Discussion in 'Nominet Tag Holders' started by Whois-Search, Mar 28, 2006.
What do Nominet members here think about the Weighted Voting changes being discussed on Nom-Steer ?
As I am currently standing for PAB election I feel I must comment
Personally as the recent EGM elections have shown it needs some form of capping of vote %ages to prevent the 3 main voters from pushing through their opinions.
Ideally 1 membership 1 vote
I have 0 domains on my TAG
Pipex must have 480 x 1043 = 500,640 domains
Total value £5 x 500,640 = £2,503,200
Why shouldn't they have more "opinion" ?
Because ‘maybe’ the fact that Pipex doesn’t have 500k domains (i.e. they’re not the ultimately the registrants).
Now here’s an interesting idea: How about for every domain a registrant registers one Nominet ‘share’ was issued? This would ‘truly’ represent a balanced approach to the biggest ‘stakeholders’ (i.e. registrants) in a proportional and ‘fair’ way. Let’s face it; it’s the registrants in the end who pay for and drive all of this!!!
It seems a shame that those that fund this operation (i.e. the registrants) and are the reason Nominet exists, are not represented ‘in any seeming way’ in the running of Nominet. It’s a shame really – Not very customer focused I would say.
Would be interesting to see who the 'top registrants' were .........
We all pay the membership fee to Nominet. This then gives us merely the privilege of purchasing domains at £5, therefore buying a domain is merely a perk of membership and shouldn't be used to judge how much say we have.
Richard Martin I presume?, I'm not sure I agree with the 1 membership/1 vote as above, there should be some kind of weighted vote with regards to either the amount of domains registered by the registrant or some other form, but I do agree that the current system has it's flaws.
Other than that some really good aims in your election statement....good luck!
