Regional Poll • Cutie Mark Crusaders popularity contest! Yay!

The Principality of Trotterdam wrote:So, NationStates polls only allow voting for one option. There's no way to take second, last, etc. preferences into account. I've done some reading on better voting systems, but unfortunately NationStates has no convenient way of recording such an election. With 3 options, though, it's just barely possible to fake it, so I'm taking the opportunity for a demonstration. At the end of the poll, I'll manually tally the winner according to various voting systems, and we can compare how well they work. (Don't expect too much, though, it's likely most of them will give the same result unless votes are really weird.)RMB anchor: [url]http://www.nationstates.net/region=pony_lands/page=display_region_rmb?postid=20919910#p20919910[/url](Please don't cast more than one vote per real-life person, even if you're playing multiple nations.)

Voting opened 7 days ago and will close . Open to all nations. You cannot vote as you are not logged in.

Last poll: “Who is worst pony?”

Even with both of your votes not counting Rainbow Dash still "wins" 6-5, though.

Oh, Sisters can't vote in the same poll. I usually keep quiet here, but seriously? That is mucked up. :(

Wait, Sisters in real life, or Puppets?

Because it would be the puppets that are a problem.

The point is to poll our community's real-life opinions. It's not fair if you can have your opinion counted multiple times just because you're playing multiple nations.

If I were running a poll about the in-character characteristics of your nations, I might allow puppets to vote, but I haven't come up with an interesting poll of that nature yet.

Unfortunately, we have only your word on it whether you're really one person or two.

"Sister nation" sounds a bit fancy, which makes it sound like you're roleplaying, in that they're "sister nations" in-character. If you mean a nation that's played by your real-life sister, who is a separate person from you, then that's fine.

But like I said, in this case it doesn't matter much, since Rainbow Dash is still ahead, whether it's 6-5-1-1 or 8-5-1-1.

Post self-deleted by Trotterdam.

Wouldn't it be nice if we could determine both first and last place in the same poll?

Even since I've been given polling authority, I've gotten interested in different voting systems and the weaknesses of plurality voting, but there's not much I could really do about it, as NationStates just doesn't support anything else. While I can happily calculate the results myself, I still need some way to track actual votes, and NationStates's format makes that impractical for non-trivially-sized polls. Even 4 options would already have 24 possible rank orderings (and that's not even allowing equal rankings), which is too many to list out as individual options (NationStates's maximum is 12), and it only climbs factorially from there (5 options means 120 rank orderings and 6 options means 720, which is ridiculous).

But then, for a fun proof-of-concept demonstration, a trivially-sized poll may be enough. It would have to have exactly three candidates, though. And, conveniently, our last best pony poll (by our esteemed founder) shamefully neglected to include the Cutie Mark Crusaders as options. So now, finally, their time has come!

You'll find the poll above.

This will be more fun if we have as many (legit) votes as possible, so I'm opening this one up to other regions like Equestria. I'm also letting it run double-length.

I considered asking beforehoof whether anypony else here actually cares about voting systems, but then I figured it's easier for the people who don't care to just ignore me, rather than wasting time asking around whether I should waste anyone's time :)

No it doesn't, but I searched and found this one --> http://www.angelfire.com/ut/Xellena/Dian15.html There are several pages on that site you can choose from.
