CJ wrote:222 people voted last time and 198 have voted this time thus 24 people who voted last time have yet to vote this time. Add 24 to the 32 the Rat currently has gives 56 still 16 less than the 72 arty farty logo (2) has. The Rat is dead. The Rat is no more. It is a dead Rat.

Oliver wrote:But a few people only voted once or twice. It was UP to 3 votes. Therefore it is still a possibility. :coffee:

CJ wrote:Damn! Somebody was paying attention. :grin:

It's also possible that more people might vote this time than voted last time, being the final round. A bit of promotion might assist this, too. And we know that at least some people switched their vote from the rat to #1 or #2, there are probably others who chose a strategic vote in the first place, but they could well switch to the rat if the it started making a late break. Really, I'd say the rat's a virtual shoe-in. (Hmmm, perhaps I oughtn't mention the rat and shoes in the same sentence, I might encourage THWOTH.) To put that another way, I'd say the rat was still in. By far, even. One might say it were far in.

Sooo... #1 looks to have gained a fairly safe lead, given the voting is about to close soon.

Considering #1 has just under half the votes I'd suggest its lead is unassailable.

You can't calculate like that ;)
100-200 sockpuppets (both active and banned), a couple dozen banned members, a lot of passive lurkers and hundreds of members who haven't logged in for weeks/months. Leaves us with a couple hundred from which 215 voted, not too bad actually.

And those of us who were too late. . .

Seriously though, take off the banner that says you can vote. You can't- it's closed.

2017 members, only 215 total votes.

If we consider the voting as a survey, with a sample size of 215 out of a population of 2017 the 99% confidence interval is around 8.3.

So unless you have some reason to believe that the voters are an unrepresentative sample, or think we're going to see a late round of ballot-stuffing, I'm pretty confident in my prediction. :thumbup:

Edit: just realised after posting this voting had closed. Seems my prediction was right. With teh awesum trend-spotting powers I demonstrated I should get a job with political pollsters.
