Talk:Descending Acquiescing Coalitions

From electowiki

Is the only distinction from DSC tied rankings?

This system sounds like it's the same as DSC, except acquiescing requires A >= B, whereas DAC requires A > B.

If this is correct, should the two articles be merged?

Procedurally, the only difference in the coalition support numbers arise from how truncated and equal-ranked ballots are handled. But this difference is what makes one of them pass LNHelp and the other pass LNHarm. They're thus procedurally similar but behave differently, and Woodall considers them to be separate methods, so I'd be inclined to keep them as two separate articles on Electowiki. On Wikipedia? I guess not - see my comment on Talk:River. Kristomun (talk) 21:48, 14 February 2024 (UTC)
In that case, it seems like it would make more sense to treat them as one system with slightly different rules for equal ranks. DSC should satisfy LNHelp/LNHarm whenever voters are required to provide a strict ordering for all options (like IRV rules typically do). --Closed Limelike Curves (talk) 20:36, 19 February 2024 (UTC)
