Finally sent my list. I didn't order the characters, just left them in the order I thought of them, because it didn't feel like there was a point for me? They all are special and important in some way, and I can't really say that one specific thing a character makes me feel is more important than another thing to me.

I'm not critizising the way these lists are done, if people enjoy ordering these lists that is great. I just think it's not the way for me anymore. Writing about what these characters mean was way more interesting and important for me.

I said I was going to doodle my list.

But, I was probably lying. You just can't trust Past Falselogic. I do know Present Falselogic isn't drawing anything.

Let's wait and see what Future Falselogic does!

It's literally the dawn of the final day!

This is it! The meme! It's here!

So far I've received 28 very good lists. If you haven't submitted a very good list and feel like you don't have time to put together a very good list, please just submit a good one instead.

You can do it I believe in you!!

I definitely don't have time for a very good list. A good list may be pushing it. But some kinda list, I hope.

Submission sent. Doing the write-ups took a lot longer than I anticipated but it was good fun, really helped me think about which characters I liked and why. Looking forward to the final list!

Heh, for me it's the opposite, I have no problems doing the write-ups, but coming up with what to put in the list in the first place, man...
Sent a short list with whichever characters I could think of that I had sth to say about, with almost-randomized order.
Does that count somehow as 'good'?

I sent in my list with like 30 mins to spare, made sure to include a note at the end saying that writeups would follow "whenever".

Writeups are not neccessary, but you can include them if you want.

Dangit, I got distracted by other things that needed doing last night and missed the deadline. If you haven't tabulated yet, lmk and I may be able to shoot you something in the next couple hours, but if not don't worry about it, my fault for missing.

Okay, I got a couple of last minute entries in, but I'm calling it here. Thank you so much everyone for voting. I received an amazing 37 very good lists. Not a stinker in the bunch. I hope you'll indulge me for a little bit while I prep the final list, but the countdown thread will start soon.

37 is substantial! I wonder if that's the most participants for one of these before.

Nah. IIRC, JRPGs is still the number to beat, and overall participation has been trending down lately.

I think it was 65 actually. My list is a distant second at 51 (although I think it's still tops in number of individual entries voted for at around 500, though I could be wrong).

Chrono Trigger topping the JRPG list with over 1,000 points with the old 1-25 point system is probably going to remain a forever record though.

That reminds me: I should've voted for Digdogger, who hates certain kind of sound.
