Wtf is STAL?
    #11362621 - 11/01/09 03:15 PM (8 years, 7 months ago)

I've noticed that on the bottom of a lot of the polls I've seen on this forum the bottom option is STAL. Wtf does it mean?

Sir-Tokes-A-Lot was a user who used to complain when a poll didn't include an option for those who were not affected/counted/relevant.

Ohhh that makes sense now. haha.

I just saw a poll in another thread and was like... what the hell does STAL mean and why is it always on the bottom of polls?

FYI: polls on the Shroomery without a STAL option are considered invalid polls.

STAL isn't just some final option to see the results without
having to vote.  STAL is much more than that.  STAL
enables us to create a valid poll where someone who falls
into the "Other," "Does not apply," "NA" or "Don't know/
don't care" categories can provide some feedback without
skewing the results.

It really is ingenious.

That defeats the whole purpose.  Sometimes the people who
read the question but don't want to vote or don't fit into a
category need to be factored in as well.  The STAL population
is an important one.

We have that option, but that doesn't count abstentions. STAL does.

You make it all possible. Doesn't it feel good?
