Hi Eduardo,

On May 6 I filed 6 complaints for ZFA requests that had been unprocessed for 
over a week (with a maximum  of 7 weeks).

On May 10 two of the ZFA requests were approved, without ICANN having sent 
the manual confirmation yet of the complaint having been forwarded to the 
contracted party (the email that links the ticket number to the TLD).

There also was no email about the ticket having been closed because of the 
registry having demonstrated compliance (by belatedly having granted 
access). That means these two got approved without the ICANN complaint 
system even getting into gear...

After 10 days the other four complaints are all still missing the email 
confirming the manual step indicating the complaint had been forwarded to 
the contracted party. And of course, no ZFA yet.

TLD ".citadel" is one of those four, doing no better on the second request 
than the first previous one. I had canceled that one and re-applied after it 
had been ignored for 16 months.

ICANN, can you tell us how long it should take from a complaint being filed 
to the complaint being forwarded to the contracted party? Is there any 
reason why that step is not automated?

    Meanwhile I wrote to compliance requesting that the extant complaints be
    closed...  I hope that happens.

    Yes, the email notices from the ZFA form have zero content, and should
    not be sent, I now just delete them unread.  Only once the compliance
    department processes the filed complaint should there be an email 
    Everything in the email from the ZFA form was already conveyed when the
    website completed form submission.
