Re: [Ayreton] Re: PIB BALLOT: Reply to Kev
I hadn't noticed that Merrill was under any form of 'attack', but your defense of her is most noble. As for her consulting with the KTO or the committee, she'd have to had to have known what the topic or questions were to have anything to ask them about. Sadly, I didn't get a chance to communicate any of that to her. And since it wasn't really TGS business, in reflection this seemed a better place to field the suggestions anyway. Especially given the productive responses we've received.
I *am* interested in making sure that the process is smooth and regular. That would also include making sure that proxies submitted are acknowledged as received (although I hadn't considered that). A public list of proxy voters would make it easy for those who voted to know that their own votes were received, although personally I have no problem with the Seneschals providing direct acknowledgement (e.g. Henry's 'Got it') to the sender to address this potential problem.
Also, Wolfram had a potentially useful suggestion:

Another point I hadn't considered. Thanks for the feedback.

Subject: Re: [Ayreton] Re: PIB BALLOT: Proxy Ballot for those who cannot attend the PIB voting on April 26First, in defence of Merrill, I am not certain this issue can be addressed withoutconsulting the Transition Officer, or at least the other Seneschals.Second, in defence of Grimkirk, I believe his concern is that somone's proxy vote willbe lost. Some of the responses to this, I believe, indicte they believe this to be aninvasion of privacy. I am confident our individual Seneschals will do thier bhest to insure everyone's vote is counted. I believe that when the Cryer announces all the numbers it willbecome evident if somehow someones vote was lost.-Kevin Ambrozijwski
