Does Not Illustrate (runoff crowner 8/20/13): Genre Savvy get usage counts

No, the other one.
According to the graphics, I've already voted both down...

That's just the crowner bug.

I know. I just found it funny as it was right after Willy mentioned exactly that. Does it mean someone else voted both down? I'm not familiar with how this particular bug works, but previously it was based on other associated IP addresses.

That's why most runoff crowners I've seen are a single-prop (vote up for option 1, down for option 2) so people can't vote both down evil grin

Huh? Most image runoffs aren't single prop.

A single prop should have only one option listed. If it has more than a single proposition, it's not a single prop and shouldn't be labeled as such.

I've seen Single Proposition crowners as runoff crowners, where it was "[tup] for option A" and "[tdown] for option B".

They should not be made that way. A single prop should have one option, that can be answered Yes([tup]) or No ([tdown]). I know that we banned one troper a while back for misusing Single Props (making them with multiple options, or making the only option "do <this>, and <that>, and <the other thing>" in an effort to game the system and force the outcome he wanted).

For the record, when I hooked the crowner, both options had received one down vote already; my [tup] on the 1-panel pic set that one back to 0.

It strikes me that for a question like this, where people are supposed to pick between A and B and not go (1) both, (2) neither, or (3) add an extra option, an up-or-down vote would actually work better than the one we have here.

(edit) true, we shouldn't call it a single proposition because it isn't. But if we had a kind of crowner in the interface called "runoff", then it could work like that.

Maybe this is just a sign that the appropriated Crowning Moment Of Awesome-determining mechanism we've appropriated to make wiki decisions might not necessarily be the best infrastructure for the purpose?

This kind of discussion has happened two times before. I suggest a Wiki Talk thread be made regarding the structure of runoff crowners as I see two very opposing viewpoints here.

Speaking of which...

The spread on this one is big enough that I think it's safe to call. The new pic is up, potholed, and the tag's adjusted. Caption or no?
I'd like the caption to be "... or maybe a gun with silver bullets."

No consensus; locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
