Dear members,

First, I’d like to apologize to all the participants for this serious inconvenience and for the change in schedule.

I’m relieved and touched by the understanding response of the ProZian community, especially among contest participants. This is no way lightens my sense of responsibility.

I'm sure you know that a lot of hard work is put into contests and we will continue to work hard, and make sure this mistake does not happen again.

Thanks to all the members who constantly contribute with their ideas and share our concern to make a better contest each time around.

I’d like to announce that final voting is now underway in all cleared pairs. You can cast your vote here http://www.proz.com/contests .

The pairs in which the selective approach will be used will be ready for final voting as soon as we have finished contacting all the contestants. Please see http://www.proz.com/topic/100633 .

Thanks for being there.

Romina

Deadline? Mar 27, 2008

Hi Romina,

Thanks for all your effort and hard work. The way the unfortunate situation with the bug was handled showed how seriously Henry and staff take the contest and respect the community's opinions. Mucho kudos to everyone!

I have a question: did you establish the deadline for the final voting stage yet? I couldn't find it anywhere.
