where does the wah pedal go?

These polls seem to spark pretty good discussion so here is one I've never been able to figure out for myself. I have no idea where the wah pedal should go. It sounds different in different in places. I'll try to think of as many options as I can.

Only thing i'd put in front is a volume pedal.
Even that is subjective.

Some guys like to put them after the fuzz. I don't. I put it right in front of my fuzz face. I get the same thing Jimi did, ever notice how when he used the wah and fuzz face together he would use it more or less as a treble boost? That's how I use it.

I put it right up front, i like to wah the tone before it gets changed by other effects. Sounds better to my ears.

I have mine after the Noise Gate and Tuner, but before the True Bypass Looper (TBL). Everything else hangs off of the TBL, except the Volume Pedal which comes after the TBL.
I heard they's a man there pays folks money to sing into a can.

My tuner (in a true bypass switcher) comes before everything, then generally the wah, but I've noticed that every fuzz I've tried doesn't like to be after a buffer, so they usually go directly between the tb switcher and the wah.
