I was thinking of starting the Commonplace Book compo soon... seems like a good fit for Halloween. Evil

Would it make sense to just do that and then apply the poll to the next NEXT compo?

Yes, sir!  Gentleman

Wow, Gainsworthy, thank you for that.

So anyway, considering that this is such a monstrous list, will we be eliminating the ideas with the least votes? Say, 0 or 1? Delisting them forever? And ever?

Well, I agree with agj -  removing the low votes once this is done seems like a good idea. Melly/Benz suggested a stage two of this, which may be a good idea.

I've now squished together all the duplicates and ranked them, but it's for 40 votes.

Melly, Benzido, and anyone else who may want a copy (future reference and such), go ahead and PM me for the .xls file. It's much neater.


ALSO: Looks like our TIGS upload folder is full. Inconvenient. Can it be looked into?

I've come to the conclusion that polls are not good enough to decide on what the competition should be. We should actually discuss it. A lot of these ideas are amusing to look at, but if you try to think of a whole competition with them, you see that they simply wouldn't do.

True, but we already had lots and lots of discussion on many of them in the old thread. Clearly discussing such a huge list of options leads us nowhere. I think some voting to establish a couple of favorites isn't such a bad idea? Those could then be discussed again...

I agree with Melly, actually. Although if we re-DISCUSS, it will turn into the old thread. I think this poll will help narrow the discussion down somewhat.

Really though, I was always up for Derek and a crack team of TIGers to make the final decision. I only compiled the results because they were there, and messy, and I figured ya'll could do with some Categorising.

Why not take all the similar comps and put them under one heading. Then have voting groups, where the best of those will go into one final vote.
