Voter count

Postby fluffy » Sat Sep 12, 2009 1:23 pm

It would be interesting if archive pages also cataloged the number of unique voters on each fight, in addition to the total number of votes cast. Maybe even with a histogram of vote counts - I always wonder how many people vote for just 1 person, and how many vote for half or more, for example.

Very interesting. I brought up the same issue nine months ago and was completely ignored. doesn't that make this thread redundant?

Nope. Sometimes you (in this case, the collective "you") have to ask for something a bunch of times, and then one day it just makes sense to the powers that be and there it is. It's a very squishy process sometimes...

or, more likely, it depends on who does the asking.

...or, after the first mention, the powers that be go "Hmmm... how can I get this to work" and spend a good long chunk of time maybe figuring it out, alongside everything else they already do in their lives. Then, down the road, someone else brings it up again, and the snarking begins. Development shit ain't snap your fingers on-demand instant. Especially with an existing infrastructure. :wink:

Especially with THIS infrastructure, yes.

Sorry I didn't see the previous suggestion buried deep in an already-old thread.
