Should Poid stop making polls?
    #11338401 - 10/28/09 03:05 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

:sherlock:
Should he?
You may choose only one
Yes
No


Votes accepted from (10/28/09 03:05 PM) to (No end specified)
You must vote before you can view the results of this poll



--------------------
:bunny::bunnyhug:
All this time I've loved you
And never known your face
All this time I've missed you
And searched this human race
Here is true peace
Here my heart knows calm
Safe in your soul
Bathed in your sighs

:bunnyhug: :yinyang2:

I voted yes because poles are useless information, just like stats

They can seem incredible, but 90% of them are untrue

Even if they are true, so what?
We hear them, go 'WOW!' :eek:
Then forget about it...

The only stats that would be good for development would be personal stats not general stats
like - 'Debunker' has made 10,000 posts about debunking spirituality'
Then 'Debunker' might see how obsessed with spirituality he really is :lol:


:peace:

dude you can get really good data from polls
i mean it has to be a good poll, and perhaps many of poid's are not, but don't knock polls in general

How are they useful though?
What goal is achieved?

The only goal i can see (for us here) is changing forum rules
So unless the poll is about forum rules, its useless :shrug:

Im very open to you prooving me wrong....please do!

:peace:

The polls I'm making are about whether or not you guys are interested in having my ideas implemented. :shrug:

Im not interested in your ideas, i am interested in you, the one who has ideas

Although your ideas about subforums etc... were okay i suppose
But i feel all forums should be open to newbies too, we were all newbies...
but subsections for S&P regulars are okay too :shrug:

I just doubt id use it...most people who have been round here for a while have a severe chip on thier shoulder

:peace:

Well, this forum isn't about individual posters, it's about their posts; if you're interested in me, then just shoot me a couple of :pm:'s. :shrug:

My idea wasn't about a sub-forum, it was about a sticky thread where only official regular users may post in

I said i was very open to being prooven wrong... :rolleyes:
Which btw you didn't do...

We are talking about polls for THIS FORUM, being useless
The only good that could come from a poll in this forum, is one about the forum itself
All other polls would be useless

We dont elect the president at the shroomery

:peace:

if we took a poll on most effective ways to prevent contamination when growing, you don't think that would be useful?

No. As long as they are in line with the forum they appear in. No objection.

The polls should be moved to the polls forum.

That is the least popular forum, IMO. :sadyes:

Yes, but that would be in the cultivation forum, so it would be about that forum
My point was that polls in the forum, about anything outside the forum, are useless

I think we got our wires crossed as you thought i was saying ALL polls are useless?

That would be saying democracy is stupid, which would be stupid!

:peace:
