Scrap voting out of 5 and just have for and against. Also create a list of ideas with the most votes rather than the higest average score. Failing that bring back the No 10 e-Petitions web site.

Why is this idea important?

When voting on things like this, most people either vote 1, they are against, or 5, they are for it. Very few people bother to vote three stars as that means they don't care and if they don't care they won't vote anyway. What we are really interested in is the number of people that voted and the balance of for and against. The current system is collecting misleading statistics.

For example the heighest vote list is currently listing ideas with one vote of five stars and no vote of one star higher than an idea with one hundered votes of five stars and one vote of one star.
