New gTLD Update for Applicants (27 August 2012)

We have additional updates for applicants this week:
Applicant Update Webinar
The next Applicant Update Webinar is scheduled for Thursday, 6 September at 
12:00 UTC.  Topics will include status on Initial Evaluation, an update on 
batching/metering options, information on application comments, and new gTLD 
sessions we are planning for Toronto among other things.  If you are unable to 
join us for the live webinar, it will be recorded and posted to the webinar 
page (http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/announcements-and-media/webinars) on the new 
gTLD microsite.  The webinar is open to everyone but directed toward applicants 
in particular.  

Clarification Questions Pilot
The Clarification Questions Pilot is scheduled to kick off this week.  Notices 
have gone out to the 50 applications selected and participation is optional. 
Preliminary evaluation results show that a large number of applications require 
clarification.  The purpose of the pilot is to ensure that the questions 
evaluators ask are clear and applicants understand what information they are 
being asked to provide.  See attached [PDF, 80 KB].
Change Requests
We are finalizing the process to post application change requests.  A set of 
seven criteria have been created to evaluate each request and, if approved, the 
change will be reflected on the posting page of the microsite 
http://gtldresult.icann.org/application-result/applicationstatus ).  

New gTLD Microsite
The new gTLD microsite is getting a facelift.  We are working to refresh the 
microsite, making it a bit easier for you to find what you need.  A new feature 
we will add is an Applicants Corner.  This is a place where applicants can go 
to get important advisories as well as to check the status of various parts of 
the program still under development.  Keep an eye out for the microsite's new
