OK, I will most likely be closing the vote tomorrow, so if you haven't voted and want to, I suggest doing it sooner, rather than later.

One vote is closed, and a new one is opened:

How many distinct 'waves of settlement' have the Preservers set down?

Basically, the Preservers most likely took people and other lifeforms in waves or phases, with significant time gaps in-between. Post the number of such waves that you prefer, or a range, like '5 to 20' or 'more than a dozen, but less than a hundred.' If there isn't a clear consensus, I'll do a second vote, based on the most popular suggestions, if possible. If everyone wants wildly different numbers or ranges, I'll figure something else out.

EDIT: The consensus seems to be that there are no distinct 'waves,' just life being moved at various points.

Either one wave, or too many to really count.

Waves? What do you mean waves? They started, it picked up for a while, then it slowed and eventually stopped.

OK, I'm thinking that I'll be closing this vote tomorrow, unless I get sick again (or otherwise distracted). So far, it looks like there are no distinct 'waves,' just life being moved at various points.

How many different groups of Preservers have there been?

Were the Preservers members of a single species, or part of an alliance, or is 'Preserver' perhaps a name that applies to several groups, possibly with different motivations and levels of technology? Were some of the later Preservers descended from beings taken from Earth in earlier times? With the very long time span involved (3 million years!), the Preservers being a single group seems a bit less plausible.

Please include the number when you vote.

1. A single species and group, the whole way through.

2. The same alliance, with multiple species involved, but without any uplifted races.

3. The same alliance, with multiple species involved, including uplifted races.

4. A few different groups over time, less than ten.

5. Between ten and a hundred different groups, possibly overlapping.

6. Between a hundred and a thousand different groups, possibly overlapping.

7. More than a thousand different groups, possibly overlapping.


EDIT: OK, the consensus is 'a single, multi-species alliance of time travelers, that does not include uplifted races.'

^ My vote. Keep the Preservers both Ancient and No Longer On the TL Scale.
