Suggestion for what?

I participated in the work towards concensus regarding a name for what 
has since been described as "thingy 1". I lost interest when I realized 
that the object of the debate was not only that but also other thingies.

I will consider participating in a vote, too, depending on its design.

No, I have no interest discussing (again) if it is better to limit the 
scope of this debate to "thingy1". Which also means I have no interest 
in discussing how to best design a vote.

What I wanted to say with my paranthesis above was simply that I am 
surprised by your change of method.

I did not mean to judge any of the methods, nor the switch.
