We did extensive analysis of nominating data from 2014 to 2017 to help fans planning to attend the Business Meeting at WorldCon75 answer the following questions:
- Should we endorse continued use of EPH?
- Should we ratify EPH Plus?
- Should we ratify 3SV?
- Is any of this really going to fix the slating problem in the long term?
For each year, we estimated how much impact different sized slates would have had under six different combinations of voting systems, assuming optimal strategies by the slate organizers. We found that EPH+ and 3SV are individually too weak to fully protect the Hugo Awards from future slating campaigns, but in combination they're unbeatable.
