Hm. Simply voting an essay up or down is not sensitive to minority perspectives or strength of feeling.

Something more finely grained than raw power of the majority is needed.

Allison Fine

Hi, Stephen, thanks for your comment. We appreciate your concern about hearing minority voices in our essay effort. The up and down voting will be just one way that we will be assessing the essays. People who feel strongly about an essay are also welcome to email us or comment on the site. And we will be reading and ranking all of the essays ourselves. We welcome any suggestions you have for the next time we do something like this.
