15 mins...
@Casebash wait, what? Disable chat until chat is used?
 
12:57 AM
Two minutes left.
I wonder if the results come out immediately.
 
I think Casebash means that chat for specific *.SX sites should be disabled until the number of users for that site reaches "critical mass". Though it is slightly unclear to me whether that would actually help.
 
20!
Finished
> 394 voters were eligible and 174 voted
 
Ah. I was wondering what you were counting down to.
 
Yeah, well, pretty uninteresting stuff right? :)
 
Heh. Is it published somewhere the file format for the results?

I guess it's something that OpenSTV can take immediately

Awesome. Congrats Willie!
 
Ah. Thanks.
 
Well, my 2nd and 3rd choices won =)
 
And now I'm going to go read-up on Single Transferable Vote to figure out what that output actually meant. =p
 
Only one of my choices won, but it's all good. :D
 
1:12 AM
Nite.
 
Good night. @J.M. if it makes you feel any better, reading the STV system and the above out-put, Akhil and I were basically in a dead-tie until the very end.
Well, I should head to sleep too.
 
Hmm, yeah... the only disappointing part of this for me is the voter turnout. Oh well.

@J.M. you just needed 150 rep to vote... the lower the bar, the more likely you're counting in people that don't really care or know
I cared about having at least one diamond that didn't come from MO for example :P

@badp: I'd opine it's more "don't care" than "don't know" ; there were banners... though to be fair they weren't that attention-getting. :)
