Dear Professionals
>tel is a failing extension and will continue to fail if no radical change is 
>made in its basic outlook.
The Telnic template is almost useless except for local directories which are 
easy to set up. However, other easy and media rich directory software is now 
available so people will not be attracted to and stick to a tel directory. The 
Tel directories are 1990's ish.
As a single point-of-contact, well that is good idea in theory but a dead idea 
in practice. While Tel was starting up, Facebook happened.
The Telnames template is fantastic but should have a bit more features and be a 
bit more pliable. However this alone will not suffice to allow for a TEL 
The best solution is two-fold:
1. Remove the restrictions from the TEL domain. Allow people to build real 
websites.2. Allow a registrant to choose between templates, Telnic, Telnames, 
or choose no-template and develop their own site.
TEL (the name) is fantastic as an extension name and I believe it will be an 
oasis of brand stability and recognition among the hundreds of new TLDs.
