Okay just a concern...

I think that the poll section on this website is great. However, as of late, the topics have been getting stupider and stupider, and I think it should be something serious. I've been really turned off from getting on it lately, because a lot of the topics are either completely ridiculous, don't apply to anyone, or they're jokes. Should they be monitored or maybe when someone submits one, a moderator approves it? I understand a lot of the debates are jokes, and I suppose that's fine, but the polls right now are just a giant clusterf*** of stupidity. If there were far less, more serious polls, I feel like people would be more inclined to vote on them. I think we should also have it so that you had to have participated in debates to make a poll. I know a lot of people make fake accounts just to be annoying morons and make troll polls (oh ho ho that rhymed). So anyways, what are you all's take on it? Do you agree, or am I just being too sensitive?

If there were far less, more serious polls, I feel like people would be more inclined to vote on them. I think we should also have it so that you had to have participated in debates to make a poll.

Moderators already have tight enough security on the Opinion section. The result is so much as a sarcastic poop analogy on a serious topic not being allowed. Hell, they've deleted some legitimate questions from me just cause I swore once in its defense.

Basically, don't let mods have power. Ever.

If you want the poll section to have serious questions, the simple solution is just to ask serious questions.

The opinions and polls have completely different moderators from the forums and debates. For concerns regarding the former, you should use the "contact us" to email Juggle directly.

personally, I dont care. But recently, polls have become the passageway from noobs to dead or actual DDOers. Most newcomers of DDO go for polls first because its the easiest function of DDO

Also, as more legends of DDO are retiring, the income of noobs has entered DDO. Thus, the intelligence level of DDO is on a sharp decline with a depiction of a graph of exponential decay. Therefore, everything here becomes stupider.

Most of the polls you may be seeing are those that are spammed by one or more particular idiots who spam polls just to be near the top of the leaderboard, or are just dumb b*tches who have no self control or courtesy for others......
