    There's no need for that comment, Delia97. No need at all. There's no reason to carry this grudge against the Supergirl character becuase she had more votes that some of the previous MIB choices from 15 or 14 polls back. I recommend you take another look at Colin's post he has up in this forum. It's those kind of comments that puts this poll in danger. So please, be more considerate.

    On a more lighter note, I'm glad to see Supergirl finally get her due. This win has been a long time coming and I'm glad to see all the fan shave stuck in there to the bitter end.

    Well, sorry for bringing up the supergirls been drawn question. I didn't know that it wasn't for the poll. Oh well, Vash will win next time he's up.

    You sure missed that line. You know no matter what we can't help but drool over what John draws and Im sorry you missed that praise for it. Even Supergirl will be an amazing work of art because this is John's art.

    I was making a joke but I guess you saw it as a bitter remark rather than a bitter joke. Gee. I guess it was kinda one of those "Niles" from the 'Nanny' (forgive for the television reference) things. Him and that chick-- Cici (spelled right?) always had those things. Did they kill each other over it? No.

    The only grudge I carry is the fact that Supergirl has gotten into what--- 7 of these polls? I bet there are people who would have liked to see a decent cycle through before seeing her in again--- but who am I to talk? I don't care what MIB she beat--- despite the fact that she herself didn't win in any particular poll against any MIBs. Did I hate the winner of those? No. We all still drool over the art. I don't have a vendetta against Colin. I know we got a John freebie--- John's just too darn good to us. I dont despise anyone here--- well-- maybe the chick on the other thread that straight out said "Elle sucks" (and worse) like 5 times in one post. No one can really get me to hate them---- unless they try really hard like that one poster did.

    It's no biggie. We all get ---argumentive--- and with a passion when it comes to a poll and I dont take offense. Heck--- if people got touchy over the presidential Elections--- we'd have a Civil war going.

    Sorry I managed to upset everyone so I guess I wont bother coming by here again because I just know I'll make a remark that people will despise me for.

    Just a little fact info here before I drop this for good. The reason why Supergirl is in these polls so frequently is becuase alot of people email her in as a request - and I mean ALOT. She is a very popular choice and TZ gets tonnes and tonnes and tonnes of requests to have her featured in the poll. There's a loyal fanbase for Supergirl out there, and they email us with their suggestion - Supergirl. I'm sure if more people emailed in for MIB characters, the exact same thing would happen.

    And I'm done with this.

    Darn, I've been away and missed the poll. Nevermind. Supergirl is always a favourite. I think i'd have voted for Jubilee though - always fun to vote for something fresh, and I always seemed to support thr underdog... :)

    I know--- I try but no one cares to listen even when Elle or someone DOES make it into a poll. I've pretty much given up on that.

    And I said I was sorry in my last post above--- but does it warrant this Private message? This one was sent to me from BARRY ALLEN:

    Hey, sorry I said sorry, barry. No need to be that way about it.

    storm1288 sent me a super nice PM and went on apologizing for saying something--- and I've yet to figure out what had been said lol. At least Storm is nice. We chatted on AOL IM and we know there's nothing harsh ever. It's all the heat of the poll--- but gee whiz, Barry. No need for THAT one.

    Hope we have one heck of a drawing at the start of the week because we've got a lot of bother to show for our poll--- but knowing John, It's totally gonna rule.

    I hope at least someone colors it for you guys like that Captain America one from a few polls back.

    wow.

    I'm happy and sad at the same time. I'm glad that Supergirl won, but I'm disappointed that the mods had to step in to remind everyone to calm down. I've been without the net this summer, so I mostly have no clue what's been going on with you guys, but I really hope the campaigning will cease. I've done it too, believe me, but the more we argue over who wins, the more we lose - respect for each other, for John and for ourselves. I'm sure things will turn around now, and I hope John will continue to honor us with his talent for as long as he possibly can. Toonzone is a special place. I'm glad to be here.

    My choice finally wins!

    And Delia, I would like to point out that I had intended to keep the matter private between us. That is why I Private Messaged you. As I understand, (correct me if I am mistaken,) isn't the posting of a private message without the other party's consent against the rules, or illegal? That's as bad as posting an email to a person who should not receive it, or leaving a tape recorder running in a room without letting people know, and continuing to tape without their consent. Evidence like that does not hold up in court because it is ill-gotten.

    I would also like to point out, beyond all the rules and questions of legality surrounding your quoting an intentionally private note, that you were the one who chose to bring it to the boards. Not me.

    I am sorry you all had to read that. I apologize for the thoughtlessness on both her behalf and on mine.

    Now let me continue to celebrate the fact that my choice won!! :bosko:

    Do you really think I care anymore Barry? I said Im not gonna be here next poll or ANY future poll and I found the fact that you sent me that PM to be REALLY poor of choice. Worse than any crack I could have come up with--- Espically the part at the end with "I, for one, will not be sorry to see you go. Enjoy your fantasy worlds in which MIB is popular."

    hey I KNOW Im gone totally now for this, But im not gonna leave toonzone and let you be like THAT to me. Sore Winner.

    If you're gonna be like that to ANYONE-- do it in public. No one likes hidden rudeness.

    Sorry for ALL of this now, Jim Harvey. I know i'm pretty much gone from all Toonzone for this but before I went I just wanted to bring to light how people really act. Im not always the only one at fault.

    Hope you guys dont punish everyone for this poll with delayed polls. They didn't deserve it.

    And sorry, John.

    Delia--


    While you have said some rather disparaging remarks in the past about Supergirl and her loyal fans, I am sorry to see you go before John was allowed to sketch Ellie or the MIB

    Nutbunnies! I really wanted to see Stitch when, I don't really care for Supergirl but still Delanys talent could turn me into a fanatic. I see her aided as some low-brow sidekick to boost popularity in the female and puberty stricken boy demographic XD; Anyway she is an okay character but I would have rather seen Stitch or even Gir win. At least both have a monumental fan art base for me to run too :D

    As far as I know, she's not.

    Anywho, let's just move onward and leave this past ugly business behind. There's really nothing else to say. Discussion on the voctor, etc can still continue of course.

    As for Stitch...who knows...maybe we'll see him again the future. I wouldn't be surprised :)

    Hold on there DB, campaigning is encouraged on this poll (just read rule #4 in Colin's introductory post). The problem is when arguments break out and people start complaining about poll choices or insulting characters (or worse, fellow posters). I hope it doesn't happen again but you can't just cease campaigning altogether. What would be the fun in that?

    Campaigning is allowed and enouraged. We've had some mighty creative campaigns pop up here that were fun and extremely convincing. But when it gets out of hands, and leads to bashing of the other choices, other posters, that's when we gotta step in and take measures. And campaigning is part of the fun. Even John likes that aspect of the poll!
