Hi all!.. an update regarding valid voters and persons eligible for nominations:

The OCT decided on the last election to extend the range of valid days for those persons who have posted at least twice in our forums; from 90 to 180. That makes 72 persons on the count of persons who posted twice in the forums.

A quick reminder: Nominatios are closing tomorrow (22nd of October), so if you want to nominate, go ahead a do so.
