    If he puts random people to CC, and not to BCC, i highly doubt now his stories of decades of super duper businesses are any kind of true.

    I somehow made it on the list of IncredbileBreasts.com :xf.laugh::xf.laugh:

    Seems like he was getting bouncebacks and has figured out my address.

    All KIDDING aside...

    It does not bother me, I find him amusing and believe it or not I still hope he sells a few. If persistence counts then he might just make a sale. If you cannot do it with great domains then you have to do it with numbers. Two things here.... he either goes broke or he makes a few sales. Going broke is not something I wish on anybody so hopefully he gets a couple of sales.

    That said his choice of a business name DOMAIN GOURMET is actually quite good. I don't know if he has the .com but if I had to rate the name as a domaining site I would score that one almost a perfect 10.

    You cannot argue that... the name is fantastic. :xf.cool:

    No, sorry, I think its a stupid name. His domaining skills are terrible, he has yet to make one sale. If he was an investor in liquid domains and had a track record, then DOMAIN GOURMET might be good. But he is still just patting himself on the back for nothing other than his ego. Besides if it was a great name, someone else would have taken in it the past 35 years. He has also had it for 10 days and done nothing with it, like all of his other "incredible" domains.

    I would never wish anyone to fail. Still hope he gets it together and make a couple of sales that would at least cover his renewals.

    The thing that baffles me the most is that he doesn't do anything to promote his domains. Some of his domains has already expired so that's at least one year of regging domains yet not a single effort to promote them apart from at NP.

    Even this new marketplace name of his, he could have used 5 minutes of his time and created an Efty site for his names but he still wouldn't. FFS.

    Again, I really hope he gets his sh*t together.

    In his email he says he is going to launch his domaining site on it. I checked and he owns the .com.

    @NYJimbo if I needed a domaining website and someone offered me DomainGourmet.com I would buy it hands down. I'm not endorsing his tactics but the quality of that name cannot be argued. I can just see the theme and everything I would launch it under.

    Personally, I will stand behind my comment that DomainGourmet.com is fantastic.

    And I would disagree with you. :-P

    Look, I know it sounds like a good domain. But in practical use its nothing special. Its been flipped countless times and then went dead for almost a decade. So, meh.....

    You are correct in what you say so let me correct my statement.

    PROPERLY DEVELOPED DomainGourmet.com is a fantastic concept for a domaining site.

    There is only one problem I can see with that domain name and that is that I did not think of it first.
    Man I could think of a hundred different ways to develop that into a domaining blog or domaining website.

    Imagine a bowl full of domain names with some spilling over. Imagine a gourmet meal vs a so so meal. What makes a good domain and what makes a bad one. Everyone calls themselves a chef but few truly are.

    The concept is one that I personally love... set it up like a menu etc etc.
    Absolutely endless possibilities.

    I have to stop here because people will think I'm endorsing someone, which I am truly not. But I am big enough to admit when someone has a great concept.

    I don't pay a lot for two word domains because I buy them wholesale but if @Bulloney wants his first real sale I will offer him $250 USD via paypal for that domain.

    Mind you.... he is not the originator though :xf.grin:
    It has just never been properly developed and the previous owners probably did not have the vision to develop it.

    Just came to say I'm a hobbyist. (And I think I was able to spell connoisseurs correctly.) I'm not a huge candy corn fan, but I know a lot of folks who are.

    Cheers!

    I love candy corn. I dont love that weird Autumn Corn or whatever they call it with the chocolate flavor.
    Regardless, "connoisseurs" is not going to help this domain sell. :-P

    Nice, but can he contact you? He is still banned or temp-banned and guests do not see signatures.

    I don't buy 3 words and not the same effect.

    Understand I have my domaining site, I was making a point that I would give him his first real sale because I believe I could market the domain.

    Oh, trust me, he knows how to contact anyone he wants to. Besides, that is why it's good to have a totally unique domain name for business., type it into google and there you are.

    I was being a bit tongue-in-cheek, but only because no one's going to develop a domain blog today that will rake in the cash... So if one likes the concept, they can alter the name a bit and away you go. The content makes the brand for this kind of site... not the shortness of the name.

    Gourmet is an adjective so its better on the front

    DomainGourmet - the words are the wrong way around
    GourmetDomain.com or GourmetDomains.com - Much better names and make more sense

    I wouldn't buy either though

    :xf.smile: My 2 cents

    It actually works both ways...

    DomainGourmet - a person who is a gourmet, specifically of domains
    GourmetDomains - Domains that are of gourmet quality

    I prefer the first, but I agree... wouldn't spend for either.

    The word "gourmet" as you refer to it is mainly used in culinary/food industry (gourmet chef etc) but I guess you can do whatever you want in domaining if you really want.

    my revision-al take on this:

    Originator defined: a person who creates or initiates something.

    Domain
    defined: an exclusive address of your website through which....


    Domain Originator
    defined: No Definition....sad:xf.sick:

    For the record, this is vacation/temp ban #5. It usually lasts about a month. He usually comes back, takes it slow at the beginning, then back to the usual stuff that gets him breaks. He can still read threads like this one. I'm not sure why he is spending his time emailing folks and still buying new domains. I think he really should take this time and do what I touched on earlier. Again, after a year, he still hasn't uploaded his domains to marketplaces like Sedo, Afternic, GoDaddy etc. He still has sales killing landing pages where people have to pay somebody $40 just to contact him. He should be figuring out what kind of landing page he wants. He's just not setup to sell anything if someone somehow manages to land on one of his domains. That should be priority #1 right now.

    No problem, Verisign decided what we should be called in their blog post today. We are simply scalpers who add nothing to the business world. No sense discussing whether we are domain investors, domain originators, domainers, domain experts, domain help agents, domain servants, domain artists, domain consultants.....we are all just scalpers, it would appear.

    I, too, can also conceptualize WAY faster than 8 billion people could ever implement -

    BUT I wud not call myself Conceptualizer or Domain Name Conceptualizer, etc.

    Domain Investor is a moniker I like...

    But domains must first be legitimatized as an asset class

    so U can buy them in your IRA or 401K or ETF or Mutual Fund, etc.

    One step in that direction seems to be something like Forever Registration -

    Does Epik have a monopoly on that ?

    I'm a domainer and love the industry. You can define yours in another way.

    I owe you a big thank you MapleDots...what i've discovered is that very few domainers have the vision to develop their own domains:xf.frown: While developing DomainGourmet™ i'm also in the process of re-branding myself as That Name Guy™. I've learned there's a lot more to this business than just "domains". This forum is called NamePros not DomainPros, thus to go with DomainGourmet™ I looked into buying NameGourmet, but sadly it was taken. However, I was able to hand register a name that's just as good:xf.wink:You wouldn't believe the plethora of all sorts of "names" for all sorts of things; boats, pets, nicknames, nameplates/tags, streets, etc.

    Will you or anyone following this thread be in Vegas next month at NamesCon not DomainsCon? I'll probably be the guy having the most fun:xf.grin: Ho! Ho! Ho! and God Bless!
