NamePros takes over top spot for domain forums.
In a major reversal to last year’s survey, NamePros has come out on top in the 2007 Domain Name Wire survey for best domain name forum. NamePros received 55% of the vote compared to only 12% last year. DNForum, on the other hand, dropped from 43% to 35%.
NamePros’ popularity shows in its user statistics. As I write there are 1,078 people discussing domain names at NamePros in thousands of threads. DNForum is hopping as well with 1,295 visitors.
DNForum is trying to clean up its image. The forum banned posting trademark domains for sale and has started to use a points system to remove members who seem to visit only to pick fights. DNForum has strong leadership from domain investor Adam Dicker.
Many domainers rave about the help they are able to give and receive at NamePros. In general, it’s good to have a couple major domain forums. It leads to innovation and allows people of different skill levels to participate.
