How many .tel developers are left?

.tel never had many active developers, but the list is getting very short:

Telfeeder
TelSAP
Digitrad
Jeepa
Telsters
Dottel
Telnic
TELcp

Telmasters
Telnames

I wouldn't really classify Telnames as a "developer", being wholly owned by the registry Telnic, and anyway even if you do it appears they are not intending to enhance their http://YourBusiness.tel template to any significant degree.

So that just leaves Marl Kolb from Telmasters in your list !

Actually there is one more developer to add to the list - Dan Prather - who has a new .tel service due for launch at http://www.TelPowered.com

When is this going live Dan ?

TELcp announced few months ago that the service will stay online, but because of the canceled Telnic roadmap no further development will happen anymore.
As it is Telnic policy not to react to any bad news or feedback or questions on development, no comment by Telnic was made on this.

TELcp also announced that they intend to create a FREE .TEL COMPETITOR (*) in the next few months - using the experience they have gained with their .tel operation.

Be interesting to see what they come up with - they certainly have a track record of .tel development to base their new product on.

* FREE = Basic level of product.

Does Mark not feel lonely as the last supporter? I feel sorry for him! I don't want to criticize, but it's very sad that .tel comes to the end. Only Telnic could revive .tel, but Telnic is doing absolutely nothing.

Only a handful of developers could program an incredible product out of Tel, but Telnic just don't want to do it!

Perhaps this is the reason for the lack of activity by Telnic ?

Dan, I thought the original live date for http://www.TelPowered.com
was the end of January - any update on the situation - and what you will be offering ?

Tried to look dropping TELs through third-party services, but one of them - dottel_net is dead. And the name of another one I have forgotten. Seriously. And now try to find it, but can't. Do anybody remember it's name?

We know even more facts from the past:

Every beginning of the year the registrations numbers are going down strongly:

Dottel_net and teldomains_co are not working now.
***
At their last period of work, when services yet were working, they were not good because, as I understood, one of them was tuned to show dropping domains with a one-two days delay, and another one to show not dropping premium TEL-domains. May be, owners of services wanted to reserve premium TELs for themselves.

May be anybody knows service where it is possible to look for real-time and not censured daily TEL-drops?

http://teldomains.co/?go=drops is empty now of dropping .tel domains (the links on the left may still work ?) - but interestingly Mark Kolb has a big banner there for the NEW gTLDs which leads to a page at http://teldomains.co/buy-new-gTLDs

Maybe Mark's had enough of providing free (or very low cost) tools to a rapidly dwindling .tel marketplace and needs to look after his own business prospects - if so who could blame him ?

Mark's tools (for subdomain .tels) are very good and I suggested on more than one occasion that Telnic really needed to buy Mark out and incorporate the tools into the Telnic Control Panel.

As usual my words fell on deaf ears - not surprising since it turned out subsequently Telnic decided to no longer actively market the subdomain version of .tel !
