Hello all,

I think this thread could get rid of the polling section and instead incorporate that as an option in the forums sections. Polls are made to get a visual representation of where people side on contentious issues, or for fun. What follows is the conversation, discussing poll results and the opinions shared. It would be easier to do all of that on one page, where in the OP the poll question and result is posted, along with the post of the OP.

Hm.... perhaps we should get a poll going here to see if people are in agreement or disagreement with me! Damn... we cant!!

He was being sarcastic. The site owners practically abandoned the site ages ago. Updates are very rare.

It isn't. It is the most frequented section of the site.

It may be but no one posts anything coherent or interesting on there so most people just pretend it doesn't exist.

That's mainly because the polls are bugged to hell, which is also why I stopped posting polls until airmax or Juggle gets it fixed.
