This page explains standardised vote calculation, the mathematics and logic used, and its possible applications.


This method is highly experimental, and this page and the values presented may be completely wrong or outdated at any given time.


Standardised vote calculation is a mathemetical method for calculating variations of majority consensus. The method is essentially dividing into two categories: count and WSRc. All values are rounded to the first decimal place below zero.

Values[edit]

Count[edit]

Total
Individual value

The count values measure the number of each vote type in percentage ratio to the total.

WSRc[edit]

WSRc

The weighted support ratio constant (WSRc) estimates the relative strength of consensus by counting and weighing the counted values. Practically speaking, the constant is a number that increases for discussions with a high number of votes and a high support ratio. This constant is used to compare multiple discussions to gauge the relative strength of consensus; for example, this may be used to select featured texts.

Template[edit]

Usage[edit]

{{User:Pathoschild/Sandbox2
 |support =
 |oppose  =
 |neutral =
}}

The template takes three parameters, as shown above, with numerical values.

Examples[edit]

High opposition (low participation)[edit]

Votes (7): 1 support (14.3%), 3 oppose (42.9%), 3 neutral (42.9%).
WSRc: -0 (about SVC)

No clear consensus (low participation)[edit]

Votes (18): 10 support (55.6%), 8 oppose (44.4%), 0 neutral (0%).
WSRc: 2.1 (about SVC)

Borderline (high participation)[edit]

Votes (100): 75 support (75%), 25 oppose (25%), 0 neutral (0%).
WSRc: 58 (about SVC)

High support (low participation)[edit]

Votes (11): 10 support (90.9%), 1 oppose (9.1%), 0 neutral (0%).
WSRc: 27.7 (about SVC)

High support (high participation)[edit]

Votes (110): 100 support (90.9%), 10 oppose (9.1%), 0 neutral (0%).
WSRc: 314 (about SVC)
