This is a TRIAL of the multiselect voting process. If everyone votes responsibly here (picking one or two maybe three to vote for and no more than that) then this will work.

NOTE: THESE RESULTS WILL NOT DETERMINE THE WINNER OF THE JUNE CHALLENGE...THEY ARE ONLY TO EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF THE MULTISELECT VOTING CAPABILITY. TO HELP MAKE THIS SCIENTIFIC...ONE OF YOUR MULTIPLE VOTES SHOULD BE THE MAP YOU VOTED FOR IN THE JUNE CHALLENGE VOTING.

Refer to http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?t=2367 for challenge and voting guidelines.

To help keep everyone honest...I've made the votes public...everyone can see what everyone voted for...so keep it honest...I chose three.

I chose three too (as can be seen) I am curious to know whether voting for yourself makes a difference in a multi select vote trial. The reason is that this multi select is best used on large array of entries so if there were 20 entries and 30 votes and the entrants voted for themselves then the vote is cast by the remaining 10. Its also interesting to note whether the sum of the second choices will add to more than the main choice. Running this in parallel with the single vote system should show that up well.

Oh. Hmmm... I didn't read the instructions very closely and voted for four.

I voted for three: Rlucci, Torq and Redrobes...No you didn't. At least, not according to the voting results ! :D hah ha, maybe its the interface to the vote casting that is where it needs changing. :?:

I choose those that I chose because they win in their respective category: town, land and dungeon.

This kind of voting would help determine the 3 winners of each month for the 3rd, 2nd and 1st place.

At least so far, the results between the two are different. Close, but a different persons in the lead as it stands right now. I voted for GP, Torq, and Mid.

Click on the number of votes for any entry, and it will change to show who cast votes for which entry.

This is looking pretty darn accurate Robbie. It seems to be perfectly mirroring the single selection.

I think next month's challenge should use this method, and I think keeping the votes public will keep people honest so I would say leave it as such.

You should have Gold Silver and Bronze compass awards.... that would be kinda cool... but then again.... too many awards may start to give a sense of less accomplishment ... if that makes sense to anyone...

As of this moment, it appears I put Ravells into the number one spot with 18 votes. Very, very close.

You're only supposed to use 3 votes, not 18 !! :D

Just one vote from me, for the Stormlit Cloister (ravells), though all of the entries are awesome in their way.

It's probably the case that the message-board polling software doesn't support it, but I'd love the ability to cast weighted votes. As in ... everyone has (for example) 6 votes each, and can choose to spread them around, or clump them together, as they please. Given that kind of option, with a 6-vote spread I'd have laid 3 parts on ravells, and distributed a point each to Talroth, NeonKnight and Gamerprinter (it's a darn shame Talroth had to leave his unfinished; it glows with potential).

Here is the comparison of single votes to (normalized) multi-select voting:

Those are really interesting results RobA. Thanks for putting that chart together.
