  • Are we talking about stripper polls?
  • Stripper polls would be a better subject that making a poll to complain a out polls.
    Polls are useful both kinds ;)

    I would love to see a separate forum just for polls

    I think there are plenty of silly polls, the one you cited is definitely among them. But I think they can be used as valuable tools to convey the desires of the player base to the powers that be at DB. I'd rather have them than not. Besides, polls are fun. It's always nice when someone actually WANTS your opinion.

    Isn't voting yes acknowledging that the answer is no?

    Not really. The forum is not representative of the player base.

    It's the best representation of the player base that DB has to go on, whether they are willing to admit it or not. They would be utterly foolish to ignore it.

    No, they'd be utterly foolish to give it undue weight. They do send out random surveys.

    Really? I've never gotten one. This is the first I've ever heard of this.
  • hell yes
    is it "no more polls", or "no, more polls"?

    There is no question mark so is there really a question?

    100% this...The vast majority don't give two toots (trying not to curse) about what is said/goes on here... Can't say I blame them, really.

    That's the thing, I think it's better than the wall of text suggestions that usually make into Make It So. We may not be a large sample of the user base, but we are a passionate representation with several of the largest whales in the game in here.

    Having seen many suggestions from the forums make it into the game especially the character suggestion ones, I think it is more effective way of communicating forum members desires/feelings to DB.

  • There is no 'no' option.
  • There is no 'no' option.

    I was thinking the same thing...

    No. I always cruise through the list of people who vote against what I want so I can put them on a list of bad people that I can send to Donald Trump so he knows who needs to be dealt with next. I think he said something about a firewall...

  • what's a poll?
    Does DB even notice our polls, or are they secretly pointing and giggling at our polls when they go to the bathroom ?
  • what's a poll?
    I think they check the forum out of polite curiousity and make decisions based on Facebook comments.
  • no more polls
