As DomainGang.com broke the news that Namepros.com has been sold to Bodis. I want to make this post not about the sale but about Ron James.
I joined Namepros in October of 2004, and made many contacts and many domain purchases and sales. We spent a lot of nights in chat discussing ideas like forum escrow and others. I learned a lot from RJ and hope he got something back in return.
I started posting about .tv as there was not much discussion about the .tv extension. The every now and then thread about "Why are their prices different" and "What is a premium .tv name ?"
I pm'd RJ about an idea for a .tv sub forum, at the time no forum had a specific sub forum for one extension. RJ was more than helpful in setting it up immediately, he set up a marketplace and news section as well.
This sub forum has been responsible for really educating people about .tv and bringing it more exposure. Many who spent at times all day there have done pretty well with their .tv names and RJ is part of that success.
Congrats on the sale, best of luck to you and your wife and thank you.
