2022/3 Group Build Poll
« 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 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.
All hail the God of Frustration!!!

You can't outrun Death forever.
But you can make the Bastard work for it.

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 am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

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.

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

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.
