thanks for suggestions and ideas.
I agree with you mmp and I rarely use any voting but when it has a purpose it can add. In this case the information from the OST will be used to make nation wide priorities/plan/program for the coming years. It will also be used as input for the top leaders from the political parties, who will join the next day. We have an election coming up.

People then gathered at the posted "projects" and started to plan next steps.
