Eleventh Doctor didn’t use any hard and fast rules that I know of. He generally seemed to admit members who contributed to the overall activity and quality of the Debate Hall, regardless of their personal beliefs. As the legitimate successor of Eleventh, the interim leader will hopefully continue his customs, and of course add their own flair to the position as well.

And the election is over! \:D/ Thanks for voting, everyone! With 13 total votes, participation was slightly more than I was expecting. I'll give some background about the results before announcing the winner:

In order to win the election, someone must get over 50% of the vote. In each round, the candidate with the lowest number of votes will be eliminated, and their votes will be distributed to the next candidates on their ballots, until someone gets a majority of the votes. For example, take the following ballot:

1. Woody
2. Samantha14
3. Belle
4. TigerShadow
5. Blitz
6. shnoodlec
7. SirWhit
8. Miss Friendship
9. Tea Ess
10. Audrey

Woody gets the vote to start with, since he was ranked first. However, if he gets eliminated, the vote will go to Sam, and if she is eliminated, it will go to Belle, and so on. This way, the vote is never "wasted."

This would not normally be an issue with Instant Runoff Voting, but because of the small number of voters, there were a fair amount of ties between candidates. To break ties, I used the sum of all the ranks you were given. For example, if 6 people gave you a #1 rank, 3 gave you a #2 rank, and 4 gave you a #3 rank, your total score would be 6*1 + 3*2 + 4*3 = 24. In the event of a tie, the person with the lower overall score wins. I felt this was the most fair method, given that it takes into account the candidate's overall popularity.

In terms of #1 ranks, TigerShadow got the most at 4, and Belle and Woody each received 2. Blitz, shnoodlec, Miss Friendship, SirWhit, and myself all got one #1 rank.

Keep in mind that getting (or not getting) a #1 rank doesn't necessarily reflect the overall popularity of a candidate. For example, Samantha14 got one of the best overall scores, as well as the most combined #1, #2, and #3 ranks, even without getting a #1 rank.


The results after the 1st round of scoring:
TigerShadow - 31%
Woody - 15%
Belle - 15%
Tea Ess - 8%
shnoodlec - 8%
SirWhit - 8%
Miss Friendship - 8%
Blitz - 8%

Audrey and Samantha14 are both eliminated, with neither of them having received #1 ranks. I have ordered the candidates by their number of #1 ranks, and secondarily by the sum of all of their ranks.


Round 2:
TigerShadow - 31%
Woody - 15%
Belle - 15%
Miss Friendship - 15%
Tea Ess - 8%
shnoodlec - 8%
SirWhit - 8%


Blitz is eliminated, and the #2 candidate on the corresponding ballot is Miss Friendship, so she receives the vote, bringing her up to 15% of the total votes and tying her with Woody and Belle.


Round 3:
TigerShadow - 31%
Belle - 23%
Woody - 15%
Miss Friendship - 15%
Tea Ess - 8%
shnoodlec - 8%

SirWhit is eliminated, and the vote goes to Belle, bringing her up to 23%.


Round 4:
TigerShadow - 31%
Belle - 23%
Miss Friendship - 23%
Woody - 15%
Tea Ess - 8%

shnoodlec is eliminated, with her vote going to Miss Friendship.


Round 5:
TigerShadow - 38%
Belle - 23%
Miss Friendship - 23%
Woody - 15%

I am eliminated, and since the #2 choice on that ballot was shnoodlec, who was eliminated, the vote goes to the #3 choice, Tiger.


Round 6:
TigerShadow - 46%
Miss Friendship - 31%
Belle - 23%

Woody is eliminated. His votes are split, with Tiger and Miss Friendship each receiving an additional 8% of the total vote.


Round 7:
TigerShadow - 62%
Miss Friendship - 38%

Belle is eliminated next, and her vote share is distributed between Tiger and Miss Friendship, with them getting 15% and 8% respectively.


Congratulations to our new O̶v̶e̶r̶l̶o̶r̶d Interim Leader:
TigerShadow! \:D/



To balance transparency with potential hard feelings, if anyone wants to look at the raw survey results (for Question 2 only, so the ballots remain secret), I can send you a link via PM.

Oh yeah, I forgot to add: if Tiger doesn't want this prestigious and high salaried position, I can do an election recount as if she had never been entered. I just wanted to forewarn everyone that the results could be quite different, since all of Tiger's votes would end up going to other candidates.

Does our new esteemed ruler need a secretary with an unlimited supply of sarcastic insults and a tacky belief system? \:D/
