2nd vote November 3rd, 2015
this is the formal declaration of results on the 2nd vote of the TSC
team. It contains the official number of voting ballots counted, their
chosen options, and it states the outcome of the vote.
- - 2015-10-11: Vote announcement
- - 2015-10-25: Call for Votes
- - 2015-11-03: Declaration of results
The vote was proposed by me, Quintus <quintus(a)quintilianus.eu>.
There was a discussion spawned in the issue tracker (ticket #441)
about whether or not to rename the special mode that makes Alex
invincible from “Funky God Mode” to something different. The main
argument was that the term might be perceived as an unnecessary and
maybe even blasphemic use of the name of God for highly religious
Christians. There has been a good number of pros and cons being
exchanged on the tracker, which I advise everyone to carefully read
before making a decision.
As it appears to be impossible to find a compromise (one can’t really
change the name only partly) and there are people arguing for both
options, I determined a vote was necessary to clear the matter up.
To ease things, this vote not only decides about whether to rename
current God Mode, but also about what to rename it to exactly to prevent
nececcisity of another voting procedure. By voting for option 1 below,
you indicate you want to keep the current naming, voting for any other
option is a vote against the current naming and in favour of another
name (the one you vote for).
- From 9 people allowed to vote (8 mentioned in the announcement message
plus Bugsbane who I assure you is in the team but still has not
publicised his membership, but has pointed that out on the tracker) 7
did exercise their right to vote, which gives a participation of
These are the definitive results:
| # | Option name | Votes | Percent |
| 1 | Funky God Mode (i.e. keep the current naming) | 2 | ~28.57 % |
| 2 | Funky god mode (“God” not capitalised) | 0 | 0.00 % |
| 3 | God Mode | 0 | 0.00 % |
| 4 | Dog Mode | 0 | 0.00 % |
| 5 | Invincible Mode | 1 | ~14.29 % |
| 6 | Omega Mode | 4 | ~57.14 % |
| 7 | Underdog Mode | 0 | 0.00 % |
| - | Total | 7 | 100.00 % |
Effect of the Vote
Option #6 has been ACCEPTED by the majority of the team. It is a binding
decision the team follows from now on, all circumstances being equal.
With regard to the vote subject this means that the current “Funky God
Mode” is going to be renamed to “Omega Mode”.
Right to Complain
Every team member has the right to file a complaint against this formal
declaration. The complaint must be filed within 14 days from now on
(timestamp of this email) with either the project lead or with the
project assistant lead. The project lead and assistant lead must file
the complaint with one another; if both are involved, a volunteer must
be seeked for.
The complaint has to contain an explanation as to why the voting rules
have been violated. The person the complaint was filed with will then
check the procedure against the requirements of the voting rules
document, and if he finds a violation, he can declare the vote failed,
which allows repetition of the vote in question.
I am going to open an issue on the tracker for keeping track of setting
this vote’s results into effect.
TSC project lead.
