Date un'occhiata, qualcuno che so avere altri account con i requisiti
l'ho avvisato in talk, ma potrebbe esserci qualcun altro.

The Election Committee regretfully announces that we will have to
remove approximately 220 votes submitted. These votes were cast by
people not entitled to vote. The election rules state that users must
have at least 400 edits by March 1 to be eligible to vote.
The voter lists we sent to Software in the Public Interest (our third
party election partner) initially were wrong. There was a bug in the
edit counting program and the sent list contained every account with
201 or more edits, instead of 400 or more edits. So large numbers of
people were qualified according to the software who shouldn't be. The
bug has been fixed and the list of voters has been amended by the SPI.
Our first (and incorrect) list contains 80,458 accounts as qualified.
The proper number of qualified accounts in the SPI list is now 52,750.
As of the morning of July 4 (UTC), there are 2,773 unique voters and
220 people have voted who are not qualified based upon this identified
In accordance with voting regulations the Election Committee will
strike the approximate 220 votes due to lack of voting eligibility.
The list of struck votes are available at
Election Committee is trying to contact those voters separately by
It is possible that some of those people may have accounts on other
projects where they have more than 400 edits, and they may still be
eligible to vote. We strongly encourage them to vote again with their
other account. For those people who don't have any other accounts
eligible to vote, we hope they reach the criteria in the next
Election, and will be happy to see them participate in the future
Your comments, questions or messages to the Committee would be
appreciated, and can be made at [[m:Talk:Board elections/2007/en]].
Again, we would like to deeply apologize for any inconvenience.
