Vote on the post that should win

Postby WarDaft » Wed Jan 11, 2012 3:45 pm UTC

Like "Post X wins" except we continuously vote on what X should be. The median is the winning post (rounded down if necessary.)

I'll start things off with a 137!

I vote 100! This should be interesting.
I have discovered a truly marvelous proof of this, which this margin is too narrow to contain.

No actually, because threads start with post 0. That would make this the winning post.

So let's start again.

You're thinking of replies, not posts. The aleph-nullth post wins.

I say post "by UniqueScreenname" wins.

Oh, well, would you look that that. :shock: It was so unexpected. :D

Are we allowed to vote multiple times? In that case I vote 1 again.

I'd say every time we pass the voted post it's reasonable to vote again.
