I know it can't be solved right now but...

I think that the voting procedure is bad,
because people answer questions one by one
with no way to review it.

I think a simple web form would do better
(using jabber only to verify the user) as
you could see all your votes at once.

For member applications, this is even worse as
there are lots of them and one might like to
hold the voting before talking to some of them
