ICANN improves public comment system

Finally, it’s up to 2005 standards.

ICANN has improved its public commenting system. Rather than sending an email to a comment address similar to an old bulletin board system, you can now comment kind of like you do on a blog.

The downside is that submitters will need to create an ICANN account. This might dissuade some people from commenting, and it will certainly negate the impact of third-party comment submission tools.

According to ICANN, the new system’s improvements include:

  • Submissions available in search results
  • Number of submissions published to individual proceedings available in real time
  • Filtered search by category or date range
  • Improved keyword(s) search for proceedings, submissions, and files
  • Email subscription alerts for individual proceedings and their submissions
  • New guided form submission feature
  • Submission management feature allowing individual users or ICANN groups to track their submissions
  • New consolidated Other Public Consultations pages to provide the community with a central location for other ICANN community surveys or public consultations that fall outside the Public Comment process
  • Improved layout and user experience

Now, if ICANN would just bring back the third-party MyICANN tool. The organization nixed it a couple of years ago and has replaced it with something that appears to be built in-house. The new tool doesn’t surface nearly as much new information as the old one. A cynic might say that’s the point.
