Loomio seems to have problems adding up

RF Robert Frittmann Public Seen by 36

Can someone explain to me why, in the example below, the numbers don't add up? It shows that one person out of 533 has voted, but that vote was none of the 4 available options (Yes, No, Abstain, Block). What gives?

Loomio may be broken for large number of members, but for a group of 9, the numbers always added up.

Your vote doesn't matter. Please vote for the group with the lowest number.

My dummy proposal has all the numbers match up, but the number of people in the meta group is much smaller.

It must be a bug. Perhaps a bug from the large number of users in the group.

Looking at that one, it shows 1 stated vote (at this point in time) by the numbers under the graph, but no votes recorded in the proposal, or along the legend.

Loomio is bugged. Electronic voting is unreliable without a paper receipt or open voting and an interested electorate to catch such minor things

Thanks for testing that, @marcwhinery. I can only concur with you that Loomio is bugged. As mentioned elsewhere, this is only beta software at present.

BTW, the proposal you linked to is the same one I shared the screenshot of. Well spotted!

its kims vote!

maby "stated their position" means contributed to the discussion, the proposer has contributed to the discussion so thats one and is shown even tho noone has voted @marcwhinery as well as creating the discussion also voted in it so the numbers then add up

nope its not that ...... ah but by proposing the decision you have interacted with it so you are counted . you needed someone who is not the proposer to test this. I have a proposal "local foods etc" in which I have not voted. I will wait and see what happens there. if this is correct the participaters should remain at voters+1 until I vote this is also the situation in "should loomio make all the decisions for us" (paraphrased!) where the proposer @reidalexanderwicks has not voted.
