Labeled as .tv in Domain Selling and Domain Sales, started by garptrader, May 27, 2014
Tablet.tv sold at SEDO for US$13,000
-congrats to the seller
That's a nice sale.
Tablets must be a big deal in tuvalu!
Maybe there are, just like they are in most other countries all around the world...
If the only individuals buying a TLD are speculators then yes one should be cautious - the reason why I have not yet purchased even one new TLD domain. But if end users are buying aftermarket domains in a TLD and branding on them it is time to wake up. That could also potentially be applied to .CO which has surprised some domainers. I don't hold any .CO but perhaps I should consider acquiring a few if the right keyword/price opportunity presents itself.
as we wrote, Verisign would not take the tld to promote it as tuvalu cctld but for generic videocentric purposes
The brand of .tv is so strong that most of people think .tv was actually created for television related sites
As more individuals and entities learn that .tv was conceived for, and is the official ccTLD for Tuvalu, then that will change. Also, I wouldn't be surprised if some smart gTLD applicant applied for a gTLD specifically for television-based use. The migration from .tv to the new television gTLD could be fast, for sure.
Enjoy the current perversion of the .tv ccTLD while you can, because it's probably temporary.
At this point we al know where the extension is from and some of us understand .tv sites can be set to 'global' via webmaster tools so continued trolling seems like wasted energy?
Is heynow trolling the .co and .me threads or are we just special ?
If Joe Public see's a .tv site and gets video content or some form of streaming i doubt they really care about the extensions location or true meaning, you see, even without trolls the world keeps spinning, funny that
One nice feature of the new board - it has an ignore feature that doesn't even show the ignored posts with the usual 'post ignored' display. The only way you know a certain troll is trolling is by other people responding to their posts.
"Joe Public" is a poor example.
"Joe Public" aint Major League Baseball, or NBC, or any other major entity that uses .tv for "television." Those major entities is what makes the phenomenon so interesting. Joe Public doesn't give a crap about it - it's cute, it works, it's easy to remember, etc.
Joe public is the one who uses the internet on mass, sadly getalife.tv is taken, i was going to recommend a registrar
leave you with it, life is too short
You have your opinion and is respectable, it can also be right. But if you post the same thing in all the threads you're trolling.
Simple that. Maybe .tv is only Tuvalu and you're right, but what's the point in writing it in every post?
Well, you are not respecting his opinion at all.
Yes, they may know that, but it doesn't matter at all, since millions of internet users do not know or have accepted the .tv as television.
And what it can be? .tv is the shortest alternative. I don't know if .video exists.
Temporary or not it will last very long.
While a couple of participants here label me a troll, and they read into my posts for hidden meanings, I just thought I'd remind all of you that my original post for the sale of table.tv was enthusiastic for the sale, and positive for the buyer. I stated "No wasted money there ...," and " What a great addition to a domain collection for $13,000.00."
So obviously a couple of mind-readers here read into my post for hidden meaning other than the written word. I even added, "Makes sense here!"
So before I am again lambasted and referred to as a "troll," I'd like to see the credentials of the mind readers here who think they know about the hidden truths to my posts. How arrogant of them.
I appreciate your posts and wouldn't call you a troll - or even a complete and utter idiot for that matter. I certainly wouldn't call you annoying or complete fucktard either.
I too would also like to know the large number of .TV investors that think you are an annoying troll but unfortunately many of them won't post their true feelings towards you.
i miss jeff …… he was the original so and so
Must say ..impressed with the "marketing"..
