EDIT: The issue is present on mobile phone with Android/Samsung, both in mobile and desktop views. Issue is absent on Win10/Firefox88.0, 64bit.
2nd edit: Rechecked that this is indeed still the case. Election page also looks very different now, after the election is over. On Android/Samsung (mobile and desktop views), I can only see my choices in the election. Absent on Win8.1Pro/Firefox88.0, 64bit.
Recommendation for the Election tab:
- perhaps add some additional information on the weights given to various voting scenarios available to voters.
More specifically, a voter can currently order the candidates according to preference but may also omit users from selection. In fact, a voter is encouraged to not select users who they think eould make poor moderators.
So one is naturally led to compare various scenarios, e.g.,
select exactly 1 nominee, leave others unselected;
order exactly 2 nominees, leave others unselected;
more generally, order exactly $k$ nominees, leave $n - k$ unselected;
order all nominees;
select no nominees.
I could not currently find information on how these scenarious contrast with one another or how they affect the outcome. Here is the "Learn more" window opened:
For instance, if there were, say, candidates A, B, C, D, E, is there a difference between ranking just A and B (in that order), or ranking all candidates A, B, C, D, E (in that order)?
- If this information (formula, weights) is available somewhere, adding a link on the "Learn more" window would perfectly suffice. Perhaps a few played out scenarios in a linked Meta post would be a good idea.
