Nothing fishy here though. It is a bit like complaining about getting a ticket after doing three red lights in broad daylight!

Re: Dingbats banned?

I am guessing that he is moaning that his Dingbats won't resolve.

Banned from registration.

Like everyone i'm busy renewing my names. So i checked my dingbats. If you don't renew your dingbats, you'll not be able to register them nor snap them after they drop.

Re: Dingbats banned?

You mean you are still trying register them. Are you nuts?

I think only dot Com and dot Net have really been allowing them anyway, which is part of the problem with Mozilla.

The thing is it is all historical. Verisign did a lot of things before "the rules" started to get formulated. Other registries have had the benefit of hindsight.

Verisign is basically waiting for a lead and clarification from ICANN.

Stopping new registrations of Dingbats, however, is a prudent move as they almost certainly won't resolve in the near future and will probably be deleted with minimal compensation.

Doesn't the fact that you cannot register new one send you any warning signals?

You should consult Blast. He has had more domains deleted than any man alive!

They don't delete dot coms, do they? I have only heard of ccTLDs being deleted.

Yes, this is what i thought as well. I thought that only countries with draconian laws will confiscate property.

They will on ICANN's instructions, but not on Mozilla's, which is why we have the Firefox problem.

Re: Dingbats banned?

ICANN won't delete dot com or dot net.

I have two bumper stickers on my pickup truck:

My Other Car is a Horse

and

You can take away my dot coms when you pry them from my cold dead fingers.





(just kidding about the bumper stickers...)

Re: Dingbats banned?

I understand your sentiment, but if the system no longer supports these names which it won't then there is little option but mass deletion. I am sure you will be credited with a registration fee, but that is not what this game is about.

Re: Dingbats banned?

Maybe. But I don't believe mass deletion (or any deletion) will occur. They will happily collect renewal fees.

I have a couple of dingbat domains and will never drop them. I really don't care if they resolve or not. I also have a few items around the house that I will probably never throw away but are never used.

Those dingbat domains are a part of my early IDNing. A part of our heritage. Historical relics.

OK. OK. Maybe not museum pieces... But I like them.

Re: Dingbats banned?

Did those ever resolve to unicode anyway? Mine only resolved using the Verisign plugin. Not with IE7.

Re: Dingbats banned?

€.net resolves fine in Firefox, but in IE7 it shows a warning saying something like "this domain contains characters that cannot be displayed with current language settings" and then an option to add new languages, but I somehow doubt there is a language that will accept it....

For ©.net, IE7 just says invalid address, though again, Firefox works fine.

Let's be clear about this, and it has been said many times on this forum, Dingbats will not be of practical use going forward. If you want to renew them for posterity, fine, but in the future don't expect anyone to buy them off you, dingbats are fool's gold.
