Morning Folks!!

It's been a while but never too far away.

In case you haven’t heard my partners and I are opening up not only a domain brokerage, not only a marketplace on Stud.com but we have added some secret sauces that’s going to blow the doors off of the industry and open us up to the world.

Stud.com was born on July 1 via a Twitter post and for the last 100 days or so we have been working night and day to bring Stud.com online.

The domain marketplace is about 1/3 of what stud.com is going to be about.

In the weeks ahead we will unveil version 1.0 of STUD. But we won’t stop there. We have big plans for expansion as we add these new features.

Stud will be a paid membership if you want to list your domain names and free to those that want to shop and buy. Other services will be offered. Some free, some paid.

Stud will not only empower domainers we will show domain investors how to get top dollar for their prime Domain Names by “Breeding” them not just selling them. But when they do sell, they need to get top dollar.

Looks like they are accepting all extensions as long as they are valued above $2,500

He said he will be incresing that threshold but I think nice clean one word .ca's will always qualify because we can easily price them at 100k.
 
Rick's post says:
OUR number one enemy are domain investors selling their assets way too cheap. When it comes to valuation domainers are either up in the ozone for worthless domains or they’re giving away life-changing domains for less than life-changing amounts. Sometimes even chump change. When will they ever learn??

I agree 100%
 
Isn't this a pay service?
 
It was set up just as a contact form, make an offer. I switched it to Escrow.com with a BIN price. But when I made the switch, it used a default price, and I quickly changed it. You must have seen it in the 15 seconds it was at the other price. Shoulda hit buy now faster :)

Rick knows I own it anyways.
 
Damn, I missed it....

If you want to annoy Rick just point it at our marketplace :LOL:
Lol, yes, I was one of the first to have an account but their system has never really worked well enough to be useful. I got tired of going back to check. Obviously its a work in progress. Once I hear that its up and running reasonably well, then I'll put up some good domains that'll fit right in there. But yeah, putting up Stud.ca would be pretty funny. It would be a good "put up or shut up" statement to make by listing it there.
 
Rick chose to promote and get feedback on his platform on DNForum rather than :poop: namepoos.com or DN.ca or Twitter.

He had a falling out on :poop: namepoos.com like the rest of us, and dn.ca is obviously too small a platform so dnforum is the next alternative.

The project has taken forever and at this rate will take years to work out the bugs.

My account there has been deleted twice, with every redesign I re-upload and later poof everything is gone.

Not doing that again for a while.

based on the pace of progress, Rick & I both will certainly be dead before it is production ready.

Minutes ago I finally pulled the plug on Stud .com After donating a 7-figure domain name, a lot of cash, and a lot of my valuable time, I have been left with a bunch of empty promises and one broken deadline after another as you have all seen. It has been a total embarrassment! To add insult to injury the developer and partner wanted to blame me even tho I had no responsibility other than what I did which was far more than what we had agreed on to begin with. That was the last straw! I should’ve pulled the plug over a year ago when they missed the first deadline. BUT I believed in someone and bought into their bullshit. It was a mistake. I got fooled and hoodwinked then blamed by someone that should’ve been grateful for the opportunity. They never lived up to the video that I was sent which someday I may post. They failed to produce a working product regardless of a multitude of promises and dates that they failed to live up to. I had enough after OVER a year and a half. I have given them every opportunity. Even just a few weeks ago, they still couldn’t even give me a date when the damn site would go live! WTF!!?? I have a life to live and this has been a total and an embarrassing waste of time, energy and effort!!! It also illustrates why I am a soloist. I don’t like to depend on other people because when I do that I have always been let down. I am sorry but VERY happy this is over and done with! My sincere apologies!!

Can't say I did not see that coming!!
 
Could it be that he is trying to acquire the .CA from @rlm for cheap?? ;)

Lol, no, definitely not. I 100% believe what Rick had to say, and I feel for him, and fully understand his statement:

That's been my experience too. That is precisely why I love domains, you don't need to rely on anyone else.

Honestly I was just joking.. but I too agree with him. It's so sad that we are unable to trust people nowadays. When we were young and growing up things were quite different. In that regard, the world had turned so bad. Gone are those days.. Sad... :cry:

I feel bad for Rick, but he should take some responsibility if he picked the wrong partner(s) to work with, didn't do (enough) due diligence on them, etc. That being said, Stud.com remains a great domain name, and is better suited to some other type of venture. Would make a great home improvement brand name and domain.
