Default Stupid polls...

Is it me, or are people making a poll about just about everything?

I mean polls are all well and good, but when you get polls like "is the emperor dead?" or "what should I add to this army?" you've got to wonder if polls should be disallowed...

Maybe this is because the problem has not arisen before. However, there is a reason EO made polls a "Global Mod Only" option...

Kais, do us all a favour and think before posting!

EO stopped polls because people were making stupid polls, and there were endless repetitions of "Which Chapter is da best!?!?!?!11?" and similar. In the end, they stopped it completely.

Thus far, I have seen three that were made needlessly (one by you, and which was subsequently removed). However, it is the nature of the others that concerns me... they would be far better done as a normal post, not a poll.

A simple memo saying not to make a poll unless you feel it absolutely neccessary would suffice, as it saves on the misuse of a button function.

We haven't seen any polls repeated time and time again, so disallowing polls is not needed yet. Besides, only because theres been an increase in polls doesn't mean that thats a bad thing!

I agree really it is down to personal opinnion so i think all polls should be kept ....

Unless they r inactive...

Although some people may find this title provocative (such as Kais)...
- but not myself.

at least we can type and spell here and dont need endless repetition of !!?and1's.. i think polls are good, as long as there is some chance that theyre not one sided ones like the one on krootox as the worst tau unit..

Hmm....Polls are only annoying when, as Farserr Tyross said, they are repetitive. I will be keeping an eye out for any stupid polls in the future.
Because this topic has already started a mini-flame-war, it'd be safer if I locked this topic with no more discussion.
