OK, let's try to make this happen (again).

Enter THE POLL'S DILEMMA 2: Pareto Edition!

You can:

- vote
- boost
- reply with strategy and overview of the situation
- wait 7 days to see the results

+++ 4 days left +++
things aren't looking bright... boost to help!

+++ 3 days to go +++
situation is slightly better. keep hoping

only 8% needed (in 80%). Fediverse, if you can hear me, do something!

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"

are these mutually exclusive options? (voting, boosting, replying, waiting)

@entreprecariat I mean, the correct answer to this is to get 80 % of the votes to the 20 % option, right?

@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 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 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

101 votes

72% to 80%
28% to 20%

which means:

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%?

@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 why is this moving in the wrong direction despite more votes?

I voted for 20%
I'm adept of long trail.
