Still need one more f-ing vote. Seriously though, if I have to beg to reach quorum I'm just going to stop the ranking. If we have to few voters than one vote carries way too much weight. That is getting 90% of the vote from an early vote won't be the same as getting 90% of the vote in a later vote. I can't accept less than 14 votes. It's been like 5 days or more for this poll.
