    @Vitaly, It's pronounced three-na-fish (one better than tunafish) – Graham Herrli Jan 28 '15 at 15:06
  • @3nafish Oh! I hadn't picked up on that :). – Vitaly Mijiritsky Jan 28 '15 at 19:17
  • Can someone explain me (or point me to a link) the voting system? Why are there different rounds? – stefan.s Jan 29 '15 at 12:41
  • @stefan.s: We use a single transferable vote system. The rounds occur when votes are transferred either because a candidate is eliminated or elected. Often the results are identical to a straight vote, but when there are multiple candidates and positions STV systems work better in important edge cases. – Jon Ericson Jan 29 '15 at 18:30
  • @JonEricson Thanks Jon, never heard of that. Looks a bit to complicated in the morning. I'll need some more coffee :-) – stefan.s Jan 30 '15 at 6:09

due to the community, but also because the moderators do a great job. I have the utmost respect for the first group of moderators BenBrocka, JonW and Rahul - thank you so much guys!
