@kilomac29: @scouts1998: @manneffest: @2cool4fun: @madeinbangladesh: @v_scarlotte_rose: thanks for voting guys! 6

I'll be voting wednesday (already said that, but thought I'd say it again). calling out @battle_forum_junkie (because he commented earlier and I didn't see his comment and I'm curious what he liked this month). Also calling out @johnkmccubbin91, @rustyroy, @tomlikesfries, @kfhrfdu_89_76k, @enigmalantern, @lifeboy, @thefirstlantern, @donfelipe because they commented on the last poll (I am sure some of you might not vote or might not be able to vote, but I like to say hello since I am not on as much these days...)

also: 2cool4fun: I noticed that you voted for more than one character in the Wild Card: Best Supporting Character catagory. I'm not really comparing your votes to anyone else's so I am not sure what characters/issues are winning for this catagory, but I wanted to stress that it is one character per vote. Just to let you know, if you haven't edited your votes before this thread is locked, I will compile everyone else's votes for that catagory. If after I compile things I see your votes will indeed help a specific character I will add full pts to that character. if there is more than one character (like if Hellblazer and Swampthing were seperately voted upon by others, then I will split the value of your votes in half for each character, thus making your votes worth less than they would normally. Just letting you know. We'll see what happens in regards to Amanda Conner & Jimmy Palmiotti since @manneffest also voted for those creator cameos...if it looks like they will win I'll make a decision I supose...

oh, so far I have, in regards to suggestions for next month's wild card:

  • best battles
  • best coloring

Did best battles (not that I am incharge of what goes for next month...you guys are), but coloring we haven't done (could be itneresting).

the idea I had was a new year resolution sort of thing where you post the titles you resolve to read (because you have been lazy or they haven't been published yet). I supose it would have been fitting to do a "most thankful" wild card for the highlights of your poll, but I supose I could also do that later.

We will probably be doing the Best of the Year Poll as well so remember to check that out next month! plus, I want to do a list before the year is out if I have the title/energy (been so busy recently...)

@the_poet: thanks for all your work on this poll every month, I really enjoy doing them each month.

A best coloring wild card would be cool, but fair warning, I can tell you now my vote will go to whatever Matt Hollingsworth or Laura Allred do next month.

Posted by scouts1998

@the_poet wild card next month could be best sound effect

Posted by The Poet

@kilomac29: my pleasure. I enjoy seeing what other people are reading/liking and what their opinions are on what is the "best".

coloring would certainly be intersting (would be more specific than interior art and I could vote for the titles which might not be among my top 3 interior art titles, but they have the most vibrant colors...would be intersesting to compare people's votes between interior and coloring just to see if they are different/the same and if we see some new faces in the poll results or if they are usual suspects...). Like I said: I enjoy seeing other people's opinions.

@the_poet wild card next month could be best sound effect

that could be interesting. If we do that I'd like to compare writing to that catagory (like interior/coloring) just to see the differences/similarities. I figure that would voted via "ComicBookTitle #xxx - soundeffect word"

Posted by EnigmaLantern

I'm up for best sound effect or best colouring

Posted by The Poet

@the_poet: If you would like me to change my vote I definitely could. I don't have to have both, I would like to, but if its against the rules I will change it.

Persoanlly, I think it is fine. I never cared much for rules in this contest (one of the first things I threw out when I took over as host...). I'm just interested in whatever is best for the nominated characters. Whatever is more common in the votes. I am not looking at the votes right now, but combinations of major characters might not be that common in people's votes (we'd be more likely to see Batman by himself than Superman/Batman combo so I'd split such a vote up), but if we're talking one appearence characters like those it would be more beneficial to keep them together than splitting them up.

I figure I'll allow it (would be easy for all parties involved especially me as compiler).

@battle_forum_junkie: remember that I often leave this open a little bit longer than I actually said so that I can get more people (plus if I had gotten all the way to the very last moment before I post the results this thread would be locked). Just remember that and you'll know I haven't compiled stuff yet. Plus: I haven't had time to vote myself, so there's that too...

Right.. Sorry about that.

oh, no worries! my trouble is that I often forget what I actually said because I just glance at the calendar and write a week from whenever I post but I don't really pay much attention to what I actually say.
