Thanks for the excellent detailed answer to the OP question, @Michael. Is there a location where Namebio show which sources are automatically part of Namebio database? I take it that Undeveloped and Efty sales are only reported if the seller reports them individually with documentation? Whereas are all Sedo and GD sales above the $100 limit reported? I'm not asking for a long individual answer, just a link to a site that lists the sources, if one exists.There are many reasons we don't track NamePros auctions:
A forum marketplace is unstructured, thus it is very difficult to scrape. People masking domains in a variety of creative ways. People writing bids like "a grand" or "one hundo" would be fun to deal with. Bids getting cancelled and prices rolled back, or users correcting their bids in subsequent posts. Portfolio auctions getting bids independently or as a lot. People saying "Sold at BIN" but it might be hard to extract the BIN from the original post. Weird end time rules like "912 minutes after the last bid" making it difficult to know when it is actually over. Stuff like that. It's hard for a bot to be accurate without structure...
Thank you, and thank you for providing such an awesome tool, that is even better now that statistics is included! We are indeed fortunate that you provide this wonderful resource to the community.
