Hi, The combined voting has thrown up a few questions about how to fairly resolve the ties. You are all invited to comment, and as always, the majority decision shall be the one that is implemented. I want to have this discussion now, so there will be no disagreements during the results, or accusations that ties were broken unfairly. From what I can see, there are three possible ways to break the ties. We will use this hypothetical tie for the purposes of all 3 systems: Song A receives 10 points from the leader, and 0 from the non-leader. Song B receives 0 points from the leader, and 10 from the non-leader. Song C receives 5 points from the leader, and 5 from the non-leader. System A This is the simplest system. The leader's votes take priority across the board. The original idea behind the leadership contest was to use that only when ties couldn't be resolved by any other method (e.g. 12+10 vs 10+12), but it could be used to resolve all ties. It would resolve the above tie like so (in order of most points to least points): Song A, Song C, Song B, because the leader gave the most points to Song A, followed by Song C, and didn't give any to Song B. System B The song that received the highest individual point wins the tie, with the leader's vote taking priority when this cannot result in a clear winner. So, in this case, the order would be Song A, Song B, Song C, because the 10 individual points awarded to Song A and Song B beat the 5 individual points awarded by each member to Song C. Song A beats Song B because of the leader's influence. System C Resolve ties firstly by the number of people voting for a song. Much like Eurovision, the first resolution method would be to resolve it by the number of people in the team that voted for the song. It means that a song that was voted for by both members - even if they both gave it low/medium points only - would beat a song that one person voted very highly and the other voted very low. Then where it cannot be resolved any further, the leader's votes take priority. In this case, it would be Song C, followed by Song A due to the leader's influence, and then Song B. In other words, a song receiving 5 points from both teams would trump a song that received 10 points from one member only. I have no opinion about which system is fairer. What I do know is that not everybody will agree, and some will favour one system over the other. No system is perfect. They all have flaws in some ways. But the aim is to identify which system most people like, and then go ahead with that, hoping everyone else will accept the decision and keep in the spirit of the contest by not causing arguments because of the type of tiebreaker we opted to use. Please vote above and explain your rationale below. You may vote for more than one system, if you wish.
