    While I don't agree with how Lemon got a (short standing) position on the board... the two members that are now on the board are:
    Nicole "Is on the board and stopped posting to the people that elected her" Murdoch
    Ned "Been gagged by the board" O'Meara

    auDA needs change - I can't make that happen but the elects certainly haven't been able to change things either.

    A truly ignorant statement.

    JackBeNimble represents supply side so no surprise on the sour tone.

    auDA is not working.

    auDA and some on the Board ARE muting certain Demand Directors and trying to get rid of them... People are keeping notes and records..

    Why do you think the Demand Class Director is still vacant after so long? Rigged

    Errm. I agree? auDA needs change...

    auDA may very well not want to fill the spot - the constitution will catch up with them there.

    You seem to be very knowledgeable about the inner workings of the Board.
    Where do you get this information from?
    Is this a fact or fiction.

    Ask auDA Management someone like Cameron Boardman, or Afilias or some Registars for confirmation....

    No use asking the auDA Board who are all muted completely. They are not allowed to talk to auDA Members or anyone anymore.

    3.2 Activities
    Without reducing the effect of clause 4, auDA will see to achieve its principal purposes as set out in clause 3.1 through:
    b. establishing mechanisms to ensure it is responsive and accountable to the supply and demand sides of the Australian Internet Community;
    c. the promotion of competition in the provision of domain name services;
    d. the promotion of fair trading;
    e. the promotion of consumer protection;

    f. adopting open and transparent procedures which are inclusive of all parties having an interest in use of the domain name system in Australia;
    g. ensuring its operations produce timely outputs which are relevant to the needs of the Australian Internet Community.
    (Amended by Special Resolution, 14 August 2006)"

    Considering it would be commercial confidential information I find it highly unlikely that this information would be available outside of auDA.
    So are you throwing numbers out of the blue or is it a fact.

    Every post is the same pro supply side stuff about how high costs are in Australia, the registry price may not be able to come down much, and how auDA shouldn't disclose the wholesale price.

    classic example,

    https://www.dntrade.com.au/threads/...ere-are-the-decreases.11719/page-2#post-90642

    So what what do you now make of the wholesale price more than halving?

    A fantastic win for consumers - assuming its all passed on etc.. etc..
    If the new registry can do it cheaper, GREAT! If it costs less for all, GREAT!

    I am simply unbiased.
    I am of the assumption that costs disclosed are correct and allow for a business to make profit at the same time.
    I am advocating change - for consumers and business alike.
    I am advocating transparency - lord knows we haven’t seen that from auDA.
    I am not simply one-eyed looking for the lowest cost deal - lowest cost is normally low for a reason - if the new registry is providing extra service at a lower cost then... GREAT!

    If they don't tell you that's your problem.

    I will. I will verify if this information is factual and if it is public.

    If it was public it be here with the links

    FYI The current .au wholesale prices are on the Public auDA website with the breakdown.... Wholesale Registry and auDA fees/ charges.

    If the price is 60% lower from Afilias what will you do then... anything? Ask for it to be public....nothing?

    "It’s not known what price Neustar bid for the continuation of the contract, but I expect it will have also offered a deep discount to its current rate."
