Create A Hero Theme Battle Royale: Final Cut! Poll coming soon!

edited July 2009 in Graphic Violence
Okay, here's the deal. You guys managed to put about 70 suggestions for themes together for the new Create A Hero contests we'll be running here in Graphic Violence. I'd like to get everyone's opinions on what to run first, and I'd like to do a poll.

HOWEVER

We only have room for 20 options in our forum polls, and I don't want to start a poll off-site, especially with 70+ possibilities. So we're going to try something different.

In the next post, I'm going to put together a list of the suggestions. They're going to be numbered. What I'm going to ask you to do in this thread is vote for what you want. You're going to list your two favorites (order doesn't matter). These selections will get one point each. You will also list your least favorite option, which will lose one point (negative numbers will probably occur). You only get one vote post a day (so you can vote for two choices you like, and one you don't).

After twenty-four hours, I'm going to cut the bottom ten. I'm going to do this every day until we get to twenty options, at which point I'll put up a poll. Here's the format I want you to post in, to make it easier to read:

Upvote: #13
Upvote: #14

Downvote: #45

If you don't vote in this format, I won't count your vote. It's a really simple instruction! I'll keep the original post updated as to what the status is as of each day, and I'll try to update with a scoreboard whenever possible. This should be done within a week, and hopefully we'll be able to kick off the contests by August!

CUTS:

Day One
Day Two
Day Three

    Aren't 43-47 kind of all under the aegis of Magic-themed? Do we really need to make distinctions there?

    well, I guess, but I suppose you can narrow those down manually

    I just copy and pasted the list from the thread, for the most part

    I'd like to downvote all of them that fail at a witty title.

    Also, if I had realized we were making suggestions for themes, I would've given mine some thought instead of pulling them out of my ass.

    Either way, like TLB, I'm too lazy to do this each day and will just wait and see what happens. I'll vote when it gets down to a poll.

    it's not whacko if you're an adult though. light up, mom and dad!

    Before I get infraction, TLB and I are definitely crafting a superhero who only speaks in slogans. So we're totally just working on our pitch right now.
