How do I vote for somebody?[edit]

Where is the page where I can vote for somebody I beleive should fill in the role as one of Rational Wiki's moderators? Rabbitxhampster (talk) 17:24, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

Wait until Nominations are closed. Pippa (talk) 17:26, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
Ok, are you guys doing that "single vote transferable" thingy again? I still don't understand it, but I think that only one of my votes is counted and I don't like that. So I have to be really really sure that the first person I vote for is the very best choice, even though there are several people I want to vote for. Isn't there some way to make all the votes count? Thanx - Refugeetalk page 07:55, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
and if I vote for, say 7 people, does that make my vote weaker than if I voted for, say, only 2 people? This is probably not the right place to post this question, sorry. Refugeetalk page 08:06, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
Your vote is not diluted no. The counting occurs in rounds, if your top preference is not being counted in a given round (either because they have all ready won, or they have been eliminated) then your next preference is counted. It become more complicated as the strength of your next highest preference is weighted by the surplus of votes your previous highest preference was over the surplus. So its not true that only one of your votes counts, though it could be thought of that your lower preference votes don't count until your higher preference candidate's status has been decided one way or another.

Fuck it, its 4 am I am too tired to explain STV coherently night! Tmtoulouse (talk) 08:12, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
It's ok - you gave it a good shot and it probably makes perfect sense... but I am not going to be able to understand it no matter what. i wonder if you guys realize how intimidated I get when you post all your higher level maths and what-not... and sadly this is also beyond my comprehension. So nevermind.. I'll just vote, and whatever. Thanks again - Refugeetalk page 08:27, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
side note - lol, I tell my friends that I sometimes post at a "smart board". :p Refugeetalk page 08:29, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
One shouldn't lie to one's friends. It's a sin. Mountain Blue (talk) 09:25, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
So, is it going to be that stupid "single vote transferable" once again? Man I hate that method. If we use that I'm only casting one vote. Refugeetalk page 09:13, 18 December 2011 (UTC)
But then again, there are several people that I really want to vote for. Why can't we just elect the people who get the most votes? Refugeetalk page 02:21, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
We do. Get to know STV, you'll like it. Blue Talk 02:30, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
I tried Blue :-( I really did. I even went to Wikipedia and read about it, but by the second paragraph I was twiddling my hair and gazing off into the distance and thinking about how to beat my high score in kinect fruit ninja.. sigh. I just don't have the brain power of Blue, or of most everyone here. Sad but true. Refugeetalk page 02:36, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

Eligibility...again[edit]

I felt sure we had mod eligibility requirements. No? AceAce For Mod! 21:25, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

No, there are no requirements to run, just to vote. -- Nx / talk 21:35, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
Weird. Oh hey, since you got so butthurt worried about possible copyright violations re: Darth Vader perhaps you should delete La what's his face campaign image as it is from 2001 Space Odyssey. AceAce For Mod! 21:37, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
Ok. Btw, did you get permission from Grady Ward for this? -- Nx / talk 22:00, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
Sure, I'll post it to you - what's your address? AceAce For Mod! 22:01, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
Nah, I believe you. -- Nx / talk 22:11, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
