re: What is a Majority I started this over at dKosopedia (Here.) James Green-Armytage recently e-mailed me back and may be interested in pursing something along these lines. I have recently begun to link the electoral terms to articles here. Wegerje 10:18, 15 Mar 2005 (PST)

I think that's a great topic, but why not just put it at majority? DanKeshet
At Wikipedia, we tend to use singular forms, because they're more likely to result from accidental linking ("But does IRV really result in a majority winner?", "I won a majority on the third count"), but really, it's not that important. I think that's a good place to start. May I import some of the text from the dKos page? Maybe we can continue from there, working on the linked pages. DanKeshet 19:08, 15 Mar 2005 (PST)
I whole-heartedly support Majority. What's next? -- As for the dKosopedia stuff import at will, although maybe Green-Armytage is the one to ask? When I said James Green-Armytage had emailed me it had nothing to do with this project but the one at dKosopedia. I have only the barest of a relationship with him. I will be glad to contact him as regards this project, unless you have a better relationship and would prefer to contact him. Or we can approach him in concert. I will search my files to see who M__ and R__ are as maybe they would like to join the effort. I'm a bit behind on my Election Methods reading so have you posted this project there yet?

I announced it a while ago on em; I think it's time to announce it on Wikipedia. (Part of my plan in announcing it on Wikipedia is to clean the original research off of Wikipedia and bring it here until it's proven.) If you check out Special:Listusers, you'll see that some of the em regulars have taken accounts. Let's you and I work on majority a couple days, then call in a few others. How's that?
