FanPost

Vote for your favorite complete line up...


Okay... bear with me here, this is my first attempt to do an actual fan post. Hopefully, I don't stumble too much.

I made this suggestion a few times in the threads, and decided it was time to take the initiative and go ahead and post the poll. Since the poll itself won't allow the detail of the full 1-9 line up orders I've selected, I've posted them in detail after the jump.

In the meantime, I tried to give credit where credit was due and listed multiple authors if I saw the same line up proposed by multiple people, but if you proposed the identical line up and I didn't list you, my apologies. If I didn't include your desired line up, my apologies there as well, but I was looking for ten, including the OTM consensus, the one Ben detailed out for us in the posts, and, of course, the one I like the most too.

Without further ado...

(Damn... just realized I accidentally rigged the poll... by titling my choice "My Own Design," I will probably pick up all the folks that don't like the other 9 line ups, and vote for that choice intending it literally: My Own Design. Oops!)
