The Horrilbleness of the Poll
In celebration of the enthusiastic awfulness of Horrilbe Ahnohnay Poetry Thread, here is an equally horrilble, truly vogonic poll to determine who, from that group of bards, might be called MO:UL's WORST POET.

Since the average, humble, contest organizer is restricted to a poll of only ten option, this has propelled us into realms of polldom we would have preferred not to have to deal with. But we have to. It's not a bug, it's a feature!

We have 24 candidates. We have organized these into groups of three.

**********************************************************************************************************

The instructions are simple, Read the thread! Then pop back here and check the poll option groups. If your favourite poet is in that group, vote for that group - in a later and smaller poll we will help you extract your poet from that group in order to raise them to exalted status.

We recognize that all polls may merely end up being popularity contests, and that this poll, even more than others, is inherently flawed. If a mod wishes to give us a poll with twenty-four options, this flaw will be eliminated. That would be nice. If not, meh, play along - it's all in a spirit of fun!
***********************************************************************************************************

The Length of the Poll

The poll will run for 2 WEEKS!
****************************************************************************************************
The Prize List:

- A winner will have a selection of their work published in an upcoming issue of The Archiver

- Also the winner will receive a completely imaginary (unless someone actually wants to design this, but that is a whole, nother contest!) Cyan-coloured T-Shirt with the words MO:UL's WORST POET on the front underneath which is the logo of the contest (namely a dead poet spinning in its grave) and on the back the word HORRILBLE! (thusly spelled)


Squish to all and Good Luck!


nerfy.

:shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Disgraceful!! Hitana and Gorobay's poetry is far too GOOD to win this contest!! And everyone KNOWS people are voting for JWPlatt simply because they sympathise with him cause he missed out on the Flathead prize, because his work was so horrible that it discombobulated any possible competition! ;)

Oh well, still a week and a half to go. Let's see if things pick up :D

Well, if both Gorobay and Hitana are posting, I guess I should make a token post so representation of our untalented group
is complete.

Yeah, the Flatthead prize - I was robbed and everyone knows it. Either that or deserved to lose (win? Gah, Hitana is right - so confusing).

Shouldn't the poll graph head off to the left from center instead of to the right? I mean, all votes should be considered negative, shouldn't they?
