    As 2015 almost finished and I'm sure most of you have regrets...
    My regret is not taking action in .xyz frenzy :(
    What is yours? Let it out...

    I could have registered phones.xyz for $5 in the first few days of release, but influenced by the domain community's pessimism in the extension, I let it go. I also sold my only CHIP for $100 earlier this year, ouch.

    I regret not looking into the numerics while I had the chance and missed out on hand-reg fee for a lot of NNN, NNNN and even NNNNN .xyz/.link/.info/.club/etc. (.com long gone) :-$

    "Being lazy" is my greatest regret. Domains are secondary.

    Biggest regret of 2015 is not joining NamePros until this year. Love it, and should have joined years ago.

    I could reg about 100 6n palindromes this summer, but finally regd only 2, and the rest desappeared in next 3 days.
    Were palindromes with 0, but nice palindromes.
    And I also didnt reg a few dropped 7n with 8888, and was ignore numeric until octubre.

    Hello,

    My biggest mistakes were:

    1. Not to believe that much in LLLL.net chips and not staying update about the increased value.
    2. Selling most of my LLLL.com non-chips too early.

    I was collecting LLLL.com's from $15 - $30. Suddenly, prices started to increase and I gave up buying. Thanks god, I was able to buy 150 LLLL.coms, some of them were CHIPS. My regret is that I could rise my range to $100. Then I would have several thousands LLLL.coms ....

    My 'biggest regret' of 2015 is that I was too much focused on other new gTLDs than .top

    May your dad rest in peace! It's not your fault, you can't be everywhere, anytime.

    My biggest regret of 2015 is that I paid GD so much in commissions and didn't realize other ways to sell like this forum. What a costly year.
