||Round Robin for Land Rush II, No Mention of Land Rush I Folks
Link to Afilias' press release concerning
Land Rush II is below. Looks like another round robin.
1) It is a shame
that no mention is made of giving any standing to Land Rush I folks who lost pre-registration
money due to Sunrise Squatters due to poor data checking. If anyone from the
press or Afilias asks me, I will offer ways in which standing to Land Rush I folks
could be done in Land Rush II... not easy... but could be done. I have posted
ideas at http://www.DomeBase.com.
2) One possible bright point to this sad scenario.
Many folks here have noted that .info is languishing because most of the good names
are locked up in Sunrise shenannagins and no one is developing them. if good
names get out to people who will actually use them this Spring, then we may yet see
.info take off.
3) If I may boast, note the number of names that Afilias is challenging
--- around 10,000 or 20% of Sunrise regs. I estimated around 15-25% back in
August. At that time, some folks said I estimated too high... but this appears
to validate the 15%-25% range.
Sincerely, DomeBase (Bob)
