Hi everybody,

We have three functions competing for two shifted locations top right of the WP 31S. Those functions are %, Δ%, and x! - the easiest way to decide the race is calling you to the polling stations. So please ... two (2) votes per person. The poll runs for 120h starting NOW.

x! and Δ%

Maybe I'm missing some important use case here, but my guess is that most users of scientific calculators have a very good understanding of fractions and percentages and consequently have little need for a shortcut like a % operator. I personally always found it more burdensome to remember the precise behavior of % than to do any calculation without it.

Also x! really shouldn't be hidden in a menu in my opinion.
I voted for % and x!.

Calculating percentages is a so common that I think it deserves a place on the keyboard. Yes it's simple, but it's so common that I think it's worth putting on the keyboard.

It's harder for me to justify x!. Just personal preference I suppose.

The only possible reason for using % and Δ% can be saving keystrokes. Δ% probably saves more than %, so I voted for that and x!

X! and Δ%, I can come up with % fairly easily.
To whom it may concern: Your vote will only be counted when (and if) you vote Any post you write in this matter will not be counted.

No, but it might influence others ;-)
The result is self-explanatory. You'll see a corresponding WP 31S soon - incl. working UNDO

More people voted against x! than for it.
