I think you're fine but maybe you could try asking the narrator.

Peklo was worried they'd overdone it, and so they ate an entire thing of candy beans.

Reminder that lists are due by end of day Thursday.

The thread will start some indeterminate time after that.

As long as it's a format I can read, it's fine. I'll plug the results into my own spreadsheet anyway.

I didn't know this was a contest. At least, no one had announced that.

Today is the last day to get your lists in. If there are any stragglers still out there, get your lists in in the next 24 hours!

No way I'm gonna have time to add much description (if you end up needing something feel free to ping me later), but I'm gonna get in *some* kinda list by the end of the day. I hope.

Looking at the PM arms race chronicled up-thread, I suspect that everyone else has you covered!

Yeah I'm not going to get around to documenting all of mine, but if any of them make the cut and you need a write-up, just let me know.

Submissions are now closed

To anybody who wants to submit after this point, the best way to bribe me is with cookies.

Thank you to everyone who submitted a list. Counting my own, we have 26 entries! That's as many as I got in my first list. I wasn't expecting that!

I'll start putting together the results this weekend, look for the thread some time next week.

I didn't mean to contribute to any sort of word-count arms race! I was just naturally excited to write about my favorite fights, and then was encouraged when I saw others talking about the length of their submissions.

Same; I actually wasn't going to participate at first because the topic wasn't that interesting to me off-hand... but doing the writing process allowed me to approach the subject on my own terms, and it ended up being very fun to do.

I'm glad people got excited to write about bosses; although I admit people breaking their lists up across 3 or 5 or 9 PMs made counting votes more difficult so I do just want to say that in the future, if a person running a list doesn't want to read through 100 PMs to put the list together that we should respect that too. This shouldn't necessarily become the new standard.

I'll be finalizing the list today; I had sent out PMs to a couple people asking them to clarify what's on their lists and they all got back to me, so expect the show to start soon!

Alternatively, you could ask for a list separate from the writeups. Best of both worlds?

I just posted my list at the head of my first PM with this in mind.

I also suggested/asked for an increase to the PM size limit, but no response. *shrug*

I think for some previous lists the listmasters only asked for blurbs for the top few entries from each person.
