    Noticed that 'certain' tags that seemed to be dominating catches recently have been noticeably absent recently.
    Fixed a flaw or Busted?

    If I was a catcher trying to game the system, I would be keeping my head down until the start of September, because that's when the real cash-cascade begins, as Fasthosts and Ionos .uk names get deleted.

    I'd keep quite low profile for the next 8 or 9 weeks, then it's anyone's guess who's going to smash and grab.

    Why get pulled over for a handful of domains this month, when you're waiting for hundreds of thousands of names to come tumbling over the cash waterfall the first two weeks in September?

    Better to get your deckchairs out and rest and enjoy the summer on your Namesco earnings from January.

    1,165,000 .uk domains were mass-registered in June 2019, before the official RoR name drop at the start of July. In July, 72,000 .uk domains were registered in the actual ROR drop process and the weeks that followed.

    If I were to belong to a dodgy cartel (if such a thing exists) my eyes would be very firmly fixed on September 4th to September 12th.

    No, likely just moved to a new tag. Look out for some of the newer ones that have been catching recently.

    Wow - that's going to be interesting!
    1) Will these show up in the various droplists?
    2) I'd assume these are all the 3 letter and dictionary domains right?
    or what's worth catching in the ROR drop? I don't know it very well.

    *It's feasible that 1 or 2 of these have now been claimed by the original .co.uk holders, but frankly the vast majority will drop because the registrants never wanted the .uk names, never asked for them, never agreed to being named as the 'registrants' (or you might say 'ghost registrants').

    In total, Fasthosts mass-registered 797 domains starting with a number, and that's before you even get to names that start with the letter 'A'...

    There are "alot" (.uk)...

    There's gonna be so many dropping that a lot of decent names are probably gonna be FTR for a short while.

    Wow - that's what I figured!

    The challenge will be to pick up stuff that's actually usable and not grab a bunch of junk because it sounds good!

    Will these be on the usual sites like UKDroplists or how do you know which ones are going to drop?
