Why hilarious? We had a full consensus in the election Committee to go
for S/N/O voting, it is a kind of standard procedure in the Wikimedia world.
However I must say that the results of this election are hilarious. The
person with the most support votes doesn't win because of oppose votes :D
For the algorithm (S/(S+O)) it has been used several times, but for me
it was new and I initiated a deeper look into it.
I looked into the alternative (S-O) which in this case would have made a
difference between Raystorm and Denny. But I also found that the
algorithm (S-O)/(S+O) actually gives the same result as the one we
used. So in the end I believe the algortihm used makes very good sense.
As with everything it could of course be debated, and any comment on
this would be welcome in
