"Maths" instead of "math" is awesome.

Thank God

That would still split the vote unfairly for one person. As we've discovered from survivors, voting works differently when there are multiple options instead of 1v1. Plus there's the added likelihood of a tie, which would defeat the purpose. I don't know. It sounds like a very slight majority prefers ranking anyways.

I probably should have made a poll about this weeks ago.

It would just be nice to have some kind of knowledge that everyone's participating, that's all I'm looking for.

I'm also really afraid we're getting too close to taking this far too seriously. The idea is just to have fun. Let's have fun. I like fun, do you?

We're CLOSE to taking this too seriously? We crossed that bridge years ago. That's why Space Moon intervened.

Let's just do rankings then. Even with 1v1 polls it won't be perfect, at some point we'll have a person winning with a 2-1 vote.

Or LMP's idea, with a final ranking at the end of four weeks or whatever. The discussion is the thing I'm really keen for.

At least with rankings, 19 people will be kind of weighing in.

I think we should rank the options on how to proceed instead.

Peef should start a best DI methods survivor. Maybe Bonnie will have her list in by the end.

I was excited about not doing rankings. Cobbler's right, people will end up hurrying and making things up. And even if no one makes anything up, ranking still becomes pretty arbitrary when you're ranking this many lists. Also, one of the things I was looking forward to with the polls was the posting of fewer lists at a time, two at a time, as I feel even four or five at a time is too much. I like the idea of every list or at least every two lists getting specific attention and discussion.

If there is any way whatsoever to do polls, I feel that's what we should do.

I agree that four or five lists a week is way too much. That's definitely not going to happen.
