    Domain Auction
    How did the last domain auction go? Was it worth it to hang out? Has anyone seen a list of sites they will auction at this event?

    There were only a handful of serious buyers at the auction, plus a few bidding over the phone. It was interesting to watch for a while, but I don't think I would go to it again unless I was actually interested in one of the domains.

    The deadline for submitting domains to the auction was in early January, but I don't believe the list of domains has been published yet. The domain list for ASE '07 came out about a week before the show. (The results for that auction are here.)

    I was there and actually bid on and won a domain - low 4-figures*. Mrs. Beachy was there, too, and actually enjoyed the auction. If it was up to her I would have spent a bundle. However, there were only a couple domains in which I was interested (and could actually afford), so logic prevailed and I only ended up with one.

    * The shame of it is I have not yet begun to develop the domain. Soon, though...soon... "D

    The last auction came together at the last minute. This one will be taking place at a better time and it will be more organized.

    We'll post the domain list as soon as we have it.

    Hey, at least you started to work on it...that's a lot more than 90%+ of the other auction winners have done. I went through the list to see how those domains were being used, and it was surprising to see that almost all of them are still parked and/or up for sale again...even by owners that are heavily involved in affiliate marketing. I would've thought they'd be more proactive about using them.

    (Just a caution for anyone else checking them out: the first domain listed there is very much NSFW.)

    Sat for a short time by a domainer who was bidding $10k+. But, many had reserve bids many times that. Saw one go for $150k and there were several international bidders calling in. Would be interesting to see how it goes with the better organizations.

    can someone share the list from the past auction and what they went for? Anyone have a domain in the auction? I figure it is probably worth our time to check it out and see what is going on.

    I guess they were making enough parked to not develop them.
    Kind of crazy.
