List of Popularity Contest You Want to See

What popularity contests would you like to see happen but maybe don't want to host. For me, I want top 50 Sports. I'm not a sports guy but I love sports manga/anime and that would make it easy for me to make a list.

Top 50 Fictional Mothers - but probably closer to Mothers' Day.

I imagine that'd have significant overlap with the current list, but that's probably fine as long as we don't do it right after.

A concept I had that needs some workshopping: Top 50 Advocates. It crossed my mind when thinking about how Carrie Fisher was an advocate for mental health, and I started thinking of advocates I respect. I'd be curious to see who other people look up to or are inspired by.

I see some issues though:
- Some people work for charities or organizations to do this full time, others use their fame/fortune as a platform for a message, and still others may only work on a small niche thing with limited time/funding and don't make headlines so it's hard to compare.

- There's a very high potential for people to get upset if one person's cause is divisive, if their methods were too extreme, if other aspects of their life are shady, etc.

- I also think it needs to be run by someone who is much more in tune with current events and awareness than I am.

I dunno, I like the concept but something isn't quite right with it. Maybe top 50 charities or something instead, but I really would like to focus more on individuals.

There would presumably be some overlap! Some people actually go get themselves a whole law degree to be able to better advocate for the causes they support...

I know some folks are tired of video game-related lists, but not me! Some options that I think would be somewhat fresh ground:

Pokemon (this feels like the next natural step after Mario and Zelda characters)

Levels (there's some gray area here, but what else is new with these lists? I actually would like to run this one).

Bringing up sports is interesting. I'd like to see a Top 50 Athletes list.

Despite only playing tiny bits of the original games, after almost 6 years of GO I feel almost qualified to run that one - except that it’s *crying out* for original art and I don’t think I can afford to commission that many pieces. 😅

Though I guess me doing amateur scribbles from memory could be morbidly amusing.

Many of these lists have me feeling underinformed relative to most of the people submitting lists, but that's one of the few that requires domain knowledge where I feel like I could actually contribute.

Which is a fancy way of saying I wouldn't mind running it at some point.
