I've been playing around with LimeSurvey in the VuFind Sourceforge account. I have set up a simple survey that lists all of the potential VuFind admins and allows up to seven of them to be checked off. The survey is currently hidden, but I will enable it once all the skills survey submissions are in and the results are more easily accessible.
1.) Any objections to the "up to seven votes per voter, candidates with the top seven vote counts are the admin group" selection technique?
2.) Any suggestions for tie-breaking if that situation should arise? I toyed with the idea of using preference-ordered rankings instead of flat selections for the voting in order to reduce the chances of a tie, but that seemed like it would make things more complicated and have potential to skew the results in undesirable ways. I can add a second tie-breaker question if anybody can think of a good way to structure it, or we can just hope for the best and have a run-off if necessary.
I would like to have these issues resolved by the end of the week so that next week can be the official voting period and we can announce the admin group a week from Monday. Please be sure get your skills survey submitted (http://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?hl=en_GB&formkey=dDNPNi1KVm9kY2dxcFAyRnB3UklLUEE6MA..) if you haven't already!
