Trust a math guy to find that. lol.
UBK: Did you maybe instead want to weight as (1/2) * (N1) meaning add 1 , 1/2, 1/4 , 1/8 ... which does in fact approach 2 as the number of terms goes to infinity?
That would be ridiculously top heavy with 500 tenth place votes not even equalling a single first place vote.
Yes  thats what I meant, although I am sure there is a formula that would make it less top heavy, whilst making it a convergent series. This is far more your realm of expertise than mine. I am confident that your unflappableness could comfortably create a formula that achieves the net result of distributing a fixed number of points to a complete ballot, while simultaneously allowing for an almost unlimited number of people on the ballot.
