Didn't get a chance to put in the reminder yesterday, but here it is: you have 11:59pm Dec. 31 to vote. And I'm sure no one wants to spend NYE voting, so get 'em in. ;->

Parlance forgot to mention that for any user that doesn't vote, a puppy will be given a spray of a water bottle, specifically cute puppies. We don't want that to happen now do we?

This site is horrendous for using puppies as threats...wait that's just me...

Oooh, I like that idea. I'll raise you one and say that this kitten:

who happens to be mine, gets a spritz for each non-voting member. You don't want that to happen to this kitten, do you? It's in your hands.

Most kittenS (ie 99.999%) will happily scratch people to death knowing full well that every onlooker will stand back, let the horror unfold, and say that its only playing.

Now, now, MMM. How can you be grouchy in the face of such cuteness?

I think you should possibly offer an extra 24 hours for those who don't yet realise their votes were lost during the latest switchover.

Have PM's been lost too, then?

I would assume so, as I know they were lost for the three-day period that was rolled back. I would guess that anything put on the site Sunday/Monday, forum or PM, were lost in this switchover.

Hmmm, well I guess parlance will have to check her inbox to see if she's lost anything...

How will she know? If posted in the 32 hours meanmistermustard cites he was down, and she didn't see it, how would parlance know about missing votes that didn't involve threats to cute puppies or cats?

Um... well I was assuming she'd have seen them. I guess there's no reason why...

I get notifications for PMs, so I know none of them are missing, as no one voted during the time that it appears posts or PMs were lost. So we're good.

Votes are still due by 11:59 PST tonight!

When are the results announced? I need to get my "absolutely delighted that you won instead of mea-hard-days-night-paul-3a-hard-days-night-paul-11" replies ready so to be read in a polite, notatallbotheredbythisintheslightest tone.

 

What are the rules about claiming its all a fix and demanding a recount?

I could probably post on Jan. 1, but I don't know how many people will be reading the board that day. Let's say Jan. 2. You got a couple of days to prepare your speech. ;->
