As we are already using numbered lists for RS:UOTM I really don't see the point of having a supporters count at the top. As if anyone seriously would oppose a nomination.

Why? - Why not just make it easier to tell how many people commented? ʞooɔ 00:16, January 2, 2011 (UTC)

Just look at the bottom of the supporters list and you have the same. It is just additional unneeded work. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 00:29, January 2, 2011 (UTC)
The number at the bottom isn't always right because people who can't vote but do get striked out. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 00:46, January 2, 2011 (UTC)

Comment - Why not just make a poll? It seems like a better idea. Recent uploads SpineTalkGuest book 00:26, January 2, 2011 (UTC)

Per RS:NOT#DEMO and RS:C. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 00:29, January 2, 2011 (UTC)
Hey joey, UOTM uses democracy and not consensus. But we can't use a poll because there are minimum requirements for voters. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 00:46, January 2, 2011 (UTC)
Both of those are irrelevant to the UOTM system, which is an exception to both. The reason we don't use a poll is because the poll would be broken if we added a new user to it (and new users are added often mid-month), polls are easily manipulated, and people often want to vote for more than one candidate, which cannot be done via polls.

Ye, okay, but they both say something about "we don't use polls" and that was what i was talking about. Sorry i was unclear. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 00:56, January 2, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - It helps when votes are crossed out because of ineligible voters. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 00:46, January 2, 2011 (UTC)

Hmmm.... Ye, okay.
