I thought the shortlist choosing was going to be done by more than one person... but anyway.... It could always be combined...

Just putting this out there but this all seems like a lot of effort for what amount to the title of a thread....

Having clever thread names is what TOG is all about, and then you have to put some effort into it

Essentially just an idea to generate a bit of forum interest for those who aren't frequently here and ideas outside of the usual "Hints and Tips" title - although so far it seems a classic type title has the lead. It's a thread title and a copy of the game (most likely to gift to a friend I imagine) involved, so by no means high stakes. Hence, while I considered whether I should set up the poll externally so the couple of non-TOG'ers could vote (when it was identified as an issue), I decided to just remain with things here. Possibly go that route and take the learnings onto the next time we do something along the lines of vote / competition.

Non-TOG players could still post in here indicating they can't vote along with their preference if they wish. We can manually add them on at the end.

And so, the winning entry is "Minecrafting 101", suggested by DaedalusAlpha.

I've sent a pm in regards to claiming the prize.
