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.
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.
