Weekly poll
The Weekly poll is a poll every Saturday asking the community what they think about fallout from guns to characters and music to DLC it’s all in the poll! Also got any ideas? Tell me on my talk page.

Looks like it's that time of week again folks; time for the Weekly Saturday Polls!

It's Yes-Man here again, like last week. And the week before that. And the week before that... anyway. I've been feeling a bit under the weather recently. You know, common cold. They call it common but I find I only get it once a year or so... speaking of which, they can cure deadly diseases but they can't cure a cold. Ridiculous, am I right? Anyway, what do I usually talk about before the polls? Give me a suggestion or something, folks, because I'm really at a loss for words and I'm sure this is awkward for all of us. If you think you know what the people want to hear before the poll, just tell me on my talk page... otherwise I'll bore you with the details of my week.

Last Week's Results

For those of you who didn't fall asleep from boredom after my riveting story about the common cold, take a look at last week's results. We were asked the question What is your favourite Fallout series faction?

The results are as follows:

  • In third place are the Followers of the Apocalypse with 21 votes! I could never dig the punk rock hairstyles, personally.
  • In joint second place are the NCR and the Enclave, both with 28 votes! I wonder, which is the greater evil...?
  • And in first place with a staggering 53 votes are the one and only Brotherhood of Steel! Who else saw that coming from a mile away?

Special thanks to the one and only J for helping me with the results. Keep up the amazing edits, man. Only 20,000 more to go and you've reached 100,000!

Moving on, this week we've got two polls. That's right, I'm spoiling you with choice. I got a great suggestion from Stars and Stripes Forever, but I already had a poll idea in mind. So I've decided to use both questions this week. You know those arguments about "Who's faster, the Flash or Superman", and so forth. Well, I got something along those lines for you this week. Drumroll please...

Poll:Which player character would win in a fight

And here's the second poll for you. This is less opinion, more personal experience (also gives me a chance to experiment with the alternate poll system). Without further ado...

Which Fallout: New Vegas skill did you level up to 100 first?

The poll was created at 23:03 on May 25, 2012, and so far 493 people voted.

There you go. Tell us which player character would win in a fight, and also tell us what skill you levelled up to 100 first. I always level up speech first; I find it one of the most useful skills in the game, other than lockpick and science. Now, I need to stress something. Listen up, because this stuff's important:

When voting on which player character would win, base it on your player character. However, that does not mean that the Lone Wanderer would win because he has Liberty Prime, nor does it mean that the Chosen One would win because he has a Gauss Rifle and Enclave armour. I want to know which character you thought achieved the greatest feats in their game, and which of your characters do you think is the most capable in a fight. Personally I'd have to go with the Courier, considering he can take down three armies and seize control of Vegas (at least, in my Independent playthrough).

Now a few things to wrap up until next week. First off I'd like to say thank you to a certain anonymous user who left a lovely message on my talk page. I certainly will keep fighting the good fight, thanks for your message. Also, I'd like to get some feedback on the polls; specifically if you prefer my poll system or MysteryStranger's. It has become apparent that although my poll format is more aesthetically pleasing, it's prone to many glitches (some of which I've experienced myself). And overall I'd like to know if you're enjoying the polls and if there's anything you'd like me to add or remove.

Also, does anyone actually read what I write after the poll? Just curious...

Until next week, have fun everyone. If you have any crazy ideas for a fun poll, just tell me about it on my talk page, or catch me in chat. I'll be here every Saturday so be patient!
