Exclamation Nominations and voting...here's how it works !

okay, people..we're down to the nitty gritty of VOTING !

So far, I have received the following nominations:

darthfergie
tie guy
wc_heavyarms
Kvan
Young David
Luke Skywalker
crazy_dog
Clefo
Boba Rhett
Darktrooper
Gamma 732
Kobi Duran
xwing guy
Tirion Nexsis
ICP Ringmaster
Eets'chula
Darth_Rommel
Jedi_Masta
Lordquigonjinn
Delphi_WS
ReaperFett


It's possible that you at some point announced that you wanted to run, but you don't see your name on this list... if so, pm me and all will be worked out. Don't worry; every voting-ballot that will be put up on this site will have the same countdown; no matter when it's posted. So you all have equal chances.

How does voting work ?

Every nominee gets his own voting thread. It's a vote-only poll. ALL posts that are added to these threads outside of the voting itself, will be deleted. Every mod will know this. Keep this in mind, as we try to keep voting as clean and fair as possible.
To vote, simply click on either 'yes' or 'no' in that person's thread.

Important: you can vote on ALL nominees. It's highly advisable to do so. After all, each candidate deserves to be voted upon. It's a little effort that will make a lot of people happy.

At the end of the countdown (one week to make sure the majority of forummers gets a chance to vote), we look at which 14 nominees got the highest 'yes'-count. The 'no' votes are put in because it can basically rule out any spammers or 'inappropriate' folks. This is direct control of the people that use these boards, so if you weren't really.. proper on these forums before, you might see the result in your 'no' votes ! On the other hand, the opposite is true for the 'yes' votes.

The 14 nominees with the highest 'yes' counts will proceed to the second and final voting round.
That's basically it. Over the coming week you can expect to read up on a lot more Senate-related material. But for now, happy voting !

Ok, so out of the 14 who move on, how many will actaully make it to the senate? and, are the votes in the 'no' section deducted from your 'yes' count?

First question: we go with 7 first.
Second question: no. The no-votes are a way for forummers to have their say on people who misbehaved on the boards.

Although some people could vote more than once by taking advantage of the fact he gets banned a lot.... Taking away the purity of the process

*looks at his voting booth stats* Yikes... I used to think I was somewhat popular here 9 votes against!

Like Luke, I wouldn't mind knowing who, and why... if you feel comfortable doing so

EDIT: Viper, your throwing everything off it's only fair to vote once...

Wow ... there are currently 14 peeps who have more, or equal 'yes' votes than 'no' votes ... and I'm number 8 in the ranking (Tirion is no 1.) Can't we do who has the less 'no' votes? I'd be number 2 then

hmmm ... another week huh ... We'll see what changes until then.

Vote for me, vote YD !!!

There should be a vote limit, like 45 or 50. That way they can vote for someone else, and I think I will lose. Just a thought though, BUT I WANT TO WIN!!!!

We're having the following things happen.

1. People come in and vote yes for one person and no to everyone else. Because they didn't read how they should go about voting.

2. Were having people vote only for one person then leave. Because they didn't read how they should go about voting.

3. Were having people reregister and vote multiple times. Because they're...... not nice.

If any of the nominees are having clan members, friends, etc... come and vote for them please make sure that they read how the voting should be done before they vote.

That sucks, especially when they vote NO! I have two accounts (I was REALLY afraid of being banned back then, so I made a back up ), but I've only voted with one! Follow my good example!

There are several possibilities.

1. There's been foul play.

2. People haven't been reading how to vote. "They vote yes for one person and no for all the others"

3. You, I and many others here have many people who dislike us.

I was talking to some people and it seemed they thought you could only vote for one and vote no for the rest. I don't think anybody who voted no "hates" the nominee with exception of a few and I think you know who I mean =P

The No votes are obsolete anyway, you dont need them. I just look at the Yes votes. Almost 900 people are registered to these forums.. well, I should say 800 (100 are former Viper names). I think it is sad that almost 80% of the forumers didnt even bother to vote.

Theres 650 registered people subtract 50 for viper you have 600 then take away 300 in active forummers and you get 300 then subtract 50 for the people who have never posted. you have around 250 active forummers.

A quick update on the voting-process:

- we are taking into account that some are voting with multiple accounts

- bribes are taken into account as well

- As of right now, no more nominations are accepted

- Expect a 'half-time' results-summary up tonight..
