When am I supposed to collect the "final" results then, though? We could simply do another vote in one and a half year or so. In fact, I'm currently thinking about it, but changing the system to allow voting for second and/or third places as well since this point is brought up more often this year. Might have to do that outside of this forum, at least partly, but we'll see.
you dont need to have final results.
This is not a fucking election. Just let the results be ongoing. Why shut it down? You have a guy that joins the board this week or next month, maybe he wants to vote.
I don’t think it’s fair for you to complain about time when it took you 5 months to respond and resurrected a dead thread to do so...
My understanding of closing the poll is so that there is a firm understanding of everyone’s opinion of the song at that given point in time. Will opinions change? Yes, and that’s why these polls are recreated frequently. So contrary to your point, it is an election of everyone’s favorite song at that given time.
Also, it’s one thread on a fan run board asking for member’s thoughts on a song. I don’t think anyone is losing sleep if they don’t get their vote in on time... There’s plenty of other options for them to voice their thoughts here.
