List of disappointments about the Telnames service

Post by Sunrise on Sat 29 Jun 2013, 7:09 am

  • A website without subdomains is not a serious offer.
  • After downloading the Android or iPhone app it can't be used unless the user pays £24.95.
  • The picture gallery allows only pictures with very small resolution.
  • The length of text is extremely limited.
  • The logo size is way too small.
  • Telnic once promised a global .tel directory, but it can't be found anywhere.
  • After the Telnames website is published, it can be found only for non-relevant search terms.

If Telnic could find a solution for these problems, Telnames would have a great offer.

The biggest disappointment by far is that Telnic excluded all existing customers from any further development.

The only disappointments with Telnames are the lack of understanding by the public, and the lack of a single point of contact (directory) for everyone's single point of contact on a single page (Telnames).

Quote:

"The days of needing to remember several telephone numbers, numerous VoIP or instant message identities and other points of contact for our social and professional networks are over. By leveraging innovative DNS (Domain Name System) technology, the .tel domain will allow anyone to publish and control, in real time, how they can be reached," - Kash Mahdavi, CEO, Telnic.

.tel is simply a single place to start for all the addresses of a single entity, like a White/Yellow Pages listing, only better. (Not a website with sudomains, duh)

Example 1: Before Telnames http://www.yell.com/biz/the-red-lion-inn-canterbury-766775/

Example 2: After Telnames http://theredlion.tel/



Now if they would just make a REAL place for the better listings to be found, the REAL incentive for a Telname - the Telnames Directory!

I think that the public understood very well the essence of .tels and not like them.

Public wants more: wants full sites and maybe pay less. For example about.me offers for free a web page fully customizable (and a personal domain for a fee), weebly.com offers for free a full multipage site (and the ability to use your own domain for free).


Question: how much useful can be a local .tel directory, only UK addresses, of only 10-20,000 contacts.

"I think that the public understood very well the essence of .tels and not like them."

Because Telnic has never seriously followed through on what they promised:

1. Single point of contact
2. Global directory

"Question: how much useful can be a local .tel directory, only UK addresses, of only 10-20,000 contacts."

Yellow Pages and Facebook started out with directories that were not categorized and only had hundreds of listings, not even thousands, and now millions of listings for each of them.

How useful ?  Can you easily find the .tel of the forum members ?

Of course not, and a Telnames directory would be much more useful than a Google search for other Telnames, that's the point of a directory before anything else, just to find the Telnames of a few of your family, friends, or businesses to start.

You couldn't do it with Google or Telpages today, so why would anyone care if they can't find something or someone as easy as Facebook or Yellow Pages regardless of how many are in it ?

I disagree - "Joe Public" doesn't know about .tels - they are simply nowhere to be found in the real world !
