@NikeDattani Those are generally the options. It's difficult to know what you consider lies between being so bad that the CMs should remove them from the election and being something that you think everyone voting should be aware of so that they can avoid voting for that person.
In an effort to transparency, I will say that I've removed some such comments during this election because they were voiced in a rude manner and hid half of the actual situation that was the cause of the issue. It's perfectly acceptable to address situations where someone has behaved in a way that's unfitting for a moderator but it must be done openly and honestly and avoid being outright rude.
 
sometimes conversations over the internet are brief, or to short to fully transfer a fully fleshed out though. sometimes asking for clarification about issues or asking "what if's" might be a good way to understand the thought process of the person and allowing others to see the thought process as well

@pacmaninbw Yup, I saw (and removed my comment earlier)
Was any reason given for Thomas Ward's withdrawal?
 
@rolfl Until you mentioned it, I didn't notice it. I hope my question didn't chase them away.
 
@rolfl Not publicly in any of the channels I know him to frequent.

Well, the voting definitely changed.
> Drag and drop or click your selections in order of preference, with the most desirable candidate as first choice.

You should only rank the candidates you think would make good moderators.
 
ohhhh, so they now allow arbitarily many candidates?
 
I don't see any way to commit my selections.
 
@pacmaninbw Automagic AFAIK a message appears at the top about auto saving
 
check the top right of the page
 
8:19 PM
I saw the autosave breifly

We'll just be guinea pigs. No problem.
 
@Vogel612 Up to 10, I think.
Because the rest has dropped out by now.
> In the election phase, up to 10 candidates advance to final community voting. Candidates are displayed in random order.
 
well, that's what primaries used to pull down to, if they happened
 
For those interested in knowing how many votes have been cast at any moment: a rule of thumb is to take the current amount of Constituent badges and subtract it by the start count of the election. In this case, that's 1453.
Please note that caching will make sure the numbers are always lagging behind by quite a bit.
For example, none have been given out yet while I'm quite sure the first votes have come in.
Either way, find the current count here.

Good luck to all the candidates!
 
@Xnero Thanks! and Thank you for asking constructive questions during the nomination phase!

@Xnero Thank you.
@Vogel612 @Mast I can't answer the comments here
 
@pacmaninbw What do you mean?
 
pacmaninbw is a candidate...
 
Licensing questions MIT versus SE.
Not election business.
@Vogel612 Can you please remove my last 3 posts from this room.
 
9:05 PM
not gonna pull out the hardware for three messages...
 
I just really wanted to get someone else's eyes on a question.
OK
 
I mean .. I am pingable in the 2nd :)
 
And I did post there first, just didn't ping.
 
9:21 PM
~130 votes in the first hour, it seems
 
9:45 PM
@Vogel612 Yup :D Three was a bit narrow.
Important thing, though - don't vote for people you don't like. Don't feel like you need to rank everyone.
