Poll: General Fund for September 2016 Half-Price Sale

The general fund currently contains $18.75.  The half-price sale is sold out, so you can put this toward open epics.  Everyone is eligible to vote in this poll.  I will keep it open until at least Tuesday midday.  If there's a clear answer then, I'll close it.  If not, I may leave it open a while longer.
