As discussed on IRC, 7 votes is a majority when one discounts abstentions, which is what the Citizen-Initiator has always done.

As much as I feel you Delfos, Cormac is correct.

This from the guy who screamed bloody murder when we didn't include an Abstain option. XD

So if you want to eliminate the Abstain option, why didn't you brought it up during the debate? hm? What a flawed approach Allama, keep hammering the same key.

Anyway, I did suggest a better approach to this topic, did anyone care, ever? The result of this vote is clearly craptastic, mostly because I disliked the change in the first place, but it's evident only 7 out of 19 actually wanted it.

Never said I wanted to eliminate Abstain. Nice try, Trollfos!  ;)

np Trollama, neither did I, Abstain is a self-winning case, it has been present in most votes, and this one probably has a record count. There really is no problem with the Abstain vote.

What there is is the chosen approach for this vote, I wish to correct it asap.

A. Don't steal my crappy jokes. I need them to pretend to be funny.

B. No one said you did. What are you even responding to?

What is the precise problem with the "chosen approach" and what exact approach would you favor instead? Not sure I understand what you mean here.

what a terrible idea. I'd much rather a Solnath, a Bara, a Xyrael, an Allama Lecture Hall.

Quote
[21:36] <@Delfos> I think people want to change the name of the Lecture Hall
[21:36] <@Delfos> just not to Limi

allong with more discussion on the issue, which apparently Allama wouldn't be a bad option.

While I appreciate the name drop... what does this have to do with the poll approach you dislike?
