How did the Saudi land rush work out for you?

Any non-citizens (or even citizens) having luck with the Saudi land rush?

Although I imagine the people who managed to get a few may not respond to this and just smile. From what I had read, the guidelines for the land rush portion weren’t crystal clear to me (meaning it wasn’t clear to me if the land rush would have the same/similar/different rules compared to the sunrise) so I tried my luck as a non-citizen individual and non-Saudi corporation and failed miserably. All that cumbersome paperwork for nothing. Do tell us though if you have any success stories once the dust settles. I am just curious.

And it seems like even if you are a Saudi citizen applying as an individual during landrush, you still need supporting paperwork supporting your “relation” to the requested domain. Is that the case?

Also what’s deal with “you can transfer a domain but you can’t sell”? Are they going to monitor people’s Paypal transactions? :D

Looks like the part about female domain ownership is missing

13. No Domains may be owned by females.
