    I closed the Survey thread itself. It will be resurrected after the final reveal.

    Just wanted to create a new thread for discussion during the interim. I'll keep the official survey thread visible until the Flyweight reveal, which I hope will be in a few days.

    I have complete compatible submissions from the following list below! THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH FOR PARTICIPATING!

    I can't wait to crunch these numbers! :thumbsup:

    BTW, I have backed up every single list from each and every one of 24 submissions. So in the extremely unlikely event of a forum disaster or some other mishap, I have all the raw data backed-up.

    And the number-crunching process for Flyweights is now officially underway.

    In the event I come across someone who inadvertently either mis-numbered or included a duplicate name - I will send a pm to that poster asking for clarification. I'll give them 48 hours to remedy any such mistake with me via pm. In the event they don't do so within two days, I'm going to only count the first instance of a duplicate name, and disregard the second name.

    If that happens and I don't receive an answer within 48 hours (which I seriously HOPE we can avoid) - I'm going to simply include 14 names if such a situation arises. I'm hoping to avoid that, but I want to try and get through these as quickly as I possibly can.

    Really excited to see how this pans out.

    The participation is better than I thought it would be tbh, BW and FLW are famously unpopular on these boards.

    What if I voted Bonecrusher Smith for all 15 heavyweight spots? (G)

    Honestly, appreciate you putting in the hours and effort. I look forward to the results and seeing how my list compares to the consensus.

    @Rumsfeld are you going to reveal it list by list or all at once?

    I asked him that in the main thread and he said no. He is just going to do the work of tabulating, but I would have enjoyed seeing his. Unless he has changed his mind

    The plan at the moment is to do 1 at a time. Flyweights are essentially finished. Just waiting for clarification on 1 list. So I will meanwhile move onto the Bantamweight numbers. NOTE - I haven't sorted the data for Flyweight, so I still do not know the final tallies.

    I may possibly change my mind, but at the moment I'm still leaning towards doing a Flyweight reveal as soon as that list is finalized. Or, as soon as it's finalized and I subsequently create the necessary elements.

    No. I'm just the number cruncher and overseer on this one.

    On that note I'm going to open a new survey in the next week or so. I'll let it run its course until mid-November, give or take. I'm really digging this general idea, and I think the next one can be something truly special.

    I still need quick clarification on 1 Flyweight list and 2 Bantamweight lists. Those 2 divisions are otherwise completely logged.

    Moving to Featherweight.

    A few minor issues have already been resolved. I'm going to keep a tally of outstanding issues as I go.

    Right now...
    1 - Flyweight
    1 - Bantamweight
    1 - Feather

    These are all minor issues. If I send you a pm PLEASE TRY to get back to me ASAP.

    Just send me the necessary adjustments directly via pm. In most instances this boils down to (SPOILER) 1 single point allotted to the 15th place selection. If I don't hear back on any would be issue (all of them are of the duplicate name or duplicate numbering variety) - I will do my best to "determine the intent" - and worst case scenario, we lose a point in the math, which will hardly be a game changer.

    I understand that not everyone is here every day, but in the event a minor issue remains unresolved - I will tackle it to the best of my ability accordingly.

    Throwing this all out there in the open.

    But the good news is those 3 divisions are otherwise logged. 1 minor issue in each.
