The notification at the top of bicycles.SE says:

"The Bicycles 2011 community moderator election ends on Wednesday sep 29th"

Not only the 29th is a Thursday, but also the elections end on a Thursday.

I reckon this is an error.


Just as a FYI to the moderators, every active user who has enough rep to vote gets an individual site user message for the final election phase of the election.

So by manually adding this site message, you are notifying

  • anonymous users

  • users who don't have the right to vote

  • users who can vote, but already got notified via a site message specific to them

Additionally, we also have a brief (as intended!) site message at the start and end of the election.

So adding yet another system message is redundant in all cases for the final phase of the election. I'm going to go ahead and remove this site message.

  • not a problem, just clarifying that everyone who can vote and visits the site at all during the election period is definitely going to know about it, trust me :) – Jeff Atwood Sep 29 '11 at 14:34
