Dear BC Members,

Please find below an ICANN announcement regarding the TAS' reopening.

Kind Regards,

Statement by Akram Atallah, COO

21 May 2012

The TLD Application System, or TAS, has reopened. All registered 
applicants can now log in, review and submit their applications.

The system will remain open until 23:59 GMT/UTC on 30 May 2012. 
Consistent with our previous practice and to allow the application 
window to open as soon as possible, two-hour maintenance windows have 
been scheduled as follows: 22 May at 16:30 GMT/UTC, 25 May at 23:00 UTC, 
and 29 May at 22:00 UTC.

Applicants are encouraged to review "/Top Things Users Should Know When 
TAS Reopens,/" posted on the new gTLD microsite at 
http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/applicants/tas/top-ten. The document 
provides advice on logging into and completing applications, submitting 
wire transfers, and contacting customer service with any issues users 
might encounter.

During the last few weeks, we have fixed the technical glitch that 
caused us to take the system offline. Also, to address user feedback, we 
have improved the overall system performance and the HTML preview function.

In our continuing review of the system logs and system traffic, we 
determined that in two instances, a single file might have been 
temporarily unavailable to an applicant. Full access to those two files 
has been restored. ICANN notified the affected users.

We recognize and regret the inconvenience caused by this glitch and the 
delayed closing of the application window.
