I've finally typed out the bios for exactly 800 nominees for the top 100 most influential people in history. Please respond to the poll. 

Here's the instructions once I add you to the spreadsheet:

1. Your column will automatically have the default list filled in, which means all you have to do is delete the "1" from those who want to replace on this default list. You will then put a "1" in your column for the replacement. The total of "1"s in your column will need to equal 100. It should auto-calculate that number. 

2. You'll let me know in this thread when you've finished your ranking. 

3. When we are all done, we will put the top 100 vote-getters in order. 

I also ask that anyone who does not partake in the ranking refrain from criticizing the result. 

Here's the default top 100 based on an average of expert lists: 

1 Jesus
2 Muhammad

I'm done, I suppose. It's not perfect, but reducing 800 to 100 is never going to be perfect.

Yeah, for me, there were about 75-80 clear top 100. I removed about 25 to 20 and found replacements, although I'd say #s 75-150 (if I did rank up to 150) could all fluctuate in and out of the top 100 for me, depending on the week.

Yeah, I think I got down to 71 after removing people from the template, and then I scrolled, and scrolled, and scrolled, like "there's nobody I want to add...." but there were... just mostly at the very bottom, as luck would have it, heh.

@vcczar How are ties going to be broken, since I think it's fair to assume everyone is going to select Jesus and number of others in common? Also, about to pm you my gmail 

i'll have polls. So at some point we might see, "Who has been more influential? Jesus or Muhammad?"

@vcczar Before I answer, what sort of spreadsheet program are you using, and is having the software on my computer necessary to do this project? I believe the only such software I have is on my work computer, and it's Government-issued.

You just have to be able to access google sheets.
