Include a message option - that would be great. I think what would be best is (rather than allowing anyone to message) once someone makes an offer, the seller can decide to send a message in response. This is important for people like me who have domains for existing companies and want to sell them to the company itself. When they receive an offer, it would be impossible for them to know if it is them or not without messaging (or at least a ‘request email’ feature). Thanks.

Hi Johnny........... wee issue with buyers offers and the date/format displayed for when the offer was placed........ when the same buyer is coming back to make another run at a new offer (could be weeks/months later).... the new offers are mingled with the previous/OLD offers which is very confusing........... this may also extend to yearly dates being mixed as the displayed format is only month/day. I note that the new offer is in a darker text which is something but still confusing..would be useful if the offers were all descending by date (current most recent at top? (edited)
just adding my couple cents on having a minimum offer valu, PLEASE - preferably as a percentage of listed price [a settable percentage would be even better!] :-)

Bartering or Swapping Names
It would be great if there was a similar alternative to the swap exchange scheme that is done with collectible stickers or trading cards. Possibly there are many users who eventually accumulate a large number of names, thus there is the possibility of losing the initial enthusiasm for some of them, however, to stimulate the market place it would be interesting that in addition to the possibility of offering hns there would also be an alternative of propose direct and mutually satisfactory exchanges between one or more names
when some form of minimum offer is made functional, it would be nice to have a generic setting that allows an across the board percentage [minimum 40% of price, 50%/60% whatever personal preference is] for all new pricings and an integrated option to change it individually for each new listing - and ability for it to be back-dated on all current listings at time of going live so as not have to go into every last individual name for sale to update them! cheers

Filter against spam offers
Having a large amount of names for sale leads to you getting about 3-5 emails per day about offers. Most of these are spam, in the sense that a buyer offers ~10 HNS for the name, even if one has put the name out for 1000-2000 HNS.
I'd like to somehow filter away those unreasonable offers. Either an in-built function where one can manually set some kind of lowest acceptable offer threshold, or simpler just Namebase not sending out emails about offers that are too small for anyone to reasonably care.
I basically don't care about any offer that is below 100-200 HNS, it is not worth my time.

Set Minimum Offer
I've started receiving hundreds of low-ball offers for my 3 letter names. I receive an email for every single offer. It's getting spammy. I would like to be able to set some kind of minimum offer number that only allows a person to send me an offer if it is above that minimum threshold number. Maybe there could also be some sort of "auto message" that I can write that anyone who bids below this minimum offer would receive to help communicate or negotiate a little.
