Polls: 2 August 2009

Posted by rajiv on 2 August 2009

The poll feature on WordPress was first used to vote for a man of the match by Tom in his report on the game on 20 October 2008.

A player of the session/game has since become a regular feature of each report or summary.

Polls have also been used to canvass views on various matters, or entirely for fun.  A list of concluded polls between 1 February 2009 and 24 April 2009 can be found here.

At the start of last month, I said that the votes from the player polls  for each month would be used to compute a player of the month after the end of each month. The qualify, a participant needs to have played at least 3 sessions in the month, and garnered at least 1 vote.

The formula is (number of votes)/(number of games +1).   In the same way the table is now entirely for fun, so is the Player of the Month.

Rajseran is the first Player of the Month, for July 2009, finishing narrowly ahead of Lukas.   Dom and Poh Keng are joint third.  Rizal is fifth.  The full listing is below.

Pos Participants Votes Games Played Adjusted Average
1 Rajseran 11 7 1.38
2 Lukas 8 5 1.33

      It was very close though. The “+1” in the divisor made the difference. Without it, Lukas would have been player of the month with 1.60 points to Rajseran’s 1.58. The “+1” gives a slight edge to those who play more often.

      You didn’t do too badly yourself, Yaseen.

    The votes taken into account for the player of the month are not the same as those taken into account for the player table – for the player of the month, it is just that month alone, for the player table, it is the last 8 weeks.
