    It's a nail-biter! Everyone get your votes in - two days left!

    Good luck to all, you're all great candidates.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Why only the 5 days to vote ?? Just curious as to the thinking on this decision ??? Is it so the winner has near on a full month as MOTM ?

    I think we need notifications sent to all members to vote.
    The only reason I knew about this is that another member told me.

    Three days is the poll length. The thought is to get an MOTM for the better part of the month. We started a bit late into December and don't want to make it a habit.

    There's a notification in Community Announcements and Anything Goes. Our staff (who tend to post in great numbers) have also placed a conspicuous note in their signatures.

    Frankly, if we send an email to all of our 150,000+ members, it's going to create quite a stir.

    My advice is to keep an eye on the Community Announcements forum, that is the point of it, after all.

    Why do you need more?

    If the President of the United States can be elected on one Tuesday, I'm pretty sure the MoTM voting can be done in a few days.

    We post it here, we announce it in announcements, it's also shared on Twitter and Facebook multiple times. Oh, and it's in most mod's signatures.

    We're also striving to get the poll up on the 1st of every month so that may help as a reminder also.

    Our community is made up of all kinds of different people, and all of them have the right to feel comfortable. Others may not think the way that you think, believe what you believe, know what you know, or see what you see. Always be polite and respectful in your interactions with others.
    Maybe this needs to be read into a little more thoroughly?

    I'm not seeing any issue, I think you're reading something into the post that's not there.

    What were you expecting the response to be? Both cwa and I explained where things are announced today. Not sure how else we could have done so to make you feel more comfortable?

    I read your post quite differently to cwa's post, but hey, I guess it's all in the eyes of the beholder
    I'll drop it, as I have derailed this thread too much already...

    Sorry MOM contenders, I really didn't mean to put a negative slur on this thread, and I hope that all these posts are deleted in order to bring it back to the topic of MOM votes and comments.

    I'll leave it with a high note for you all....

    There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire to become a great writer.
    When asked to define great he said, I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger!

    He now works for Microsoft, writing error messages.

    That is a highly skilled job you know. It takes real brains to think up of different names for every error message. And there is a lot of them to do
