    Anyone else received emails for phantom .me.uk transfers today?

    Looks like Nominet is doing some policing/tidy up, but they've managed to turn off renewals for some of mine which is pretty annoying.

    I had this from Nominet yesterday.....

    Just did a free transfer within my account

    Hi,

    I am contacting you today regarding your .me.uk domain name(s)

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    The current registrant of the domain name(s) xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    www.nominet.org.uk/go/rules

    The rules for .me.uk state that

    10. Specific rules for the .me.uk SLD

    10.2 Charter

    The .me.uk SLD is intended to provide a personal namespace within the .uk Top Level Domain. Unless Rules 10.4 or 10.5 apply, registrants of .me.uk domain names must be, and remain at all times, natural persons (a “qualifying person"), and shall not be recorded on the register as being the agent, trustee, proxy or representative for any person or entity (whether having an individual legal personality or not) which is not a qualifying person.

    As your domain name(s) are in breach of the .me.uk rules, we require you to change the registrations so that the domain names are registered to a qualifying person.

    I do appreciate that the domain name(s) may have been registered this way for some time, however further to some recent data quality checks within our register this has been brought to our attention.

    Interesting, thanks.

    I haven't had any contact from them yet, but I've transferred the important one into my name.

    This is just off the back of the tag classification checks isn't it?

    While they were checking your tags correct, why now check DQ ?
