Yeah, very interesting.

Now, anymore final thoughts? Like, anyone who would like to thank me for starting such a daunting topic. I really want to hear some final thoughts on this. Even though this was just some poll and NOT a tourney. ;)

I think the results are pretty typical for the most part. The #1 pair for the SoK is not surprising at all. I mean a pair with Atocha, Catherine the Great, and Annie Taylor will get a love of love. Also, episodes like Atahualpa and Belshazzar are not bad at all.

I am kind of surprise that Blue-Purple got the highest ranking. I thought that would go with Red-Green or Green-Silver. But that is not a bad thing, because it was both a great pairing and had some great episodes too.

These are my top 3 favorite pairings:

 :jaguars2:  :monkeys2:
 :barracudas2:  :parrots2:
 :monkeys2:  :snakes2:

And no surprise at the bottom either. I hate  :jaguars2:  :snakes2: because of how many crappy episodes it has. That is also the ugliest pairing on the show.  :oops:

And thanks for creating this topic. It was both fun and an original idea. And a lot of people voted in it too, so it was a nice change of pace.

You do realize the pair for Red-Blue-Green-Purple got the most votes, right? I think you need to go back and look at the chart. And I personally hated both Red/Green and Green/Silver. Very ugly and boring colors together. I honestly think Red/Green is overrated AND got ranked too high. And Blue/Purple getting a high ranking was not surprising at all. Those colors looked beautiful together and there's a reason it's my favorite pair ever.

And I'm glad this poll is over. I was gonna start a "Rate the temple layout" poll (like, rate the S1L1, S1L2 temple), but now I don't know. I don't think anyone would like it, and this place has been completely dead lately. I don't know, what do you think? =/

Well, the activity seems to come and go. It is hard to tell how many people will vote in it or not. Just a couple of weeks ago, these threads were getting many votes. I think it is a good idea, but you're right it is a little dead on this forum right now. But I do notice that certain people have always been voting in these threads as of late: Me, you, RJF, TSM, and Brent. And Viper does too, but he has not been on a few days.

It is always something you can create down the road when it picks up again. Believe me, it will happen again. ;) But I like the idea and I am sure the votes will show how much the temple has changed between the first three seasons. ;)

Yeah, this thread (and even more so my rooms thread) got A LOT of activity at the beginning. But now the activity has been really dwindling down lately, and it gets a little boring seeing just a mere 4 votes in every poll. Either way, I'll definitely start the topic somewhere down the road. Just like you were gonna start a "Rate the Temple Games" thread once the activity picks up again. But I'm gonna hold off on starting it for now. And I'll wait until we get more voters, and focus more on my rooms thread in the meantime. ;)

EDIT: And I deleted the poll too. Since there's really no point in keeping it up now that we've covered everything. I did the very same thing in the moat topic, so I figured it would be appropriate. ;)

I definitely enjoyed this topic. It was something different. Wouldn't mind revisiting it one day to see if anything changes. Thanks for creating it, PPF

I would love to revisit this topic one day. To see if anything changes. Just like we're doing with the rooms topic right now. I mean, I know this was just a mere poll, and not a tourney, but hey, polls can be just as interesting and fun, right? ;)

I like the idea of revisiting certain polls again. Our opinions change overtime and it is also nice to see different people vote too. That is something you can definitely do down the road. I was thinking about doing the same thing with the "Rate the Legends Episode" thread where we rated every episode. I felt that a lot of the episodes in that thread didn't get a lot of votes (most of them only got 3 votes), so I think that is something that can revisited somewhere down the line.  ;)

And while we're on the subject of reviving old polls, I was thinking of rehashing the "Rate the wins" topic. I mean, it's been over a year since we've touched that thread, and again, it would be interesting to see how much our opinions have changed. And with only a mere 32 wins on the show, it wouldn't take long at all. Just like the rooms thread with 34 days, the wins thread would only take 32 days. Would that be an interesting thing to rehash again? I think so, since this is about wins after all. ;)

That would definitely be interesting to revisit. Especially since a lot of people are more willing to talk about and vote for the wins.

Then I'll start that poll later. And give you credit for it. Like I did with the rooms thread. I'm sure it will get a good number of votes. Since like I said, this IS about wins, and a temple run is the most vital part of the show. ;)
