Meme contest

I would like to create a meme contest. We can use electowiki to vote. To nominate a meme:

  1. Place a bullet under "Votes November 2020" and sign it
    • For example: * [ an example meme]" in raw wikitext)
  2. Add another bullet under that, and add your vote
    • For example: ** +1 -- ~~~~"
  3. Valid votes: "+1" (approved), "0" (neutral), and "-1" (explicitly not approved). The votes will be tallied using Explicit Approval Voting at the end of each month of the survey (i.e. at the end of November 2020 for #Votes November 2020)).

Wiki syntax is kinda complicated, and some voters may not feel comfortable with it. Also, some voters may not be comfortable using a wiki to vote, since wikis are notoriously leaky with personal information (i.e. even "anonymous" editors will reveal their IP address). But let's see if we can use a wiki for voting. -- RobLa (talk) 22:53, 10 November 2020 (UTC)

  • SECOND MEME: (your meme here)
    • (your vote here)

There was one vote in November, by me. As a result, the "FIRST MEME" won. -- RobLa (talk) 10:07, 1 January 2021 (UTC)

Using electowiki for public voting

I updated the meme contest up above on this page. For what it's worth, MediaWiki has a very rich API which can be used to edit talk pages. The format I defined above is reasonably readable for humans, and wouldn't be that hard for someone motivated enough to parse. But since folks aren't voting, there's no point (yet) in writing the software. -- RobLa (talk) 10:07, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
