offical name of this voting method

Can we change this to Sequential Monroe Voting (since that's it's official name?). On any electoral reform forum you can call SMV sequential Monroe or STV single transferable and people will know what you mean but it would be weird for the electowiki page on single transferable vote to just be called single transferable.

Quota and Reweighting methodology

Is it necessary to use Hare quota? With Droop quota, the method can satisfy the Droop proportionality criterion. Droop vs. Hare should be an option depending on what type of representation you are looking for.

Is it necessary to zero out ballots that rate a seat winner above the quota-threshold rating? What if you reweight all ballots rating the winner at and above the quota-threshold rating by the same factor, sufficient to remove one quota of ballots? Does that cause the method to lose IIA and monotonicity? (--Araucaria (talk) 19:33, 16 January 2020 (UTC))
