There's less than 2 days remaining already, but yes.

>We'll be taking a week off, cheers.
So that means we'll have another week to vote for the current stuff, right?

Eisigerhauch | Mar 10, 1:54 PM
Okay, you are welcome.

Lindle | Mar 10, 9:52 AM
Yeah I'm gonna leave it in thanks

Eisigerhauch | Mar 10, 8:35 AM
It has 0% support, 0% opposition and not quite 2% engagement. Technically 0 times 0 is 0, and 0 times divided by 0 is a mathematical error. But you are correct there has been 100% abstention from voting.

I would like to know how it complies with primary club goals "1. To have members nominate an anime or manga series that they believe is of particularly high quality and that deserve to be added to our 'Club Related' list." There seems to be no such member involved anymore, especially since recently you forwarded the rules concerning joke or troll nominations.

I'm not forwarding that there is any illegitimacy from past votes, but I do also not see how any member believes that the series in question is of high quality and therefore deserve to be added to our list, and would on this basis advise to exclude it from the blue n rescue mission until there has been any effort for the title in the form of new nominations.

To keep a title like that in a project that barely meets participation at full engagement seems counterproductive to our course.

Lightfellow | Mar 10, 8:06 AM
We'll be taking a week off, cheers.

Lindle | Mar 10, 7:08 AM
@Eisigerhauch - 0/0 isn't technically possible to present as a percentage, as 0% and 100% are equally valid percentage representations. As such we went with Blue, because it can't get much less indecisive than that.

A better question would be why not?

Lindle | Mar 10, 7:06 AM
hey, we got JoJo 7 in way back when
