    Yeah the great auctions make NO sense, I had terrible names accepted for crypto like cryptocoincourses but cryptonewsletters.com or cryptotrading.es weren't

    Sedo is a great platform but a lack of mistakes
    They don't try to expand on USA for example , they don't promote as should be many extensions ( only .com ) is like they don't want money from fee
    About Great domain auction period of review is to high + they accept only what they want .
    I think they send newsletter to different customers with submissions and see what response get & only after accept the names
    So i submit Davenport.us ( not fit ) and after i submit Eat , Grill & inspire all .us i mean take few days and not received a answer so i deleted the names & put again as simple listing
    By the way For.us is on "Featured domains" at 50k but but when i apply for this section with Eat.us was not accepted - really ? they are both very close as search/month , appraisal & previous sales
    Honest i don't think try to apply on this type of sections or great domain auction
    But still think @Sedo is a great marketplace

    @Dot.us I'm not a big fan of Sedo's auctions, but in the case of 'for us' vs 'eat us'- it's quite obvious why it was rejected. The extension 'us' is looked at as a word. 'For us' is a meaningful and common term that can be used for many things. 'Eat us' sounds like something people who'd like to die would say to cannibals. :)

    Sorry but not agree with you because i do it also with inspire.us ( it's is meaningful for you? ) & other that you call it "meaningful and common term" here is not only about this is about also the value of domain name

    SEDO could had much more bigger market, however they do nothing,

    Also, their still lack of innovation,

    As the oldest domain market, they do nothing to lead the market in the history, just enjoyed the bonus after the other platforms expand the market cake

    @Dot.us I don't invest in the .us extension. Inspire.us is great, IMO. It's a much better example than eat.us.

    @Dot.us I agree that Sedo rejecting inspire.us wasn't smart because 'inspire us' is a great term. eat.us and grill.us are different because 'eat us' and 'grill us' aren't terms that make sense. 'For us' was clearly listed because of the hack of the keyword + the extension and not just the keyword. That's all I'm saying. That's why inspire.us is a much better example. Sedo isn't a good venue for sellers to auction their names anyway, IMO.

    "hack of the keyword" is just a type of domains this doesn't mean that Eat or Grill they are not great names or very good names ..Relate.us , Wait.us or Lie.us how sound to you ? Hack or very good names they deserve to be on section " featured domains" or " great domain auction ?

    Doesnt Sedo do “great auction” monthly?

    Surprise! Not many know about it.

    Sedo continues to deny its U.S base sans NC

    One of the problem with marketplaces is advertising on social media only Dan.com do something in this way
    Sedo don't have persons to manage this ( i guess other don't ) they make millions / year but do nothing in this way

    @Dot.us As I said, I don't invest in .us so I'm definitely not an expert. 'Eat', 'Grill', 'Relate, 'Wait', 'Lie' are all good or great words. I was just referring to your comparison with 'for.us'. In that context, Inspire.us is the best comprable example that proves your point. The rest aren't hacks so they're different. I don't know what Sedo's criteria is but perhaps they were only looking for hacks when it comes to the .us extension.

    like and agree;
    but they long released “sales reports” builds goodwill long before cool, where many hide.

    Now that Godaddy releases monthly report (replace Uni’s with regular monthly reporting more pressure for Sedo change innovate.

    Eat.us is great for food order brand, especially in these times. JustEat is a brand, why Eat (us based).

    Sedo's auction rejections/selections baffle most. 😂
