At least one new generic top-level domain applicant has requested a full $185,000 refund of its application fee, according to ICANN.

This exchange is from last night’s Twitter chat with ICANN executives:

It’s interesting that the answer was qualified with “since full refund offer”, suggesting there may have been more requests for refunds prior to ICANN’s decision to up the maximum refund from $180,000 to $185,000.

It’s not known which applicant asked for the refund or why.
