Looks like it will not. The person that offered has not been returning my emails.

Site is ranked on the front page of Google too…

Not sure the exact timing, but usually within 48 hours.

Once you won an auction & the domain name has been transfer to your account, how long does it take before the previous owner’s sale listing of said name disappear from sedo, godaddy, etc?

Think it is a little steep for the niche but what do I know. $3.5K is more like it. Good luck to the seller will be following closely.

1- There should be no short list and the votings on all enteries should be done by ALL those taking parts.

2- “NO ONE” should be allowed to express their personal opinions on any of the enteries, as this would definitely affect the results. This would specifically have an effect on the final decisions made by the less experienced domainers.

See G Trends for that term. The news here in Chicago has been blabbering about them all morning.

Seems to have a viral’y/social networking basis, might be a microburst, might be a more durable trend but it doesn’t take a genius to see how a standalone site could be very profitable if it keeps up.

My dance card is so full, I can’t even think of another project but this one might be worth it. If someone earns a ton, I can be thanked with anything priced “POR” at Guitar Salon.

It’s correct that I awaited Elliot’s confirmation before selling the domain (i wouldn’t have sold it for higher either).

Also the votes were much appreciated.

Elliot, thanks again for the publicity of the domain! Donation sent.

Best Regards,

Jeroen

Owner emailed me today asking if I minded if he sold it before the contest was over and I told him I didn’t mind since selling was the point of holding the contest. I would think the owner will go through with the deal.

Looks like the deal is off. I will keep my offer open for another 24 hrs.
