Re: [board-discuss] Format of the BoD votes announcement

Hi :)
I think just the vote count is fine.  If people want more info they can look through the 
appropriate thread.  I do quite like the idea of a list of names as a way of people checking they 
were counted correctly but there are times when a vote needs to be taken anonymously.  So, on 
balance i'm quite happy without names.  
Regards from
Tom :)

Maybe we can even add the opinions of those who are participating, but not formally allowed to 
vote (e.g. the audience or deputies not representing anyone). It helps giving an impression of the 
overall opinion.

Any thoughts from someone else?
