          May I suggest that polls reveal names of the voters?

          There are cliques here, and if a victor is based upon mates, rather than intellect, we should know.

            The title of this thread makes it look like a British Conservative Party announcement

              Anonymous voting tends to encourage more people to vote. I for example rarely ever vote in political polls that are not anonymous.

                  This is not a political poll?

                  None of the previous nominees were political either, but simply concerned with history.

                  In addition, revealing voter names will illuminate those who voted for themselves .

                      Political Poll was just an example of why I won't vote. Others may have their own reasons.

                      Besides for the Campaign Polls that award ribbons to the voters, private polls always generate more votes.

                      Think about it, two members have been telling each other they are best friends on ACG, that alone would seriously prevent him from voting for someone else in fear of pissing off a "friend", and it also puts immense pressure to vote for the friend. Don't forget the revenge votes to send a clear message because of the name stamp. I would reason that a public poll would be more manipulated by "relationships" than not.

                        Pretty much so, if the members cannot be even bothered to nominate enough post to even do a poll.

                              Perhaps a best post for end of 2016?

                              I could write my current opinion of Zama if enough people are interested?
