Title: VOTE FOR BLSD MODERATORS HERE!
Post by: Rudy Huckleberry on July 27, 2005, 05:05:01 PM
Hi everyone, please vote in this thread for your top two choices for BLSD moderators as discussed in the "BLSD Moderator Elections" thread. 

Please rank your top two choices for Mod in this format:
1) First choice poster
2) Second choice poster

Voting will remain open until Monday, August 1 at 6:00 PM EDT.  At that time someone should PM Andrew and see about getting us *both* mods.  If he does say no to two, we can then request that the person with the most "1" ranks is selected.

Nominations that were not declined as presented on the aforementioned "BLSD Moderator Elections" thread were:
AgitatorE
Blk_Reign.esq
Burning Sands
BLANK MOD


Only votes posted in this thread will count...so if you posted in the other thread, you'll need to re-post here.  That way everything is more straightforward.

EDIT (10:40 PM, Wednesday, July 27th): You may only select "Blank Mod" once.  This is not an option to say we shouldn't have a Mod at all, but rather to vote "no confidence" or to say we should only have one moderator.  The top vote-getting person will be passed on to Andrew.

While I realize there is a lot of disagreement on this method, I didn't see a "group outcry" to do it any differently...so I apologize if this bothers someone or steps on toes.  Hope this method is best for the BLSD.  Thanks!  If no one responds I'll get the message. :)

EDIT (8:27 PM EDT, Wednesday July 27): Regal has withdrawn her name from consideration.  Please see above the new list of candidates.

so what what happen if someone get most total votes but not most votes for first?

(uh oh.)
Title: Re: VOTE FOR BLSD MODERATORS HERE!
Post by: TrojanChispas on July 27, 2005, 05:50:15 PM
I think that each vote should be considered equal with weight and the top two vote getters should be the mods...unless Andrew doesnt want two mods.  Then it should go to the person with the most votes because the most people agree that that person should be a mod.  If that is tied, then the most first place votes wins.

sound fair?

It would be great if we could keep comments not directly pertaining to voting on the "BLSD Moderator Elections" thread available here: http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,38764.0.html

That thread is also the proper place for procedural questions.

I think the Op is doing a good job moderating this thread...However she won't do the job cause she will be doing 1L (some folks got their priorities screwed :-\ )

I think two mods are excessive, but what do I know  :-\
Since when do you get to vote for two people...you think election 2000 was close...This ain't the Heisman.

1.Blk Reign
2.Sands

But let me pontificate for a moment...I don't care who gets it.

**ALERT**: slight procedural change in the voting system, if there's no massive outcry of protest.  See the "BLSD Moderator Elections" thread (http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,38764.0.html) to discuss the change.  The original post has been edited to show the change.

People who have already cast a vote above should feel free to edit. I'm not doing anything with the vote totals until Monday evening.

I can't tally this.  It doesn't fit the format.  Please only vote in the aforementioned format so we can do this thing right.

As it stands now, I won't be counting this vote.  Feel free to edit.  Thanks for your attention to this matter.

Mobell good job with the organization.  I see its going very smoothly and very civilized.  I'm about to hop on a flight to chi town for an interview so I just wanted to drop a quick suggestion before I bounce...

...when blk and I had discussed the possibilities of moderating the board together, we had bainstormed creating a neutral account that the top two people can have access to in the event that Andrew is opposed to making 2 actual moderator accounts. That way 2 moderators can still make the necessary changes from the single moderator account and tag team the board together.  Just an idea.

Ya'll be easy. See ya Sunday.

good morning all and thanks to those who voted for me; much love  :-*  
I want to make it clear that I am not "running" for the position of moderator, I was drafted. ::)  As I've said before, I'm not going to get any kicks by having four stars by my name.  But black folk let's keep it real; the decision has already been made, the backdoor politics have won out.  A vote for me is a vote for revolution but we sho is happy about how things be, ain't that right?

This is an excellent point, but since your opponents have not posted their platforms here it is more fair and less "backdoor" to delete this and repost to the BLSD Moderator Elections thread.  This thread is for voting only. Thanks :-*

**RESULTS**
If all attempted votes are counted:

Agitator E:
1 First rank
4.5 Second ranks
5.5 votes

Blk_Reign:
16 First ranks
7.5 Second ranks
23.5 votes

Burning Sands:
8 First ranks
9.5 Second ranks
17.5 votes

Blank Mod:
0 First Ranks
1 Second Rank
1 vote

Scurvy Wench (non-nominee):
0.5 Second ranks
0.5 votes

Cali Rich (non-nominee):
1 First rank
1 vote

ClaireHuxtable2005 (non-nominee):
1 Second rank
1 vote

**If voters who only cast one vote are excluded, subtract 1 First rank from Blk_Reign.

**If voters who cast either/or votes for Mod are excluded, subtract 1 First rank from Blk_Reign, 1 First rank from Burning Sands, 0.5 Second rank from Blk_Reign, 0.5 Second rank from Burning Sands, 0.5 Second rank from AgitatorE, and 0.5 Second rank from Scurvy Wench.

**If voters who cast votes for non-nominees are excluded, subtract 1 First rank from Blk_Reign, 2 First ranks from Burning Sands, 1 First rank from Cali Rich, 1 Second rank from Blk_Reign, 1 Second rank from ClaireHuxtable2005, and 0.5 second ranks from Scurvy Wench.

**Original tally included either/or votes as 0.5 of a vote.  In the case of the person who voted for 3 people in a ranked fashion, the 1st rank vote was treated as a no vote and the second and third ranks were counted as first and second ranks, respectively.

**Total number of voters: 25.  Total number of votes: 50.  1 voter chose only 1 candidate; 1 person voted for 3 candidates; 2 people split votes for their second rank; 3 people (including one of the splitting voters and the 3-candidate voter) selected non-nominees.

It is my opinion that we should just let all of these votes count considering that subtracting a few votes here and there will not significantly change the outcome.  However, I included the above info just in case a BLSD member disputes that conclusion.  Feel free to re-tally according to your own criteria.

It appears that Blk_Reign and Sands are the people's choice for BLSD Mods.  Congratulations!  My job has been completed here - someone please feel free to use these results as necessary to make positive changes to this board.  Thanks for your cooperation! :)
