Don't close discussions early; we don't do Snowball closures on Meta-Wiki.

The reason has been voiced by many people in discussion forums on Meta: Meta is usually not a "home" wiki to most Wikimedians.

Most Wikimedians visit Meta only when they take part in a discussion; they tend not to watch polls 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It's unfair to arrive here before an advertised deadline, to contribute a new idea to a discussion, only to find the poll closed "due to snowballing".

Participants on Meta-Wiki are a complex and diverse mix; as in real-world international politics, protocols that everyone can understand are important, regardless of linguistic or cultural background.

Remember, a discussion is not a vote. Even a long list of "supports" does not preclude the appearance of a single and important objection. An important comment giving deeper insights can often change the whole course of a discussion.
