The point of my e-mail is not really "you've forgotten me", but "you
have forgotten a lot of people", not because of the lack of
communication media but because of the dates.
About the translations: It's right that the end date was announced in
the mailing-list e-mail , april 29th. Sorry. What I meant is that the
French "Introduction & dates" page on-wiki still says at present time
that "the competition has begun", without any date, whereas the similar
English page gives the end date of round 1. Details, but these pages
probably are the first source of information when trying to participate
About the announcement: I didn't see any information on this mailing
list before april 29th, and it was already 5 days before the end of the
first round. In five days, we expect people to be aware of the existence
of POTY 2010, to look at all the pictures and to vote? That looks very
short to me, but that's probably because many people are on holidays
here in France.
About the on-wiki organization pages: Obviously I was watching the wrong
pages. When I left on April 25th, the one I was watching was still
saying something like "is there anyone doing anything?"
with probably the header in a different state).
I guess I'm just personnally frustrated that I couldn't review & vote.

The translation begun 1 month ago. For one month anyone could go there
and translate the pages to his language, (for example the pt version -
made by me - was created in 31 March
French people had one month to translate everything, and according with
they did. If something don't got translated is not because they didn't
And all this time, the start and end date of Round 1 was clear. We
anounce here, in village pumps, Twitter, Facebook, IRC. I'm sorry we
forget to send you a personal invitation.

Additional comment: the first round ended before its end date could be
translated and displayed to French-speaking visitors. Seriously, perhaps
I don't have anything to say because I didn't contribute, but this POTY
edition looks like a bad joke to me.

We receive this invitation on april 29th, and the first round finishes
on may 4th?
I took 10 days of vacations. Before I left, nothing was up, and when I
come back, it's already over?
Or maybe there's something I didn't understand?
