Discussion in 'General OFF TOPIC' started by glider, Apr 6, 2009.
Just wanted to get your thoughts about the polls on the site.
I find forum discussions more useful then polls 90% of the time,that said I read everyone of the lubricant reviews and looked at the poll results before I switched to what I am running now.The only poll I would like to see now is one with the different tuners named and just a simple satisfied,not satisfied and why because that does seem to be a major subject.
Some are ok other waste fo time
Couldn't have said it better myself...
I like the polls, adds a little interaction for the members. I agree with biglew55, annoying that a vote on a poll, even without comments, shows up on "unread posts".
Keep 'em coming.
I looked for a "I don't vote on polls" selection but couldn't find one! :taunt
I think that polls are very useful for topics such as oil because they consolidate posts on the subject and provide members with an overview of what other members are using. Otherwise we would have endless new threads on common subjects instead of a "one stop" reference point.
I agree with Big Lou's views.
2+ for Big Lou, some are handy as a "snap shot" as to the direction a thread is leaning, which is especially helpful for new viewers, who have not had the opportuity to read through all the posts, and one reason I prefer not to originate threads, as I am on this site not only as a moderator, but primarily as a good listener, trying to get a feel for each post I read first and weigh in only to contribute just a bit, and allow free form thinking to prevail, letting the thread weave it's own fabric and content.
