===DotGreen WithdrawalWithdrawl===
The DotGreen Community, Inc announced on Oct 11, 2013 that the company withdrew their application for the .green string. The startup was facing a 4-way private or ICANN auction, which it stated was not in the financial means nor in the interests of the company.<ref>[ DotGreen Calls it Quits, Domain Incite] Retrieved 13 Nov 2013</ref>
The Representative of the Czech Republic issued a [[GAC]] Early Warning to all applicants but [[The DotGreen Community, Inc.]]. The warning system is noted as a strong recommendation on behalf of national governments to the [[ICANN Board]] that a given TLD application should be denied as it stands. Applicants are encouraged to work with objecting GAC members.<ref>[ GAC Early Warning,] Retrieved 27 Nov 2012</ref>
The Cezh Czech warning is of the belief that none of the other 3 applicants are prepared to act in the global public interest with the .green TLD, and can not aid and be a part of the green, sustainable movement as the [[The DotGreen Community, Inc.]]. The warning regards the latter's application as highly respected and widely supported, and the others as seemingly disinterest attempts by portfolio applicants. "These 3 applicants are applying for .green as a TLD string amongst many others they are are applying for. They are probably less prepared than Dot Green Community, Inc. to play an active participatory role in the Green movement of community in either a local or global manner. They are not recognized by leaders in the Green Movement, as evidence that there were no positive comments of supports issued for their applications.<ref>[ Green CZ,]Retrieved 27 Nov 2012</ref>
