Borda Count

How much do you trust popular websites to maintain your data and online privacy? In this week's poll you can rank them using the Borda Count voting method.

Instructions:
  1. In the box next to each item, put your choice of rank. The site you trust the most earns a "1", the site you trust just a bit less gets a "2", a site you trust even less gets a "3", etc. So "1" is the site you find most trustworthy.
  2. You don't have to rank all 8; you can just rank the ones you have an opinion about. But since there are only 8 choices, you can't input a number higher than that (ie, it's impossible to rank something 9th place in a contest with only 8 places).
  3. Simply be careful not to duplicate numbers!
    Have fun!

Ugh, I didn't find that out until deliberating and making all my selections.

:(

Also, the 1 is most trusted, 8 is least trusted (but yield 8 and 1 point respectively) methodology could be made more clear.

It's this kind of confusion that may have led to inaccurate voting results on another site recently.
