Did anyone we know write this?
So we would have to pay £11.75 to open a case + £200 GBP, if no reply by default you get the name.
Thats great because I would get one of mine back in my name from a muppet that wouldnt give me the tranfer forms, and that would probably sort quite a few of those names floating around without up to date owners listed!
erm...default sounds good but was that £11.75 + £200!! Thats way to much money to Nominet, but whats new there!!!
i know who wrote it... I regged the domain for them..
I think you'll find it is actually (£10 + VAT =) £11.75 + (£200 + VAT = ) £235 = £246.75
I've already expressed my views on the nom website about this.
What amazes me is some of the other responses, who clearly have no idea what the DRS is for...
Without wanting to branded a nutjob activist :
http://www.nominet.org.uk/policy/consultations/defaulttransfer/survey/ make sure you all go and register what you think to the proposal.
Personally I ticked the 'this is a crock of crap' box.
Oh crap, back to school for me
ive made it a sticky thread as tag holders/members should vote on this as it will effect all tag holders/members.
Is this a weighted vote?
When does the vote expire?3 October 2007.
I do not think it is a vote. I put in :
I thank Nominet for consulting on this issue. A few quick points:
- This proposal would increase the number of dubious domain claims against existing registrants and is wide open to abuse.
- If a complaint is valid and correct it can be dealt with in the current manner, I see no need for such a change in policy.
-I agree with comments already made that Nominet ought to be reminded that the long term registrants (many of whom were around before Nominet was formed) have paid the fees which have provided the basis for the company to grow to where it is at now.
- I realise it is hard for those who were slow to act in either registering, maintaining or protecting their domains to accept that someone else 'got there first' however Nominet should not bow to outside pressures and adjust policy based on other peoples mistakes.
- The current system certainly is not perfect, however it is more balanced than this current proposal. A basic element of
Critsicum without a solution is worthless, so my proposal would be to have a 'bulk discount' for companies looking to issue multiple DRS's against a single registrant as that would address the cost issue.
As for the inaccuracy problem, perhaps something along the lines of a dedicated information clean up (like the prenom project) to ensure the information Nominet has is correct.
The policy needs to be fair and correct, and not be a reflection of Nominets poor data and the lack of forsight inside some corperations.
with a 'no' vote obviously
