In all honesty, this attitude makes me feel like... "why would I even want to join here? New members are obviously not welcome." Now you guys were here first - - I get that. But if you want new folks to come on board and make this site as big as Scum and other sites, why do you want to dissuade people from joining in? It just doesn't make sense to me.

Anyway... I just thought I'd mention this after reading all that before I got to the point.

Why are you even having the voting open at all?  ::)

Thanks for joining the site, you are most certainly a welcome addition as are all the other new members who have joined since the polling started.

First off, since you are new, a brief history lesson, when the site was started (perhaps before you were even collecting) it wasn't as a competition with any other Site.  It was just one more place to go for like minded folks.  

With that in mind, please don't interpret this wrong, but I have ZERO interest in being as big as Rebelscum.  I was at RS from the early days (back when Phillip had just an email group), and saw it grow, that thing is a machine and has people who make their living doing computer stuff on staff and as owners.  That stuff is hard work.  They are a premier site and deserve that status.  But you might find it hard to believe but little JD.com here is considered a top 5 fansite by Hasbro and LFL.

Second, again, your shiny newness is blinding me here, JediDefender has been doing a Fan Poll for 5 years and delivering the results to Hasbro at SDCC each year.  I know some other sites have imitated this lately as well and that is great, the more interaction with Hasbro the better.  

Finally, the Vote for 1 figure really didn't have to be, there was much discussion about pulling the confirmed figures off our list we already had spent WEEKS compiling and then letting the staff pic the final few.  We had a staffer give up his vote for the people because participation is fun.  And to let members (new and old) who missed the Jedidefender Wishlists get one last chance to chime in.

So are we being dick-ish for not having an open free for all? maybe.  Are we scaring away new members cuz we don't want to recreate all the work we already did a month ago?  perhaps.  Will we let a bunch of 1 post voters with identical IP addresses skew the vote? doubt it.  If we have to watch the vote with just one figure, think of the pain it would have been to open all 30 slots to the masses.

Rest assured if you are a 1 post voter with a unique IP your vote counts.

We are not a closed society, but more of a Gated Community/Neighborhood.  We let members/residents, their invited guests and delivery folks in, but we don't encourage drive by traffic or solicitors.  It keeps the kids safe.

I'd say anyone with less than 50 posts ought not to be considered; whose vote is this supposed to be for, the real JD community or random people who will never return to the site again after that one post?

Chiming in a bit late but this is exactly what's been done over at Snowtroopers... anyone below 40 posts isn't allowed to vote and if a new member joins and suddenly spams more than 40 posts, they get disqualified anyway...

Now having said that... I vote for Jocasta Nu!!!   (No, no I joke!!! I joke!!!!) I'll vote for Lt Sheckil...

No, no, no, you've all got it wrong, the ONLY figure worth voting for is not on your list - it's George Lucas in check shirt, circa 1976... ;D

That's not my real vote, by the way. ;)

i vote for Bastila Shan.   

I almost picked Palpatine Office Duel, but he's already on the list in Senate duel form, hope he eventually gets made.

3rd pick was Magnaguard SA, but i know they'll eventually get to him & i hope they don't half-ass it to make us buy it again.  Eg. knees, no ankles or ankles and no knees
Are you threatening me master jedi?
