Just saw this news today:

Special Announcement: It is with great excitement that Epik also announces its acquisition and planned integration of DNForum. As the oldest community of domain investors and collectors in our industry, we recognize the tremendous opportunity it represents to extend new opportunities and financial empowerment through its experienced membership base. Stay tuned for official announcements and invitations to check out new resources, content, and special promotions! We are excited for the future, and all the good things that are to come.

Through July, $6.99 for inbound transfers of .com domains with no restrictions, as well as $7.99 on all new .com registrations. You can also take advantage of the historically low price of $6.99 for first year .org registrations, as well as new registrations of the popular .co for only $0.99.

I hope all the BS about mentioning another forum stops now.


At DN.ca we have no such rules and cross posting from one forum to another is welcomed, no different to cross posting from one blog to another.


Seriously I don't understand why the mere mention of DN.ca can get you scolded fiercely and threatened for a ban on DNForum and namepros.


It's a small industry, if we all work together it is for everyone's benefit.

We are excited to preserve this important piece of industry history with nearly 500,000 users as the industry's oldest forum. With new technologies, new stewardship and a genuine commitment to empowerment, we hope to provide a thriving community where content and commerce unite to create a new era of abundance and cooperation in the industry.

As for your specific comment, it is not a secret that I believe scarcity is an illusion. As such, I never understood why forums banned links to each other. It makes no sense. I also believe companies should be welcome to come pitch their solutions. DNForum will not be Epik-centric. If Epik can bring more optimism and cooperation to the industry, count me in!

I plan to continue to post in many forums as time allows. There are great threads all over. I appreciate it when people tag me and I do follow up on those tags assuming I can add value to a conversation. I don't participate at Clubhouse yet simply because of time management, but at some point I plan to join with Canada's own Dan Cera to whom I promised a debut.

Hope you all had an awesome Canada Day this year!

Hi Rob

Dan Cera [notify]DomainTrader[/notify] is a dear friend of mine and he is quite active on twitter and clubhouse.

I can tell you there is not a more genuine human being in domaining than Dan.
We sometimes lose track and chat for hours on the phone.

His insights are quite valuable and I enjoy every single time we get to catch up.

Dan Cera keeps it real. We talk regularly.

I believe this is the 3rd owner since Adam sold it. I’m sure Epik will be more involved than the previous ones.

Congratulations on the acquisition [notify]epik[/notify]

Congratulations to Epik!
Rob Monster is a class guy and so is his team.

Adam

Thanks Adam.

As for DNForum, we are happy to empower and fund a team that is taking it to the next level. The spirit of co-creation will hopefully help many. When it comes to helping the many, I believe this industry's brightest days are still ahead!

As for being a "class guy", we are ALL on a journey. The universe helps us to raise the bar and to keep growing in grace. I call life the "Soul Gym". It is my favorite place to work out. Related comment:

Blessings to all the kind folks at DN.ca who let us non-Canadians hang out. All.Ca is coming along nicely even though CIRA made getting a .CA accreditation about as painful as removing wisdom teeth! Not sure what's up with that but we are not quitters.

Looks like I was the first to let the cat out of the bag at DNForum @=

Happy to have facilitated to help make that claim and I saw the post giving credit. o_O

I agree with [notify]AdamDicker[/notify] on Rob. He is classy person, whom I have met several times at the NamesCon in person and so is the other Rob in his team, (whom I haven't met yet).

I was happy to break the news here, as I thought it would be very timely for both the platforms to coexist for the benefit of it's members. We have the best two persons who can facilitate that in Frank and Rob now.

Yeah, I was not sure how much I could say at DNForum without getting my wrists slapped so I was careful in what I said.

I noticed @amplify over there is new to the staffing position and he did not know about the censoring there either.

He made a claim on the tldinvestors that DNForum did not censor and he was quickly corrected.

I think censorship of lawful content is weak sauce. The moderators are encouraged to keep a light hand and the community members are encouraged to self-governing by manifesting the most noble version of themselves. Should be cool.

I am thankful for the industry leaders who connect dots. As such, Maple Dots is a brand name that resonates with me. The dot-connectors of the world who selflessly connect people and opportunities are underrated. It is a gift to be able to do that well.
