    Some bargains were had there......loads went for £10 each with only one bidder.

    Bit too early to say Doug, applications are floating around that are unpaid for as yet and people have until the 22nd to pay for them :)

    Ultimately I think you'll probably be right that quite a few XX.me.uk's will end up being uncontested though.

    considering its a .me.uk, what do folks think is a realistic aftermarket price for such domains anyway?

    tbh I'm split between whether I'd rather have my first name or initials in .me.uk - Probably neither. Quite a lot of them I'd probably only place at £xx, but it does depend I guess. Each to their own...

    I'd quite like my first name .co.uk, but that would involve giving Doug a wad of cash :)

    its hard enough selling first names to end users at a sensible price, can only imagine initials will be even harder. don't see these setting the aftermarket world alight :)

    I think I'd rather deal with Doug for my name rather than Steve Jackson who has it :(

    The short version of my name is 4k, which is more than I'd pay for a vanity name.

    I only own a few .me.uk but only where I own the .co.uk for it. I have a .me TLD for a particular client, when I give that name to people on the phone they inevitably say ".me.com" and occasionally ".me.co.uk". My mum uses a .tel for her personal email and people always pause after she says .tel waiting for the rest.

    So for personal emails it has to be .co.uk or .com for me personally.
