Since we did cartoons already I'll go with sad songs this time around.

Gotcha!

The list so far:

Top 50 Female Characters in Video Games
Top 50 Mario Characters/Enemies
Top 50 Pokemon
Top 50 Fruits and Vegetables
Top 50 Video Games of the 21st Century
Top 50 Horror Movies
Top 50 Mecha
Top 50 Sporting Contests
Top 50 Star Trek Episodes

Did I miss any? There's a precedent for that happening, so please let me know if I have.

sorry can you amend mine to read "Top 50 Mario Characters/Enemies?" That was the original pitch but I forgot to write it right this time around.

Enemies aren't characters?

Well, I did it anyway.

Oh, and I can contend some enemies aren't characters. Like half of the villains in the Marvel Movies. #zing #burn #ohnohedidn't #shwing #talktothehand #lostthethreadofthis

It's not. Next time, please, bold your choice or the odds that I miss it are even higher than usual.

Maybe not specific enough, but because I actually spent more money on music than on games in the last decade, I'd be interested in the Top 50 Bands.

Johnny opens up a voting round when the current list hits #25 or so. Anybody can propose a new topic then (with the understanding that she who proposes a list will host it, unless she says otherwise) and then we vote to see which Top List is the next one.

Yep. Of course, I assume "interested in top 50 bands" means you'd want to host the list, right?

Ah I guess I misunderstood the point of this thread. I thought it's for submitting ideas for toplists.

Not that there's any harm in throwing out a suggestion and asking if anyone else wants to run with it, but you should be clear that you're not actually submitting a nomination to vote on (which implies running it yourself).

Yeah, I just wanted to throw out a suggestion and see if there's interest in running it. Didn't realize you have to run it yourself then. That's what I misunderstood.

It seems it would require quite some time dedication to run something like this yourself, especially if you write something up on every top title. Might as well just make my own music thread then.

Yeah, it definitely does. Having run one of these now I can confirm that these are A PROJECT people do for the enjoyment of the forum, that should only be taken on if you'll have some serious free time to sink into it. But no problem brainstorming ideas, maybe someone else will pick it up eventually.

Just letting everyone know we hit the top 25 today, so I'm assuming it's time for people to start submitting ideas for the next list.

Top 50 Movies of the 1900-30's (and before, if you want to vote for that guy sneezing or a train coming in).

I have no intention of running another one of these for a good long time, if ever, but I think that Top 50 video game intro videos would be an interesting one if anyone would like to run with it.

I would be interested in Top 50 Simpsons Episodes. I don't want to host it, but if someone else does I would offer to do the vote counting.
