    Delivery restrictions should be setup @ nominet's end - anyone can email that address and get a message to all the recipients.

    Signed. And a big thank you for starting some constructive opposition.

    I very nearly didn't click on this thread... I just didn't realise from the thread title that it was a petition against Nominet's 50% price hike. Very glad I did click on it now as this is so important.

    Can I suggest changing the thread title to make it clear what the petition is for please. There must be many hundreds of Nominet members who would be eager to get behind this and we need all the signatures we can get. Let's make it as clear as possible to hook in as many potential votes as possible.

    Can I please suggest bolding the instruction to include the Nominet TAG in the submission instructions for the Member petition? I only noticed that instruction today on what must have been about my tenth visit to the page (needless to say I forgot ours, which is MEMORABLE)

    Twitter

    I see on Twitter the required number of signatures at EGM.uk is very close to the required number.

    So if you are a Nominet member please
    consider signing up at www.EGM.uk/

    Or if not a member, if you know one please contact them with the link.

    Hi Stephen,

    How does it work, x amount of members with x amount of names are needed? ie you need a volume of names like voting rights?

    5% of members


    Yes as I understand it is 5% of current members who have voting rights can call a EGM as it is under company law rules, as Nominet even though it is limited by Guarantee is still a limited company.

    For this action it is nothing to do with the number of domains held by those members.

    When there other votes like choosing a Director a more complex formula that includes the domains held by a registrar is taken into account.
