I would say my view on the voting rules also, like last year where I was a
active editor but wasn't allowed to vote because of the rule that you can't
be blocked on more then one project.

I was that year a administrator, list administrator and member of the
LangCom. But was blocked on a project where I was active before and on a
project where I never editted.. This made me not able to vote.

With the rule of being blocked it will be very EASY to remove people you
don't want to vote... Just block them for a while and they can't vote.

The rules of the voting should be changed, so that it would be more easy
for people to vote and not let there be a change that people can be
excluded from voting by just random facts.
