So how do you want this poll to work? It's already possible to change votes, but how long should it run?

Shorter is probably better. This sort of thing can get hamstrung by too much democracy.

I'm up for it. I nominate The Wasp Factory by Iain Banks as it's been on my kindle ages and I've not read it yet.

Thinking leave this one up until Monday, so the noms can come in, and we'll learn as we go and all that.

Id like to do this but Id never read a book in a couple of weeks.  I have to be in the mood to read.

Definitely, that's why I think a book of short stories is best. Less pressure, just as much interest.

How about limiting it to 5 nominations at a time?

Then maybe go back to them once the first books been read or something?
Could it have feasibly climbed high enough to leave the atmosphere? ???

It's a decent idea, but the books that never get selected might grind things to a halt. I don't know how we should handle eliminated noms.

I don't know about nominations TBH, always been in ones where each person takes a turn to choose something. I guess the only way is to scrap them, or scrap ones that get less than a certain number of votes maybe?

Man, Ian W's idea is best actually.

List everyone in the OP then we go through each book that they choose. Makes total sense.

:lol: Thing about noms is that it's too serious, imo. If I nominate something for the poll, and no one votes for it, cool. If it's my turn and I pick some s*** everyone hates, god damn.

Aye. Just felt I did it at the same time as you and you came out tops every time. Just in a bad mood now after Pixelhax.

Have to get this out now:

Pixel you're either hacking with the demo, or you're too f***ing good to constantly hammer us to the ground with it every time we play. Starts to take the p*ss a bit. I mean, I don't want you to not enjoy the game, but at the same time I'd quite like to enjoy playing it too.

I've read a couple of the suggestions already but it's not a problem TBH, I'd happily re-read them and come up with some actual opinions.

:lol: Alright, how about this. Everyone that's in, pick five books. I'll list them in the OP, and we'll nominate someone to be first. Then we'll take those five books and vote on what to read?

I don't care about just voting on the ones we have FWIW, I don't mind if mine never gets chosen. Not that this helps in any way.
