A Sad Day...

Two classic symbol domains will be forever deleted today.

♙.com
♟.com

The black and white pawns. They were never mine, but I believe they were originally registered in 2003 or 2004.

Just wanted to take a moment to wish these guys the best of luck as they enter the world of non-existence.

The worst part of it all is this never had to happen if the registrant would have just paid the $8.
Unless forced, I'll never let this happen to my black smiley ☻.com. Nice to see his cousin is out there still going strong as well ☺.com.

2086 visitors, 42 clicks, $2.16.

I can only imagine what it would make at ParkingCrew!

I view it as one of those "history of the internet" type things so I'll keep it as long as I'm able.

I let that one expire. The fact that the traffic wasn't making any cash was no longer worth the renewal for me :-/. Also let some others go.

I have no idea how to get a full unicode font for windows. Sorry.
See if you can find a font that includes Myanmar script in it.

7. When a preexisting name requires a registry to make transitional exception to any of these Guidelines, the terms of that action will also be made readily available online, including the timeline for the resolution of such transitional matters. The excepted registrations themselves are, however, not part of this documentation. At the end of the transitional period, code points that are prohibited by IDNA2008 will not be permitted even by exception.

I thought the thread starter broke up with his GF.
If so, it should be a happy day, and it means he can go hunt another sugar
