    Using a "word" a lot means I am a "word" guy!? What is the logic behind it?

    Personal views without objectivity and fact support are worthless for discussions.

    Paying 5 figures to buy a domain is not serious? Sorry, in my view the buyer is serious because there are not many 5-figure sales in the domain market, even for .com domains. Also, some sold .xyz domains have been developed websites for business, which are serious end users.

    Most people don't grasp that asking a specific doubts-related question unlocks learning and validation… all that goes into teaching. Ppl should take a bigger picture than just stick to the legit question asking for clarification .

    (fyi , OP is a Hard-working, experienced salesperson (& more than just domain investor) with a positive attitude, running a multimillion business…)

    If the OP is really hardworking, experienced salesperson, They wouldn't mention someone else's name on the title. He is not even ready to take the challenge.
    Even, NP mods didn't respond about removing my name in the title. This is a very unfair attitude. @Echo Mod Team

    Coming to @alcy, He is always wanted to blame me and my sales. He doesn't have any other work rather than how .xyz is doing, ROI. blah blah? IF we dont have sales how come we calculate ROI.
    If we buy 20K .onl or .vip or .icu, Can we sell them like this? Please dont show attitude. A fact is always a fact despite how many times we wanted to hide.

    @DNGear - please keep reporting your sales, I for one am glad to read about them and truly wish you continued success.

    The better you do the more buzz you create, I would not worry about your name in the title, it just means you are creating the buzz.

    When it comes to domaining there is only one thing that matters and that is the zeros after the first dollar earned.

    So just keep doing what you're doing and let your sales do the talking, keep reporting them and the critics will eventually fade away.

    The idea of challenge is something that we should be able to keep it in our (inner circle) business account as a extra fuel . Otherwise it’s a very waste of time and energy.

    Submit request / report via Contact NamePros Support . Tagging mods isn’t the fastest way to get response.

    btw. Instead of defending your business/es , just let us know if there’s anything we can do to help you or support your business.

    Keep on doing what you are Doing @DNGear
    You don't need to prove anything or defend anything.

    You are an inspiration to many.

    When people are jealous of you and start doubting you, it just means you are doing something right.
    More power to you.


    There is nothing but awe and respect for you amongst most of the domain investors.

    This sounded like a totally illogical statement to me,

    Although we might need to be suspicious of a lot of the things that happen in the domain Industry due to the dog eats dog nature of the domain business which has resulted in many questionable situations in the past,

    But we can't concentrate on the negative all the time and we certainly shouldn't publicly cast doubt on someone's business model and reputation without there being some real and legitimate cause to support our assertions.

    Otherwise every time that you get lucky and make a big sale on a sub par .com domain someone can open a thread and assert that the sale might have been part of some kind of a illegitimate skim.

    IMO

    I guess, OP did some of the DD and that’s why OP is asking for more info/ opinions. Whatever you know about it is not the same as I know something that is….. broader than just one dot extension (bigger picture). There was and there’s something that anyone wishing could discover about the x practices of specific registries/registrars trying to steal your, my, else money, selling empty bags and unfortunately, targeting poorer or unexperienced people.

    That’s why OP is asking , if there’s something or not .. (OP: I am a bit sceptical but can be convinced otherwise)

    Thanks for your opinions! Appreciate.

    Regards

    Your point about the Registrars and Registries doing whatever it takes to promote their products and services is valid,

    But we have to keep in mind that some extensions might be promoted by creating some high profile purchases and sales without the person who sold the domain being aware that it might have been staged by the Registry.

    Although the more experienced domainers can recognize any patterns that don't look quite right, but even if the Registries are buying certain domains themselves to create a buzz aground their extension you cannot accuse them of doing anything illegal, all you can do is to follow the patterns as they emerge and bring it to the attention of the community when you have enough proof,

    But regardless of how things might look it's unfair to cast doubts on anyone's business model and reputation just based on our suspicions and without having concrete proof (even when it comes to Registry and Registrars).

    IMO

    I see, you didn’t pick the rest of it;
    … The time when OP did a great job of promoting the domain industry and domain investment business (in particular) on BBC TV. For all of us, for free!

    Congrats on the sales @DNGear wishing you more success.

    I think it's unfair that your name is in the title. Also, I don't understand why there is a debate (just opinions), if someone knows something then share. Otherwise, I think this should have been a generic discussion about XYZ sales, not targetting a specific member. It is easy to accuse other people without evidence/facts, imagine if it was your name & legit sales being questioned for no reason :(

    You got the name out of the title.
    I also like the new title better.

    This is the best possible outcome, imo.
    And more rule changes might be underway! (Not allowed to use someone else’s name to to question their disclosed sales’ credibility.)

    We see poll results. We see majority repliesx
    Most all, we see you, working.
    Opinion of you has not changed, if anything, should reaffirm your status “Queen of XYZ
    Thanks for maintaining class, the entire time.

    Your reputation might precede that of xyz itself. And that’s a good thing. Keep leading the way. I’m most bias, but u been sharing since day 1.

    The interview I did with Swetha details a lot

    Swetha from DNGear.com has been on quite a tear in 2020. The extension of choice? .XYZ!

    12 of the top 15 reported .xyz sales in 2020 have been made by Swetha.

    I took some time to ask a few questions on how she got started, and why .xyz?

    1) When did you start domain investing?

    Swetha) Thanks a lot for this opportunity to reach all the domain investors, Raymond.

    I have started domaining since March 2015. I have registered around 600 junk domains in March and April 2015 in GoDaddy. Later on, I was started reading the namepros threads. I came to know what’s brandable domain, why would anyone buy our domain if it’s not good.

    If you can find him go ask offthehandle what questioning someone can do, because he questioned Kate Buckley. Some of her friends doxxed him on Twitter and he has not been heard from since. So yes SOMETIMES there are consequences to questioning people.

    There also has to be some consequences for members who have used inappropriate, demeaning, and insulting language here out of pure malice.

    No one deserves to be treated like this based on some unsubstantiated assumptions of wrongdoing.

    I agree but who are you referencing? To be fair some were very pissed that offthehandle was doxxed and felt Namepros should have banned those who participated. One person I know well told me after that he logged out of Namepros and has never logged back in. I asked are you ever coming back? He said, "Fuck 'em!!!" He also told me, "I am good at doxxing too, let the games begin." I don't know if he followed up on any of that.

    As I have always said we are not all on the same team.

    I was referring to this thread right here not the old one that you had mentioned.

    But in general regardless of what thread we are talking about people should learn how to express their opinions and concerns without demeaning other members.

    I felt bad for DnGear being talked down to and disrespected at times by a few members here whom their hatred for the XYZ extension and perhaps the New gTLDs in general was their only motive for their harsh treatment of someone who should have otherwise been praised for her success.

    IMO

    agree. this industry can make us jaded. w/dead beats. long negotiations, agree on price, beach of contract, shill bids, frontrunning.
    but not wise to question sales.
    i've never owned an xyz domain nor do i plan to buy.
    but why question sales. i see high prices on many extensions, mainly cctlds, than i could have anticipated each week.
