I tried submitting a poll, but it wouldn't work.

Does anyone know why? Thanks in advance.

Because the site is broken. It does not work for 40% of the users.

That really sucks . . . Hopefully Juggle (or whoever manages the site) will fix this. If not, I'm probably going to leave.

Error from Juggle, it's been there for half a year. Juggle's too lazy to fix it.

The company who owns this - (not mentioning by name to avoid filters), is more concerned with exploiting writers for pennies (until they build a "reputatiion" as a writer) on another website that they own.

I tried to email themabout this websites potential and even created a profile on their other website - but realized that they only keep this website to post their own polls and opinion questions for their own interests and marketing objectives.

Well, for practically the last year the polls have been broken. Many users found that they are not able to submit polls, and the ones that are able to submit them receive the error "we were unable to save your poll", which results in them hitting the submit button multiple times. However, the polls actually are submitting for these people, which results in countless duplicates. Recently, unfortunately it would appear that the polls are even further broken, where no user is able to make a poll.

That's useful information to know. It's really sad when you think about it . . . This site used to be great, when I first joined about a year ago (under a different account).

Yeah, I'm pretty sure nobody can submit a poll now. The last poll was submitted about four days ago, which is odd considering there are usually a bunch of polls submitted daily.

Does anyone know why? Thanks in advance.

Well, for practically the last year the polls have been broken. Many users found that they are not able to submit polls, and the ones that are able to submit them receive the error "we were unable to save your poll", which results in them hitting the submit button multiple times. However, the polls actually are submitting for these people, which results in countless duplicates. Recently, unfortunately it would appear that the polls are even further broken, where no user is able to make a poll.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure nobody can submit a poll now. The last poll was submitted about four days ago, which is odd considering there are usually a bunch of polls submitted daily.

I'm 100% sure people can't submit polls right now because I'm the poll moderator and I would know these sort of things.
Sorry, I didn't mean to sound like I doubted you. I don't have a "way with words", if you know what I mean.

If you don't have a way with words how can I ever be sure I know what you mean, you know what I mean?
Yeah, I don't even know what I mean sometimes. Also, I hate English class.

Don't worry, due to the fact that he doesn't have a way with words that means that when he told you that he doesn't have a way with words he probably meant that he does have way with words, you were just confused because he doesn't have a way with words so when he was trying to say that he does have a way with words he accidentally said that he doesn't have a way with words, if you know what I mean.

Yeah, it's really sad. This site has so much potential.
The company who owns this - (not mentioning by name to avoid filters), is more concerned with exploiting writers for pennies (until they build a "reputatiion" as a writer) on another website that they own.

I tried to email themabout this websites potential and even created a profile on their other website - but realized that they only keep this website to post their own polls and opinion questions for their own interests and marketing objectives.
That's useful information to know. It's really sad when you think about it . . . This site used to be great, when I first joined about a year ago (under a different account).

I joined a little over 2 weeks ago, and I have fallen in love with the diversity of ideas here. Don't leave. I'm trying to unite members who see this site's positives to revive the site from within.

What I'm saying is: let the company who owns this site, have the polls and ?'s. I think they send trolls to the forums to try to kill the forums, because they want to market ideas in a pc way. And forums have to broad of ideology to do that.

Lets unite in our right to freedom of expression and keep the forums alive. I'm new here and love this sites potential for dialog, but if people leave, the poll makers win by appealing only to users who don't go on the forums.

Debate.org shouldn't kill the polls, just the opinion section, because that can be covered within the poll section. However, I agree that the forums are the most important part of the site (aside from the debates).
