By the end of this month (August), we will be running a Kickstarter, and voting is one area we plan to enhance with funds we raise – including speedier vote resolution. We’ll have more details when the Kickstarter begins.Pat commented
I don't see why it has to be one or the other. I personally feel that it should be an option under your account settings. That way people can have best of both worlds. Unless everyone in the group has Majority Rules checked, then people have to wait by the default 24 hour time restraint. If someone doesn't mind Majority Rules, they can check it so people don't have to wait.
It might take a little extra effort to implement such a optional feature. But I think it would benefit the game by giving the player the freedom of choosing what they want.
