An Important Notice to YCEC Members: Changes to the Voting Process

Dear members of the Entrepreneurship Campus,

We would like to call your attention to the following issue:
Given that we have received several users’ queries for support during the recent days, a change to the voting process will be implemented in order to make the procedure easier and more secure.

The deadline for entries, July 31, is approaching, and afterward, the YCEC will focus on the voting process for the entire month of August.  In order to prepare for a month of heavy voting, changes to the process were considered necessary.
The alteration to the voting process will aid to better connect our technology with all types of devices used by the members of the Entrepreneurship Campus. This will help to make the safer and mobile friendly.

How will it work?

After the change will be implemented, you, as a user that wants to cast a vote, will need to authenticate yourself with an email double option.
You will insert your email, and a verification URL will be sent to you. After clicking the URL, you’ll have 15 minutes of time to vote for a given idea/project once a day. After this session expires, you can no longer vote, until the upcoming day (24 hours later).
Thank you for your understanding.

    Dear Campus- Manager,

    After the implementation of this new voting process, my family and friends are having challenges casting their votes because they complained that the registration process is lengthy such that after their registration and clicks on the email verification links sent to them, the vote command can not be easily accessed.

    Kindly assist to simplify the voting process such that it will be seamless especially for those who just submitted their ideas/projects for votes and comments.

    Thank you.

    • Profile photo of Campus Administrator

      Dear Perpetual,
      We are sorry to tell, but the reason why you cannot see your entry in the respective category is that you may haven’t been able to publish it before July 31, which was the deadline for submitting and publishing ideas and projects in this edition of the competition.
      Only the entries that met the deadline are now public and open for votes and comments.
      We are looking forward to seeing your idea in the future. 🙂
