On election page there is a block containing a short description of the process and it has "OpenSTV" mentioned:

enter image description here

However the link to OpenSTV (http://www.openstv.org) from that block brings you to the OpaVote website stating:

OpenSTV has been merged into OpaVote


... we are no longer supporting OpenSTV

So wouldn't it be correct to update the election process description with the new product(brand) name and the new link to its' homepage like it was before with OpenSTV?

  • Maybe they are still using the old product with an old version. Not sure if it is correct to say they use the newer version. Nov 18, 2016 at 20:56
  • @PatrickHofman Surely possible they're using the old version. It's just the wording of the announcement makes you think there is no old product available, i.e. it was subscription based with $400/year and now they have a different pricing policy, so the old one clearly discontinued, and "hope that OpaVote fulfills the needs of our former OpenSTV customers", like there is no more OpenSTV customers etc. Nov 18, 2016 at 21:11
  • That's considered a broken link, and a bug. (As far as I can tell) Nov 18, 2016 at 21:29
