NAME THE LISSAVERSE SUGGESTIONS
Here is the final* list of suggestions made for the Lissaverse. Many thanks to those who've submitted their suggestions, and good luck!
*Please note that I received a last-minute submission yesterday, and one of the suggestions was a duplicate. I have given them until tomorrow to submit a replacement.
Now's the time to submit your votes. You can vote for up to three suggestions. You're allowed to vote for your own, but I hope you vote for someone else's, too, otherwise this could be a really short (and weird) giveaway. You have until December 1, 2012, to submit your votes. Just send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you've entered and don't see your suggestion on the following list, let me know by posting here or sending me an email. I'll make corrections post-haste J
