RE: Does it qualify as a Principled Objection to say the poll shouldn't have closed on East Coast time but should have remained open for the rest of us in the Mountain and Pacific time zones?  ...also Hawaii and Alaska

I first sought to get clarification on the policy used to end the survey (which I believe is/was an appropriate thing to do). However, I did not, because of a lack of clarity, suggest a resolution.  Let me fix this…


[PRINCIPLED OBJECTION] I object to the VC HTTP API Renaming Poll being closed based on Eastern time. I believe it should have remained open (regardless of prior notice) for the rest of us in the Mountain and Pacific time zones?  ...also Hawaii and Alaska timezones. I propose the poll be reopened until midnight Hawaii time on Sunday August 22, 2021 … another few days.

Jumping in due to the process question, and due to the discussion on the other thread.

In this case the Poll page itself, as well as the preview of the poll that was released a week or so ahead of the poll, was very clear on the time zone of the poll.  It would have been better if the mailing list announcement had specified a timezone explicitly, however it appears to me that plenty of time was given, and that information was clearly communicated, though there could have been improvements in this communication.  I would note from: https://www.w3.org/2020/Process-20200915/#WGArchiveMinorityViews

"An individual who registers a Formal Objection should cite technical arguments and propose changes that would remove the Formal Objection... Formal Objections that do not provide substantive arguments or rationale are unlikely to receive serious consideration by the Director."

This is an item up to the editors.  If they seem some lack of participation or major confusion from the community at large where a large number of votes were missed, etc.  I am positive that they would address appropriately.

Or one could have voted many days ago when things were open. It does not matter an hour + and -.
If you start digging into that bees nest you need to think about what part of the world have added the most votes.
If it is Europe, it should have closed Europe time.

It looks like the poll is run in EDT:

The poll opening and closing was automated and the poll software doesn't allow me to re-open a poll after the official close time.
