Hi all!

@ᴍᴀsᴛᴇʀᴍɪɴᴅ_ᴇᴅ The voting process is supposed to be in the comments, right? I mean, if there is no comment yet, then to vote a user should post a comment. If there already is a vote, further votes should be added as votes on the existing comment?
For example if somebody already posted a comment "My vote is - H16" and I want to vote for the same question, then I do not post the same comment again, but I upvote that comment. Do I understand it correctly_

@MartinSleziak votes are counted thru comments, yes. if there is a comment already for your vote, an "upvote" to that comment isn't a vote. add your own comment to vote. Does that make sense?
 
The oscars made no sense.

@skullpetrol neither does Steve Harvey, but we let him go :D

@skullpetrol the weather is so cold, Steve Harvey says it's hot!
 
@ᴍᴀsᴛᴇʀᴍɪɴᴅ_ᴇᴅ It seems rather cumbersome way to go, if we assume that many people take part. For example, if 50 people took part in voting, it would mean manually counting 50 comments and how many of them are of each form.
But if there are less than 10 people who take part, then this is doable.
Personally, I would suggest upvoting comments as an easier way to count votes. Something similar was used on several sites which had community polls.

@MartinSleziak True. Where was this when PoC was being discussed? We could have done it this way. I'm anticipating the ~10 scenario to be honest. If there were 50, then upvote/downvote on the matchup would have been the way to go although that system isn't designed for such a process.
 
@ᴍᴀsᴛᴇʀᴍɪɴᴅ_ᴇᴅ Well, I can still post the suggestion as an answer there. If it gains some support, it could be used at least in the following rounds.
But I agree that if we are talking about 5-10 people, that it does not make much difference.
 
user46190
@MartinSleziak Yes to both points.
 
Ok, so I'll post the suggestion as an answer.

@MartinSleziak We can see how it works for this round, and as you suggest, implement your suggestion in later rounds. There was another site (not SE) that counted votes thru comments, and there were 300+ votes per matchup. I'm sure that was a pain.
