erm...

either the poll is borked or i've failed my math.

here's the stats showing at the time of my post:

Einstein (4 votes) 50%
SETI (4 votes) 50%
Rossetta (2 votes) 25%

well... last time i attended elementary math, I was told that 4 out of 10 was 40% and 2 out of 10 was 20%.

yes I noticed that. It was a multi vote to give a full choice, I will set up a run-off pole for einstein and seti.

[email protected] does not have a MacOS client. SIMAP has one in development, but it's not available today. SZTAKI has a Mac client, and there is some English documentation here.

Considering how long it has left to run, I wouldn't plan on a runoff just yet. It may not be needed, or may be needed for different projects than the early leaders.

Knightrider, I fixed several of the project titles. Looks like some admin fixed the time limit already. Feel free to send a PM to me or Scott on things like that, we can fix polls, thread titles, and a few other things. Can't fix elections though.

Looks like the poll percentages are calculated as though only one vote were allowed per choice. In other words, if everyone chose two projects, the percentages would add up to 200%. They will be accurate for ranking purposes.

Will do - and thanks for the edits -I would have done them myself if I could have. Only allowing 4 mins to set up the poll caught me unawares, so it was done at a rush.

Fair point and we should be more inclusive of non - BOINC projects, but BOINC projects seem to be the focus at the moment.
