    Like I said, I'm not saying you are making this up, but what I am saying is that I had no knowledge of this and the last time I was aware of any downtime was ages ago.

    I had hoped there would be a World Cup for Dynasty and Knots Landing too. And after that a World Cup for all the prime time soaps (don't know what that theme should be: cliffhangers? characters?)
    In other words: I want it all!

    I like to run the World Cup twice a year so people don't get bored with the game. Last year we did Falcon Crest characters and Falcon Crest cliffhangers and so far this year we have done Dallas characters so I'll do one more game this year.

    If the vote goes for all prime time soaps, I will change the voting rules slightly to avoid fans of one particular soap just voting for characters from that show so one soap's characters won't dominate the game.

    I will still do characters from the individual soaps another time and because of the random nature of the draw for the World Cup, votes in one game are not a good predictor for how votes will go in another game.

    Whichever way the poll goes for the next game, I hope to eventually do the following World Cups:
    • Dynasty Characters
    • Knots Landing Characters
    • All 80s/90s Prime Time Soap Characters (including Dallas, Knots Landing, Falcon Crest, Flamingo Road, Dynasty and I might even include a couple from Return To Eden, depending on numbers). This will be a bigger game to include enough characters from each of the soaps and so will run for a longer time.
    • All 80s/90s Prime Time Soap Cliffhangers
    • The soaps themselves (daytime, prime time, UK, US and Australian soaps from different eras) battling against each other
    That will take us up to the end of 2020! After that, if there's still interest, I might do cliffhangers of the other soaps and characters from UK soaps and any other themes I think of or that are suggested to me.

    So @Willie Oleson, you can have it all but maybe not in the order you wanted, depending on how the vote goes.
