Sorry Johnny, I know it takes a lot of work to organize this whole thing, but you were not really thinking of us, Europeans.
I don't think he was thinking of North Americans either
Sunday night he opens the 2nd Round Top Half thread at 9:30 pm (ET -- just go with my time zone for this one), while voting in the previous round is still going on till 11 pm.
Now anyone who had already voted for the previous round (by 7:30 pm, let's say) would have assumed the next round of voting opens at 11 pm and will go to 11 am next day. Sunday night, people gotta work Monday so go to bed early, they figure they can log in at work on Monday morning and still have a chance until 11 am. So imagine you come in a little late (9:10 am) and by the time you get settled and your computer started up, emails checked, answer voicemails, it's 9:40 am and you get on here and find out you missed it!
It was lucky for me I have awful sleep habits and went on MTF late last night or I would've missed it (especially as I start work at 10 am).
