Title: 2022/3 Group Build Poll
Post by: GTX_Admin on January 07, 2022, 02:44:17 AM
It's time to vote on which Group Builds you would like to see in 2022 (and some of 2023).  I have put up all the suggestions proposed in the last 12mths.  See here (http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?topic=49.600) for more info on each - starting at about Reply#613.  Also feel free to ask.  Please note that I may have tweaked a couple.

Poll will run for 2wks.  Each member gets 5 votes and you are able to change your mind if you so desire (e.g. to help whittle down the results if you see your preferred is not going anywhere).  Campaigning to get your favourites picked is allowed.

"From the Sea" or Marine Corps Group Build, either one works!

Of course "The End of the World as We Know It" may be more positive, such as the successful replacement of fossil fuels, the end of overpopulation, the end of nation states or, going out into the realm of extreme fantasy, the end of stupidity.

Or merely, the end of Humankind.

There will be no end to stupidity. Question is where to put them so they don't hurt themselves.

How about the Arctic Archipelago? This group of 36,563 islands in the Arctic Sea comprises much of the territory of Northern Canada.  The Polar Bears are also open to trying news foods.

I was thinking of a lifetime kindergarten classroom but the arctic would work too. Maybe the extreme liberal ones in the Arctic and the extreme conservative ones in the Antarctic so they can't fight with each other anymore. I know, getting political but I just want some peace and quiet for a while.

A question . . .
If the 'Aerobatic Teams' idea were to be selected, could I do some more 'Black Diamonds' builds . . . ?


cheers,
Robin.

Only 8 days left.

Over 35 members voted, which is about the max. for this kind of poll.

Time to re-think your votes, if the subjects you selected are down below 5 votes, I would suggest.

Seems a lot of people who suggested something haven't voted for their subject ----

In light of the suggestion of "accommodation" above, I recommend that the following two group builds be combined as they are similar in scope and theme:

Trashcanistan GB - 7 (3.7%)
Desperation GB - 3 (1.6%)

As above, so below  ;)   I have been having a time with this thing. I took it out to correct the spelling, wound up deleting, double posting and deleting... :-[ In any case. VOTE PIRATE GB!
