Still no majority for any one. So, once more into the breach!

I'll again drop the least popular. This time we'll have to get a majority, unless we tie.

I don't think we'll try this method of voting again. It may be more 'democratic', but it takes forever. Next time it's back to autocracy, and I'll just pick one! Shocked

2.

Actually, this isn't quite the method that I meant to describe.

In the voting method I've used, you only vote once, and you do it by ranking (or arranging) the choices from high to low. The "Tally votes, drop lowest, and re-tally" is done after all votes are cast. But you're right, this version of that method is slow.

The other problem with the way we did this one is that people tend to jump on the band wagon. When people see the 2 most popular options, they tend to vote for those 2 rather than risk wasting their vote on the one that they really want.

But in the ranking vote, your vote will always count on every tally no matter what. Because even if it comes down to the 2 options you like the least, you have still ranked one of those options higher than the other and thus your vote will count for that one.

End of Philosophizing.

*snickers*

It takes a long time to vote everything in a way that is fair.

But it just is so much more democratic... Laughing

I've been checking the poll results around lunch time every day.

So, I come in after lunch today, to finally find the winner, and I find that y'all have all been conspiring against me, to make it a tie, just to give me the most branepane possible!!! Shocked

I guess that means that I just need to pick one and be done with it.

I'll be fair. When I get in-game and get the selection window up, I'll flip a coin.

We'll then find out what our decal is.

A cobra hugging a grenade to represent some of our members suicidal tendancies in-game.

OR

A demented somewhat orc looking demon head to represent some of our members obsession with all things Orc and dim witted.

The suspense! Who shall win, the suicidal snake or the retarded demon?

Then again K'dah might throw us a curve ball, and give us his Red Army Star, in attempt to upset us all equally. Hmm no, that wouldn't work since we have no shortage of wanna be commies either. You could just give us number 9 from the orignal list, no one voted for it and it actually looks good. Razz

darn I love these polls! Very Happy

I think the poll is going to last beyond the expected life of this branch.

I think you should just go ahead and pick one Kdah, or roll dice, or whatever.

I already have! I did right after I posted that.

I went in, brought up the window, flipped a coin. It came up tails, so now we've got a snake-wrapped-around-a-bomb decal (the demon head was naturally 'heads').

Something I noticed though - I could still change the decal after picking one. So either it didn't take (someone tell me if it did?), or we can change it as often as we want.

Thats why i said we should fight once a month and the winner picks a picture. Since it seems we can change it at will!

We'd have to set rules for the same weapons/armor to be used so that nobody could have any sort of advantage other than natural skill.

Maybe we could do naked knife fights.

Although not a big fan of the suicidal snake, it doesn't make sense to me to be changing the symbol that represents us every month. Kind of deafeats the point of having an emblem in the first place. So, I say lets learn to like the snake and be done with this topic.

Also regarding knife fights, my stealther's favorite hobby is knifing people, but who do you think his favorite target is, the Rexo with the most armor or the cloaker with none? If you thought it was the cloaker, well your dead wrong, with melee booster and the knife in secondary mode it takes me two hits to kill Rexo, an Agile , or a cloaker. The armor in this case doesn't matter, so it comes down to who's the slowest or most nimble, because a knife is actually a very difficult weapon to aim with on a moving target. I 'll take on 4 stationary Rexos with my knife, but frequently choose the beamer for a sinlge cloaker. Just a thought I figure I would share.

Anyway, for dueling I like the idea of pistols at dawn. We use two captured repeaters, and the combatants start back to back running in opposite directions until the call is made and then turn to shoot at each other. but not for the Outfit symbol, the suicidal snake stays in my view, and it wasn't ever my vote of choice.
