When TwitchPlaysPokemon is in Democracy mode, some players are typing commands followed by numbers.

For example, start9. It appears that commands followed by numbers are tallied separately in the votes. What is the significance of the number? Would start9 result in the command start if it gets a winning number of votes?

start9 means you're voting for the command start to be used 9 times. It's a quicker version of voting for start by its own 9 different times.
