    Everyone seems to be letting them drop lately.

    Even seen old time domainers dropping them, been interesting, some people like shores, I never bothered even trying to catch their names as they never ever drop but recently seen a heap drop where I been like oh god why oh why did I not try.

    Dropping about 30 but this is due to me needing to focus on a project ;)

    Some are with heart internet and it pi**es me off that i have to keep watching them till 30 days before they expire till i can cancel renewals :(

    Now regging elsewhere !!!

    Goodbye Heart !!! ( Rant over )

    We should start a thread where we all post names due to be dropped and sell them to other people at reg fee, will certainly keep drop catchers speeds up without pointless catches :)

    Over the last few months, roughly 5%. Probably will stay between 5-10%.

    Second the motion. A 'will drop - sell for reg fee' forum thread will be a good addition to the 'for sale' section.

    How about fixed £7.50 per domain price (buyer pays Nom as normal).
