Needless to say it's utterly wrong.

Hate to say it but that's pretty much what I predicted.

Re: New Sedo IDN warning

Which is why they are pretty much unmarketable at the moment.

But what if some buyers suddenly deluded themselves into thinking that you could simply type in native characters on a native keyboard? You know a bit like tens of thousands are already doing every day.

Who is Sedo to determine if the "signs" are regular?

Re: New Sedo IDN warning

Instead of complaining that it is wrong on the thread here why not try telling Sedo it is wrong and what should be showing?

The recent plague of ASCII looking IDN has reduced dramatically on both the auction (now only 3 from a dozen or more per week recently) and the featured domains are down from over 30 to 1!) so something has happened,perhaps they have listened a little?

If you guys don't want to try post what would you like to see on IDN descriptions at Sedo that would satisfy the members here and be generally fair and I will give it a go to get through?

That's what I'm doing now and that's why I'm pissed off.

Yes, that's nice. I don't like the price we are paying for that however.

Was it predictable? Yes

Are we better off now?
Well, answer that for yourself.

This is the company that doesn't even show it's "closing soon" auctions on it's home page, preferring to push it's "featured domains" and "featured auctions"?

They've proved time and time again that they're not interested in listening.

The opposite to what Namedrive used to be like.

Re: New Sedo IDN warning

Not perfect, but it's better than it was, and at least they are listening. Strange they make grammar errors like "i.e." instead of "e.g.," and capitalizing "Internationalized Domain". Not to mention "signs" instead of "characters".

Re: New Sedo IDN warning

Somewhat strange warning for non-latin IDNs. SEDO should say something like, some latin IDNs are designed to look like proper English words....
