Afilias whois mistake to increase unneeded domain complaints
https://www.domainer.com.au/please-explain-this-complaint-auda-synergy/ Before Afilias

After Afilias.. Do they want to increase complaints, cost Registrants money and wasted time and add auDA staff workload?

They be getting loads of "complaints".

"This person isn't using this name"
"I want to register this name"
"The owner wants $500"
"I don't like the site and it could have a virus"
"It's squatting when someone else registers it"

Now I wonder who's legal firm can help dealing with the complaint?

I have messaged auDA Directors Tim Connell, Erhan Karabardak and staf member Mark Bouck at auDA to make sure this error is fixed.

Mark Bouck was quick to acknowledge the issue, said it will be flagged internally and with Afilias which is fantastic of him.

Did auDA or anyone on the Board tell Afilias to add the auDA complaint form to the Whois? That is a huge mistake.

Let's track to see if it is removed and when.

Yeah, the statuses are really getting on my nerves now. They don't make any sense.
An expired domain only shows.
Status: serverHold
Status: serverUpdateProhibited
Nothing about being expired.

but seriously guys ! you can not believe the effort that has gone into this, bruces leadership and knowledge has been at 200% through all this, every time i've seen him its like looking at the spinner wheels of a swiss watch above his head, just confidence and precision.

i have to say you are just bitching about some things that are not vital and will of course through process be fixed, YES, report them......thank you, as beta testing is GREAT.

Subject: .au Whois bug ..More auDA eligibility complaints coming due to mistake of Afilias whois set up? XXXXX1111.com.au WHOIS, DNS, & Domain Info - DomainTools
To: engagement@auda.org.au
Cc: Tim Connell <tim@xxxx>, Erhan Karabardak <erhan.karabardak@xxxxx>

Why have the auDA complaint form on the new Afilias .au public whois?

They will need to remove it ASAP from what shows on whois. "
Tim will you have the auDA complaint form removed from whois and ask who at auDA asked that they add it to the new .au public whois?

The rest of the world has moved forwards and auDA is going backwards..

Most countries extensions now have whois privacy by Default ... Hey look at what auDA did with auda.ltd and using whois privacy!!

Well this shit happens when the Board and management have no plans to forewarn the public of process or a plan to provide the public with up to date announcements about progress [be seen to action commitments] - its like the train stopped, now what...waiting, waiting, waiting....Oh Look, the doors are locked, the air-con is off, and its peak-hour compression....waiting, waiting....why did the engine stop? WTF is going on around here....

Can anyone tell me why the status of domains has gone from OK to serverRenewProhibted. I'm seeing it with a bunch of domains. What does this mean? Is auda in a legal dispute with the ATO?
"This status code indicates your domain's Registry Operator will not allow your registrar to renew your domain. It is an uncommon status that is usually enacted during legal disputes or when your domain is subject to deletion."

Do AUDA actually publish how many domain complaints they deal with on a yearly basis or does anyone have any idea?

I know that only a couple have ever gone to the Rrp in its history, showing they don’t understand their own policy
