Hi everyone --

1. Did anyone else here get this message (below) from Derick yesterday?

2. Maybe I missed something -- why was the vote reset?

It was stopped and reset last week, because it was started too early. I
remember that you were one of the people to request this :-) See my
explanation here https://externals.io/message/111416#111553

Ah, I see -- I received the message I quoted *after* I placed a vote yesterday, so I thought it had been reset *yet again*. Glad that I was wrong ...

.... but to be clear, I noted that the proper thing to do was to restart the two-week discussion period, thus resetting the time at which the vote could be held. Obviously that was not done. -- Paul M.

Ah yes, we thought that maybe some people did not see that we did the reset, and saw the new [VOTE] thread and assumed they have already voted. So we wrote to everyone to make sure that they see it was reset. We could have mentioned more precise dates to clarify, but it should work out either way.
