    Oh, ok..nice! I bet it gave you a nice ROI back then ;)

    Btw, I can see why Elequa is upset about dropping Music.TV. It's a really domain with a lot of potential if developed properly using something more professional than Wordpress or Joomla ;)

    Yes Mark gave it a go, I think it is just very expensive to develop a music site if you are having real music and videos, the licensing fees are off the chart.

    Mark did not have original content on Pop.TV people uploaded Madonna for example.

    I could see this used for new original music without the licensing fees, there is a audio site based on this idea, name escapes but it is popular

    Yeah you have to
    Look you are right you have to keep trying, I have sat down a few times with people on MusicNews.tv not in the class of Music.tv but not trash either and look I had never expected Music.tv to ever be available. FMA does not sell, this family battle was unable to be seen, so I liked the fact that Music would be in his vault for years and then a name like GenreMusic.tv or MusicNews.tv would not have to worry about the 800 pound Gorilla.

    You have to keep trying, I know Frank Schilling says and is now trademarking "The right domain can change your life"

    I believe in 2014 it is "The right website or app idea can change your life"

    $50 OMG! :)

    Congrats to James!

    I have a bit offtop question to all who knows regarding repricing. For example if there was one non-premium .tv name that is dropping (but the name is good), could it be repriced now or it would be normal renewal fee. For example forex dot tv wasn't repriced. But could it be?

    This has been the case for many years and will continue for many more to come. Grow one idea/domain, instead of trying to gather hundreds of domains, or distractions IMO.

    In the case of music.tv, it doesn't get much better. Well done Jimbo!

    This was at a time pre Verisign when Igal and FMA put up a lot of money that one person put it to me years ago as, "they helped save the Dot Tv company" So they spent big money and as a condition of the spend their renewals were non premium.

    Secondly people get special pricing in all industries including domaining, you don't think someone with a huge portfolio is paying the same as someone with 50 ? Business is about cutting deals and when you have the juice you can get the deals.

    So they're basically business partners or were, prior to verisign taking over. I guess that's a different story.

    Another positive, truthful post deleted. Any post which includes the truthful reminder that .tv stands for Tuvalu is not tolerated. This post may be left untouched to prove me wrong, but my previous post congratulating the buyer of music-dot-tuvalu was deleted. And indeed, it was a positive, congratulatory post.

    Many here have blinders on, or don't want the truth to propagate, or both.

    Do you have all your 947 posted messages, criticizing the .tv extension?
    I hope you did better.

    HeyNow

    I see you wrote the following:

    "my previous post congratulating the buyer of music-dot-tuvalu was deleted"

    as though this were some kind of rude act by the moderators instead of the obvious removal of trolling everyone else sees it for.


    They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing and I feel you may be in the 007 category by now.

    You continually suggest you are merely seeking 'facts' and 'truthful reminders'. Well, may I add a few constants I know to be true:

    1. I am the owner of music.tv and I know exactly what it stands for - and I can categorically assure you that it is not music.tuvalu

    2. The government of Tuvalu, headed by the monarch of my own country, Queen Elizabeth II, also know what .tv stands for. That is why they have a long-running deal with Verisign for it to be marketed to the world as the televisual extension.

    3. I cannot make assumptions about other lands but I know that if you show .tv to almost everyone on the continent on which I live - they will always think 'television' and never 'tuvalu'. It is for that reason, and that reason alone, that so many major broadcasters and film producers in the world use .tv to show their work on the internet.

    4. To congratulate someone is to actually wish them the best - not come along and try and piss on their cake and talk trash.


    If you ever wish to travel to Tuvalu to find out the truth for yourself I would suggest you use the official Tuvalu government visitor website … a real life Tuvalu orientated website - oh, and a dot-com going by the name of http://www.timelesstuvalu.com - perhaps they don't know that they should be using .tv or even worse, that .com actually means .commercial


    In the meantime I hope you don't get too upset if I see what you are doing as offensive and suggest that you take a good hard look at the obviously more important issues in your life than whether .tv means television, tuvalu or trolling.

    To all the others here, my apologies.

    I have spoken to Eric about this and warning points are going to start getting handed out until we reach 20 and then a ban.

    Everyone here knows what .TV stands for, oh as an Fyi I spoke to someone from Major League Baseball in 2009, we discussed it being a country code and were they aware and they confirmed to me they were.

    There is a stickied post here for new investors that states what .tv is. You have come to the wrong place to troll, you must be bored as you have been a member here for awhile. But I have been dealing with this nonsense since I created this sub forum and this forum started the conversation online about .tv.

    So endless trolling comments in each post will result in warnings that lead to a ban, its out in the open so everyone here can read and no one can say no transparency, etc...

    If you would like to start a post HeyNow why you don't like .tv go right ahead that's fine.

    Regarding .TV as an extension, .TV does not make sense with just any keyword and selling domains in general can be difficult but I am seeing many companies using keywordkeyword.TV or keywordTV.com or keywordTV.cctld so there are end users. Today I had inquiries on four .TV domains to follow up on.

    Is that a fact? As if to say everyone knows what .co stands for...

    Heynow has a valid point, although it's presented in a poor manner. Worth addressing as newbies are always lurking.

    Yes Keith, and there is a stickied thread for newbies, trolling each thread will not be tolerated. Eric and the members here have made it quite clear as reported posts will be deleted and warning points issued, per Eric.

    Well it's my duty to say, Eric and "members" have it wrong. "Trolling" could very well be a learning technique. Assuming all members and browsers know what .tv stands for is ridiculous.
