how about a web page where people think of good ideas for domain names and submit them and other people can see the list of domains and register them if they like them?

www.makewords.com - domain name generator
An intelligent word generator for finding available domains and unique names [taunon, Apr 16 2005]
||Yeah, and domainnameideapool is available.
||I'd found a 'porn domain generator' at one point, but can't find it now...it would generate a domain name from a set of pieces, and estimate how much you might be able to sell it for...
||Does [phoenix]'s anno have any relevance to the idea? If it does then I probably missed it.
||Better yet, [phoenix], what about that show set on the coast in Maine with the weird little boy with ESP whose the father was a lighthouse keeper and the mother a postage stamp artist? I can't remember the name of it, though.
||[bz], never watched it, but I think the show was called "The Brothership of Poland, Maine" or something.
||I'm not sure about this idea. The reason this sort of thing works for the Halfbakery is because most of the ideas are not very practical, or at least can't practically be implemented by the person who thinks it up. Domain names are easy to buy and sell, and require no special knowledge. Nobody would want to submit a domain name and then have somebody else sell it for 8 gazillion dollars to a mega-corporation the next year.
