Just to be clear: I think you (Election committee) did very good job. Inside of the stable circumstances, like they are now, It's very useful to use a voting system which would prefer new people. I just said that this system is likely to be harmful if used for the future elections. On the long run, Schulze stability (basically, electing the mainstream) vs. this variant of approval by selection gives more weight on Schulze. But I am sure that the standing EC will find something more appropriate for the next elections. I think also that it's valid idea that EC chooses voting system according to the needs of particular point of time. For example, this time it was about giving opportunity to the new candidates. Next time it could be more balanced. If you notice that Board is unstable (for example, small number of those with more than two years of experience), then Schulze again. _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
