It should be a public poll for sure, people should take responsibility for who they select imo.

I don't see the need for three ballots, but don't oppose to the idea either.

adds to the drama and tension, the way we like it at MTF

I too would like to see a public vote, no need for secrecy, even though it might mean we get less votes overall.

This is good; if people are not willing to take responsibilty for their vote, they should not be voting in the first place imo. Making the poll anonymous will give people a sort of freedom to vote for whoever if they're not sure - that is not what we want, is it?

Are real life political election votes made public or kept anonymous?

If anything, I think keeping it anonymous would encourage more people to take responsibility and vote, which is what we want? Isn't it?

I see no advantage in making votes public, apart from satisfying the candidates' desire to be nosey.

Who voted for whom is officially documented. On MTF, if the poll is anonymous there's no way for anyone to know that, even opening up the possibility of double accounts voting.

And no, we don't want many people to vote for the sake of it, we want people to vote consciously. Getting their vote 'seen' by everyone will only further encourage them to not just vote for the sake of it.

Lenders is one of the most objective guys on the board when he's serious whilst djokovicgonzalez, viruzzz, Jverweij and The Bulldog would be in my second group of favourites. Some of the other names would make me consider asking for a permaban...

As for the number of ballots, the only issue with one would be too much choice and the vote of 1-2 people swinging the decision. If only 20 people vote in a 10-man field, someone can win with 3 votes :/. 2 ballots sounds reasonable, 3 won't be too much either.

The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

Whatever it is that you choose to do, hurry up about it.

Any one of these names would be fine for the job as far as I´m concerned.

I suggest every forummer reads this and selects a name not mentioned by Looner and with any luck he will be gone fairly soon.
