“God help us all…”

This is the chat log from today’s ICANN Webinar on the TMCH. If you missed it, no worries…you didn’t miss anything.

Here is the chat log from today’s ICANN Webinar with IBM. The webinar was billed as
“The Sunrise portion of the Trademark Database Sunrise and Claims (S&C) services went live on 9 August 2013. This webinar will cover an introduction to the TMDB web client, a brief overview of the S&C processes and the TMDB system, and a brief overview of the TMDB test function.”

There were over 50 participants on the call, although many reported struggles with the IBM Meeting software.

The slides were essentially aimed at anyone who has been living under a rock the past few years. They gave a 10 minute update on what ICANN has been up to. Then the up-coming schedule of webinars was presented.

In short, I wasted 20 minutes of my day. Here is the chat log during the call

I see a black box in the upper right of the slides. does anyone else see this?

James Gould to All 11:12 AM
Which audio is working, since audio is not working on my computer and the phone is playing music?

Tom Barrett to All 11:13 AM
@James, you need to install the plug-in and then re-enter the meeting

Craig Schwartz to All 11:13 AM
Yes, I see the black box too.

Sharon to All 11:13 AM
Yes – I see black box, too.

Tom Barrett to All 11:15 AM
That’s it?

Bret Fausett to All 11:16 AM
I hope the information behind the black box isn’t on the test.

Kelly to All 11:17 AM
Is anyone else using a mac struggling to install the java software?

Tom Barrett to All 11:17 AM
@Kelly, do’t worry…you did not miss anything

Francisco Obispo to All 11:17 AM

Kelly to All 11:17 AM
On firefox 22

James Gould to All 11:17 AM
Can you go through it again, since many did not see anything?

James Gould to All 11:18 AM
The conference bridge is still playing music for me.

Janet Fu to All 11:18 AM
I can’t hear anything

Ashley Roberts to All 11:18 AM
can you please explain how registries and registrars obtain their welcome packs and tokens for the TMDB system?

Bret Fausett to All 11:19 AM
I’m confused. I thought the subject was “This webinar will cover an introduction to the TMDB web client, a brief overview of the S&C processes and the TMDB system, and a brief overview of the TMDB test function.”

KP to All 11:19 AM
I can’t hear anything too.

Alex Mayrhofer to All 11:19 AM
I’m missing more information about the testing process and test function as well. Maybe IBM could advise which webinar would contain this information.

Bret Fausett to All 11:19 AM
wtf?

Bret Fausett to All 11:20 AM
That’s it?

April Forsyth to All 11:20 AM
Are they not reading these?

Alex Mayrhofer to All 11:20 AM
Seems like Chat is not considered???

Tom Barrett to All 11:20 AM

James Gould to All 11:20 AM

Ashley Roberts to All 11:20 AM

Bret Fausett to All 11:20 AM
