The TONY POLLS are on hiatus until November, but I have many poll results to report between now and their return. Today, we're going to concentrate on questions I asked in May and July on what subjects you most enjoy me writing about in Tony's Online Tips. You were asked to rate these features on a scale of zero to five. For starters, here's what percentage of "five" votes each of the subjects received...
Some of the subjects I most enjoy writing about don't appear to be favorites of yours. I'll probably still write about them on occasion, but I'll work on making such columns more interesting. Or tie them into what big events is going down at DC or Marvel.
"Candy's role in the Multiverse..."
Looking at the individual results, I decided to count scores three and up as yea votes and any under three as nay votes. Here's how that played out:
What am I going to do with these results? Well, I'll surely be guided by them to some extent...and I also invite your further comments on the results and the subjects they address. If changes come, you'll see them when I resume writing full-size columns next month. Until then...
Feel free to submit your own Tony Polls questions for when the feature returns in November. Most useful to me would be questions that come complete with choices. Our set-up allows up to 20 choices for any questions.
You can send your submissions to me at:
Thanks for spending a part of your day with me. I'll be back next week with more stuff.
ZERO: Burn your money before buying any comic receiving this rating. It doesn't *necessarily* mean there's absolutely nothing of value here - though it *could* - but whatever value it might possess shrinks into insignificance before its overall awfulness.
ONE: Buy something else. Maybe I found something which wasn't completely dreadful in the item, but not enough for me to recommend it when there are better comics available. I only want what's best for you, my children.
TWO: Basic judgment call. I found some value, but not enough to recommend it. My review should give you enough info to decide if you want to take a chance on it. Are you feeling lucky today, punk? Well, are you?
THREE: This denotes something I find perfectly respectable. There are better books out there, but I wouldn't regret buying this item. Based on my review, you should be able to determine if it's of interest to you. Let the Force guide you.
FOUR: I recommend anything earning this rating. Unless you don't like the genre, subject matter, or past work of the creators, I believe you'll enjoy this item. Isn't it uncanny how I can look right into your soul that way?
FIVE: Anything getting this rating is among the best comicdom has to offer. You should buy/read this, even if the genre/subject matter doesn't appeal to you. It's for your own good. Me, I live for comics and books this good...but not in a pathetic "Comic-Book Guy" sort of way.
