are your goals here, Jeff? To park a name and get ppc income? If so then yes, you should definitely stay away from .mobi. Is your goal a quick flip in the hundred thousand dollar range for a so-so name? Then yes, stay away from .mobi, by all means. I find it incredibly ironic that you continue to call NP the #1 mobi community, yet your continued tirades in any thread derail the topics and prevent anyone from getting any work done in a thread and drive people to find other means of communication.

Nobody forced anyone to pay what they did for these names. They had a business plan in mind and a modicum of patience to build something small and they know full well they will rebuild it as technology improves and as new tools are available for the masses. Stop treating .mobi as just another tld - it isn't.

Honestly I should treat you like my best friend. You inspire me to go and build every mobi name I can get my hands on if for no other reason than to prove you wrong.

Coast..

Comment #40

^ Hopefully you - and Paul - are doing exactly that Coast! Why you both spend so much time (potentially at the cost of above) posting on the forums at this critical juncture is, frankly, beyond me, IMHO.

You can PM me directly with your thoughts on the other critical matters here and increasing concerns of the "dot Mobey" (as they relate to the Usual Suspect "sales" at (our topic) Traffic and - still - lack of actual enforcement from mTLD), as well.

Have a pleasant evening.

-Jeff..

Comment #41

Gee, Jeff, thanks for looking out for us. What a guy. See? You're totally being my friend. Off to develop now.....

Comment #42

Jeff, you are easily the most prolific poster here regarding .mobi, bringing it up in just about every thread you can. Why you spend your time doing this is frankly beyond me.

Here again I have pointed out your #1 anti .mobi agenda only to get an earful of your BS advice on how I should spend my time.

Thanks again to everyone providing auction updates and kindly forgive Jeff's recurring .mobi thread derailment, he apparently can't help himself...

Comment #43

I've noticed over time most of your posts (the vast majority of which are in the .mobi forums) are generally praising .mobi or making digs at .mobi naysayers (in particular Jeff). Now I'm not saying you aren't entitaled to do that, but if Jeff is the ultimate .mobi naysayer does this make you the ultimate .mobi cheerleader?..

Comment #44

Scandi is a realistic guy... it's just that jeff is always so extreme with the .mobi stuff. it's just fun to respond to him sometimes..

Like this: hey Jeff lets have another argument where I prove your extremist opinions wrong like I always do...or maybe lets stop hijacking threads...

Comment #45

It's no mystery that I'm enthusiastic about .mobi. But I don't go around injecting it in every other unrelated thread. I came here for auction updates and was greeted with more of the anti mobi diatribe. As before I paused to point out the anti .mobi Agenda and get an earful. It is not a topic I introduced here, merely something I am responding to. I honestly don't care if people love or hate .mobi, I just don't see a need to have .mobi injected in every other unrelated thread...

Comment #46

You think situation with .mobi (price falls) is unrealated to a thread about the latest Traffic auction? I'm sure you can't see the bias in your comments, wasn't Scandi once banned from the .mobi forum for his over the top comments on .mobi?..

Comment #47

You want to open up that can of worms?.

Let's all talk about the auction some more.

(Ok, you caught me, I'm taking a break LOL)..

Comment #48

No, just pointing out the obvious. It is hypocritical for the cheerleaders to point fingers with claims of bias and aganda when they are just as one eyed as the naysayers.

(also I edited my orginal post before as he was just banned from the .mobi section)..

Comment #49

To set the record straight, Scandi's temporary ban was made in error and is something which I (as .mobi mod) quickly brought to RJ's attention and to his credit was quickly rectified...

Comment #50

According to RJ it was a complete accident and was unbanned almost immediately. but who knows really..

I was recommended to be banned from the .mobi forum too and I think I'm pretty realistic.. I think some of us were just being too mean to jeff... if there is such a thing...

Comment #51

^ Paul, you really need some original content - not to mention, unique and compelling developments of your own "dot Mobeys" for those that are "on the go", my friend ... as I'm the one here who originally posed the exactly-termed question to you, "why you spend your time posting on the forums (versus developing) is, frankly, beyond me", IMHO. In yet another attempt to once again get in the last word, Paul - I suppose to try to discredit me and once again pump back up the sinking "dot Mobey" - you're failing to mention that .MOBI's did, in fact and however poorly, "sell" here at the Traffic show ... and, hence, it's germaine to this discussion as to why there are serious concerns as to their downward trend and lack of developments (and compliance on the part of m()TLD!.

PS. Balance here at #1 Namepros is very important ... thanks to Mr. Snoop above for pointing out some very important aspects of this here in this thread, as an example of that desire - and I would argue, need - for this balance in our #1 Community, IMHO. Avoid the HYPE smoke and mirrors, ask the questions (and demand answers!) ... and come to your own conclusions, my friends!.

Have a great night.

-Jeff..

Comment #52

Dude, not many people see themslves as "unrealistic". At the end of the day we are all biased. Log into your registrar account, they list your biases when you click "view my domains"...

Comment #53

What have I said that isnt realistic? give me an example...

Comment #54

The comment bout Jeff being "so extreme with the .mobi stuf" while Scandiman is a "a realistic guy" for one...

Comment #55

Jeff has a habit of taking any opportunity to post (in unrelated threads) the same talking points he's been posting about .mobi for more than a year now. scandi doesnt do this, and neither do many other people.

Its literally copy and paste at this point... you disagree?..

Comment #56

The thing is both Scandiman and yourself have brought up this "unrelated threads" issue, but the thread we are in is clearly related to .mobi price falls? So is it possible the other threads are in the same category of being "not actually unrelated to .mobi"?..

Comment #57

This is a thread for Traffic auction updates in general man... read the first page. Jeff is the first one to elaborate on dotmobi with his boring, recycled talking points. he took Rubber Ducks comment and ran with it.. like always, looking for a way in since he cant talk about .mobi in the actual .mobi forum, because he's on "voluntary leave" and is prohibited from posting in it.

Debate is cool, but I like having conversations with humans...

Comment #59

Sure, I'd be happy to discuss the prices of .mobi domains in the auction, and will get to that shortly. But this is the nonsense I first responded to: This anti .mobi drivel is devoid of substance and is mostly spin and is a disservice to this forum.

Getting back to your question snoop, the underlying value proposition of .mobi remains unchanged. It's the only ICANN approved extension for mobile web content which services a big and growing user base. Auction prices up or down do nothing to change that. Also what seems to be forgotten is that while these mTLD Premium domains are sold in a domainer venue, they are as far as I know the only names present that comes with requirements to develop them, not the favorite past time of domainers. Without a doubt those requirements are a put off for many in the room. But regardless of all that, .mobi market values are down, no denying it.

For me it presents an extended buying opportunity. Again, the real value proposition of .mobi is the same, if other domainers don't see it now, that is fine with me. When they do see it, I'll probably be there to sell them some nice names for a nice profit. Next year or 5 years from now, who knows. So many variables effect the markets.

Thanks yandig..

Comment #60

Thanks! Looks like there are a few more bids...

Comment #61

It's "dotMobi" you douche.

The only difference between you and a troll is that you get a free pass...

Comment #62

Yeah, Jeff it giving it the benefit of whatever doubt there is left.

Most of the rest of us are just enjoying the wake. Vindicated after predicting Mobi bombing for about 2 years. Hopeful this will blow a big enough hole in the circus known as TRAFFICS to enable Domaining to establish itself as a bona-fide industry. How can it be unrelated. You sound just like those that think it is alright to bang on about dot Com all day long, but as soon as the possibility of it being registered in a different script, then it is heresy. This has always been my problem with Traffics is that it is not a free and open market place.

The Death of dot Mobi was the biggest thing to come out of TRAFFICS. It could not have had a more friendly venue. Rick basically launched the extension single handed. And not even he could resussitate it...

Comment #63

It seems to me that all but one of the .mobi names sold, meaning the sellers had realistic reserves on them. How you see that as dead is beyond me...

Comment #64

I think they were all registry names? Not sure what the actual reserves were but generally they have a "whatever they can get" attitude...

Comment #65

Very sensible strategy in my opinion. You should all consider doing the same!.

The reason Jeff is tolerated is that he brings a crucial sense of balance to what would otherwise be a whole load of pump and dump hype.

Tolerated? No, greatly appreciated!..

Comment #66

Pretty hard to do in practice, easy for the registry since it is employees making the decision and the registry paid nothing for the names. Agree with that Duck...

Comment #67

You've obviously made up your mind, even a moderate decline in prices is the death of something to you. You're entitled to your views. I suggest you don't invest in it if you have no vision for it. For me, declining prices present a buying opportunity, you're welcome of course to buy when the prices are higher if that is your preference...

Comment #68

Yes, but unless you live in Cloud Cuckoo land it ain't gong to get any easier.

Dot Mobi was fatally holed by the launch of the iPhone. It has just taken longer to sink than the Yorktown. Probably because so many assumed Rick could not be wrong. They will learn that Rick is actually wrong about a lot of stuff...

Comment #69

Sure, the device that is helping to build the main user base for the extension is fatal to it. Got to love that reasoning...

Comment #70

The price declines seem to be something like 70-80% from what I can see of it, not exactly a "moderate decline"...

Comment #71

I think he is referring to the Iphone's capability in displaying full websites...

Comment #72

I would think 90+ is more realistic. Well, if you cannot understand the impact that being able to get a reasonably full browsing experience is going to have on dot Mobi, when it's whole raison d'etre was based around the limited connectivity you would get out of a moblile device, then you are about the only one that can't...

Comment #73

Here is the results,.

Computers- 9.5k.

Airlines 9.5k.

Boats 6k.

Mortgage- 18k.

Men 10k.

Sales 10.5k.

Forsale 5k.

Drugs 17.5k.

Films 10k.

Show 5k.

Escort 10k.

Company- PASS.

Religion 3k.

Records 8.5k.

Can you imagine men.mobi getting 100k+ at the time flowers.mobi got 200k or mortgage.mobi getting 180k+? I can't. These are very strong .mobi's but not the "absolute pinnacle" type of names that has come up for auction before. I think most of those 10-18k names would have been 40-80k names at the peak...

Comment #74

Seems about right to me.

I'd say the decline was more than moderate as well it was very noticeable to even people who don't invest in .mobi...

Comment #75

Oh my god, the iphone argument still....

I feel embarrassed for some of you that actually believe that because full web surfing is possible, nobody is interested in the concept of websites that actually fit onto a 3" screen and designed from the ground up with mobility in mind.

Not just .mobi sites either, I mean all specially designed websites that are made-for-mobile whatever TLDs they use.

Hey Duck: surfing the internet in english is possible, I guess that means the concept of IDN is dead since there is already 1 way to do it. niche markets do not exist... it's all one big lie...

Comment #77

Anyone else scimming through just to find the results?.

This discussion seems like a mild hijack...the OP asked for "news" not commentary...

Comment #78

Thanks Len, quoting for improved awareness thanks to the debate going on. Please, if you don't like .mobi, simply don't buy/sell them. Noone is forcing you to do anything and if you feel you have to fight for an extension/investment for it's success then you may want to reassess the situation entirely. Back to TRAFFIC.....

Comment #79

70-80%??.

Check your glasses and your calculator. How about some real sales numbers and domains for you to chew on:.

Mortgages.mobi - $10,500 (2006) No dev requirements.

Mortgages.mobi - $25,000 (2007 TRAFFIC) No dev requirements.

Mortgage.mobi - $18,000 (2008) Dev Requirements.

These numbers show about a 30% decline using this real world example and I suspect it would be less of a decline if there were no dev requirements and a better economy. Maybe even an increase if housing market was not in the toilet, especially for mortgage.mobi.

Can you show me your 70-80% decline comparing very similar domains like these?..

Comment #80

Mortgage.mobi is a stronger name than Mortgages.mobi. Maybe .mobi prices aren't down 70%, but they're definitely down 50%+...

Also, I don't think anyone ever took mtld seriously with the whole RFP and development thingy at least me and Jeff sure as heck never did...

Comment #81

Why is every sale compared to flowers? You can imagine what sale prices might have been all day long. Doesn't amount to squat. How about some real numbers to chew on.

Florida 2006 T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Conference live auction:.

These are the historic prices from the same venue. Combining 2006 and 2007, the median price for .mobi is $10,250. This latest auction has a median price of $9,500. Yet another moderate decline. You have to be looking at the extremes in order to find your 70-80% declines...

Comment #82

Not sure about the percentage.. but price drops have happened, as expected.

But take it from me, somebody that bought lotsa .mobi during landrush and has been selling on the aftermarket constantly... it is the difference of 'insanely great prices', and 'amazing prices', given that it is a relatively new extension and usually whoops .info's ass or ties with it.

Like I always say, unless these things drop below $60 (landrush registration price) then the price drops are very easy to deal with for those that jumped first, when the criticism was highest...

Comment #83

Yet another thread deteriorated into a .mobi Yea and nay parade!!!..

Comment #84

I think that loseweight.info is one of the more overpriced ones on there...

Comment #85

A lot of water has passed under the bridge in the last few months. http://domainnamewire.com/2007/12/05...record-616000/.

DotMobi fans are cheering today after Sedo concluded it's most successful .mobi auction to date. According to an unofficial tally from HostGator Name Wire, the auction cleared $1.5M in sales.

The highest sale was Music.mobi, which sold for an astonishing $616,000. Games.mobi sold for $401,500. Compare this to the record sale prior to this event, Flowers.mobi for $200,000.

With prices this high, major investors clearly took part in the auction. Both music and games are prevelant on mobile phones, so it's no surprise that these domains sold for a premium. But these prices were unexpected by even many of the biggest .mobi promoters. Earlier this week I predicted that Games.mobi might break the Flowers.mobi record, but these numbers are simply astonishing.

Other notable sales include:.

Sports.mobi $101,000.

Movies.mobi $82,000.

Juegos.mobi $61,000.

Game.mobi $61,000.

Videos.mobi $51,000.

Photos.mobi $51,000.

Fashion.mobi $32,000.

Video.mobi $25,555.

Dictionary.mobi $21,500.

Musica.mobi $20,600.

Movie.mobi $20,500..

Comment #86

Name one premium / generic "dot Mobey" HostGator name that has been a verified, completed sale - ie., not still having mTLD in the Whois contact details - from Traffic (or Sedo, for that matter) to an corporate / End user that now has an unique and compelling fully developed website for exclusive use by those that are "on the go" ... and is now being promoted to the masses? Righto, mTLD abandoned - as predicted - the RFP process for GREED MONEY ... and if the mandated 6-month development requirements are not even going to be enforced, then it's further evidence that mTLD is purely in this thing for immediate PROFITS!.

For those that demand answers and balance to the whole mTLD / "dot Mobey" situation (fiasco) - including their incestuous participation in the Traffic shows - it is becoming increasingly more and more difficult and problematic for those who are proponents of the extension to actually defend what has transpired to date, in my view.

PS. Any more Traffic updates, .MOBI or otherwise?.

Here is some popularity figures for mortgage versus mortages,.

From wordtracker,.

2128 mortgage.

914 mortgages.

From Google.

Mortgage 223,000,000.

Mortgages 85,800,000.

From Overture.

Mortgage.com 8500.

Mortgages.com 205.

I think the singular is probably 2-3 times more valuable than the plural...

Comment #90

I believe other members who are not interested in the .mobi debate have requested that this thread not be hijacked further ... since you already mentioned these points in this very thread, kindly open your own thread if you want to discuss mtld further and I will be happy to discuss this more elsewhere...

Comment #91

The question(s) that have been raised directly relate to "dot Mobey" domains that have supposedly "sold" at Traffic (the thread topic here) ... but I understand that you've been reluctant or not been able to adequately address these increasing concerns earlier in the thread, Coast. Please PM me directly if you can one day address these very problematic and mounting concerns!.

Thank you. Thanks again, Yandig..

-Jeff..

Comment #92

Silly demands Jeff. But I use this .mobi site every day: Weather.mobi - mTLD Premium generic name - Now owned by The Weather Channel - Fully developed and promoted on weather.com (US Alexa rank #23) http://www.weather.com/mobile/dotmobi.html.

"weather.mobi brings you the weather information you need in a quick, easy-to-view design that's perfect for all mobile phone users.".

I'm sure there will be more, at least from those companies who see value in generic names to begin with, most are more interested in promoting their brands instead of generics. AAA.mobi, ESPN.mobi, BofA.mobi, BMW.mobi, Hertz.mobi, Smirnoff.mobi, FoxNews.mobi, Nokia.mobi etc. are perfect examples...

Comment #93

Jeff, stop it. PM me if you have concerns...

Comment #94

I've been waiting for your answers via PM since Page 1 here, Coast. Take care for now.

Again, the question was ... one premium / GENERIC "dot Mobey" HostGator name that has been a verified, completed sale from Traffic (or Sedo) to an corporate / End user that now has an unique and compelling fully developed website! Most here are aware - IMHO - of the incest that has occurred with the unusual "extended double trial" of (former / abandoned RFP) Weather.mobi ... what was the exact nature and specific financial arrangement for this propoganda/hype link, Paul?.

PS. Here is the real Weather.com Mobile link (linked directly from their home page as; weather.com on your mobile phone: http://www.weather.com/mobile/ Link: http://xhtml.weather.com/xhtml/search.

Let's move on, as these proponent rosey posts are just more repeated NON answers ... and yet again, regurgitated less-than-newsworthy "news" and unsubstantiated .MOBI Agenda drivel! Good Luck with the remaining Traffic auctions!.

-Jeff..

Comment #95

Jeff, deny it all you want but the link I provided in my post, http://www.weather.com/mobile/dotmobi.html is found on weather.com. It CLEARLY advertises and promotes weather.mobi.

Jeff, how many premium / GENERIC .com HostGator names have a verified, completed sale since Sept '06 from Traffic (or Sedo) to a corporate end user that now has an unique and compelling fully developed website? If .com is King, let's look at that first...

Comment #96

^ This is called subterfuge, friends ... Unbelievable.

PS. Again, here is the real Weather.com Mobile link >> and it is linked directly from their HOME PAGE (and not on some obsure page / link that only enthusiasts of the "dot Mobey" can find as part of their propoganda, IMHO) as; "weather.com on your mobile phone": http://www.weather.com/mobile/.

Or, simply go to Google.com and type in: "weather mobile" (PM with your results)! As always, Caveat Emptor, friends ... Traffic or otherwise, IMHO.

-Jeff..

Comment #97

No Jeff, it's called applying the same standard across the board. You set up unrealistic and false expectations of the .mobi extension and then declare it is a failure when your silly bar is not met. All the while no extension can meet your demands but somehow it only applies to .mobi. I ask your own question back to you and you accuse me of evasion and deception. Ridiculous.

.mobi auction prices are down, no one is arguing the opposite. I also read .com prices are down. Is anyone arguing the opposite? Is this the death of .com also? No, nor is it the death of .mobi. Face it, .mobi is here to stay whether you like it or not. Same for .net, .org, .info, etc. If .mobi is not your thing, don't buy it. But refrain from slandering .mobi enthusiasts, accusing them of subterfuge when all they do is spend their own money on domains of their liking...

Comment #98

It is 100% subterfuge (along with a healthy dose of the .MOBI Agenda), Paul ... because you, and Coast, have consistently failed to adequately answer the questions and concerns that have been been raised here directly relating to the "dot Mobey" domains that have supposedly "sold" at Traffic (which is the thread topic), IMHO. The answer is ZERO! None. NADA. (And, as you very well know, it certainly wasn't the "weather.mobi" arrangement)!.

And finally, your highly obscure, incestuous, "propoganda link" is NOT linked from the Weather.com home page ... but the following IS RIGHT NOW directly linked from the HOME PAGE: "weather.com on your mobile phone": http://www.weather.com/mobile/.

Fact.

Goodnight for now, friends..

-Jeff..

Comment #99

Guess what Jeff, I don't jump through your silly hoops. But apparently you can continue unabated with your slander. Emeritus = Immunity. You really must clean those turd colored glasses, go to their homepage, weather.com, scroll down to the bottom and there is a whole section for mobile. The first link reads, "Free Mobile Web", click it. Scroll down and there in bright orange is a .mobi logo, next to it you can read for yourself, "And, now you can access our weather content on weather.mobi.

I know it pains you to see it, but I use it every day, along with an ever increasing number of users. The Weather Channel Interactive Inc doesn't care about the .mobi auction results in the domainer community, they got their killer .mobi domain, as well as their earlier one, TWC.mobi, which also works BTW.

Prices rise and fall. Whatever, thats the nature of things. I like low prices so my purchasing $ will go further. If you want to wait until the prices are much higher to buy domains, that is your prerogative...

Comment #100

Paul, name just ONE generic HostGator name in my specific question above? Thus far, you have refused (evaded) to answer the question and instead attempted to discredit me and my opinions, IMHO.

PS. Here is the less than obsure real mobile content link from Weather.com ("weather.mobi" - ANOTHER FACT - was not "sold" at Traffic, by the way): Even suggesting that "dot Mobey" prices could go higher is libelous!.

Goodnight.

-Jeff..

Comment #101

Jeff, your question is meaningless so I don't answer it. You discredit your own opinions, you don't need my assistance. Sure, bright orange .mobi logos are obscure. Do you hear yourself? So what if it wasn't sold at an auction, who cares? It's a developed AND promoted site on a Premium Generic HostGator name owned by a major corporation, exactly what you claim is needed for the extension to thrive but you ignore the facts when presented to you. First you accuse me of subterfuge and now libel? Why? Because I have an opinion and a plan to spend my own money? Jeff, you need to refrain from the slander. You just continue to make yourself look worse. If you or anyone else is not into .mobi, then don't buy it...

Comment #102

The FACT that there have been ZERO verified "dot Mobey" premium / generic domains "sold" at (thread topic >) Traffic (or Sedo) to any corporate / End user(s) that are now promoting unique and compelling fully developed websites for exclusive use by those that are "on the go" ... is, or should be, EXTREMELY MEANINGFUL for all those seeking the truth about mTLD and it's highly problematic extension, IMHO. It wasn't RFP'd and it certainly wasn't auctioned at Traffic ... but you countered (not answered) my specific question above regarding the generic "dot Mobeys" sold at Traffic with "weather.mobi" (your post #115 here) and that is FACTUALLY INCORRECT! "Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence. -John Adams (1770). PS.

Yandig?.

See you tom'w.

-Jeff..

Comment #103

What part about established brands preferring to use their brand name .mobi domains don't you understand? Weather.mobi was indeed offered up via the RFP process and awarded to The Weather Channel Interactive Inc. Of course you know this but disregard this fact, just like you disregard the bright orange .mobi logo on their weather.com website...

Comment #104

Jeff, to non-answer your question, I am an individual who likes .mobi and believes it is a good vehicle for getting information to end users via development, which is not perfect yet, but I am doing the best I can since I did not come into this expecting to become a developer. As it turns out, prices for .mobi are lower than .com because, surprise, they have to be developed since there is no historical traffic. That is fine with me. When I am ready to buy more, they should be in my price range and then I will put in the work to make them more valuable.

Furthermore, I am not employed by mTLD. Here is their website if you want to talk with them directly about anything else that you wish to cross examine me about, because as far as I am concerned this conversation is over: http://mtld.mobi/node/997.

The rest of you, please try to excuse the fact that Jeff brought this argument here instead of in the .mobi forum where it belongs and those of us who didn't like what he had to say disagreed with him.

I hope you get the answers you are looking for regarding the final sales prices from this T.R.A.F.F.I.C. auction...

Comment #114

Thanks a lot for the list. Rep added. It seems that the prices are far lower than previous auctions. UUUN.com, for example, would have received a higher amount if sold here...

Comment #115

Thansk for the lists. +Rep to Yandig. I would give you one Len, but I have to wait to give another...

Comment #116

Pretty freakin' weak IMO. A couple names I submitted I was sure would sell based on how past auctions go didn't, in general activity on a lot of domains was low, and I think overall this + the live auction were big flops. I don't fully blame Moniker - some of this is the economy taking it's toll...I myself have been more careful with my money and passed up probably an easy $2500+ profit LLL.com flip opportunity because I didn't want to use up most of my savings for it "just in case" it's hard to find a buyer right now. Still, I think Moniker needs to cut the ridiculous terms they're making people agree to, cut the commission down, and figure out some way to improve the quality of what they take in and sufficiently bring buyers to these auctions. I just thought in comparison to previous Traffic silent auctions especially that this silent auction was really weak and IMO a letdown...

Comment #117

Over 120 with just a single bid - not much of an auction and very much a buyers market all around atm...

Comment #118

Another interesting sale from the silent auction,.

Ringtone.mobi - $10,000.

Ringtones.mobi sold in November last year for $145,000.

Obviously the plural is several times better though I think ringtone.mobi would have got 30-40k+ last year...

Comment #119

A lot of the .coms seem to be down 25-50% in this auction, .mobi seems to be down at least 50%, probably 60-70% imho. I think you're talking about the LLL.com I bought over at the other forum? Have to agree no clue if it'll be an easy resell in today's economy. I'll keep it if not, I kinda like the name.

And yes, the terms of this auction are horrible, as were most of the sales. I feel so bad for the OW.com seller... He could have done way better selling it here (at least after you factor Moniker's commission into the picture)...

Comment #120

Yea, no kidding on OW.com - kind of a travesty a name like that going as low as it did in a venue like that.

I forget exactly what the name was but the LLL.com I was referring to was actually one on Sedo auction from a forumer here...he had even posted here that it was on auction and I felt so bad esp. wanting to bid but not being able to that I posted in response. It was a triple-premium that sold for only $12.5k...I couldn't believe it when I saw it. Especially factoring in commission, that's just horrible luck...

Comment #121

I pretty much agree, would have said around a 33% down for .com's, 70-80% for the .mobi's.

Regarding ow.com I don't think it is really a cheap price in the current market. Who really wants wants to spend big on trophy names in a recession? Wrong market for it...

Comment #122

If I would have had 1 month's notice (to sell some names) it was going to go for such an insanely low amount, I would have bought it.

Not all of us non-Americans are hurting.

Edit: I'm probably not the smartest domainer in that regard, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who likes trophy domains..

Comment #123

Realistically though that is never going to happen is it? The marketplace is made of people "with the cash", those people set the prices. Not the people who could, would, should....This is particularly true when cash is tight. Not meaning to be rude hear, just saying it as it is.

I'm pretty sure if the name were auctioned again tomorrow the price wouldn't be much different...

Comment #124

I'm fairly certain you're right on that count Snoop (considering WT closed at $112,000 [unsold] yesterday).

Very sad.....

Comment #125

^ Good observation(s) ... the Traffic "dot Mobeys" are clearly OFF and by a very large percentage from prior HYPE Traffic (and Sedo) events - realistically, 75% - 85%+ or more from those bogus prices, IMHO. And that's the good news!.

The recurring BAD NEWS, of course, for the extension are that these Usual Suspect "sales" are not leading to actual developments and promotions of actual "on the go" websites and very necessary "ecosystem", in my judgement. mTLD has chosen to auction these premium / generic domains, and has since not followed through with ensuring that they would fulfill their prescribed mandated development requirement - while 1,000's of them still reside under mTLD ownership and languishing undeveloped!.

In many respects, mTLD - through these Traffic (and Sedo) auctions and in abandoning the RFP process for these generics - has caused the downfall of the extension! My educated guess is you'll now start to see some new "Press Releases" out of mTLD (and a new hype push drivel here on the forums) to try to buy it more time (and, as always, including GREED CASH), but in the end it will have no effect on this downward spiral, IMHO.

Thanks to those posting and commenting on ALL of the Traffic updates and it's discussion - "dot Mobey" or otherwise - I think it's been a nice, open, and balanced discussion of the current state of affairs! For those new and newer to domains, I think this unique balance here at your #1 Namepros is very important to seeing the larger picture (in any extensions)!.

-Jeff..

Comment #126

You need to keep up with current events before declaring that the RFP process has been abandoned...

Comment #127

^ Hammer. Head. Nail.

-Jeff.

PS. Please see this thread link for further discussion on the topic of the demise of the "dot Mobey": http://www.namepros.com/475436-offic...-thread-4.html..

Comment #128

Jeff, your hatred is clouding your vision again. You bust mTLD's nuts that they have abandoned the RFP but are currently working on releasing some of their most valuable domains via RFP right now. As usual regarding .mobi, you know not what you are talking about. Living in hate will do that to a person...

Comment #129

Mtld hasn't followed through with the development requirements on any of the other names now have they? Why would we expect it to be any different this time around.

I'll admit I've been busy and haven't kept up with mobi events, but I don't recall reading anything about mtld enforcing their dev requirements.....

Comment #130

^ Exactly!.

V Furthermore ... ^ Paul, this is the exact type of hype drivel that I've been pointing out from you (and a dwindling handful of others) for some time ... I don't hate anyone or anything, but I do LOVE the #1 Namepros Community and answers and fair balance (and you (and a few others) still continue to provide neither or any real substance, in my view).

I specifically discussed " ... and in abandoning the RFP process for these generics" above - it is a - again - FACT that they abandoned the first four premium GENERICS! It is a FACT that mandated development requirements are still not being enforced (from Traffic (and Sedo)!!.

Whatever it is that they're now devising - and that you're now beginning to hype SPIN as I predicted above - it likely will have little to do with what we would consider pure generic / "premium" terms (and mandated developments), and it will most definitely further line the pockets of mTLD - and those at the top of the pyramid - with GREED MONEY! Please, stop with the constant spin Paul.

PS. Non Traffic related discussion can be continued in the thread link that I posted above, as well..

Congratulations to buyers and sellers of the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. auction. That's what we're talking about, right?..

Comment #134

That's what we were supposed to be talking about..

Comment #135

Righto, ^ that's another excellent thread highlighting the important balance in the unique, open sharing of opinions - Pro or Con or otherwise - that is extended here to the #1 Community, IMHO.

Anyway, back on topic ...

As posted by Caroline Greer (from mTLD) on 01 May 2008 at 10:10 PM: Firstly, with respect to the "sales" of these .MOBI's at the this most recent Traffic event, the main SELLER (versus promised, FAIR distribution via the RFP process to End users that would have ensured development!) of these domains was again mTLD!.

Do we yet know who the respective, verified BUYERS are ... and what their specific plans are for the mandated developments of these HostGator names, and how they'll be promoting these new, developed sites in the very near-term?.

Furthermore, what about the earlier "buyers" (with the exact same 6-month development mandates!) from Traffic (and Sedo) from NOW MORE THAN SIX MONTHS AGO ... who are they, and why is mTLD now not enforcing their developments (and, because of this, not taking back the domains that they had purchased in accordance with the promised and unequivocal development deadline / mandate / signed agreement)?.

IYHO's. Let's get this nagging and very troubling question addressed (regarding the VERY PUBLIC mandated development requirements and their enforcement!).

Thanks for your kind assistance..

-Jeff..

Comment #136

So you revived this thread from a week ago with more copy-n-paste mobi talk that you've pasted a million times.

Slow night, Jeff?..

Comment #137

It's a beautiful evening, but the only thing that was copied was Caroline Greer's blog post that are in the above quotes, of course properly so IMHO.

Could we please get a prompt answer to this VERY IMPORTANT question and concern? It is, by far, THE #1 subject and concern that is coming in to my massive PM box in the last week+!.

Thank you..

-Jeff..

Comment #138

What would you recommend as the best way to get definite answers to these questions?..

Comment #139

^ First, frankly, for all to acknowledge that they (these growing questions and concerns regarding mTLD and the .mobi extension) EXIST ... and that the good folks raising them (including myself and dozens - on both sides of the fence - to me privately) have a voice and will not be minimized or detracted!.

Thank you..

-Jeff..

Comment #140

Ok but..

What would you recommend as the best way to get definite answers to these questions?..

Comment #141

Jeff, you're so ridiculous. Check the whois yourself and contact them if you want to know. You remind me of some 800 pound fat guy stuck in his bed yelling for someone to bring him food. Enjoy your time sitting around the threads beating your anti mobi war drum again and again and again and again and again .....

But If your unrelenting assault on .mobi is having any negative effect on current .mobi aftermarket and/or auction pricing my wallet thanks you, just means I can get better names for less...

Comment #142

Paul, we're all now keenly aware that your common public counter to the questions and concerns mTLD and "dot Mobey" (and the simple fact that "sales prices" at this most recent Traffic event are off 80% - 85%+) and to once again attempt to prop up the aftermarket is to call them "bargains" and an "opportunity to buy" etc. at these depressed levels, but I really don't see this stunt being widely believed by most who are seeking these critical answers, to be honest. I think most today believe - even if these tough questions are one day addressed - that prices could still DROP much, much farther in the months and years ahead; because there really isn't any substance to the whole thing, and it's SEVERE lack of corporate adoption, it's obvious branding difficulties, and the fact that promises have been made - and broken! Besides, shouldn't you better be spending your time developing what you already own?.

The question here remains in regard to the Traffic 6-month DEVELOPMENT MANDATE and - again - it's lack of enforcement!.

Thank you, friend..

-Jeff..

Comment #143

I think it is quite possible. When markets drop a lot I think there is always a group of people who feel they are "bargain hunting", that is the case whether the asset is fundamantally sound or not I think. 75% off the prices from last year sounds good. They are either getting good deals or propping up a market that will stagnate or fall further. Personally I don't see any solid foundations with .mobi so I tend to see things on the the latter side...

Comment #144

Just couldn't resist trying to telling me how to spend my time could you. Couldn't you better spend your time getting answers to your own questions?..

Comment #145

^ That's exactly right, Rep.+ Snoop ... there is nothing that has been substantiated that gives any indication that even the most "premium" / generic of these domains are worth what they'd be in any other awkward extension, Mid $Xxx - (rare) Low $X,xxx+/- for their generic or "keyword" reselling potential, IMHO. They could ... as things are going and prospects look for the future ... even reach absolute $0.00; so the concept of dumping even more money (good money after bad), even at the common stunt "bargain prices", in to something that is both fundamentally and technically flawed (and obsolete) makes very little sense - other than for the purpose to buoy short-term prices, and continue the hype and false hopes! Meanwhile, the questions persist!.

-Jeff..

Comment #146

Personally I don't see these going to zero, I view it as an extension similar to .info or .us, really a domainers extension, there is always someone willing to take a bet. It is the kind of extension that people will dump during a bust (because these domains have almost no revenue source outside this industry) and is unlikely to have a second coming when the market rises (fool me once...). I agree with the obsolete comment, mltd will have to scrap the compliance requirements in the not to distant future I think with the trend towards full page rendering on mobile devices...

Comment #147

BTW Jeff, my post is about my own personal evaluations and decisions. I offer my opinion and share my own activites yet you accuse me of trying to pull a stunt, propping up the aftermarket, hyping the extension and creating false hopes. If I think something is a bargain for me then I buy it. What is so hard about this for you to grasp and why do you choose to slander me as a result?.

I don't go around telling people what to buy. I've said it before and I'll say it again, if you or anyone else is not into .mobi then don't buy it. I really don't care what you buy, it's none of my business. Yet you try and make it your business what I buy. And just because I do you accuse me of hype, subterfuge, and even have gone so far as to suggest criminal activity of being involved in a pyramid scheme. Truly slanderous stuff for why? Because I buy and sell domains that end in mobi?.

We are all keenly aware of your unrelenting assault on the .mobi extension and mTLD. It's been your crusade since it launched. Why you desperately want it to fail is beyond my understanding but your motives are not my concern. What is my concern is when you knowingly and purposely distort the realities of the .mobi space and slander those who are involved in it.

You decry the RFP has been completely abandoned when you know it is the method of choice that will be used in the release of .mobi single character domains assuming ICANN approves their release. Why do you NEVER acknowledge this?.

You talk only of the fact that mtld has auctioned off some of their premium domains for money, calling them greedy while you know all that they are doing to support their community with free or low cost resources for development such as dev.mobi, Ready.mobi, Site.mobi and Device Atlas. Why do you NEVER acknowledge this?.

You prop up silly demands like what Premium generic names that have been auctioned via Moniker and Sedo have ended up in corporate end user hands and developed? Guess what, I don't know, but there are in fact Premium names that have been released either via RFP or auction that are developed but you refuse to recognize them. Weather.mobi, Ringtones.mobi, Camera.mobi and GPS.mobi are a few that quickly come to mind.

You state there is a serious lack of corporate adoption while you know darn well that there are lots of examples of existing businesses that provide mobile content if you visit their .mobi. Why do you distort the truth about this?.

You state your opinions as fact, calling .mobi awkward, obsolete and technically flawed. You're entitled to your opinion, but when someone disagrees with you then they are accused of hype.

Now you go so far as to claim that premium .mobi domains will be valued at zero in the future. Good grief Jeff, do you hear yourself? We continue to see companies rolling out their .mobi websites.mobi domains are being developed and monetized. The mobile web is growing each day and .mobi is establishing itself in that space. We all get that you hate .mobi, but you've become totally irrational, ignoring the whole picture and fixating on whatever you can grab hold of to discredit mtld, .mobi and those who have an interest in it.

Yes Jeff, I am aware of the fact that many of the Premium domains that have development requirements have not been adequately developed in the time alloted. Do I think it is a serious problem for the future of .mobi that those names are not developed? Not entirely. Would I prefer they are developed? Of course. Duh. How will this violation of the development requirements be addressed by mTLD? I don't know, I don't work for them. Does it impact my decision to buy .mobi domains? Not at all.

And yes Jeff, I am aware that the coding requirements have not been specifically enforced to date. Frankly I'm glad because the original system was not well thought out and mTLD has demonstrated wisdom IMO in not implementing it. I look forward to a revised system but in the mean time I am encouraged to see the vast majority of sites are indeed friendly to small screened devices. It's because businesses and individuals are using .mobi for their mobile activities. That is what it is for after all.

Yea, I know, we all know, your questions persist... no duh ... blah blah blah......

Comment #148

Paul, thanks for the post ... I greatly appreciate the fact that in this post you didn't simply once again single-line ridicule and malign me and my opinions, but rather shared your thoughts in a professional, and more constructive, maner IMHO.

Although you've misrepresented or taken out of context some of my earlier or ongoing OPINIONS and core questions and concerns for both mTLD and the "dot Mobey", such as the "sales" of generic terms at Traffic (the subject here in this thread!), the development mandates and it's firm, accepted deadline, the RFP process as it relates to generic terms, and lack of corporate adoptions of same, as well as the branding issue (to name a few) ... but at least you've acknowledged the FACTS that "development requirements have not been adequately developed in the time alloted" and that "the coding requirements have not been specifically enforced to date", and I believe also an admission that mTLD is sort of winging this thing as they go along ... "I look forward to a revised system ... ", which IMHO shouldn't even be a consideration (attempting to change the rules and agreements as they go along)!.

This is an ACCOUNTABILITY and CREDIBILITY issue with mTLD!.

Again, thanks for more constructive post ... and once again, please: Let's get this nagging and very troubling question addressed (regarding the VERY PUBLIC mandated development requirements and their timely enforcement!).

Good day for now,.

-Jeff..

Comment #149

If only you could reciprocate by stopping your slander of other members who have done nothing but purchase domains of their liking with their own money. It has been completely unprofessional of you to accuse members of hype, subterfuge and even the crime of being involved in a pyramid scheme simply for being involved in .mobi. It is something I would like a public apology from you for but I doubt I will ever see since you never acknowledge your own distortions and wrongdoing. Exactly how have I misrepresented you or taken you out of context? You continue to deceive people and distort the truth by not acknowledging publicly the full range of things happening in the .mobi space. My comments are spot on.

And also since the domainer community has answered all your questions to the best of their ability, you continue to smear .mobi with your silly misspelling even though you made this promise on 6/2 Obviously you had no intention of changing your ways, the members here have answered your question to the best of their ability and yet your word is no good. No doubt you have some lame excuse for this, some technicality you will hide behind. Jeff, I've never denied any facts, just highlighted your ongoing fixation on a few things while you never acknowledge the full picture. When will you acknowledge the full picture? When will you stop claiming the RFP is dead when the HIGHLY VALUABLE single character domains are in the works to be released via RFP. Is not a single character HostGator generic? It seems to me it doesn't get more generic then that. When will you acknowledge all the work mTLD is doing to provide exceptional tools to their community for free or modest cost in the form of Dev.mobi, Ready.mobi, Site.mobi and Device Atlas? When are you going to recognize the Premium names that have been released via RFP or auction that are in fact developed? When are you going to recognize that corporations are in fact using AND promoting their .mobi domains to deliver mobile content? I was curious how you were going to attempt to twist my words, I never said they were "winging it".

Such an obvious concept but you will try and discredit mTLD because they have been wise to recognize a dilemma in the system and are working to rectify it. The laws of our land are changed all the time, it MUST be a consideration because realities change, problems are found, and the rules need to adapt. That's a normal state of affairs. In my honest opinion Jeff the greater accountability and credibility issue is with you. You continue to unrelentingly smear .mobi, mTLD and .mobi enthusiasts while rarely if ever acknowledging all the positive things that are going on in the .mobi space.

And sadly when your distortions are answered it is the responder who is blamed for derailing a thread. When privilege goes unchecked that is what happens. Emmeritus = Immunity. I rest my case for now.....

Comment #150

Mjnels.....I believe he was givin the contact info over a year ago to get some answers to his questions.

Still........the budgie squawks...

Comment #151

^ Unnecessary, but sadly an all too familar, dicounting and diversionary strategy!.

Paul, I've continually brought up FACTS regarding the current state of affairs ".mobi" and mTLD, and shared my opinions regarding those facts and their perceptions ... now, but thankfully not again ridiculing me with single-line jokes and juvenile cartoon pictures, you're again attempting to turn the obivious credibility and accoutability issue as they relate to mTLD and the mandated 6-month development requirements into yet another discounting and discredit toward me and my opininions!.

Hype and spam of non stand-alone, non-compliant corporate (defensive ) "sites" are continually being posted in multiple threads here as "newsworthy", this is HYPE. Only one individual even addressing just one of my (and others) myriad of questions and concerns, but bypassing on the other questions ... and then personally attacking me, and asking me questions totally unrelated to the thread topic is SUBTERFUGE. We have seen this time, and time again! I have received one very heartfelt apology publicly, and one also via PM (thank you, friend!) ... until that time that someone can point me to where I have not posted something factual, or a reasonable contextual basis therein in the sharing of my opinion(s) ... I owe no apologies, as I don't - and won't - personally attack folks or ridicule their opinions, or post immature cartoons or engage in name-calling!.

You do distort the FACTS when you state that corporations are in fact "using and promoting their .mobi domains", because the CONTEXT was, and has been (as you well know!), the generic terms from Traffic (our thread topic here, Paul) - again, ZERO of these auctioned domains have been acquired by corporate End users and developed or promoted accordingly. You again slant the context of the RFP process that we've been discussing ... knowing full well - and other proponents freely admit this - that they did cancel and abandon the first complete set of generics - and I've never addressed the potential, but I have my humble reservations, for these "single character" domains (whether you want to refer to them as truly they are, or as "generics"). It is, of course, REASONABLE to bring up the FACT that mTLD has either changed, altered, and/or ommitted things along the way ... such as the RFP process and the lack of enforcement mandates (to name two).

We're obviously going to disagree, and that's fine ... the important point here is that the generic domains that have been auctioned and "sold at Traffic are not developed now more than 2 - 3 months beyond their prmised mandate and they are not being enforced per the agreement! This is a HUGE accountability and credibility issue for mTLD and those, such as yourself, closest with defending it and the ".mobi" extension!.

These are the FACTS.

Thank you for understanding, and for respecting my opinions! Okie, take care for now Paul.

-Jeff..

Back on topic here....

Has anyone been paid for a Traffic Orlando HostGator sale yet?.

I had 2 sales, and both domains transferred out, but no notification from them yet...

Comment #153

Had 3 sales at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Orlando but not paid on them yet. I suspect it will likely be a couple more weeks. I sold a few at CAC in Amsterdam two months ago and still haven't been paid on one. I do stay in close communication with Moniker/Domain Systems and feel they are doing what they can to complete these sales...

Comment #154

Any Updates abt when the payments will be sent out? I had one sale, HostGator transferred and still waiting to hear from them...

Comment #155

Update: I contacted my moniker rep and had my payment about an hour later!..
