So just like everyone else in this industry Afternic is going from a transparent company to one that hides it’s stats.

Great…way to go Afternic! Don’t do the industry any favors, okay?

Tim,
I thought the same thing 2 weeks ago when they announced the change in policy regarding the publication of sales data.

Pete and others at NM were promoters.
The new management slogan is “knowledge is power for them”.

Isnt it great? Even more transparency. Their online portfolio management system is riddled with bugs. Customer service is generally absent. When customer service finally does get around to responding, they give the run around and you had better be prepared to run. Domains submitted for sale consideration are lumped into their own 2+ million domain names and do not stand a chance since their sales team is also, generally absent. I lost a sale last year because I was never notified by one of Afternic’s partners that a bid on the name caused the action to be won. The buyer apparently waited 3 weeks for a reply from ANYONE (me, afternic or the 3rd party) and I cant see how I would be able to tell since my sales rep dropped the ball. And how would the 3rd party know since it was simply listed there and I BET Afternic doesnt “share data with anyone else either”.

SO……. If Afternic shoes its face at these domain conferences they should feel embarrassed to be there. They’re the bottom of the barrel according to me, and many others – judging from their forums.
