  • Monthly Poll

    Hey all,

    I invite the readership to suggest a poll for the month of February. So this thread should fill up quickly for this month's and next month's. Feel free to submit as many suggestions as you like. I'll choose the one I like best.

    I am also seeking a Poll Editor. The Poll Editor is an unpaid volunteer position. It could become a revolving position as well. You would be responsible for creating the monthly poll as well as instigating numerous polls here in the forum section. Your polls will have to be edited for grammar and spelling.

    So let the poll suggestions ensue and I'll be looking to invite one of you volunteers to be MWM's Poll Editor.

    Well Jhary, I'm always looking for ways to help you out. So if you need anything then I'm more than willing to pitch in what I can. As for what I would like to see for the poll next month... I think it should be related to the Elric Movie. It's a safe bet that that is the biggest buzz around here right now and I'm curious to see what people think about it.

      Some possible polls I have thought up :
      1 - What happens to Stormbringers victims souls ?
      2 - Which sub charecter do you hate the most ?
      3 - Which Character/book would make a better film than Elric ?
      4 - If they made a range of cuddly toys based on Moorcock charecters which would you take to bed at night ?
      5 - If you could buy a real stormbirnger eg it ate peoples souls and feed lifeforce back to the weilder etc would you buy one ?
      6 - Which of the above should be this months poll ?
      MEEP !

          killing, and the ground ran with blood.

            If I ever see a cuddly Elric toy I will have to cast myself off the nearest tall building. :lol:

                Polls

                Hello All:

                Just want to take a moment to introduce myself. I'm a longtime fan of Mr. Moorcock's and have read a majority of the books published by him over the years to my great enjoyment. I saw the post mentioning the need for a Poll Editor, someone to instigate discussions and create Monthly and Forum Polls. I have a bit of extra time right now, and offered my services. Berry kindly accepted. Thank You!
                I have no experience creating polls or with creative or professional writing of any kind, however I will do my best to provide interesting Polls for all. Everyone's input is encouraged and appreciated. Your ideas will be used, so keep them coming.

                  Hi MJR, congratulations on your appointment as poll editor.

                  I just wanted to make a suggestion for a possible poll topic.

                  Mike was asked once what role he would possibly choose if he had a cameo in the Elric films. My memory could be hazy, but I recall Mike himself suggested Smiorgan Baldhead. I wondered if we should have a poll to see if members thought they'd like to see Mike in the films, and if so, what part they could see him portraying.

                    Mike's role in Elric

                    Haha...

                    Just got a good idea for a way that Mike can be in the Elric movie. I don't really like the idea of him being a major character (Smiorgan Baldhead is on the boarderline between a major and a minor character if you ask me)... it just seems a little tacky, but that could just be me. Instead... I think it would be funny if they found a way to work him into the background in many different scenes. That way we could play "Where's Moorcock" at the movie theater. He could be just barely visable in the corner of a smokey bar or something. Donno... would just be funny.
