      Chipping in my vote from that thread...

      But why is voting open for a week? Is that just how long all voting is?

      Yeah, it's a pretty standard, easy-to-remember time frame--one that has a good balance of allowing people enough time to vote, but also not letting it drag on for too long. And sure, I think it should be a week each time unless the voting topic/circumstances call for a longer or shorter time.

      But if the board is made within 24 hours, why would we need voting open for a week?... It's not a big deal or anything, just something I noticed.

      That's just a precaution in case I'm not immediately available. Sometimes I come on here to quickly check up on things before taking off to school or work, and usually things with multiple steps (like creating a new Forum board) take too much time out of my rushed morning schedule.

      But again, as far as allowing a week for time, I figure if someone comes late for a vote and really wanted to vote in one of these threads, they'll have fewer excuses than someone who is more active than they are.

      The new board "Fun & Games", as well as its new criteria, will be added to the Forums main page and the Forum Policies & FAQ respectively within 24 hours.
