Quote from: Figleaf on December 31, 2014, 02:15:38 PMHours to go only and we still have no winner. However, I have discovered a painful flaw in the method of calculating the threshold for determining winners. The present formula is W=(0.5/100)*M in normal people's words, you need 0.5% of the membership (M) to win (W). The problem with that formula is that the more nominations you have, the less the chance of passing the threshold becomes. That is not the intention and it would be unfair to those who happen to have written great articles in a productive year.Although the hour is late, I propose to amend the rules, so that the formula becomes W=(0.5/100)*M*(V/N), in plainspeak: correct the threshold with the number of votes (V) over the number of nominations (N). That change would cancel the influence of the number of nominations. It also gives us the flexibility to adjust the number of votes in years with many or very few nominations. If you are willing to accept this change (please do), the threshold becomes 8 votes [12*(5/8)].With apologies for not having noted this before.Peter
