It was an unfortunate choice to name it "controller". Many are confused by the choice. Might have been a better choice to use "manager" or "custodian". I know it is too late now to change it. Terminology matters!!!

@makoto
I pushed for "operator"

That would have also been a better choice. @makoto

@Arachnid I notice that from about 11am EST to about 3pm EST, I get a lot of reverted register transactions. I've been trying to debug it, and I think it might be because I'm using Infura. The theory is that I'm either getting an innacurate "nonce" count due to the distributed nature of Infura or my commit transactions have not fully populated from infuria to the blockchain due to heavier loads, and so the contract fails because the commit has not fully made the rounds. You had mentioned at one point that the downside of Infura is the distributed nature and possibly being a bit out of sync or delayed at times. These transactions are not failing due to any real contract issue, I can rerun them later and they will finish. Ok, thanks for any thoughts.

@Arachnid
@chrisschaub An incorrect nonce would make it impossible to submit the transaction, not lead to a revert.
If you're talking about reveal transactions, you can examine the code to see the reasons they can fail - usually it's because you revealed too early or too late, or were revealing a commitment that wasn't valid (because it was never submitted, for instance, or was already revealed)

Hey everyone! We are having our 3rd annual ENS Workshop later this year and would love for you to attend. It'll be on October 7th (day before Devcon) in Osaka near the Devcon conference site. We'll be discussing the current state and future of ENS. You have to submit an application to attend by the end of the month.

Here's more info: https://medium.com/the-ethereum-name-service/ens-workshop-applications-are-now-open-f46db6c63384

Hey, over at https://reserve.ens.domains/ you can't know the expected format of the _ens TXT record without having to click on the check button which in turn doesn't mention exactly what the value it got from the TXT record, thus you can end up a lambo which I'm currently stuck in which either the value your system has is cached (which sucks since I have a long TTL) or the value I have is wrong (which doesn't seem to be the case).
A display of what the value you got + putting the expected value based on the currently selected account in wallet could be very helpful both for debugging and registering!
Many thanks

Hi there. Is it possible for the ens to point to a http url?
Nick Johnson
@Arachnid
@Magicking Thanks for the feedback! Unfortunately the reservation period is nearly over, so there's not a lot of time to integrate it.
@sudeepb02 Sort of - there's support for text records,and you can put URLs in there - but your browser won't resolve them. We do have tentative support for IPFS integration, though, which Metamask and others support
Sudeep Biswas
@sudeepb02
Thanks @Arachnid for the info. Is there any possible workaround for this?

I'm having issue with transferring the controller of an ENS subdomain to another address, the "Set" button is grayed out saying you can only transfer the controller if you are currently the controller or registrant, which I am. So I am basically stuck as I cannot transfer the name to another address
lamchaulee
@Iamchauncey_lee_twitter

@Iamchauncey_lee_twitter controller has a power to set resolver, address, etc. registrant has a power to set the controller.

Thank you for detailed explaination. I find I can still set address for an ens after I transfered the registrant to another address, so I transfered both registant and controler to the new owner.

I see ENS deadline changed to Aug 17. Why not mentioned on reserve.ens.domains? Is this correct? Thank you
What time August 17?

@MicahZoltu
So my name request was rejected and I would like to better understand why prior to filing an official appeal. It appears the reason was because I don't host a root website at zoltu.com. It strikes me as somewhat arbitrary that I must have a website at zoltu.com, when I completely dominate all search engines for that term, and it was randomly generated and chosen (years ago) specifically because it had no collisions with anyone on the internet (all 7 Billion people!).
This message was deleted
I also owned an LLC under that name, am an active member of the Ethereum community under that name, have a logo under that name, have multiple products (some defunct) under that name, an npm and GitHub organization under that name (which is mostly Ethereum projects), etc.
A name couldn't possibly be more attached to me than Zoltu is... yet because I don't have a www.zoltu.com with a templated about us page I have to fight others for it?
Micah Zoltu
@MicahZoltu
Side note: the situation is particularly unfortunate because people who applied and are rejected have shown their hand, and can now be trolled at public auction, since the applications were all unsealed. I applied initially thinking that the only cause for rejection would be obvious scam and a contest between potential owners, so I calculated the risk as low. I was unaware that "you aren't popular enough" or "you don't have a traditional website" to be deciding factors.
I suppose I should include an actual question, not just a rant:
Was I rejected just because I don't have a website running at zoltu.com?
Micah Zoltu
@MicahZoltu
Hmm, actually maybe the rejection email is just missing a comma and it is just a misunderstanding...
Your name was rejected because the name you claimed has a commonly understood meaning in the Ethereum or wider Internet community
"I claimed the name had a commonly understood meaning" or "the name has a commonly understood meaning"?

@Laramie43ip
I'm looking for some direction on how to build a config file so I can import Eth accounts for use with Ethereal, or (even better) a keystore file with multiple accounts. Anyone have a link or other reference?
Nick Johnson
@Arachnid
@MicahZoltu It was declined because we couldn't find any connection between the site you claimed with and your wider identity; we have no way of telling that zoltu.com is actually owned by you.
If you can upload a gist on the github account 'zoltu' with the claimed address, I'd be happy to approve the claim.
Scratch that; I can see that the 'Zoltu' org has only one member, you. Send me the address you want to claim the name with, so we can be sure we have the correct one, and I'll approve the claim.
Jim McDonald
@mcdee
@Laramie43ip if your keystores are geth or parity they should show up with ethereal account list. What do you want to do with the .eth domains?
Micah Zoltu
@MicahZoltu

@Arachnid Ah, I see. So I think I just mis-interpreted that first sentence. I read it as

Your name was rejected because you claimed it had a commonly understood meaning in the Ethereum/Internet community.

It sounds like that was supposed to be read more like:

Your name was rejected because:

  • it has a commonly understood meaning in the Ethereum/wider Internet community
(sorry if my commentary above came off as a bit ranty, I got the email late at night and was super tired when I read it, I probably responded too hastily and too aggressively)
Nick Johnson
@Arachnid
No worries. :)
I still need you to send me the address in question so I can be sure the claim wasn't submitted by an impostor, though.
Micah Zoltu
@MicahZoltu
Yeah, understood. I'm trying to figure out what address I used previously. :P
Laramie43ip
@Laramie43ip
@mcdee Thanks, Jim. I'm interested in transferring a bunch from the old registrar to the new one. I
I'm also working on a website that will allow politicians in the US to accept Eth donations. Ethereal would be useful for subdomaining, e.g., ElizabethWarren.citycouncil.eth But, the immediate issue is that my keystore files are all on another machine. Is it a simple matter of copying them and placing them in the proper directory? Does ordering matter? Thanks for the help.

Hi ENS team, wanted to reach out from the AirSwap team and to see if there was someone I could contact regarding possible coordination for an ENS integration.

nrhirsch
@nrhirsch
I just want to go on record by saying I have a three letter .com domain for over 20 years but will not register it as a .eth domain due to the price being over 50 times the annual cost of what it costs to have it in the .com registrar so instead i registered it with a 6 letter including the "name" plus "com" = 6 letters for about same price as .com. There is no good reason to charge over $600 annually for a 3 letter domain if you've owned the .com for awhile.
Rocky Fikki
@rfikki
The issue is even more problematic then the price. If ENS is now a third party/entity/non-for-profit controlled project, why does it continue to receive preferential treatment as a go-ethereum project in this gitter room/channel? Why was it listed in github under the ethereum sub-directory which would connotate it as an official ethereum supported project. Why has it as a third party non-ethereum foundation controlled project been added to the official ethereum go implementation code? Just curious?
Nick Johnson
@Arachnid
@rfikki The channel is a holdover from the first early attempts at a name registry. Migrating to a new channel would be a major hassle. I don't really see it as "preferential treatment" or a big problem, personally.
I would prefer to use a gitter room under the ensdomains org; it'd be more discoverable. But it seems impractical to migrate everyone over.
@nrhirsch Just as a point of comparison, go to your favorite registrar and type in a 3 letter name and take a look at what most registrars are charging for them these days.
Micah Zoltu
@MicahZoltu
@Arachnid I didn't think there were any 3 letter names left for .com?
Nick Johnson
@Arachnid
There aren't, I was suggesting looking at other TLDs.
anders
@tabcat
yea ive seen a lot of 3 letter domains being around 700$-1500$ on registrars. not sure if that was annually but id have to guess
Jim McDonald
@mcdee

@Laramie43ip you should be able to just copy the keystores over; as long as you retain the directory structure they should work.
Migrating multiple domains you can either write individual commands, e.g.

ethereal ens migrate --passphrase=secret --domain=mydomain1.eth
ethereal ens migrate --passphrase=secret --domain=mydomain2.eth
...

or you can supply multiple domains on the single command, e.g.:

ethereal ens migrate --passphrase=secret --domains='mydomain1.eth&&mydomain2.eth'

There isn't a lot of difference between them, so whichever you prefer
