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.
