In your domaining journey so far, what has been the biggest help that you have received from anyone so far, that has impacted your journey?
For me, it has been a free pass to a domaining conference by the conference organizers, which undoubtedly was a life-changing event for me. At the conference, I met some of the prominent domain name investors and became a part of some of the good and successful domaining groups which helped me plan my domaining journey better.

Some people pointed out to me there's an 'ignore user' function which has been liberating.

I would advise newbies to make use of this forum functionality and block a certain someone to avoid wasting your time. Instead, follow people like @twiki .

Do some research. Read a lot. There are plenty of kind hearted people willing to let you in on some of their hard earned knowledge. Many won't mind you picking their brain as long as you're courteous and treat them with respect.

Engage with your 'adversaries'. From an investment pov. Don't let yourself suffer from tunnel vision as there's a whole world of opportunity out there if you pick the right 'mentors'.

That's quite abstract. Pun intended. What conference, and who was attending that impacted your journey?

This holds true for here but also other places too- the best help I have gotten from others besides all the basics is on the speculating on words in the future tech space. Hitting a trend early and fast has been sometimes due to shared info by others.
I think this is good. Imagining that info in context of the meta keyword or VR keyword, 10 good names and you are sorted.
