Hello Jesús,

I don't think the joking votes are that important in this particular case.

We have two very serious proposals and I am sure we'll have a great
LibOCon 2012 wherever we hold it. The two places are not that distant
so I don't think it makes a lot of difference one place or the other
one from a practical point of view (I am sure the travel costs are
similar if you don't live in any of the countries). So even if people
who don't plan to attend start voting massively for one of the places,
where's the problem?

I am open for discussion, of course, but I wonder that you seem to have a
different opinion now, since the BoD has voted on this during the last call.

I am just open to discussions ;) But I was just talking to this
particular case, we need to define this for the future.

We had a huge problem in the Conference 2007 in
Barcelona as more than 1000 people registered for the conference and
at the end there were no more than 250 people appeared. We lost a lot
of money because of that and on a personal basis after more than one
year of the conference I was still clearing the mess up. Yes, I am
still angry ;)

A possible solution would be:

1. Invite all the TDF members to vote by default.
2. If you are not a member of the TDF but you also want to vote, send
a message to someone (Florian maybe? :P) and you will be invited.
