How many votes can I get on this poll if y'all boost it?
To evaluate this poll a logarithmic distance measure might make sense, to keep distances linearly comparable:
d_i = abs(log(v_total) - log(a_i))
- log(): the base-10 logarithm
- abs(): the absolute value
- v_total: total of all votes
- a_i: the number of votes mentioned in answer i
The answer i with the smallest distance d_i is the winner.
@floppy Good point! I wasn't planning on doing anything more than eyeballing which one looks closer, but this is more fun* :D
*) for certain definitions of fun.
@zatnosk just that I won't… 😜
Hahaha, on a logarithmic scale, there is no debate about the winner now. 😄
