@GraceNote: How long after the end of the election phase do the results get announced? Does the meek STV algorithm run continuously in the background to calculcate who's winning? Or will it be done once all the votes are in?

I'm voting for @Emrakul because of his sense of humor. :P

@CodeNewbie We just run it once the election phase ends. It's generally a matter of human action time that determines when the results come in.

@GraceNote What is the SE policy on troll nominees? :P Because I had a strong urge to have a Trump style campaign ("Make Puzzling great again!") but then I caught up in things and gave it up because even though I planned to lose, I didn't want to do a half-assed campaign.

9. How would you deal with a user who produced a steady stream of valuable answers, but tends to generate a large number of arguments/flags from comments?

If you don't look like you're seriously planning to run, we withdraw the nomination. We can appreciate the idea of lightening the mood but there's other vectors to make that kind of approach.
 
Welp, I guess it's better to know for the future. :) Not that I'm all for trolling, but I guess this idea for my creative juices flowing in a major way. Better to check before spilling the milk than crying over spilled milk.

I think you can still give a funny answer to the Questionnaire as it is just a post on the meta
 
Yeah. Just put a header at the top indicating that it's not a serious note - that way, people who want to actually look for vote-stuffs can skip over if it they don't want to waste their time on it.

Being funny is good, but being sarcastic is dangerous. And selective sarcasm can lead to serious tragedy!
