朋友問我說你為何會找到這篇文章,我回答說:「辦理世大運不就是為了宣傳台灣,讓世界認識台灣,而我想了解臺北世大運的吉祥物徵選吸引了多少外媒報導」,因此。谷哥了一下,就找到這篇英文報導,心中感覺是遺憾及可惜,被市府標榜的新科技遴選系統出了問題,也失去了對外宣傳的目的,世大運籌辦團隊要多加油了。

Universiade online poll invalidated due to voting problems



The Taipei City Government yesterday invalidated the results of an “i-voting” poll on the 2017 Universiade’s mascot, logo and slogan, following a vote failure rate of more than 70 percent.

While Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) advocates the widespread use of online polls for determining city policy, its implementation has been hampered by difficulties verifying voter identity.

Deputy Mayor Chou Li-fang (周麗芳) said that although the Formosan Black Bear would serve as the student multi-sports event’s mascot, the Universiade’s logo and slogan remained undetermined.

The Formosan Black Bear was the mascot featured in two submissions that between them won almost half of the poll’s valid votes.

Chou said that the city would “catalyze inspiration” from the slogans and logos featured in the top five submissions before sending them to professionals for “improvement.”

The poll on 10 combined submissions for the event’s mascot, slogan and logo was opened by the city’s Department of Information and Tourism in late March. The submissions were selected by the department from 394 entries from across the country.

While 42,295 people “participated” in the i-voting process, only about 11,000 successful ballots were cast, with the department attributing the high failure rate to its “rigorous” verification process.

Department Commissioner Chien Yu-yen (簡余晏) said her husband and many friends had trouble using the i-voting system, because they did not realize it required them to verify both their Facebook account and cellphone number, leading to frustration after they repeatedly verified either their Facebook or phone number, but were still unable to vote.

She added that the bear mascot needed to be “improved” because it was difficult to imagine its current “hefty” incarnation jumping or holding a racket.

Tsou Chia-ying (鄒佳穎), the department section head responsible for the poll, said that the department had required voters to verify their cellphone number as well as their Facebook account so that the department could easily notify the winners of prize drawings, which were held to encourage voting.

Chien said that although the department’s review committee had recommended completely invalidating the poll results to give professional designers more “space,” she had decided that a winning submission should still be named in accordance with the city’s earlier announcement.

City regulations governing i-voting allowed for the “improvement” of designs selected through the process, she said.

Department of Information Technology Commissioner Liu Wei-pin (劉維斌) attributed problems with the i-voting Web site to poor communication over Department of Information and Tourism needs.

He said the poll had revealed the need to establish “standard operating procedures” and communication platforms for designing voting mechanisms tailored to the needs of different departments.

The Universiade is an international biannual college student competition which is billed as second only to the Olympics by its organizer, the International University Sports Federation.
