OK, so far we have...

Top 50 Numbers - Bulgakov
Top 50 Cartoon Characters - Johnny Unusual
Top 50 Mario Characters and Enemies 2: Top 50 Legend of Zelda Characters and Enemies - Loki
Top 50 Puppets - Issun
Top 50 Robot Masters - Positronic Brain
Top 50 Boss Fights - Solitayre
Top 50 Draculas - Dracula
Top 50 Mecha - Kirin
Top 50 Detectives - Rascally Badger


Did I miss any so far? Wow, 9 already. People have been hungry for this. Interestingly 7 1/2 of them are character-based ones. Looking forward to seeing what wins. Of course, you still have about 4 days to get your idea in if you have one!

Solitayre's list is at 25, so I think it's time, right Johnny?

Interesting idea but I think a lot of what would be on my list are be things that have not aged well.

By the way, we are accepting submissions until 8:02 my time on Wednesday afternoon (if you want to what it is your time, it is 4 days exactly from when THIS POST DROPPED! It should end in an 02.

And I'll be clear for anyone who hasn't done this yet: This is for the popularity contest lists we do where we collectively vote for our favourite things within a given topic (currently it is top 50 video game bosses)

Here are the rules:
1) To submit a list write your topic in bold, as I have done up above.

2) If you are going to write a joke suggestion, please don't bold it. Alternatively, if you ARE serious, PLEASE BOLD IT! Otherwise I might miss it. And I don't like being jerked around on this front.

3) One suggestion per person. If you suggest more than one and don't make any clarifications, I'll just submit the last one you posted.

4) Only submit in bold if YOU are planning on doing it. Don't just throw it out there are be like "wait, this is MY responsibility now?" If you submit it, you do it.

5) If you want to change your submission, you can do it any time before the deadline.

6) Please don't trash talk other topics if you don't like them. Like, it's fine if you can point out some potential feasibility issues (best songs of the 70s could be difficult, for example, due to the sheer number of songs and variety of participants tastes, resulting in something to stratified to become cohesive) or, say, could be problematic ("What, you don't like my 'top 50 ethnicities' list?"). And its fine to say "hmm, I'm not really interested in that topic". But please don't say "_______ is stupid/garbage/dumb." We are trying to stay positive with these lists and... well, what I want to say is



If I've missed and forgotten anything, please let me know.

I hear you. I mean, I technically have the time, but my real issue is that I have SO MANY ideas I want to do. A while ago, I thought "Oh, Best TV Series Finales" would be good. Then I thought "so would be Season Finales". Then "Best Pilots/First episodes". So know I have this TV trilogy list I want to do. And I feel like I'd have to start with Pilots/First Episodes... but I also think that one is the HARDEST SELL of the three!

Plus, basically name a genre of movie and I want to do that list (except animated movies. We did that already). Or fictional archetypes! (Ghosts! Vampires! Aliens! Time Travelers!) Or misc! (Cities! Countries! Animals! Fruits/Vegetables! Superpowers!)

BTW, I won't be bothered if anyone takes any of these. It's all good stuff.

I wouldn't worry about them. You can still like something and accept that there are things about it that have issues (assuming you are using "not aged well" in the sense of "problematic").

Yep, I'm just talking cartoon characters. From all media. Well, all motion media. Keep in mind when I say cartoons, I mean animated ones. Though top 50 Comic Characters is something I'm also wanting to do.

Top 50 PC Games (Floppy Era) Top 50 Retro PC Games

I'm willing to negotiate on the phrasing here. Basically, it's for DOS, Amiga, C64, MSX, ZX, what have you. I can't think of a better way to phrase it without excluding one of those.

Maybe I'll toss it out as Top 50 Retro PC Games and let people decide what that means. I don't want arguments about whether Space Quest 4 counts since it was released on both disks and CD. The lists tend to work themselves out in voting anyway.

I thought we had done this but it turns out we did a music thunderdome very similar to this...

As I've stated before, it seems pretty broad to me.
