Yeah, this company/guy totally beat the system somehow. Everything is so screwed up. I've pretty much threw the virtual towel in for now.

Could have been registered in the current "priority" period, and then sold.

Impossible to register because 不動産.com is blocked!!!

someone is gaming the system or the launch has already started. Screw-up or intentional?

The launch was said to start 16.5.2016

Re: WOW... How did this happen???

there must be a ton of registrants out there that didn't get the memo.

the com owner of トラベル (travel) didn't spend $13.99 to reg the コム
now anyone can for ~$200 + $13.99

I notice some smart cookies out there too: 地図 (map) as we know is variant blocked in .com and doesn't exist. But someone grabbed the コム

Now that one DOES look very suspicious!

Could be... that is a "reserved" domain to be put up for auction.

I am looking into this, right now.

Re: WOW... How did this happen???

Now Name.com claims that the launch is 15.05

https://www.name.com/domain/search-4...ewup.xn--tckwe

We got the wrong launch dates or the system allowed registrations before it should have.

Tucows didn't participate in priority reg. The others were variant blocked. How did registrars get away with this?

Re: WOW... How did this happen???

Do all of these names have reg dates after 0.00 UTC on 5/15. The priority was over by then.

I imagine if the .com was not priority regged, than the variant was landrush regged w/out a problem

I doubt it because the owner of the variant does not seem to be related to the newly registered variant.

There is no variant blocking from .com over to .コム

The variant that wil be regged in .コム first will block the other
.コム variant.

The question is why did the landrush start before the official launch? I suppose many(including myself) had made some pre-registrations for a non-refundable $200. Now these will be submitted 12-24 hours after the launch =worthless.

Glad that I didn't order many.

Anyone who had made a pre-order some days before never had a real chance to get a sought-after domain despite paying $200 for it.

Verisign will get a lot of money from pre-regs that never result in a domain registration but they had made people pay lot just for that right.

Another slap in the face of IDN investors.

If there were multiple landrush applicants for the same name they were supposed to go to auction at the end of landrush, so no names should be registered after 5/14 but before GA is my understanding.

This launch makes me think we are more like the useful idiots who finance the system and then see the domains being allocated to someone else.
