Subject: Guys, why not call Afilias when you are not sure of something? No names were released.

To the people here wondering if they got a challenged name because the registrar let it go through and it showed in the whois - that's absurd.  This happens every three weeks or so with afilias. A couple weeks ago they "released" two character names. Its when they are working on the database and accidently open part of it up to registrations that this happens. Call afilias and see. No names were released whatsoever. So whatever you did at your register or whatever you saw in a whois, forget about it. Total mistake. Happens all the time. All of it will be erased.

Released names, the ones being challenged now or the ones that will be bulked challenged, will be announced in advanced.

Of course, now you have to get the money refuned back to you from your registrar. Good luck with that one!
