Default Popularity Contest #23: Out of the Shadows

Wow, long time no see. Feels like it's been since forever since we've been here! We are here to vote for the next and the people who are looking to host them. Good people, all.

For anyone still unclear what is going on, here's the short version: we chose a topic, then select our favourite things of that topic, compile them together and see who takes the top 50 (or less, in some cases, though that has yet to come up)

Here are the topics you can vote for...
Top 50 Boss Fights - Solitayre -2 Mogri, Thraeg +1 Torzelbaum
Top 50 Cartoon Characters - Johnny Unusual
Top 50 Detectives - Rascally Badger -1 Issun
Top 50 Draculas - Dracula +1 Doctor Nerd
Top 50 Mario Characters and Enemies 2: Top 50 Legend of Zelda Characters and Enemies - Loki +1 Thraeg
Top 50 Mecha - Kirin -1 Torzelbaum
Top 50 Numbers - Bulgakov +2 Doctor Nerd, Issun, -1 Pizzarino Sbarro
Top 50 Puppets - Issun
Top 50 Robot Masters - Positronic Brain

So here are the rules:
1. Vote for up to three topics. Three is the number of topics you can vote for and the number of votable topics is three. One and two is acceptable. Four is not. Five is right out. By the way, not a rule but my suggestion: only vote for something you would participate in. It might seem nice to support someone but if you do and then you and a bunch of other people don't take part, then it might have a disappointing turn-out, which would be a bummer for all. Not that it has come up yet in a list...
2. As the limit is three lists, if you vote for more, you should remove the excess votes or all will be voided when it comes time to tabulate the votes (I'll post warnings. Generally it's a mistake so I want to give people opportunities to correct.)
3. You can change your votes at any time... before the deadline at least. Just PM me for any change you want to make. You can also post, but I can't promise I won't catch it.
4. Please, no trash talking other topics or people for voting for them. This is a fun election and telling people they are should feel bad for voting wrong, even if said in jest, is decidedly not fun. But if you have questions and concerns about topics you don't know if you are interested in or don't know how feasible it is, don't be afraid to ask.
5. If there's a tie, we'll do 'em all! It will be up to the winning hosts to decide who will go first or second or whatevs.
6. This isn't a hard and fast rule but just a suggestion: once there's a winner, wait for the currently running list to hit it's #10 entry before posting your thread calling for nominations.

The poll closes around Tuesday afternoon (or morning if you are in the west. And even then, this is a North American-centric view). Enjoy and let me know if I'm forgetting something.

Johnny, you should really bold the part about voting for 3. You're just making a headache for yourself otherwise.

There can't possibly be more than 32 odd Draculas...

That would make 64 with an even/odd Dracula split, though!

With some PMed additions, we are now at a three way tie.

If we do Zelda characters everyone vote for Geno. Loki loves him some Geno.

This was tough but I went with all baddies all the time. Which sadly excluded Zelda. But only because I am fascinated by 50 Draculas

I thought we had done Cartoon Characters before but I checked and realized the previous Top 50 was Cartoons (i.e. Cartoon Shows).

I can’t remember agonizing over what to vote for quite so intensely.

BTW, I said the poll ends Monday, but it ends Tuesday. Because I'm dumb.

I am totally agnostic to whether or not my list wins or not, and Bulgakov has been trying to run a Numbers list for over a year. I do in fact feel bad about this.

Just to note that someone has made another vote change. If you want to see how to adjust the poll you see above, check out the initial post.

Don't feel bad, Solitayre. I actually like Boss fights too, and we have a really strong set of list options overall this round! Given how many good ones we have, maybe there's a better way to set a docket for future lists than a single winner-take-all contest.

That said, we ARE in a single winner-take-all contest for this vote, so here's my opportunity to be (respectfully) ruthless in the final 24 hours and show of my love of political manipulation in the process.

I have never seen Numbers perform this well in a poll; in contrast I would expect that Boss Fights will be in the top 3 contenders in a future round of voting pretty easy (That's how TT rolls, after all).

Therefore: if any of you really want Numbers to win and voted for Boss Fights as well as Numbers, you have the option of PMing Johnny and changing your vote away from boss fights between now and tomorrow when the poll ends. If Boss Fights loses a few votes, it could push Numbers over the edge.

Again, I'm not dissing Boss Fights! It sounds like an interesting topic! Vote your heart, and may the best list win!

But Actually Vote Numbers

Dude, they're tied right now, which would mean you both get to do yours. This assuming things don't change in the next 24 hours.

Can confirm. I voted for numbers, and now I own not one but two sticks of Twix.
