Similar to what we did at the end of 2009, 2010, and 2011, I have selected a few comments based on their thumb rating (sum of negative and positive votes) and placed them below. This year, by request, I have added a spot where readers can add their own suggestions to the poll. Because there is no way to allow for adding your own to the poll question automatically, this is going to be for selections only with actual voting occurring next Sunday (1/6/13). Hopefully this will eliminate the issues surrounding relying on thumbs voting, ok?
Top comments based on votes:
- NW Rochester Guy’s great photo caption for Apple Valley’s sign ordinance [+17]
Now that we have those laid out and you can vote to narrow the list to 3, I’d like you all to submit your suggestions for other comments which should be added to the voting list. I’m looking for any comment you deem worthy. Feel free to use the search function (it usually works pretty well even if the blurb doesn’t show the comment text–just click the link and see if you find it) or e-mail me and I’ll do some deep digging to find what you’re looking for. I’d need, at a minimum, something you remember about the comment. I’d prefer it be limited to a specific user but I can work with the prior.
Once you find the comment you wish to add to the voting for next week, post the link below and give it a cute little synopsis as I did above–that will make my life easier. Yes, I am getting over the flu but it’s 3:53 AM and I’m not sleepy. I’m sure I will be dead the rest of the week as I get back on track–this is NOT how I wanted to spend two weeks of my vacation.
So go ahead and vote on the top 10 comments based on rating to narrow them to 3 and then add your own if you see fit. If you have any questions go ahead and comment on below.
