Re: Voting at Lonestarcon

I think you are seeing an agenda where there isn't one because other people who perhaps did have such an agenda said something similar to what was said here. I am not convinced.

There is certainly a very good reason to make such a remark -- if your assumption is that the reader may not be so familiar with IRV. You understand IRV, but if one does not, it is most certainly not "at best pointless commentary". It is instead a cogent example.

I personally would rather have seen a Helsinki win for 2015, and I voted accordingly, but I don't think it failed to win due to a flaw in the process. It didn't win because of how people voted.

Chris is using this example to explain how votes matter - including all ranks, not just the first place one.

Re: Voting at Lonestarcon

(In Truth I would have preferred that Helsinki not have bid for 2015 at all, since it was really too close in time to Loncon 3. I hope their 2017 bid has more of a chance.)
