    Should be announced to the whole site via PM or to email address - that way response would be greater than just the forumites view.

    That is a good idea. How did you do that? 😉

    If the number of votes cast exceeds 50% of the number of subscribers, will the rules will be changed?

    I partly agree. Only subscribers are allowed to vote so there's no point sending emails and PMs to all the non-subscribers.

    Also why didn't they announce the votes in the Announcements Forum? It seems the ideal place. If they didn't want a debate about the proposals there, then they could have just made the announcement and then closed the thread.

    The problem of just creating a thread in the General Forum is that it quickly gets buried under all the rubbish in that forum. In less than a day, the vote threads have already slipped half way down the second page. Who bothers to read anything which isn't on page 1?

    I suppose we'll just have to keep bumping the threads whilst the votes are open.

    That's impossible! Only subscribers are allowed to vote.

    I think there about 2000 subscribers and most don't visit the forums and won't know about the votes. On previous occassions only about 200 or 300 people have bothered to vote. I doubt that the figure will be any higher over this issue.

    Perhaps, but those 200 to 300 have probably debated the issue and/or read about the issue and/or given the matter some actual thought before voting.

    Instead of voting for something because it sounds nice.

    Glad you didn't say that you'd eat your hat...?

    This morning the numbers of votes cast was:

    Timeout options 1237
    Immunity on vacation 1190

    EDIT2: Some votes are open to all, not just subscribers.

    Yes, I got that wrong!

    It's great that so many people have voted. That PM which was sent out to all the subscribers advising them of the vote, has proved to be a huge success.

    No worries.

    I got 0.1p per vote for my suggestion.

    You'll soon have enough for a Mars bar then...

    EDIT: Or rather not... just checked again and still only 1430 and 1483, so you can afford a second class stamp nearly...
