The great-ish Mongrel 20k game: Game choice thread.

It's the grim dark future where Mongrel has been allowed to surpass 20k posts (you think I'm gonna wait till 40,000 to milk this joke?), so as mentioned, I'm gonna run a game if there's interest in either of the options.

1) brobdingnagian Dumb Internet Scavenger Hunt. I put up a list of maybe a dozen Bronto-themed targets (i.e. "An image of a fish head wearing slacks, that isn't R^2s avatar or something from Jackbox") and everyone has say, two weeks or so to compile submissions. The key here is that it's not a race - everyone gets plenty of time. Once we have everyone's submissions we can then do a Friday-style vote-off to decide who found the most awesome of each target.

2) Choose Your Own Mongrel Adventure. Okay, this is a lot shakier, but basically I would just start fucking, I dunno, telling a story and ending each post with a choice you guys vote on. This could go anywhere, I really have no clue at all - some real Airtight Garage shit. Only thing is I dunno how to do this all in one thread? Can you reset/edit a first-post poll repeatedly to have new questions and somehow clear existing votes? Can you delete a poll and restart it? I feel like in the past we've just had new threads for every poll in polling games and that would make something like a story a gigantic PITA to follow. So if we do this one, I need a hand working out the logistics, but I can't imagine there's NO way to make this work.

Neither of these are amazing, IMO, but I was trying to think of something novel which could still work. I am 100% not going to be hurt if the response here ends up being mostly "eh."

So what's the best way to do the choice voting while still keeping the story in one thread? Do we have the poll technology?

Set up the poll the first time. After you get your results, delete the poll entirely and then edit in a new one. If you just edit the poll to new choices, it will retain the old votes.
