[[Dr. Edmonds]], would you mind if I move the nonpartisan cardinal definitions to the [[cardinal PR]] article? It doesn't seem like they need to take up all the space in this article; a link can be given. I'd rather focus the nonpartisan section on discussing things like nonpartisan vs partisan, etc. [[User:BetterVotingAdvocacy|BetterVotingAdvocacy]] ([[User talk:BetterVotingAdvocacy|talk]]) 20:03, 24 April 2020 (UTC)
:: [[User:BetterVotingAdvocacy|BetterVotingAdvocacy]] I would think the bulk of it can be moved to the [[cardinal PR]] article. However, it should likely be replaced with something and a link to the [[cardinal PR]] article. These definitions do apply to non-partisan and non-Cardinal systems. For example STV is in the Monroe theory and Jefferson Party list is in the Thiele theory. I have been meaning to do a whole rewrite to really give the context. I think that the current state of that section is likely too focused on cardinal methods but I think this page needs some section about the theory of PR. People basically know what is meant by PR and this needs to be written down. The measure like Gallagher index and criteria like Hare Quota are not enough to really get the idea of the true meaning. If you want to try to write that up please do otherwise this is a useful placeholder as it covers much of what needs to be there. --[[User:Dr. Edmonds|Dr. Edmonds]] ([[User talk:Dr. Edmonds|talk]]) 20:44, 24 April 2020 (UTC)
== Addition of specific systems ==
[[User:RobLa|RobLa]], You recently added many methods which get high PR. I do not think it is wise to do this as the page is already long and this has potential for explosion. There are 100s of systems. I think it would be better to list the classes of systems like [[Party-list proportional representation]], [[Cardinal PR]], [[Mixed electoral system]] or [[Multi-member system]]. They all have their own pages and the variations can be discussed there. --[[User:Dr. Edmonds|Dr. Edmonds]] ([[User talk:Dr. Edmonds|talk]]) 02:42, 7 April 2021 (UTC)
