Editing minguo poll options: community moderation?

It just happened that a member wanted to edit a poll option he had just added to a poll (due to a spelling mistake). I informed him that only myself, as web site administrator, could do so. However, I do plan to eventually allow any regular member to edit poll options, as long as the proper moderation tools and community supervision tools are in place.

So, this is a planned feature, although I don't know when I'll have time to implement it.

You can use this thread to discuss how you envision the workflow for adding, moderating and editing minguo poll options.

Currently:

Political parties are less about ideology and more about getting individual elected.

Check this article, especially the section about the history of presidential elections in the USA:
http://masquilier.org/republic/election/plurality-duality.php
From 1789 to 1832, political parties were only a convenience to assemble together people with the same ideology. However, candidates only represented themselves in elections and having several candidates from the same party was the norm.

idleness in Dadaab

the youth in Dadaab are unemployed and do not have freedom of movement, therefore they say we are enclosed in an open prison

According to the Kenya laws on refugees [No refugee can leave the camp with out getting travel authorization from the DRA, the department of refugee affairs]. in order to get travel authorization one must go through a vetting process where they should explain to the authorities the reason for
their movement request

Setting up a new poll about Canadian politics

I am having a conversation with @poramics about election methods and Canadian politics:
https://twitter.com/poramics/status/517553779021856768

Since he's already a member of this site, I thought it'd nice if we could set up a nice poll about Canadian politics, in order to demonstrate better election method alternatives.

Poramics: I don't know much about Canadian politics. Can you help me set up this poll?
As examples, see some of the USA polls listed here http://minguo.info/election_methods

According to many parents here in this complex we have talked to education for their children is one of the top priorities since they are living outside
their home country, the only thing which they can take with them in the event of return is the education of their off spring which will help re build their
life in Somalia.

Guess all of you will concur with me on this;

One-day the world was a very peaceful just like saveheaven and it is man who made it this way of today, crisis after crisis and after crisis and so on.
I strongly believe with man, that is you and i can still make a big difference like Nelson Mandela.
I will remain just not blaming others but fix the bolt and nut to make some change and my hope is that you can as well make bigger difference.

Positivity!

What goes up comes down;

Never ever give up your faith.
Know that adversities,obstacles and failures are stepping stones to success.Stay positive.
Always have unshakable faith in your inner infinite power to decide and choose your goal, to discriminate between good and evil,and determination to achieve.
Dare to dream big.
The only requirement is to be patient,persistent and not to allow negativities like disappointment,despair to distract your mind.
