If you don't know what this is, we like to put together crowd sourced lists of our favourite things and see what comes out on top. We've done NES Games, Office Supplies and Adventure Movies to name a few but we are looking forward. And you get to help choose the next one by voting! Right now, we are half way through top 50 animal sidekicks. Check it out!

Now let's look at the future choices...

Top 50 Plants - @Kirin
Top 50 Winter Holiday Songs - @Johnny Unusual

Here are also some general rules:

1) The vote will go on for four days and you can vote for one topic and can change your votes at any time.
2) If you vote for something PLEASE do so with the intent of participating. I certainly relate to voting for a topic you think is neat but don't feel you could contribute much too. And its fine if you vote and maybe find later you don't have the time. Things happen. But if you vote for one you might not want to actually contribute to, you might not be alone. We want the winner to have as many contributors as possible, thus making it more fun.
3) Please do not crap on anyone's choices or submissions. Its cool to talk about your preferences and even try to convince people why one choice is good but please don't mock other choices or try to hector people into voting for a specific choice. It just makes a fun thing less fun. However, if you have legitimate concerns about a specific topic, perhaps for reasons someone didn't consider, like sensitivity reasons or a possible problematic nature, don't hesitate.

You have four days to vote. Please ask any questions of the lists that you want.


Summon for hire
I keep nominating for consistency and am looking forward to running it some day, but to be totally honest I would be *not at all sad* to run Plants in, like, January, as opposed to trying to do it over the holiday season when I have a ton of travel lined up myself.

Both I and @Kirin tied which means one thing... No Lists!!! No, wait both lists. I'll discuss with Kirin how we want to do things soon. Look forward to it.

Johnny Unusual

So here's the plan: I'll open up a thread around November 10th and sometime after my list is done or nears completion, Kirin can start his list.

Ah! My computer is in the shop. Yuck. Glad this happened before the list started When it comes back, I think it will be time to open up for votes. Yeah, I know it's earlier than I said but I think I might need a bit of extra time to get ready. I hope a lot of people take part!
