I think all you need to do is have a second poll for the ideas tied for third. <...>

Yes, that's basically what I was thinking. :smiley: Run Sci-Fi and Firefighters as #1 and #2, have a second poll for the remaining options.
Cheers,

Another thought is the whole GB within a GB idea.

For example, the main GB might be Unarmed but within it is Civil, Military, Swords Into Plowshares and VIP transport.

You could do this with Firefighting as well. Maybe even call it Emergency! or whatever and have GBs within it for firefighters, air ambulances, police (will they ever leave me alone?), etc.

No matter how things shake out the discussion has been most enjoyable. Thank you.

Folks, having totalled up the results and consulted with Czar Vlad in Moscow, the results in order of priority are as follows:

  • Sci-Fi GB
  • Fire fighting GB
  • Civil Transport GB
  • Invasion of Japan/Japan 46 GB
  • Helicopters & autogyros GB
  • Scaleorama GB

The last 4 were all tied.  Given a number of the other options could be interpreted as versions of the Civil Transport GB, I am happy for it to go first of that lot.

On top of this, I am happy to have a year long quick build (no more than 48 hours) GB as well.

Now the fun part, locking down moderators.  As usual, either volunteer or be prepared to be volunteered!

I'm up for another turn in the Moderator seat.  No preference - put me in where ever needed.
