Draft 4

Changes in upcoming Draft 4:

  1. (unchanged)
  2. (unchanged)
  3. (unchanged)
  4. If there is one or more candidates in the Plurality Candidate Pool, attempt to add an equal number qualified candidates to the Opposition Candidate Pool, evaluating each Non-advanced Candidate using the following steps
    • 4a. Find the Non-advanced Candidate with the highest approval score.
      • If this candidate has less than 40% approval, no further candidates qualify to be added to the Opposition Candidate Pool. Proceed to step 5.
      • If this candidate has less than 40% approval, determine if this candidate qualifies for the Opposition Candidate Pool in step 5.
    • 4b. (unchanged)
  5. If the Ballot Satisfaction Score is greater than 50%, skip to step 6. If the Ballot Satisfaction Score is under 50%, ensure at least two candidates advance to the general election using the following steps:
    • 5a. If there are no candidates in the Opposition Candidate Pool, find the Non-advanced Candidate with the highest approval score. If this candidate increases the Ballot Satisfaction Score by more than 10% (the "Candidate Differentiation Threshold"), add this candidate to the Opposition Candidate Pool, and skip to step 6. Otherwise, advanced to step 5b.
    • 5b. Consider each Non-advanced Candidate in order of approval score. Find the first candidate who increases the Ballot Satisfaction Score by more than the Candidate Differentiation Threshold (10%), and add this candidate to the Opposition Candidate Pool, and skip to step 6. Otherwise, advance to step 5c.
    • 5c. Find the Non-advanced Candidate with the highest approval rating. Add this candidate to the Opposition Candidate Pool, and advance to step 6.
  6. Candidate selection is complete. Advance all candidates in the Supermajority Candidate Pool, the Plurality Candidate Pool, and the Opposition Candidate Pool to the general election.

I've started Draft 4 with this 2018-12-19 response to Ted Stern, which are reflected in the changes above. There may be other changes before a Draft 4 is published, and I plan to use the space above to reflect the the changes I make. -- RobLa (talk) 23:03, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
