    Maybe that tells you that UKIP don't have a lot of support? :P
    I got this last time and we still got 69 votes, equalling with the Socialists

    Yes, I understand. That's still not "a lot of support", compared to the likes of Labour and the tories. However, UKIP seems to be more controversial and so you probably get more actively negative actions from people who don't support you compared to other parties.

    I don't think the Liberals deserve m/any seats on that basis then, you have been pretty poor this term with activity. Labour, Greens, Socialists have all done well as have the government to a lesser degree.

    Voters should decide how many seats we all get in a general election. By-elections can then be held during parliaments to remove inactive MPs and incentivise activity.

    Please don't lecture us on activity, every party peaks and drops over time. We were consistently the most active party last parliament but not this time. Next parliament, we will improve. Every party here has experienced low activity at some point and I anticipate the most active parties this parliament will slow down as ideas for legislation decrease.

    It's not a 'lecture' about activity. You simply and plainly stated that "activity and contributions here are often overlooked". Were they not overlooked, it is entirely fair to say that the Liberals would/deserve to get less seats. Of course activity vacillates over time, but don't complain about the system being unfair on parties without RL counterparts when your party is lacking the actual activity to back it up.

    I'm going to guess Tuesday but that's not a guarantee.

    This might have already been asked but could we get a definitive snapshot of the votes cast before the mass PM, for comparison to the result, as a means of gauging the effects of the mass PM on the vote breakdown? (that is, to see if the influx of less MHoC-savvy voters attracted by the mass PM causes a shift towards the 'name brand' parties)

    Absolutely, I'll be taking screenshots of the poll regularly so that we can do some nice post-election analysis again.

    Will there be an "exit poll" as I remember being used under Metro's tenure?

    Do you think we could have updates on the vote tally during the election itself? It may induce activity. (Although I guess it could take some of the suspense out of the final day.)

    I considered it last time but decided against it, I prefer to keep all of the election business in one thread plus I want to avoid confusing anyone with several polls, it might end in people voting in the exit poll and not the real one. Unlikely I know, but stranger things have happened when people are in a rush.

    I'm reluctant to do that in case it skews the decisions of voters, all will be revealed when the poll is closed though.
