    It's been an interesting year or two here on Acorn for me. However, over my domaining years - I've become familiar with separate Boards/forums for development and pure domaining. Without going into all the pros and cons. I'd like to get a perspective on the active Acorn membership camps.

    Do you see yourself as primarily a "website developer" or "domainer" ?

    I've purposefully made the choice only Black or White - And hope each can identify With where they are operating in domains, So thats not necessarily where you would want to be.

    I would say I have been mainly a domainer but I hope to develop a nice portfolio soon.

    Pretty much the same as Rob - especially as my portfolio is fairly average in quality compared to some.

    Developer, I guess... I do sell more developed domains than... just domains ;)

    Both "domainer" I have a collection of nice domains, "developer" some i develop, many on behalf of clients.

    I guess strictly speaking there are very few pure domainers. I'd guess 99% of domainers have fingers in development, even STJ.

    I would say I'm a developer and domaining affords me better development.

    Doesn't help that I don't like selling :p

    Domainer.

    Currently I am an increasingly-serious spare time domainer rather than a spare time website developer.

    I am not yet a proven domainer. I am a proven developer in other arenas, but not yet with websites.

    I am unlikely to be full time in either discipline in the short or medium term.

    Always thought of myself as more of a developer but then loaded all my domains into an excel sheet and was shocked to see how many I had - perhaps I should consider selling a few more! :)

    Cheers for the feedback guys. The ratio does surprise me somewhat and I had expected to see a near 50/50 split Certainly not an 80/20. My interest is based on trying to understand the selling/buying dynamics for domains in couk on Acorn. Which this ratio does, despite being a surprise, It also gives me a basic assurance of a relevant factor that I'd initially started to get concerned about.

    I will give you a better explanation later - but it is quite obvious anyway

    Neither too. I like domains, but don't actively pursue large quantities. Likewise, I love the web, but don't actively develop websites.
