The one thing that keeps bugging me is the notion of players feeling singled-out or ignored. I wouldn't want to encourage that kind of behavior. I have a system in which a lot of voting takes place, but I don't like the idea that people know who voted what. I like it to be secret so that no feelings can get hurt, and people will vote how they really feel. This is an idea that deserves exploration. Any player empowerment tactic is worth serious thought, in my opinion.
