Do you think members should be allowed to create polls?

Problem is that general chat could possibly be absolutely spammed with them.

So what do you think? :)

Does this count as a poll? :p

I do think that it would proabally be better for members to make polls..

Definitily not, the gen chat would be filled with "What colour is best" polls. I think it's fine as it is.

Yes, but...

It would be a 24/7 spam-fest :p

Yes, I do think it would be fine for members to be able to create polls. We create them anyway. A poll is just a question really, with multiple choice answers. This would just be making them 'official' and, in my opinion, a little bit tidier. Don't worry about the forum being filled with them. It's not necessarily a bad thing. It's only spam when you're creating a poll for the sake of it. If you have a question with several answers, you can create a poll. If you don't have a topic without a 'multiple choice question', then you create a normal thread.

No, it would be excessive/annoying spam.

i think we should be given the powers for certain occasions like TRF Idol (that would have made life easier)

How about... maybe a board dedicated to polls?

Or maybe members can create polls but can only make one per week? :)

That's an idea. Maybe not one per week, but something along those lines. I don't make threads very often anyway, and I can't imagine I'd make polls that often.

No chance. Every other post would be a poll, you know how some folk are here. They'd see the "Post Poll With Post" button and simply wouldn't be able to resist. Clicky-clicky.

Tell you what, why don't you create a poll about it! :vlol: :p

I reckon you should be allowed to create polls if you ask first, like make a thread in Gen Chat, see what members think, and wait until a mod replies to make a decision! IMPO.

Isn't that kind of the system already? :confused:

Tlr has a point... if I could make polls there would be hundreds of them, some of them stupid :p

Poll: What is the best poll that has been made in the last 20 minuites? :pi:

More mods will be needed. Do you want to do it :D

Haha, tlr, looks like by the end of the year you'll have yourself over 50 mods. :p

On the other hand I like the idea of polls being something special, something that only pops up every now and again for important (or important-ish) reasons, only by moderators and such. If everyone could post them and if every other thread was one, they would lose their 'special-ness'.

Pipolinne
17-04-06, 21:58
Not really! We already have some stupid threads/posts...if polls were available for all :tea:...

Nice pic of Kurtis you found there, Tlr :D!

And are you going to make sure people make just one a week? You will be bored fast moderating polls ,or do you mean a software update? More work either way :D

There'd be a system which means you can't post more than one poll a week; it just won't let you. But it's not going to happen anyway, so... :p

I believe polls come out when an interesting/urgent/or even funny ( like if we prefer natural orange juice or not :D) subject appears. I'm not imagining all members posting polls with those characteristics everyday and quite sincerly I believe it would become boring in a while, driving our attention from really pertinent threads.

Or just allow Titanium to make polls, i am sure it wont be abused :D

jarhead
17-04-06, 22:11
shoudl we make a poll on this subject :D. i think it would be spamming to the limits and that the mods create polls now and again which is good.

xMiSsCrOfTx
17-04-06, 22:12
Titanium can be the Poll Person! :D

jarhead
17-04-06, 22:13
if you said to someone round here that there the 'pole person' you woulds seriously get laughed at. but i think it would be good if the mods allowed other members powers. :mis:

*Imagines polls like "Do you think Lara looks like a prostitute in Legend: yes or no" and runs away :ohn:*


*On the other side,imagines polls like:

Do you think Kurtis should:

Be hanged by the ankles

Be covered in honey and offered to the GROK Teddy Bear Army

Be made to listen Brother Obscura

Be forced to face Boaz with no weapons ( taking a spray of anti-bug thing)

Compare his chirugai with Rutland's frag grenades,while this one walks around him, exploding them

Ahah...dreams,dreams :vlol:*

jarhead

should kurtis:


be tied up and thrown in with a cage of hungary bears
slowly left to hang over a vat of acid with a rat biting through the rope
have pipolinne command her teddybears to slowly but surely eat kurtis alive, leaving the grisly bits (most of his body) to the lockness monster

Pipolinne
17-04-06, 22:25
The third option is already there,in "Should Kurtis be covered in honey",lolol!

Thank you for your Grok support,Jarhead :)!

Ahah...I prefer not to be able of creating polls!i'm afraid what such power could make me do :vlol:!

jarhead

Should Grokers rule the entire forum:

-Yes. I'm a spiritual illuminated person.

- No. I shall burn in hell.

-Our beloved mistress,do you want us to prepare a revolution?

:D The more I imagine,the more I believe we shouldn't be allowed to create polls freely,lolol!

I go to another forum where you're allowed to create polls and to tell the truth there aren't many of them. Maybe it's just that this community is full of teenagers that gotta calm down once in a while. :p
