We didn't manage. But does this mean that we failed. Not quite: this was only a step towards future success. As my arm tattoo says: "Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better"
joking: i dislike that quote
@entreprecariat I mean, the correct answer to this is to get 80 % of the votes to the 20 % option, right?
@Stoori no! 80% to the 80% and 20% to the 20%
@entreprecariat That's not pareto distribution! :P
@Stoori eheh you're right! I should have called it anti-pareto edition… well let's stick with 80 80 and 20 20
@entreprecariat every one needs to vote for 80% all the votes are for 20%
@entreprecariat as of 20.05.2019 we need more 60% answeres :D
@entreprecariat It has memes, best poll ever.
Only 8% to 80%
.:*ﾟ:*:✼✿Please vote 80✿✼:*ﾟ:.｡
@entreprecariat federation makes this hard; on my instance it shows 9 votes but on your instance at the toot URL https://post.lurk.org/@entreprecariat/102124011833756250 it says 83 votes; it's impossible to form a strategy that isn't "roll 1d5" or "everyone post what you voted"
@ontploffing i guess that's part of the challenge. "everyone post what you voted" sounds like good strategy to me :)
@entreprecariat Oh no! I voted wrong!
@dredmorbius there is only one remedy: do propaganda for proper votes
@entreprecariat can someone fluent in statistics calculate how many single votes for 80 we need based on 101 votes so far?
@luka, here's an overview
72% to 80%
28% to 20%
73 votes to 80%
29 votes to 20%
If I get it correctly, we currently need a minimum of 145 votes in total. 116 must go to 80%, so we need 43 more!
@entreprecariat with 112 votes and 29% of them gone to 20 am I correct that we need 18-19 votes for 80 to achieve 80%?
@entreprecariat I feel my calculation is wrong. Is it?
@luka yes, I guess it is wrong, because in that case the 20% of 140 would be 26, which was already surpassed :(
@luka this poll thing is kinda good to refresh a bit of math!
@entreprecariat well get there
i have no idea why this poll's not workin
@entreprecariat why is this moving in the wrong direction despite more votes?
@luka don't know :(
@luka but now 72%
I voted for 20%
I'm adept of long trail.
Sorry, long tail
@Egide long fail :(
