A Vote Count allows players to see how the day's actions are progressing toward an Elimination (or possibly No Elimination). Different Game Moderators post this summary at different intervals, but a general rule of thumb is that it should be posted if the count has changed more than once in the last 24 hours, and/or at the top of every page (every 25 posts), if possible.
In general, a vote count can follow this basic pattern:
Vote Count, Day X ---------------------- Player8 - 5 (Player2, Player3, Player4, Player5, Player6) Player5 - 2 (Player1, Player7) Player7 - 1 (Player10) No Elimination - 1 (Player11) Not voting (2): Player8, Player9. With 11 alive, it will take 6 to eliminate.
