Before the theme is revealed, we are going to have to vote on it.


  1. Copy the option list to your reply.
  2. Delete the options which you don't want at all
  3. Order the remaining options so that most preferred themes are on top and least preferred on the bottom.
  4. Post reply.

We will vote using the Instant Runoff Voting method. Nothing too complicated for voters. Just arrange the options numerically with the most preferred option as number one. Once the voting is closed, I will process the votes. This voting system will ensure that you will not be able to and don't have to vote tactically to influence the result - the result will match the preferences of voters as closely as possible and everyone's vote matters all the way to the end.

The votes are public and tied to the itch account you are posting with, there is no way around that considering the past behavior on anonymous polling sites. The options that we are voting over are work-safe and not in any way embarrassing, so there is nothing to worry about your votes being public. Most importantly, the votes are public since I will have to process the votes manually - votes being public means that anyone will be able to double-check my vote counting.

Tie Resolution

Oh, also - tie resolution during the counting rounds. In case of a tie, the option whose supporters have more released games on their itch pages summed up will win the tie. (We just need something arbitrary to break ties - and this is pretty fair in my opinion)

Go ahead and post votes.

IRV is not immune to tactical voting


True. But still, regular first past the vote doesn't come in close with its tactical voting. Also, the quantity of votes makes it a bit of an hassle. And jam options cannot be categorized into Left-Centre-Right aswell. So, lets just hope that malicious anons don't have several days of dedication of crunch the numbers.

Doesn't seem like any of these options are in danger of being voted on anyway

        Round 1

        • Clone a game and do it better(Cento®)
        • Riots (thepaleman)
        • Musical Rythm (EpitaphGamer)
        • New World Order (Linnu)

        As per tie resolution rules we will have to resolve the tie according to amount of games made by the voters. Games made: Cento®(26), Linnu(3), thepaleman(0), EpitaphGamer(0). thepaleman and EpitaphGamer's next preferred choices will now be used.

        Round 2

        • New World Order (Linnu, EpitaphGamer)
        • Clone a game and do it better(Cento®, thepaleman)

        Equal votes for both themes. Resolving with the tie resolution, "Clone a game and do it better" is victorious.

        Result: "Clone a game and do it better"
