Default Onto the topic of voting (but not the voting, just yet)

No, it's not vote time just yet, but given we have two mod spots to fill, a standard poll won't do the job.

So, a few options.
Multiple choice poll. You'd be limited to two votes, any abuse of the system would be stripped.

Public write in Poll. Write in your two choices. Can't vote for the same person twice, since they can't have two mod spots.

Private write in- Same as above, but private, if folks want it. I doubt you do, but it's there.

Two Standard Polls in quick succession. All Nominees are on the first ballot. Whoever is voted highest is removed from the second one. Voting can either be public or private for this as well.

If you have another method, feel free to suggest it.

Why happening with the voting out?

I think the poll should be anonymous, like any good election.

What happened to the suggestion that each mod would get their own vote? That allows people to indicate who they don't want to become one, as well as who they do.

Out of your suggestions, this would be the one I'd go with.

Although originally when I had pictured it, I thought each mod/candidate would get their own thread/poll. That was before each got a Q&A thread. And people could either support or not support that person, and the people with the most support would be the ones to get the green light. So idk if that would be a thing you'd want to do.

Oh and private. Definitely should be a private vote.

No, it's not vote time just yet, but given we have two mod spots to fill, a standard poll won't do the job.
Quick question about this. Two? or three? Cause I couldn't help but notice Force put into the Retired Staff category. With Tenny & Force gone, you'd have to fill those two, plus the one you wanted before any of the staff left. idk if you feel like you need that many, but just asking.

I'd like 3 new mods ideally, that way hopefully, we can get wider variety of personalities and everybody will be pleased with at least one choice. Also, there is a chance that those elected might need/want to step down after a while and this saves us the trouble of having to do all this again in a few months time.

Oh and whatever option, private is definitely the way to go. During these Q&A sessions I've noticed that its the same people asking questions, now maybe thats because other members were going to ask the same questions but have been saved the trouble, but It could also be because they don't feel comfortable doing it.

Also, its probably better if Mods don't know who did or didn't vote for them to prevent accusations of bias in future.

Imho, we should do three mods total. Kristen has a good point, as well as Octo.

I'll gladly volunteer myself to take the votes.

At the moment, we're -officially- looking at two, but this is entirely seat of pants, so the total is subject to change. That's not to contradict Adri, just a note that shit's still progressing. Expect updates.

As for the individual private votes for mods on a nominee by nominee basis, it would have to continue on beyond the initial round of voting, unless there is a clear swing towards only two particular moderators, and would drag out these proceedings even longer.

If that is what you all prefer, however, we can swing that.

An abbreviated version of that would be to give everyone a choice of giving a + or - vote to each nominee, or not voting for them at all. Then select the two candidates with the biggest net score. It would have to be done through PMs.

The problem with most of the voting systems you suggested as I see it is that a nominee who has a solid core of support but is disliked by a majority will do better than someone who everyone would be happy with but is not the first or second choice of many.

That's sort of how we do the awards nominees. It's a lot of work, ngl. I think making individual threads for each person would be less work.

Oh I just want to comment on something too. I really encourage everyone to vote, even if it's a "no" on a candidate. Don't be afraid to put up a vote that you're for or against someone if it's how you really feel. I don't want people to feel they should abstain if they don't want someone as a mod. Unless you really are undecided on a person.

Seriously, I agree 100%. I want everyone to vote, even those who think it might not concern them because they only look at the FFVII forums or something.

In fact maybe we should add something somewhere prominent to let people know these votes are happening? People who don't check the feedback forum might not even know about them?

An announcement would do the trick since they show up at the top of every forum and sub forum iirc.

Just have two or three polls one after the other guys. Not that hard.

Let's just hope it doesn't go the way of the TLS voting and awards

I guess we'll just make sure Force isn't the one counting. XD
