I followed a few logo making contests on NP some time back. And there was a live contest for a Lodge logo and what I found was that the name was still available. Immediately that sight ran like a thunderbolt down my spine. Goooo get it. Wait... Something within stopped my hand and some supernatural powers pulled back my fingers from the touchpad. Me- Why would someone run a paid Logo making contest and didn't register .COM for his business? Second Me- May be it's a small Lodge somewhere in outskirts and may only need a road side Logo.. Me- Should I register the .COM Second Me- What would you do with specific name of a small Lodge if the business owner don't need a website. Me- Can I sell it somewhere else in that case? Second Me- Kidding? And I left it for the unseen powers to decide my fate. I kept coming back for 2 days and the name was still available. Curious.. Third day... THE NAME WAS REGISTERED. NOOOOOOOOOOOOO. And the logo contest got over. A winner was declared. The selected logo was displayed full page stating COMING SOON... on the .COM page the very next day. I Missed an opportunity. I though so... Now a few months later, I think if that was ethical or not. I didn't get an earning opportunity there, but if did; would it have been ethical to grab someone's name who you know will pay you or change his business name and logo but won't have any other option. I mean registering a domain before finalizing a business name and logo is a wise step, but if someone missed on that, is it really a decent business practice to get him under your tent on your conditions. I don't know... Why I penned it down today. Don't know how, out of curiosity I went to the same page and now the website and the Lodge is functional. Beautiful pictures, a great lodge, green surroundings, a good website... and a HAPPY OWNER. May God be with everyone.
