Votes are carried for 72 hours and the votes are tallied after this time is elapsed
But the thing is that some of us at least were not even aware about that rule (myself included) and were not using it at all. Personally I often open votes for at least one week, you can just check my open votes on this forum. @MichaelHamann did follow the rule by the book and closed recently a vote because of it.
Frankly I don’t think that limitation is useful or really wanted. My proposal is to replace this sentence by:
“Votes are opened with a defined closing date”. Any date is ok for me, as sometimes we need very fast vote, and sometimes we need long vote or don’t really care how much time it will take. Now we do need a date for knowing when the vote is closing.
I’m opening this vote for 3 days so until thursday the 5th of october
Here’s my +1.
