@Keith I agree that this forum should steer clear of advocating for anything that feels partisan, and this kind of does to me.

RE: SACRW2: Score And Choose Random Winner from 2 complementing methods
@Jack-Waugh It sounds like you simply described a random voting system with the 32 bit hex thing. Not sure what you're after here. I don't think your vote can be sincere when the voter doesn't know how to do anything other than put a random number down.
Regardless, I'm saying no one is going to accept a voting method with randomness in it as you describe, even with your more reasonable options. It is a non-starter.
That said, I think several "reasonable" methods are hard to say what a sincere vote is, Approval being the most obvious one. But a ranked method it is pretty straightforward to determine what a sincere vote is.
@Marylander Codepens aren't running arbitrary JS on the actual site, they are running it in an iframe that is embedded into the site and can't communicate with the JS runtime within the site.
If they allowed people to, for instance, steal your login credentials (e.g.. read your document.cookie and then post it to a random URL), Codepen would have never even considered making them run embedded in forums. I can assure you they carefully considered the security implications and architected it in a way that prevents such things..
