My sincere apologies for the confusion caused.
It was certainly not our intention to mislead anyone. I should have made it clear that the 10-day period would be in addition to the 10-week submission and voting period. We were expecting well over 100 proposals, and we didn’t think it would be likely that people would have time to go through them all within a ‘voting-only’ period. So, we allowed the voting to occur as the submissions were coming in to spread the ‘workload’.
From July 15th - 25th , all proposals will be available for evaluation and voting only.
This was meant to indicate that we would not be taking any more submissions, and only allowing voting. Not that voting could only occur during this period. I understand that is frustrating, and I apologize again for the confusion.
