Topic: Voting for the 2013 Phoenix awards

Mischa, can we get a poll set up to vote for the Phoenix awards?

How many people typically vote? If we get less votes then people being voted for, the candidates may need to be broken into groups. For example, there are 13 people nominated for Player of the Year. If we only get 15 voters, we may want to consider breaking those 13 into 3 or 4 groups, so that it is more likely voting isn't spread out so much as to make the results useless. A "primary" of sorts.

The idea here is to narrow the lists down to 3-4 candidates, who are then put to a final vote/decision process to determine the winner.

These are the nominations:

Player of the Year
SoapyMac AKA Dale
Bluetressym
Amanda Bond
Misty Wilson
Jason Andersen
Mischa Brendel
Dondi 'dratliff' Ratliff
Nick Buchanan
Robert 'RLongtin' Longton

Could you please correct my surname? It is Borgo, without the "i". Thanks!

Re: Voting for the 2013 Phoenix awards

Maybe have rounds of voting? Top so many move on...

Re: Voting for the 2013 Phoenix awards

Sorry Giorgio, that was copy/paste from the nominations thread. It's fixed above now!

Misty: Yes, my thoughts exactly. The first round (or 'primary' or whatever it would be called) would narrow the list.

I'd like to keep this thread about setting up the voting instead of how the awards are run. Let's move further discussion about how the awards themselves are run to this thread: http://www.phoenix-rp.com/viewtopic.php?id=2292
(I've responded to you there, Misty).

Re: Voting for the 2013 Phoenix awards

Do we have an assistant EVC, since Mischa is unavailable?

Re: Voting for the 2013 Phoenix awards

Bumping for the new EVC. Kevin, can we do this alongside the GC elections (or before, since we already have all the 'candidates', we just need the vote)?

Re: Voting for the 2013 Phoenix awards

I'm good for getting it done. Not quite sure how to do it yet, but give me a day to poke around.

Re: Voting for the 2013 Phoenix awards

Now that Mischa is back, you may be able to ping him to get instructions for how to set up the rank-pair voting.

Re: Voting for the 2013 Phoenix awards

Its all set up. Now the question is to run this alongside the General Coordinator Elections or just start it now and finish it?

Re: Voting for the 2013 Phoenix awards

I say finish it! They're already how long overdue?

Re: Voting for the 2013 Phoenix awards

Roughly 5 months.

I'd say finish it as well. Even if they are fairly close together, they are two very different things and I'd rather not see confusion on electing the GC vs. the Phoenix awards.
