HELLO, Poll-followers and fans galore, this is Gunner, and WELCOME! One and all, to the one-year anniversary of me as the Pollmaster. This edition of the Saturday Polls is brought to you by me. It only took a year of saving up, but I can finally sponsor my own Polls. Another victory for the Pollmasters of the world, today.
The way I'm gonna split up the Polls today is gonna be a bit unorthodox, you could say. I'm not gonna type anything up here, today. I'm gonna put the results in, then I'm gonna do your 7 Polls (as promised). Then I'm gonna put a little something-something below the Polls as my goodbye. Thanks for sticking around for a year with me.
"Question #1, what pre-War companies would you like to see more prevalent in future games?"
49 of you just don't care anymore. You're a modern Phil Collins.
50 people wanna see Chryslus Motors more prevalent in future games. They see me rollin', they hatin', they hopin' that they can catch me ridin' dirty. And by dirty, I mean irradiated as Hell.
134 people wanna see Poseidon Energy more prevalent in Fallout 4 or above. With the energy of Poseidon and the brains of Pandora.
"Question #2, which of these animals would win in a free-for-all?"
18 people think the Cazador would win. The tarantula hawk and something else... A FEARSOME PREDATOR.
71 people think the Super mutant overlord would win. Vault 87 just created the biggest, scariest, stinkiest monsters, didn't they?
180 people think the good ol' Deathclaw would win. Fun Fact: The Grim Reaper was once a Deathclaw, but they deemed him too deadly.
"Question #3, do you think animals will ever revert back to normal size?"
17 people just don't care. Dare I make the Phil Collins joke again?
67 people say "maybe". Maybe you could say maybe, but then again, maybe you could say yes. What say you, hm?
203 people say HELLLLLLLLLLL no. Or just no. I'm a drama queen, remember.
And now, for the moment you've all been waiting for. SEVEN, that's right, NOT ONE, NOT TWO, BUT SEVEN POLLS. Go, my friends, and prosper.
I'll put a bonus Poll in, but hold that thought for the minute.
This is it, guys. After these Polls, I'm handing them over to BrandonFox, who has been a great help to me, so please treat him as great as you guys have treated me.
I'd just like to say that this has been a hell of a year. I've lost some friends, I've gained some, and a lot has gone down. I started being active around June of last year, and I gained the Polls five months after that.
I don't really know how to make this next part relevant to the before, but I feel like this is something I wanna include. I used to be really depressed, since before I ever started doing the Polls, since before I ever started being active on here. I've been depressed nearly ever since my Mom died when I was 8 years old, due to a drunk driver ramming her car, and I never really felt the same since. But I'd like to say one thing, it wasn't therapists that helped me, it wasn't medication, it was Nukapedia, and the people that have been here. There are some great people here, and I'd like to name a few in particular that I'm really happy to call my friends. Eden, you're a great guy who I could always relate to. Keep it real, and keep it Enclave. Aleks, in recent days, I always knew I could come to you if I had something. Thanks for putting up with me, man. Harley, while you aren't as active as you used to be, you've also been very nice to me on and off the wiki. Thank you very much. And finally, Ever, you've been around with me since the beginning. Thanks for being there with me all the time. You're also really good at Halo (and we need to play sometime!).
But please don't take these special mentions as my only friends on here, everybody in chat, who comes in day-in and day-out, and everybody here on the Polls, thank you very much for coming around and talking to me and being friendly. I really appreciate it.
So I guess my only real advice here, what I took from my depression, is that you should never submit to futile thoughts. Never give up on your dreams, guys. Never give up hope. If you ever hit a rock in your life, I know there are great people out there like I've found on here, and they'll help you through it.
Another thing I always took relatability and inspiration from was music, so I'd like to share some of my favorite songs with you.
At this point, you should know I'm an Eminem fan, so here's a great song that's not only relatable (in my opinion), but also moving and uplifting.
And as a second song, if you're into some more rock-n-roll type stuff, is a heavier band named Stick To Your Guns. I met the singer of this band, and he's one of the nicest people you'll ever meet, and I always take inspiration from this song in particular.
Again, guys, my love for you all is infinite for coming around each week and voting and the continuing support has been almost too much for me to handle. So I know I'm gonna miss you all, but I'd like one last bonus Poll.
This is DG, signing off, and I'll see you all on Nukapedia.
