And voting for the November POTM is over. As a special treat for this set of winners, I asked Patapon to make the badges for this month. Please be sure to thank her.

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who nominated a post or voted for one. Thirty-one votes is an excellent turnout that I'm quite gratified to see:

Often a runner-up, Kurogasa earned twelve votes to take first place. This time, he has earned his first POTM for his take on Yuhabach's attempt to recruit Aizen to his cause, as told from Aizen's perspective. Kurogasa is now the second winner to be chosen by administrative prerogative, when Belias voted in order to break a tie.

This Haschwalth badge features a coloring by Ryin:



In second place, we have BlitzKriegKing, who for most of the voting was neck and neck with Kurogasa. This is BKK's first time in the top three. He earned eleven votes for his starter post in the "Positive Reinforcement" thread, which encouraged members to share what they think Kubo has done well. He has earned the right to wear this badge outside a spoiler for one year, in addition to any signature.

This Askin badge features a coloring by Starky:



Rounding out the top three is Willster328, who explained Uryuu's abilities and what makes the young man different. This time, he edged me out to garner nine votes. He has earned this badge, featuring a coloring by Ryin:

- - - Updated - - -

And the deadline for voting has passed. :elmo For the first time, everyone who was nominated will be receiving a badge. :uhuh

In first place, with an impressive thirteen votes, is The Outlier. He has been nominated frequently for thought-provoking poems and analyses of characters and other aspects of Bleach. This time, he impressed readers with his insights into Aizen and his abilities. Here is his badge:



In second place is vine, who received five votes for his post in the crack theories section exploring the conflict between the Quincy and the Shinigami. This is his badge:



And in a three-way tie for third place, we have the following posts, which each received four votes:

Oreramar's crack theory on Aizen being the Soul King
Hasanalshaikh767 on the Wolf of Wall Street
Caelestis on how Bach can take down the strongest of Shinigami

They have earned this badge:

Voting for the February POTM has started. We have 18 posts this time, so there's plenty of good reading.

Please make sure to vote only for the posts you truly think are the best of the best.

Good luck to all nominees. Badges are ready. :elmo

Voting will end at 11:59 PM CST on 11 March.

Only three more days to get your votes in. So far, 13 people have voted, but we have ties for second and third place. I'm not sure anyone wants to win third place with two votes, so please be sure to vote before the deadline.

Badges are ready, and I think you'll like them. :elmo

One more day to vote. I'm gratified to see that 23 members have already voted. Here's how the voting landscape looks thus far:

If things stay the same, B. Haddrell is primed to win her second POTM with 10 votes for her comparison of Uryuu to Avatar's Zuko. I was intrigued by the concept when she asked me about it, and it seems many of you are just as intrigued.

In a very close second place is Suharu, whose observations about the difficulty of correctly translating Japanese text have resonated with nine voters. She has been in first place for much of the voting, but she could still end up winning this.

And tied for third place with six votes right now are three worthy nominees:
Suharu appears once again, this time for her thoughts about interpreting dialogue in Bleach.
Lortastic, meanwhile, tries to balance the positive and negative aspects in Bleach.
And perennial nominee NeoPlatonist is back with his thoughtful review of Bleach chapter 617.

But don't count out these posts, who all have five votes and could end up receiving more:

The Outlier's chapter review of Bleach 614
Kurogasa on Ukitake's importance to the Bleachverse
Pseudo-Aizen on Shinigami having a piece of Bach's Soul

Good luck to everyone! May the most deserving posts win. :elmo

I'm going to close the voting now. :eek: Please be sure to thank Ryin, who did all the colorings of the Royal Guard members for this month's badges.

Thanks to all 26 members who voted. The race was close and exciting, with many worthy nominees this time around. Let's present the badges:

Previous third-place winner Suharu has just won her first POTM. She earned 12 votes for sharing her thoughts about the difficulties in translating Japanese manga to English. She has earned this badge and will enjoy all the perks that come with being a POTM winner:



B. Haddrell adds to her impressive collection of POTM badges to take second place. Her post showing parallels between Bleach's Uryuu and Avatar's Zuko earned ten votes. She has earned this badge:



In third place, with eight votes, is PSEUDO-AIZEN. He has earned his first POTM badge for his hypothesis that all Shinigami have a fragment of Yuhabach's soul. He may wear this badge:



Congratulations to all badge recipients and nominees, and a big THANK YOU to everyone who nominated or voted for a post.
