Changed the the voting thread names so you know what you are voting for.  Still need to pretty up the first post but have to go do this pesky thing called work now.

Also, decided to be the anti-xiagen and allow you all to see the vote counts after you have voted.

You guys and gals want me to post this in the Facebook group? See if it gains some traction? Or would that sway it too close to a popularity vote based on a high population v. low discussion rate?

I'd say share it as widely as possible, since one of the hopes is that it'd bring more people to the forum - can't really do that without spreading the word!

@ScarletBea that is a top cake, it's glorious. I might steal that image to use somewhere else. ;)

and Hedin/Raptori thanks for new headings and showing votes, that makes it much more fun.

@Doctor_Chill, I think we wanted to put it on FB to attract more members to actually join the Forum. At present you can't vote unless you're signed in, same as posting etc, which means if it's publicised there they will need   to sign up to join in, which is only fair. F-F  is on Twitter too can we have it sent out on the official @FantasyFaction ?

There are so many votes, and comments just from 'the usual suspects'.

Voters, pleeeeease, communicate with us! ;D

As far as Twitter goes I tweeted it last night and the main account (plus a few others) retweeted it.   I did mean to join the FB group but slow Internet made me give up but Chilly covered that already it seems.

Many thanks @Arry we're pretty Likes-dependent here but it's not a dangerous addiction . :D

Looks like the vote totals are slowing down.  Will put out another Twitter and FB blast tonight or tomorrow and see if we can get some people in over the weekend.  New polls will be up Sunday night US time.

Interesting that none of the battles so far are even close.
But round 2 should be tough, when these easy winners have to start facing off.   :)

Yeah, the closest one - accordign to the seedings - should've been Powder Mage vs ASOIAF. Just goes to show that the nominations were a bit skewed!  :P
