    Risky to park a TM name, but as a .co.uk you would max earn pennies anyway. Get rid of it, or make a fan site..

    Just make a quick site and put some ads on it, it will earn more traffic and it will be much more worth when you sell it.

    You can park it as long as the ads are not related to the game. You will only know if it's worth when you try it out. Perhaps better to develop it though, just be careful with the TM issue.

    Another option would be to hold on the name a bit and then sell it.

    Put on two or three articles. Add a little adsense. Promote a little.

    Parked domains don't do well in serp. Only type-in would come which wouldn't even payback the domain cost.

    Do type-ins work at all for non .com domains?

    Of course But it depends on the domain, and I highly doubt a game title .co.uk would get traffic.. At least not as much to be worth any kind of hassle.

    Yep, specially when the domain was developed in the past.
    Well known acronyms typically get a few type-ins per day to say the least.

    for combatarms.co.uk, I wasn't actually thinking of the game at all, I first thought of a "coat of armor" or shield. So, putting up a site about larp (Live action role-playing game - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) might actually work.

    Sounds like an idea, i might give it a go once i get my other website running.

    thanks
