I was curious and decided to count up the number of original vs. licensed suggestions in this thread. I tried not to count suggestions twice, and "upvotes" of suggestions were not counted. I will say that there was some ambiguity here and there (e.g., travel the country vs. travel the world, funfair vs. amusement park, etc.). Whatever. I wasn't very detailed about it, so take this count with a grain of salt.

Original Theme suggestions: 65
Licensed Theme suggestions: 42
Sequel of an original suggestions: 3

Kind of interesting results. The fact that ~40% of all suggestions in a thread asking for original themes were actually licensed is very telling. As some one else mentioned, maybe the demand for original themes isn't as high as we think it is.

Quoted from Matt_Rasmussen:

I'm not sure that people misunderstanding the original question equates to an accurate analysis like you're doing. But interesting to think about anyway.

Good point. As a control, you should start a thread asking for licensed themes and ill count how many mistaken original themes we get. My guess is not many.

Quoted from RobT:

The whole point is that even if people said "yes" to the poll (and they would), many of them don't even know what that means...as shown by this very thread.
