The Full Elections for CSM8 have been delayed 1 day to allow for the qualified candidates to regroup after the Pre-election.

The Election for CSM8 will now run from April 4th till midnight on April 18th.

Additionally, we would like to release the code we will be using to tally the election for review by the public. It can be found here

The input format (.blt) is described in section 3.1 of this document, though the silly thing about 20 characters isn’t followed ‘cause modern PCs can handle big names.

Please post your feedback and comments on the code in this thread.

Seriously though, thanks for the transparency.

Glad to see Veritas wrote the code in Python. Means I can actually make sense of it. Big smile

I'll keep an eye on this thread for any feedback or correctness challenges. If anyone feels the need to be private about it, you can feel free to Eve-mail me and we'll work from there.

As mentioned in Skype, "talley" -> "tally"

The doc says candidate names are quoted in the .blt file, but you aren't removing any quotes (not a big deal)

This just in: I suck at speling.

The names are outputted from this script with the quotes intact.

and you just gave me something to do this next weekend, implement this in a proper programming language: java

so we can have a shadow program calculating things in parallel... just to make sure Big smile

Your first sentence has a contradiction. Everyone knows the only proper programming language is COBOL.

Here is an alternate python implementation of Wright-STV. It was developed entirely independently of CCP Veritas' script, but he kindly sent me some sample blt files and their outputs so I could make my output appear in the same format.

I've tested it on a few .blt files (a complex one is included) and it generates the exact same output as Fozzie's.

It also has some more verbose output options. See the comments in the header of the file for instructions.

Real men program in APL.... using only one line for the program... entered using a morse-code key.

I also have in my possession a few extra passwords to the special server, CCP Fozzie set up. That contains his special view of EVE and how it should be played and handled. Completely rebuilt form the ground up.

Passwords will be handed out on a first come first served basis, so be quick if you want a most excellent experience.

Total brainfart. I humbly apologise for accidentally confusing one awesome dev for another, equally but differently, awesome dev.

I am also glad Veritas wrote it, for entirely different reasons. I have confidence his code actually works first try.

I also hope to be a benefitiary...

But seriously, the code looks good and I'm glad it's being put out there. Thanks again for running the show (Even if certain members of the current CSM haven't had enough of their caffeinated beverage of choice).

With users having to make a list of 14 candidates (well, they don't HAVE to, but it's best if they do), I highly recommend that they use Vote Match to make it a little easier on themselves. :)
