    Ollie decided that the system will be as follows:
    Everyone on the first page of the member's list will get to nominate,
    Everyone with more than 300 posts will get to vote.
    We are still debating it

    Ok how about we just select 50 random members from say the first 5 pages and let them vote.

    then make it so that only people with accounts before today can vote...or make it a public poll, then the mods can check any dodgy IP addresses.
    it would be a right pain to check tbh, you'd have to make it public + i don't think it should be. nice in theory, but not very practical.

    You work on the assumpsion that new members are 'stupid' and old members are 'clever'. To me the reverse seems true.
    i think he work on the assumption that new members don't know so much about the rest of the members and therefore can't vote

    Doesn't really deal with the issue of exclusion

    that's extremely condescending.
    The idea of only the 1st page of members voting because they have more "experience of the forum" is flawed - Sire is on the first page and much as i like the guy, he has only been here a week.

    Exactly, look lighten up, its just a forum. SO what if some 'newbies' vote.

    Still, he's probably been around for more hours in total than most other members combined!

    I know but if we are using PMs to collate the votes, if everyone votes it will be too much work for the counters. I just thought it might be fairer than the first 50 people.

    If we chose that method than your idea sounds good. Try telling Whitey its not certain he can vote tho.

    you've just contradicted yourself.

    it's only a forum, for christ's sake.

    i don't mind counting votes, all it is is a case of putting it in a table.

    thats not the plan, the idea is that the 1st page is a suitable sample of the forums opinions for nominations

    then everyone over 300 (most active people) will be able to vote

    We could have a blunket style immagration test to decide who is allowed to vote. All you need to do is answer correctly some simple questions like these.

    1. Who is the oldest current moderator?

    2. What did mr white suggest about ickle_katy?

    3. How do you check your rep?

    4. How do you add an attachment?

    5. Can moderators ban IP addresses?

    6. What is the title of the longest thread ever?

    7. Who was earlier Bloodhound or Maskall?

    8. What is the current level of posts for a overlord in training?

    9. Who is has the current highest posts per day?

    10. How do you display the second page of the memberlist?
