    Edwin,

    May I ask why didn't these ones make it into your list of 5000+ .... some look pretty okay?

    Cheers, Luke

    You're quite right, there are some extremely decent names in there. Even more so for people planning to actually build affiliate/mini sites on them I think.

    However, I've hand-registered nearly 800 names in the last few weeks, so I'm trying to be a bit more "selective", especially when I'm finding so many relatively untapped niches (see the "Recently registered..." thread).

    My brand new rule (invented last night) is to register no more than 50% of my "finds" no matter how good they look, to "force selectivity". The first iteration resulted in the 80-odd names I mentioned that I registered in the other thread, plus the above list. So the easiest way to put temptation out of reach is to post my list of "hmm, perhaps" names publicly and then delete it from my PC - that way I'm forcing myself to start from scratch on a fresh list :)

    (Argh! Just scrolled up. Must-stop-myself-from-rereading-list...)

    Edwin,

    You're a card!

    Thanks for the candid reply.

    Good luck, as ever

    Electricslicers taken to go with my electricmeatslicers :lol:

    I'm, hoping to put some leaflets round butchers, bakers and factories, just wish I was the merchant gaining full profit ;-)
    I can offer a wider range on elecrticslicers.

    Admin > I figure that I owe you £5 donation plus I got a £150 sale on here last week so will give you 10% of that like last time = £20 total
    Just give me a chance to get on top of things and £20 is coming your way.

    Edwin > Your rule of only regging 50% seems good but that's still loads, to cut down my list and make some money I sold a list of availables, I could maybe get a list together and post with donations to Admin.

    My new rule is after my next 10 FTR domains, regardless of how much I want some more, I am not going reg any untill I sell at least 1 and then for eg,I sell a domain for £400, keep £250 for survival and use £150 to reg 25 more domains, that should work.

    Many thanks Edwin and Admin :cool:

    Excellent strat - you just have to look around the forums (acorn and others) for people who dont 'restock' and just splurge cash away without thinking for the future

    You need a strategy.co.uk ;-)

    Availables? I could not resist...!

    How to spot domain name addiction...

    I visited Acorn today to check a few posts and messages, and stumbled across Edwin's post about available domain names that his new "rules" did not permit him to register.

    Thanks, Edwin, for making these names public. I don't think I could bear to do that with names I have researched and passed on.
    You share so much in your posts and are a true inspiration.

    Sadly, you have also caused me to break my own rules about not registering any more names or (worse!) paying others for their research.
    Initially I was attracted by "Goldsmithing.co.uk" (a friend of mine is a goldsmith). And then I started analysing your list and came up with the following:

    artificialgrasslawn.co.uk
    chainlinkfences.co.uk
    goldsmithing.co.uk
    handtuftedrug.co.uk
    handtuftedrugs.co.uk
    herbplanters.co.uk
    minisewingmachines.co.uk
    moisturetester.co.uk
    moisturetesters.co.uk
    nasdevice.co.uk
    nasdevices.co.uk
    particulatefilter.co.uk
    particulatefilters.co.uk
    pebblepool.co.uk
    soiltester.co.uk
    soiltesters.co.uk

    All now registered. I have transferred 16 x £5 to Admin.

    (Why can't I be like any other woman and have a passion for handbags. Or shoes. Why domain names?)

    But on a more serious note:
    I could simply add these domains to my landbank of other undeveloped names. But while I researched the names I had an idea.
    Wouldn't it be fun to give each name to a different domainer/developer and have a competition as to who can monetize the name best within a given timeframe? Either sell the name or develop it - while being watched by the domain community.
    I would be happy to provide some prize money and come up with a set of rules for this challenge. I need about 5 people who have a track record in domain monetization before setting this in motion.

    Turning Edwin's discards into domaining gold...
    Anybody game?

    I'm game but don't have a track record I'm afraid, ah well I can always watch from the sideline.

    Good idea and should encourage some enthusiasm amongst domainers :cool:

    Good luck to the 5 :cool:

    As one of the people that caught domainitis early on, your addiction has paid handsome dividends.

    Unfortunately, the domainitis virus mutated over time and people that get it now have an nastier variety with less scope for pleasing side effects :)

    Your competition idea is amazing, I've only got into this domaining lark in the last couple of weeks. To watch proven 'old hands' using their expertise would be a great learning curve. Do it!!

    Haven't checked out any of your names yet to see if they are of interest, but competitions always sound a great idea to me :D
