Joop, your polling booth has always been a pain because of the need to
remember an ID/password.
This can be helped by making a "reminder" message w. login and PW
obligatory for every Poll.
Could you just not find a way to have the passwords in the URL, a maiol
sent to the voters and the mail repeated several times so we could only
click on the link, either to vote or to know the status of the vote.
That shouldn't be too difficult to do.
But we would have to be careful not to leave openings for technical abuse.
Also that all the running votes are displayed in the same page, to keep it
I also suggest that you establish a "vote@large" organization under any
cheap be serious law where at large voters could elect four other polling
officers sharing your access to the boot data and certifying the votes.
Yes. What I hoped was that the IDNO would prove the value of such an
actually functioning integrated political representation system in a
virtual meeting environment. The hope was that participating in the IDNO
would produce actual representatives that could actually have some weight
in the Names Council and so give a purpose to the whole effort.
My feeling is that the boot failed until now because you cannot really
adapt it to practical experience and because you wanted to integrate it
into a formal structure.
The continual stonewalling by ICANN combined with the internal sabotage
made it too discouraging to continue on that road. But now the
www.idno.org website has been killed, the effort from the old site
www.democracy.org.nz can always be revived
As a stand alone formal and a neutral service it has chances to fly and
develop. Is there no way for you to make what I call for three years : to
get a programmer on it and to make it a real professional and possibly
commercial poll and voting multi-lingual system?
This is a sensible suggestion and worth listening to.
I will gladly help in this way too. Even imperfect as it is now, the
Booth can fulfill a useful role in building icannatlarge.
There is no inherent conflict of interest between a commercial voting
administrator and the principles of Democracy. Rather the contrary :-).
But you still need a unique Charter/Bylaws/Constitution for the Atlarge
Network Hub that the icannatlarge.org should evolve into.
Who do you trust to write it?
Isn't Richard right to poll the "members" on the major Structure and
Policy questions first?
