Slight edit; Yes, until they actually have to vote.

Yes, up until finale starts. Then most mods tend to make them ask questions publicly then vote without having private convos.

this is my main problem

do F3 with preferential ballots

That's actually best of both worlds. Why doesn't it happen?

a preferential ballot would ensure a more sincere group choice which is the exact opposite of reality television murder and lying simulation survivor, and that's all i've got to say on it

what about approval voting
"I used to think that votes equaled pressure, too, back when I was alive. I've learned a lot since then. You know what does equal pressure? Pressure. Pressure equals pressure. Crazy, huh?"

I don't think I'd want approval voting. A lot of people might just approve the top two choices making the winner the most generally liked candidate but few people's top choice which I also think isn't very representative. Or people would strategically approve only one even though they were truly okay with either. Plus it would be tie-tastic even moreso than F3s normally are.

I don't think F3 would have enough players to be worth a preferential ballot.

maybe the F4 FTC is needed afterall.

This is a good video that I almost entirely agree with. It talks about final 2 vs. final 3 (and what's now essentially become a game where you play to get to final 4)

I don't really care how interesting the final tribal council is, since generally it's pretty obvious who will win either way.
I think final 2 makes the game leading up to the FTC more interesting than Final 3.
