Hi! I'm somewhat new to the site and had a question. What purpose does the polls section serve? It seems just the same as an opinion, but is more prone to trolling and spam. What is the point?

It for the people who like the opinions section but are too lazy to type 50 words to back up what they believe.

It would be better if we had more mods (PeterSmith please) but that isn't going to happen since Juggle doesn't really care about us.
Meh!

Technically (and correct me if I'm wrong), we don't need Juggle to get more mods. Max already has the passwords and whatnot that allows him to access moderation and permissions and such, so all he really would have to do is share those codes/passwords with other users and they could basically be a mod too.
