The red team has come to a unanimous decision. We will be known as the Crimson Reds and will be located at Woodbine.

Are any other teams still having problems getting their teams to vote on Location and Team Name, even after the reshuffle?

The Indigo Team has two team members that have not voted yet.

One of them hasn't logged in to FF since Feb 28th, but, while the other one has been pretty active on FF (she joined FF in Racing Year 2011), she only has 3 posts total and, as far as I can see, hasn't posted on the Forum since Mar 6th.

The rest of us are unanimous on our choice of Location and Name but can't do anything about them until the other two have voted.

We are having some trouble with members being active regularly. We all agreed on a track, which got picked before we could claim it. I haven't been able to get everyone to re-vote for a different track..

Just a thought. Instead of unanimous decisions, in the future could a certain percentage be deemed acceptable?

Probably. The main point of unanimous decisions is to make sure everyone's involved on the team. (This is really the only decision that requires any unanimous voting, or necessarily any forum activity, per se.)

I know the teams who haven't reached a decision yet are frustrated. There's not much I can do about that, though, unless I re-shuffled the teams yet again. There's also no huge hurry, since all it does is shorten the racing challenge timeframe.

Perhaps enable Captains to make a poll in the same way that races are voted for? That way, no forum requirement. Maybe first poll have people tick top three choices. Then set up another poll to pick one. Results won't be unanimous (since no one will see how people voted until afterwards), but might get 100% participation.

That would be fine for the rewrite. I don't plan to change any CW-related code until then, though. (Unless there are bugs, obviously.)

Given that it's been almost 3 weeks since the last team got a unanimous vote, for the remaining teams:

If you have heard from all of your team members at some point (since the new teams got setup), you can go ahead with whatever majority vote you have.

I'll aim to setup the racing challenge stuff by April 1 if everyone has a team name/location. I'm moving this weekend so it may take a few days.

We have heard from all but one of our team members. Even though I have emailed and PM'd the last member, they still haven't voted yet. According to the Stable List, the last time they logged onto FF was Feb 28th, so it isn't even that they've been active in FF but not on the Forum.

Can we assume that they are inactive and use the rest of the team votes, in which case, we will be ready to make our selections now?

I guess that's fine.

Thanks Shanthi.

In that case, the Indigo Team selects Pimlico for our location and the name Indigo Ink.
