Poll Results So Far

Interesting. The Do You Want to Know the Name of the Doctor? poll now has over 500 responses. Earlier in its run (about 200 responses), “no” had 80% of the vote. This result has just now dropped to 69%. I find that interesting.

It may be unscientific to talk about poll results before polling is over, but it’s an unscientific poll anyway, so I don’t think that much additional harm can result.

I’m interested in your thoughts. Please feel free to leave comments. If there’s a technical difficulty leaving comments, I’d be most grateful if you let me know. I’m not finding any issue, but it’s possible for the comments system to work for me and not for you.

Edit: Here and here are where most people are leaving their comments, far as I can tell. If you spot a location for significantly more comments, please do let me know and I’ll add a link.

Edit 2: The poll logs IPs to prevent duplicate voting, so if you’re behind a NAT with someone who already voted, you won’t be able to until you can sign on from a different IP address. Sorry!

Edit 3: The poll is now closed. Thanks, everyone!

The Most Boo-hoo-tiful Story

541889_439973966057300_605957362_nThis post at Reddit got me thinking about stories that make me cry, which then got me thinking about stories that make you cry. Thus, a poll.

What episode/story made you cry the most?

Given is a randomized list of most of the ones that got me – I left out a few that might indicate issues with my psychology. As an aid to memory, in the parentheses are some of the characters you may or may not have cried about.

Please pick the #1 most weepy one. If your top pick isn’t in the list, please mention it in the comments. Also feel free to elaborate in the comments what exactly got you, why, etc.
