Tropico Expansion Poll Results
ę on: October 06, 2001, 09:44:06 Ľ by Junta_Joe
First, some credit where credit is due:
*A. Mueller - who's German Tropico site held a parallel vote to increase our vote totals. His poll had more voters than our site did!
*Tish - Who assisted me in many ways and promoted the poll tirelessly.
*Ms. Beale - Whose 12th grade stats class play tested the game (All in the name of research) and helped me come up with poll parameters to ensure a fair vote. Her 4 students were also allowed to vote.
Be sure to give these folks a round of applause when you comment. This was a co-operative effort, not a one man show.Poll Result Tallies

37 others recieved 1 or 2 votes.Removal Vote Results
Voodoo priests was the overwhelming loser with 13 votes. The ability to repel invasions garnered 5 votes. Both were removed and will not be submitted to Poptop. There were 7 others with 3 votes. I decided not to gut the list to make that 3rd pick. To pick one at random felt presumtuous.Vote Notes
I was required to "interperate" about seven votes. Things like nude beaches were rolled into more tourist attractions, etc. There were about 8 "lost" votes based on write-ins or silliness. The best few write-ins were added to the list, but were not counted in the polling. I felt that was a fair compromise. I truly wish more of you had expressed your suggestions during the preliminary period.*
= Teamsters, Laborers & Dockworkers
Although I have to say I'm a little blue that voodoo priests didn't make it. ... Actually I thought voodoo priest were kinda cool too. I see that comment all the time when the island peons can't make it to the clinics. They have a distinctive island flavor.
