Until someone rewrites memberbot or designs a new voting system, the 
ordering must be applied before the voting starts. Given that 
constraint, I'm trying to find something fairer than alphabetical order. 
Yielding priority to those who are lesser known (roughly measured by 
time in the community) seems like the best we can do at the moment.
