If two (or more) people force a tie between say, Answering and Closing, what happens? Do both actions occur? Does it pick the first action chosen or are they chosen at random?

Further: Are certain actions weighted over others, so a tie between say, Flagging and Answering, will Answering always win out?

  • I noticed that with resetting, if it is a tie, it'll always default to continue.

  • I am not 100% sure but I am 99% sure that in case of 2. (I actually did this with someone on arqade), it will choose the first answer.

  • @aman207 Nope. I had three categories up to four stars, and were working on my fifth, when someone decided to reset. Three times in a row we tied and continued. The fourth time it actually reset. :'(

  • The core code is out on GitHub, since I barely know javascript but what I understand it is decided by whichever last action is returned by the Console since that is the console version of the code (mentioned in comments), the UI part we used would return its value differently.

The actions was chosen randomly between the tied winners (which was the only element of randomness in the game).
