A reason to start another thread (to my way of thinking) is to allow discussion over (on?) a certain progressive page count. This would involve an orderly progression for topics, character motivation, plot discussion, setting, etc.

Is there any way to find out who voted for Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom and sort out the poll so their votes can be erased and they can be PMed to vote again for a different book? Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom was not supposed to be part of the poll. So the people who voted for it wasted their votes. And their votes should go to one of the other choices which do belong.

Please let's do this right. Nate took it upon himself to start the poll and when I tried to correct it, we got the correct poll taken down and this one left up. And I want to see things put right instead of this sham of a poll that's incorrect.

So there were two polls. I knew I had voted in one and then the thread disappeared and I ended up voting in this one. Very confusing.

What a mess. Mr. Bob takes a short vacation and anarchy breaks out.

Only 6 votes for Down in any case.

Is it really not supposed to be here?

If final winning tally is by 6 votes or less, will the Supreme Court be called in to settle this?

Of course, it will be bigger [and more important] than Bush v Gore.
