Short list for upcoming GBs
« on: February 03, 2013, 02:43:44 PM »
Ok folks,

I finally got around to organising a follow up poll to sort out the GB calendar.  What I have done is take the top 6 options from the last poll (excluding the Desert Warfare GB which is already underway).  You can cast one vote (and change it if you change your mind).  The top 3 will be selected to move forward with - the reason for this is that I feel people may want other GBs in the second half of the year so will conduct another poll then.

Proposed calendar would be for each GB to go fro approx 2 months, so therefore we would have GBs from:
1 Mar - 30 Apr
1 May - 30 Jun
1 Jul - 30 Aug

This Poll is up for two weeks.  Feel free to campaign for your favourite.

Regards,

Greg

The go across in a straight line. Right now the Beyond '46 GB has one vote or 11.1% of total votes cast so far.

The green bar is just a quick way to see how they all compare without looking at the numbers.

I hope this helps.

I just realised, I don't need to have any extra votes, we just need to engage in careful (i.e., creative) vote-counting. So, any vote for something that starts with B gets transferred to something that has a comma in it, and call it done. ;D

Well it looks like I don't get to use my executive powers after all...damn!!! :icon_swat:

Ok then, the rabble have spoken.  The next three Group Builds will be:

1 Mar - 30 Apr:  All Things Floaty GB
1 May - 30 Jun:  Beyond '46 GB
1 Jul - 30 Aug:  The Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda GB

That will give people a bit of time to plan things and generate ideas.

I also need volunteers to act as Group Build Moderators for these, starting very soon with the "All Things Floaty" GB.  Please PM me if you are interested.

Regards,

Greg

I find it quite ironic that we will be going from a Desert themed GB to a Water themed GB... ;D
