Possibly an error in this week's WIU...

Hello! I was looking at this week's WIU and I noticed that it included an update from an English for Polish speakers contributor. However, the exact same update was in last week's WIU. Was this a typo, or was it supposed to be there?

Also, why was this week's WIU locked?

Thanks!

There is no errors.

the exact same update was in last week's WIU. Was this a typo, or was it supposed to be there?

Not the first time it happens. ;)

As it's not published exactly every 168hours (7 * 24 hours), some margins are taken to avoid to miss an update : each WIU shows the updates made during the last 240 hours (=10 "days") before data are retrieved.

Also, why was this week's WIU locked?

Because the WIU aren't discussions, they are more updates/information.

Can't say I agree, it's a good platform for discussing future developments in the incubator without flooding the forum with 'unofficial' ones. Was there something that caused the need for this change? The previous ones certain aren't locked.

Oh, okay, thanks Jrikhal!

But then why weren't the previous WIUs locked?

Well, would you look at that... -5 votes.

There must have been quite a considerable number of downvoters, since I upvoted, and I assume the people who awarded lingots probably upvoted, and likely some others too.

-5 votes = thread gets automatically removed from the discussion listings.

Interesting how not a single person has left a comment about why they thought Woof shouldn't have asked those questions, or about why they thought we shouldn't be allowed to discuss it.

This means no one else will be able to see this thread. When the next person wonders why this week's WIU is locked, there'll now be yet another thread made about this same thing... ^^;

I noted this as well...

Oh well, it's only -2 now, but as we know, discussions (whether sensible or BS) end up lost in the noise pretty quickly anyway. :-S

Heh. I upvoted. We'll see what happens...

I have a conspiracy theory, but I'm worried if I voice it, the thread will get deleted. Hmm...
