12 is the maximum limit for polls.Originally Posted by Erfael
Yes, but you're essentially duplicating the effort that's already done by the poll.Nobody is making people read the books if their book doesn't get picked, so all of this seconding and thirding is just another way to make sure that more than one person is interested in reading a book before it goes to poll.
Like I said, I used to do this too. Here's an example of a months nominee being run through the process
(unfortunantly, we ended up with Enders Game one of the more over-rated books in the history of science fiction. )
Now it helps that the poll option was set to 24 votes, and we did allow multiple votes (akin to "seconding" and "thirding" the nominations.)
