Just wondering - what would you pay for the wtf.com domain, and what do you figure is a realistic street value ?
No idea, but I might be willing to spend 4-5 figures for this one as I have an idea that this would be great for and which is actually moving forward.What did Consumption Junction sell for? I forget
Thanks for the interesting insight. Well, I suppose the domain owner will get in touch with me if the valuation was attractive.Well we know the price was too high for the World Taekwondo Federation and for WTF SRL in Roumania.
A lot would have to do with the URLs Alexa rating. But ultimately a URL may be worth more to you if you have a strategy.

I never went there, but this came from the Hacker News site.What did Consumption Junction sell for? I forget.

Consumption junction was the bomb. Some one needs to resurrect it, or something very similiar to it.

I remember it well -- it was my website.
I truly loved doing it, but the problem (presumably one all the sites of that nature had) was it was incredibly difficult to monetize. Pretty much the only customers willing to advertise over a video of someone being pooped on were porn sites, so our choice was to go all-in on porn, or have a very, very expensive hobby (monthly bandwidth bill was in the $30k-40k range). We eventually sold it to one of said porn companies, and they "solved" the monetization problem by putting an age verification system (AVS in porn-speak) on the landing page, which was ultimately just a way to bang people's credit cards.
As for resurrection, my old partner recently spoke to the current owner of the domain about re-launching it, but he wasn't interested. I hear he's a big VC muckity-muck now though, so, "S", if you're reading this, let's do a deal. The people demand to be horrified.

Couldn't you do a deal with LiveLeak to build them an ad-fueled trending dashboard? Regular ads for the liveleak videos that aren'tfeaturing jihadi rockstars decapitating contractors, and porn ads for the videos featuring homemade gopro footage of horses boinking large women. You could pick your level of horror and get ads to match, and always have a fresh streaming pile (.....) of horrible videos you can't find on YouTube.

Maybe some sort of p2p hosting decentralisation like ZeroNet? I guess people can personally fund the site directly. Maybe some sort of way for the users to "tip" the submitter and the site and the uploader split the "tip".[/TD]
