@Lvenger: @cbishop: counted! (or rather will be counted...)

I need to leave for just a little bit, but I'll be back and when I am back I'll lock this thread and however many votes I have here (plus my own) I will use to break the ties and the list will be released after that (and after I fix a few other things). So either tonight or tommorow it will be released...

Not sure I understand the ranking. You just find the name of the story and see what ranking it comes under.

My favorite story is

Death of Superman, where does that come.

@time: its a tie breaker, so under each categories, rank from the one you liked the best to the worst.

if you don't like any of the stories, then I guess you don't have to vote. :}

@time: yeah, like @sethysquare: said, this is just tie breaking. We finished Final Order Voting. and this was just to break some ties which existed. I need to create two story arc pages and then I'll do the actual list.

oh, to answer your question, Death is in the top 10 and isn't tied. I'm not saying what got 1st, 2nd, etc. because you get to find that out soon...
