Dear Mary, Dear Colleagues,

Thanks for putting together the survey. I believe this may somewhat help 
collect more responses, but would like to reiterate a comment I made in the 
chat (although it got no traction at the time, but my audio was limited) 
during the last call.

My organization, Afnic, is one of the few who submitted a response to the 
survey so far. We did it on behalf of one of our clients, the City of Paris. 
I have significant concerns about reaching out directly to registries, for 
the following reasons :

-          The questions are extremely technical, and most of our clients 
would be completely lost

-          There is no clear benefit for registries to  invest time in 
answering this survey. The TMCH is often “dealt with” by a partner / 

I understand the need to collect data from registries, but would suggest 
either of two options :

1)      Consider that the low level of responses is an information in 
itself, and leave it at that.

2)      Reach out to registry service providers rather than registries to 
collect more meaningful data.

Just my two cents as a respondent to the survey.

Dear all,

As requested during the Working Group call held earlier this week, staff has 
put all the questions that were sent to the Registries Stakeholder Group by 
the TMCH Data Gathering Sub Team into a survey format. You can preview and 
test it here: 

Please note that while we have retained almost all of the text of the 
original questions, in a few places we have rearranged their order or 
converted a question into a statement inviting comment. However, we do not 
believe we have changed any of the scope or intent of the questions, and we 
have not otherwise edited, deleted or added any questions.

Also as agreed on the call, staff will work with the co-chairs to transmit 
this survey to specific registry operators (especially those offering 
blocking mechanism services who have not yet responded to the original 
solicitation for feedback) and via the registry members of this Working 

Thanks and cheers
