Kinda jumping to conclusions there. This poll wasn't about what town has better people. It's about what town is better. There's a ton of factors which go into that.

Anyway, just doing Hartford again:
South Windsor
Glastonbury
Farmington

I like the idea of this thread, but there needs to be a better system, something along the lines of a bracket or atleast a better matchup of towns and cities.

I wouldn't mind doing it myself, but, I don't have the time to look up and verify everything currently. :/

OK I am not sure if you understand right. Round 3 is for Fairfield, New Haven, Litchfield, and Hartford COunties. After that they will have the final round.

Since Middlesex, New London, Tolland, and Willington Counties are smaller I had to make the final round this round. The reason I put the same town multiple times is because I am trying to determine first, second, third, and fourth place. If you read everything you should understand.
I know, but the approach is a lost cause. It's not fair to the towns that were already defeated by Round 3. So whatever the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place winners are is pretty much meaningless.

Hey Everyone, the deadline is extended till friday, may 9, 2014 (1:00pm CT time). I am sorry but there has been a huge family emergency that I had to take care of, so that means I couldn't do this for 3 days. This was something I needed full concentration on. So today I will PM the people who didn't vote in this round today, and we can shoot for a deadline on Friday when I said.

I hope you understand all of you who are waiting, but this is a big family emergency that I had to take care of.

Basically, it makes no sense.

Perhaps because Fairfield is more open to newcomers and is more affordable and has some real shopping. Heck, I could never afford a home in Greenwich, but Fairfield is more possible for me. It's a more well rounded town IMO. Greenwich is nice too though.
