Would you have ever registered a .tel if you had known the business practices of Telnic before?

Post by Sunrise on Wed 23 Jan 2013, 5:20 pm

To refresh the memory of what has happened so far:
The development for Telnic was always very slow.
In 2011 development speed was reduced strongly again.
Telpages and Telfriends have never been developed.
In 2012 Telnic founded their own registrar Telnames, launched a new design and restricted it to new customers.
At the same time Telnic locked their forum.
Telnic refused to make any statements about Telnames.
Telnic don't response to customer requests and complaints.
On rare occasions Telnic give a feedback that customer wishes won't be considered.
In 2013 Telnic increased the price for Telnames dramatically.

Sunrise, you act like a bitchy ex-girlfriend. Telnic has dumped you, and you can’t change it. Move on!

What we can observe here is a very normal process in business development. Venturers want to see fast cash and come a cropper. Real businessmen think ahead, see the long-term potential / make a plan for a long period of time and will make the money in the long run. That is what Telnic is doing.

I would still buy into tel as I'm into the concept, people still use the banking industry even though they've proven themselves far worse and in some cases via UK banks operating in the US laundering money for terrorists and drug dealers as a matter of profit making, so you see the real money is in banking and trading, if you can put that into a product that people use to advertise themselves and network with others you'll rake in profits, I see no reason why telnic would not want us to have a virtual wallet not one of these rubbish app wallets or phone wallets, a proxy wallet that is a fundamental part of the service. If you want to retain customers and make sure they can always pay for their tel like with all domain companies you put in an (account) wallet so credits can flow in and be stored for later payment against the "domains" renewal.. but in our case we should be able to trade it tel to tel aka what is considered account to account in the domaining registrar world just like we trade domains! account to account.
.
Them having the money while we trade virtual credits allows them to put all the money in smart investments to cream profits off of it which is what their investors/venturers want, the smart money is in banking but these days the new smart money will be in alternative banking as confidence in the main banking sector is at an all time low before a future crash that will wipe out thousands of small businesses that telnames purports to support.
.
If you truly want to support small business and are proactive with your service to offer a degree of safety, give them a virtual business trading wallet along side their "contact simple solution single page" and back it up with buying gold with the money we put in so they're always protected in the event of a major banking crash / local currency devaluation.
.
Currency wars have started in the real world and now more than ever the banking sector is not safe for small or even large business as well as regular savers who get nothing and now expect nothing but need somewhere other than under the mattress to store their money, tel should step in for us and give us a http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_economy because yes we're in the real world but the virtual economy is a driving factor online for growth and prosperity which is what telnames should be aiming for to retain customers.
.
Good customers (businesses) are profitable customers, bad customers are bankrupt.
.
A virtual economy (or sometimes synthetic economy) is an emergent economy existing in a virtual persistent world, usually exchanging virtual goods in the context of an Internet game. People enter these virtual economies for recreation and entertainment rather than necessity, which means that virtual economies lack the aspects of a real economy that are not considered to be "fun" (for instance, players in a virtual economy often do not need to buy food in order to survive, and usually do not have any biological needs at all). However, some people do interact with virtual economies for "real" economic benefit.
.
Virtual property is a label that can refer to any resource that is controlled by the powers-that-be, including virtual objects, avatars, or user accounts.
.
Our tels are virtual property and the service you are offering which could be almost anything brings trade regardless of what telnic/telnames wants to imagine what a virtual contact card is used for.
Rivalry: Possession of a resource is limited to one person or a small number of persons within the virtual world's game mechanics.
.
Reselling domains?, groups of keyword domains?
.

Persistence: Virtual resources persist across user sessions. In some cases, the resource exists for public view even when its owner is not logged into the virtual world.
.
Hello? it's an always on 24/7 contact card, and advertisement of your virtual resources of sorts
.
Interconnectivity: Resources may affect or be affected by other people and other objects. The value of a resource varies according to a person's ability to use it for creating or experiencing some effect.
.
Secondary markets: Virtual resources may be created, traded, bought, and sold. Real-world assets (typically money) may be at stake.
Value added by users: Users may enhance the value of virtual resources by customizing and improving upon the resource.

And if you haven't figured it out yet, tel is an "augmented reality virtual economy" of trading real world and virtual goods and services that will eventually be a fundamental part of every mobile device (glasses, pads, phones) based on the DNS lookups.

so its not a website? ;-)

Actually, on a serious note.. what do you think about the recent telnames coupon/passbook integration specifically pushing to the current userbase of half a billion apple mobile idevices?

Telnic made a very smart move:
About 90 % of Telnic customers are domainers and they brought nothing good to .tel!
Telnic cut all support for these customers.
Instead only real businesses at Telnames get support now.
That is what will generate value for .tel!

it would be much smarter to support all customers including the network of 180 registrars
not only domainers are at telnic and even domainers would publish domains in case they get a webpage comparable to telnames

Moonlight, as I understood from your post, you are not a domainer. So, if you are not a domainer and you own a TEL, then you are a developer, right?

Could you please show as your developed TELs then?

I'm a domainer as probably almost all members here, and I don't have a problem with admitting it.
I'll start developing my domains as soon the right tools will be available.
Until then I can stay patient without complaining and without talking .tel down.
Telnames is a big improvement for all of us.
Now we only have to wait until the same will be realized for Telnic.
If Telnic hopes it will be realized by a connected registrar, then I will wait for it.
But the more we complain, the later it will happen.
