Trangaming Voting Changes

January 12th, 2002 by Alkini

The Trangaming site has been updated with some information regarding (once again) how polls from previous months will be handled. Since TG will not likely complete some of the top vote-receiving tasks in any given month, there has been some debate as to what should be included in the following month’s poll. Some of the key decisions are as follows:

  • all new polls will be added to the voting area at the same time, in the middle of the month
  • top-ranked polls from the previous month will be carried into the new month
  • if a poll is not carried over into the following month, it can still be accepted as a ‘new’ poll if certain procedures are followed
  • a development status page will soon be added where subscribers will be able to track the progress of the TG team on implementing the features that were voted for
  • a “negative voting option” will be voted on in a separate poll this month to determine, presumably, if subscribers will be able to vote on projects that they do not want TG to spend time on

Lastly, the TG site update mentions that they will be releasing data regarding the quantity of subscribers that they have. This information will be released in approximately one month.
