Design Vote 7: “Dial Shade”
This thread is now closed.
Please use the dial shade design thread to discuss the results of this vote. Thank you.
Original post text:
It’s unlikely that we’ll have an easier design element to vote on than this one!
This vote will decide whether the Project THOR watch will have a light, or a dark coloured dial, which means there will only be two options for you to choose from.
If you haven’t done so already, please read Design Thread 7 for all the pertinent details concerning this vote.
Here are the options that will be presented in the vote form:
1. Dark shade
2. Light shade
Pretty simple stuff, n’est-ce pas?
Finally, here’s our tedious reminder that this thread is NOT for the continued discussion of the dial shade (as if anyone wanted to discuss it further anyway). Please use the appropriate Design Thread for such posts. This thread is strictly for comments concerning the vote itself – or for anyone who is experiencing problems with the voting process to let us know.
Online vote forms will be sent out to everyone over the next 24 hours (by 16 May). CzechMate has been impressed that everyone has been entering their UI numbers correctly, but we still have the odd person who is applying the same rank number to more than one option. Come on guys – let’s go for a perfect vote this time around!
This vote will run for SEVEN days (from 15 – 22 May), or less if all eligible votes are received before the end of the voting period (wouldn’t that be nice?). The vote results will be tabulated and posted in this thread upon its completion and in the project summary post of the FAQ thread.
IMPORTANT! This vote is mandatory and WILL count against your participation count in the project.
The Usual Fine Print Concerning Our Voting Process (please read – at least once):
Over the next 24 hours a vote form will be sent to the email address you used to register for the project. Please look for this email, fill out the form completely – and accurately – and then submit it. You will need to use the Unique Identifier (UI) number that was sent to you in a WUS PM by CzechMate when you first registered for the project. Please contact CzechMate if you do not receive your vote form by 16 May at 21:00 GMT (and after you've checked your spam/junk folders).
An option that receives the majority of the votes (>51%) will be considered the winner.
All voting for Project THOR will use the STV system, which allows a person to rank all options in order of their preference. In other words, if your first choice doesn't get enough votes to win, your vote will automatically roll over to your second choice, and if necessary (and applicable), your third choice and so on. This is an excellent system, one that we used to great success for our last Steinhart project watch. We suggest that you search Wikipedia for “single transferable vote” if you would like more detailed information on how the STV works.
Once the vote has concluded, and the results have been posted, those who are unsatisfied by its outcome have two options: They can either notify us that they wish to leave the project, or they can accept the result and continue on. There will no option to debate a vote result or to repeat it. If you decide to leave the project we would appreciate that you immediately notify us so that your position on the registration list can be given to the next person on the waiting list.
