DISCORD recap from jan10 8:30 UT to jan18 8:00 UTC

NAMING VOTE

  • the naming vote is finally live and running. it will continue until 2022-01-25 00:00 UTC. after that, round 2 will start in which the top 2 names will be voted on in a run-off.
    round 1 is happening here: H=N Community Vote

A few clarifications:
1 vote per wallet, not multiple choice
results will be shown after the round is completed
every tez wallet can submit a vote but only votes from wallets active on hen before jan 16 and not banned on hen will be counted. you can review the list of elligible wallets here: https://vote.hencommunity.quest/hen-users-snapshot-16-01-2022.json
The counter on the voting site that indicates the number of votes submitted is lagging behind
you can change your vote while the voting is running by “revoting”
