Page HowTo
This help page was moved to Git: Previous content: In Kudocracy, *Personas* (visitors) vote on *propositions* to express an "agree", "disagree", "protest" (a strong disagreement) or "blank" orientation. A persona is a visitor with a twitter name. At this point there is no control of who the personas actually are. In addition to voting, visitors can create new propositions and attach *tags* to classify propositions. To limit abuses, visitors can vote "protest". If there exists more "protest" votes than any other orientation, the involved tag or proposition is filtered out. Note: use the "#abuse" tag to search for such cases. Visitors can vote directly or indirectly when they delegate to *agents*. The *delegation* is not global, it is for future propositions about topics defined using tags. For exemple: " @peter #environment #fiscal " would typically delegate to Peter regarding propositions about the fiscal aspect of environmental policies (assuming such propositions are tagged accordingly). It is possible to override an indirect vote with a direct vote, at any time. It is also possible to change mind at any time on any previous vote. When a visitor casts a vote, the vote is usually "public" and is valid for a certain duration only. When that duration is reached, the vote expires and disappear. "secret" votes are possible too, the orientation is kept secret. "private" votes are even more secret, who voted is kept secret too. However, please don't trust computer systems regarding strong privacy, Kudocracy included. When organising a "ballot", there usually is a limit date and a list of who can vote. This list is the "electorate". For ballots, only public votes matter, this helps to avoid fraud. @jhr - @jhr - @kudocracy -
