    Thanks Rich! Always glad to help and motivate.

    There's no denying your and @Reddstagg 's passion. I'm sure you'll both have some great results to show for it before all is said and done.

    I am a new domainer and I agree with your thoughts for the most part. I know most of you seasoned domainers have got it right, but I also think a little baptism of fire for the newbies is good. Losing money certainly makes people think hard. But I also think that you can't really get it 100% in domaining. In addition to the online learning material available, I think one has to pass through highs and lows to develop that innate instinct for good domain names

    DoughNut,

    If you're going to disrespect someone at least get their name write. REDDSTAGG...2 D's and 2 G's.

    However, by constantly disrespecting me you are also disrespecting other domainers due to the fact that I have, in addition to my many hand registrations diversified and started buying domains from our peers here at Namepros. I've also had some domainers reach out to me who have seen my portfolio too and they don't think that they are all bad, so in direct contradiction to your own perception.

    I wonder now if they too are sick and tired of your whining. OK, I admit...you're better than me. You win. Move on. Nothing to see here.

    It is getting tiresome now.

    Regards,

    Reddstagg

    Zoox is the name of a company. If they want, they can take it from you. This is like owning, e-walmart.com

    I'm a member of a facebook group that buys/sells domain names and it always pains me to see people drop a few hundred bucks on hand reg'd names at $10 each that will more likely than not never sell.

    All you can do is encourage best practices and preach "Quality over quantity" but at the end of the day it's their money after-all and they're going to spend it how they want, even if that means registering 100 mediocre domains with domain extensions you've never heard of :(

    Just try to steer newbies on the right path.

    Tips like:
    - When starting out, stick just to .COM .NET and .ORG (but mostly just .COM)
    - Quality over quantity, don't be afraid to invest $50 to $100 on the secondary market if it's a great name
    - Get a few 'blue chip" domains such as 4L .com's or single dictionary words
    - Research past sales to see what domains REALLY go for, not just what they're LISTED for.
    - Follow industry news, see what other's are doing. Learn from other's failures and successes.
