ICANN may let new TLD applicants modify their applications

ICANN is considering allowing applicants for new top level domains to make changes to their applications, the organization confirmed to Domain Name Wire today.
The group is working on a process that could allow applicants to fix errors in their final applications. Officially:

ICANN has received requests for changes to submitted applications. We take these requests very seriously and are working on developing guidelines for these changes.
The ICANN community spent a lot of time coming up with applicant guidelines, but one it didn’t think to include was a mechanism for fixing errors in applications.

We might also see VeriSign ask to alter some of the IDNs it submitted. More on that later.

this is not domainnamewire reporting that they have heard verisign want to modify their applications

this is domainnamewire reporting that there are those of us who think verisign should modify their applications

Re: ICANN may let new TLD applicants modify their applications

Well, if Kerry is allowed to correct their spelling mistake (don't know) then Verisign should be allowed to make edits too.

Re: ICANN may let new TLD applicants modify their applications

Let's also remember that Verisign has ICANN over a barrel with the .com contract so I think they'll certainly get the ability to correct their Hebrew cock-up if they so desire.

I've no doubt that the typos will be allowed to be fixed, so Hebrew should be fine, but I can't see that be extended to completely swapping out strings (which is what we'd want for the Chinese fails)

Jose you posted it a couple of hours after this thread with the same topic was raised and had replies already, so it was put in the dumpster as a dup thread.

Well hopefully they can slip the Urdu/Persian/Farsi variants into the Arabic application - that would be good.

Back in the day, José used to complain when people posted threads that were of a similar topic to something he thought about.

I thought the latest thinking on this (courtesy of fka200 in that thread) was that urdu/farsi shouldn't be a variant as it is not visibly similar.

if thats true... and if you take Giants comments as gospel about the chinese com being the best translit, then actually verisign ony f*cked up the Hebrew, as apposed to a catalog of errors.

It depends on how visually dissimilar it has to be. You be the judge:

کام vs كوم

Now compare that to the Chinese variants that were applied for:

點看 vs 点看 vs 奌看

I'd say there is more chance of confusion with the Arabic variants than the Chinese ones.

DomainNameWire is an unknown quantity at this point
Re: ICANN may let new TLD applicants modify their applications

Hey guys,

Andrew with DNW here.

I'm not sure if VeriSign has contacted ICANN about changing its applications. All the group would confirm to me is that some people had contacted it about fixing applications.

My guess is applications could be changed in a very limited set of circumstances.

Also, I know some in this community have collated a list of VeriSign's interesting selections (Hebrew) and omissions. I plan to publish this on DNW, but somehow the UTF8 got messed up on my blog recently. It appears there's a plugin to covert the database, but I may not get around to doing this until early next week.

Thanks

Re: ICANN may let new TLD applicants modify their applications

I don't see where Giant said it was the best version in Chinese. He's simply trying to make the best rationalization of a bad situation.

Alternatively you can probably just change the encoding of the article's page and use html entities for TLDs.
