Wow! Telnic really knows what users want. That must be the reason for the overwhelming success!
The approach from Telnames isn't automatically wrong.
From the users perspective it's comfortable to have all information on one page without the need to navigate forward and back.
The problem is that Telnames is fighting against an uncountable number of competitors and almost all of them are offering sub domains.
The internet was created on different principles and more than 25 years later Telnames wants to change the user habits.
That's a very difficult undertaking and no surprise Telnames struggles with it.
But it doesn't mean that Telnames is wrong. It only needs an inconceivable amount of effort to succeed.
Of course it was wrong to sell a Telname for a premium price, but luckily this mistake was corrected this month.

Certainly one of the main reasons why Telnic doesn't get rid of the negative press.
Maybe it would be wise not to exclude those people who invested the most time, money and mind in this idea (outside of Telnic).

@moonlight

Wait, do you mean that some  individuals ( how come ?) early shareholders/investors , or stakeholders , are members of this forum ?

I've no idea. But one thing should be easy to recognize: shutting down the communication with people who are used to support Telnic's idea was a big mistake.
Another example: this forum was founded a few days after Telnic shut down its own forum. We know Telnic doesn't like Teltalk (what is very sad). But would this forum exist otherwise?
I look forward to the day when members spread more positive messages. An exchange of information with Telnic would be the most effective measure for it.

@TELwax

From what I can read here, I believe that most forum members are domain investors and former .tel developers.

What kind of information should be shared as long Telnic refuses to develop .tel?

Telnames is selling very few domains nowadays. Could it happen that Telnic takes a second attempt to pro .tels if no improvement will happen during the next months / years?

As long a Telname can't be found on the Internet Telnames can sell them for $1 and businesses still won't be interested in a Telname.
Exactly the point.

How many people would have a Face Page without the Facebook being promoted?

How many people would buy a Yellow Page without the Yellow Pages Book being promoted?

Just a few, not the MASSES, that's how many.

GET A CLUE TELNIC/TELNAMES !!!!

Happily for their stomach and liver , it was certainly not their own money, and they might had made write-offs since ! but some individual investors did certainly pay some real money somewhere for that luxury journey  ...
If the sense of a game was simply to launder money, then the same scenario could be continued after the firstly invested money will end at year 2016 or so.

And in a case if it is really so, then until they will have profit from playing this their game, then the same management will continue to rule the company and any development of TEL will follow.

Not a good perspective waits for us. Here only a chance could change something, for example, the natural death of somebody of them and etc. - which event would allow arriving of new people to rule the company.

@maxi

You are too cynical. There is not the slightest reason to believe that something unlawful is going on.
And fluctuation is a very normal process in the business world. For this, no one has to die.
