The final six fandoms for this year, in no particular order are:
You will see that we're doing The Avengers again (and since we only used the first movie last time, we can look at one of the sequels this time around)- we had enough votes in this fandom to consider it, even though other new fandoms had equal votes. The main reason for including it over previously unused fandoms was the fact that I could see some of the voters would be able to join in with this fandom where their other new fandoms hadn't gained enough votes, and it was difficult for me to justify including those smaller fandoms at the expense of other more popular fandoms which in turn would have excluded other voters from playing. Hopefully that makes sense!
We also had a large number of fandoms getting the exact same number of votes, so in the end, the final decision is more about including everyone rather than the highest number of votes. Having said that, I will point out that there was only 1 vote difference in the 21 most popular fandoms, apart from the clear winner, X-men! With the above fandoms, I believe everyone who voted will have at east ONE fandom to play in.
And if you didn't vote but something here inspires you to play, that's all to the good, too!
We will be gathering graphics over the weekend, so if you're helping me, I'll PM you shortly! And as long as everything is in place by Monday, we will begin August Rush on the 1st of August! Get your creative gears oiled! ;-)
[Edit: Apologies, Angel fans! I accidentally deleted the last fandom, which is Angel, when I was writing this post *headdesk* and didn't even notice till Erin pointed out to me that there was only five fandoms listed... I blame the lateness of the evening...]
