> Hi there!
> It's been quiet for a while around the 'new logo' competition, but here
> is how it is going to work:
> The list with options can be found here (for now):
> http://community.haskell.org/~eelco/poll.html Notice that some (very)
> similar logos are grouped as one option (thanks to Ian Lynagh) All
> submissions compete, so that still makes more than a 100 options!
> The voting system we'll use is the Condorcet Internet Voting System
> (http://www.cs.cornell.edu/andru/civs.html). The poll won't be public,
> but every subscriber to Haskell-Cafe will get a (private) voting ballot
> by email. The poll will (probably) start March 16 and run for about a
> week (don't worry, there will be a strict deadline communicated). When
> the poll is over, the results will be viewable by everybody.
> The CIVS allows easy grouping and ordering, so the task of ordering 100
> options should be doable within 5-10 minutes. If you're in a hurry you
> can do it a lot faster, just pick your favorite and put it first. If you
> want to learn more about condorcet voting, the CIVS site and Wikipedia
> are your friends.
> I'll supervise the poll and make sure it's started, stopped and all
> Haskell-Cafe subscribers get a ballot (Simon Marlow provided the email
> addresses). Since I'm going on a (probably internet deprived) holiday
> for a week _and_ to make sure I haven't overlooked anything, I'm
> announcing it now but won't start the poll till March 16. Of course,
> I'd love to hear about anything that I missed and/or that might
> influence the voting process in a significant way. (There are probably
> some people subscribed with multiple addresses, but I'll be using the
> subscriber list from yesterday, so signing up now with lots of addresses
> won't get you more ballots ;)
Excellent work Eelco, and thanks for pushing this forward!
