    Might be time to investigate how Simon got hold of the demand class email list and emailed voters before they were released?

    Just by the way, I want to extend a special thanks all of you that signed up as members this year. I know some of you didn't particularly want to, but without you doing so, Tim wouldn't have been elected; and Shane wouldn't have come as close as he did.

    This should give us confidence for next year. Whilst Shane is probably feeling a little disappointed right now, I sincerely hope he puts up his hand again. We need someone like him who understands SME's, and the business of domain names.

    That is really saying something. He mustn't have even voted for himself.

    Congratulations to the elected directors.

    Shane, as I said to you earlier today, terrific effort (it was very close!) and I hope you run again.

    I use a very specific email for auda - this email wasn't used by Simon, so I'm satisfied that there was nothing underhand.

    I have never in my life been fobbed off as rudely as I was today. Another added to the list of; "You'll never get my vote".

    At first it was a commiserations hand shake, until he realised I was not Shane. Then it was a wave of well I don't want to talk to you and turned away.

    I was rather impressed with those that did make an effort to introduce themselves and say hi.

    Congrats to Erhan & Tim.

    Hi Nicole, Congratulations on your first attempt for the auDA Board.

    I really hope you stay engaged on this forum now the elections are over. There is a lot of information here worth reading from some very experienced people and you would have some great input to share also.

    Thanks for the support guys, and congratulations to Tim on getting elected.

    In the end it came down to who campaigned best, which was of course Simon and Tim.

    I'll write a more detailed response later. For now it's all just an excuse to spend a couple of days slumming it... :D

    Thanks very much.

    I would like to extend my thanks to each and every person who voted for me. Your vote means a lot to me. I know you had options on who to vote for and I am honoured that you chose to vote for me.

    It has been a great experience getting to know people through this forum and I look forward to meeting more people in the industry. I will certainly play a bigger part in this forum moving forward.

    I intend to run again for election next year.

    Nic

    Good to catch up with your yesterday Shane, you should have another tilt next year. In the meantime enjoy slumming it with your million dollar views :)
