That's my guess. Not everyone voting (just like in real life elections) is going to follow every Q&A by a candidate and oftentimes will go by those they know or those whose platform they agree w/ & won't dig deeper into the questions. Some will, but the majority won't. Shrug. It's been that way in the past; it will be that way in the future (both in real life & on FT).

Cheers. Sharon

Thanks anyway, Bro'.

It's the thought that counts.

Are candidates no longer supposed to be listed in alphabetical order by username? They were until the post counts were added.

It's NOT about post count. It's about number of views on candidates' platforms. We have 28 candidates this year. For example, how many views are there for this following candidate? Can IB provide the number?

No, sorry, we do not track views and the current view counts would be very much incomplete given that the voting has started. Will definitely need to revisit requirements prior to the next voting event.

- I've rolled out the change to display "post counts"

Thanks

Now the ballot appears to be alphabetical again and post counts have been removed. It looks like it did before the post counts were added.

That plus the fact that SkiAdcock is the most engaged and diligent TalkBoard member we've seen in some time.
