    Note the current scores in the mod naming poll.
    Do the math, and I see 128 votes, so using the example of Ambassador below, 29 votes should be 22.6%.

    Here is what I believe is going on: I set up this poll to allow people to vote for multiple choices, so if 97 poeple voted thus far, then it is correct that 29.9% of the voters, rather than 20.9% of the votes cast, went for Ambassador.

    i would have never caught that distinction. Thanks, we may have to make up a new name for you. Really appreciate all these lessons we're learning from our members. Cheers.
