Most of the reasons I've seen range from "they never choose what I want" to "the official board sucks, is full of elitists and they banned me cuz I didn't toe a party line"  the second is especially funny because usually those people have very strong opinions of their own in discussions and usually end up killing any they are in.

i guess if someone can't hold their nose long enough to post in one thread and then vote in a poll, kick rocks?

I've found that 99% of he time, anyone who says stuff like that is really someone who thinks that attacking the sexual orientation of someone they disagree with is the height of intellectual argument.

EDIT: Oh, missed the post from Speck. >_<

Nooo0000oooOOOoO! My Kuma-bro, you could have saved our pick from being a one-voter! Together we could have saved the poor mech from a lifetime of confusion thanks to weird art that doesn't match the stats of any variant!

...Next time, friend...next time.

So how does the poll thread then work?   The top suggestions from this one are voted on again?

3053: Star Colonel Rexor Kerensky: The Silver Wolves

Generally, yes. The way it worked last time (which could always change) was that the top few requests which had the most votes were added to a poll. Then, everyone was allowed two votes, and voted for which two they wanted the most. When it was over, IWM ended up making the two units that got the most votes.

I would assume it will be a similar format this time around, but no idea if we will still get two votes and the top two will get made, or if the numbers will be different. We should find out soon!

Poll Threads have been created, so I am locking this thread.
