NamePros Removes High Priced Sales Forum


If you're a frequent NamePros visitor, you've probably been to the High Priced Domain Sales section on the popular domain forum. Although you can still directly navigate to this section, a link to it has been temporarily (I assume) removed from NamePros.

I have not been given an official reason for its removal, but I did receive a private message about it's disappearance when I attempted to list a domain name for sale there the other day.

There was also a public thread on the topic.  According to forum administrator NPQueen,  "We have hidden that forum while RJ is working on improving it. It will either come back improved or there will be another avenue for them. In the meantime they can be listed in another appropriate forum."

I always thought this particular sales venue was well-moderated, and I look forward to seeing what's in store for it in the futute.
