Welcome, User:Culi. I saw some messages from a new subscriber to EM-list named "Culi" on the election methods list ("Coombs method and typical RCV hybrid" on January 22, for example), and I'm guessing you might be the same person. I see from your first contribution that you made a helpful fix to a link, and you linked to a site that I don't think we'd linked to before, but Jobst Heitzig appears to be involved (and we may want to create a Vodle page on electowiki). The "Culi" coincidence seems like a big enough coincidence not to call out. Well, regardless of whether you're the same person as EM-list Culi, welcome to electowiki. I'll tell you what I tell many new editors that I notice: please read "User:RobLa/Welcome". I hope you continue to contribute to electowiki!-- RobLa (talk) 05:21, 29 January 2022 (UTC)

Hey Rob! Not sure if you get notifications for my talk page, but it is indeed the same culi. Is this a different Rob than the Rob Latchford on the mailing list? Thanks for the link, I'll make sure to check it out --Culi (talk) 06:17, 29 January 2022 (UTC)
Cool. I'm Rob Lanphier (not Latchford). I started the EM-list back in 1996. I don't believe we have a "Rob Latchford", though we also have a person named "Rob LeGrand" that used to be a frequent poster (e.g. his February 2002 posts). He still maintains a voting calculator inspired by my voting calulator: -- RobLa (talk) 06:38, 29 January 2022 (UTC)
Ah, my mistake. Thanks for the welcome. And wow! Not sure if you saw my messages in the mailing list, but I'm working on something similar here! Although mine is mostly a toy. The central idea with it is that you can start with a scored ballot and from that generate all sorts of other ballots (e.g. ranked for IRV, approval for approval method, etc). So far I've implemented ~18 different methods including IRV, STAR, Approval, Copeland, Bucklin, and more. It seems like your calendar is down right now, but I managed to find an archive. Looks pretty useful. Perhaps some day I'll turn my site into an actual tool as well --Culi (talk) 07:38, 29 January 2022 (UTC)
PS just realized Rob Latchford is from a different mailing list I'm in. Apologies for the mix up haha --Culi (talk) 23:35, 31 January 2022 (UTC)
