Well, the results have been tallied, and it looks like Brandon Sanderson has a vote of confidence from a good chunk of the WoT fans out there. I find that extremely surprizing for, though I like Sanderson and consider him one of the bright new voices in the genre, I feel that his style and the scope of his works are a world away from Jordan's. And hence, I wonder if he can pull this off. We'll have to wait and see. . . The question was:
Given the divergence in their styles and the scope of their respective series, and given the fact that Jordan only wrote about 50,000 words before passing away, do you believe that Brandon Sanderson can make A MEMORY OF LIGHT as good as it should be?

- Yes: I think that Jordan and Sanderson's styles will mesh rather well, and I'm confident that by following RJ's own notes and with Harriet's supervision Sanderson will pull this off. (283 votes, 39%)
- Maybe: I don't believe it will be anywhere near as good as if Jordan had written it, but I'm willing to give Sanderson the benefit of the doubt. I just want to know how it all ends... (228 votes, 31%)
- No: I smell another Dune debacle in the making. (41 votes, 5%)
- I've given up on The Wheel of Time ages ago and couldn't care less... (163 votes, 22%)
