Geez :rolleyes: I hate to be a party pooper but come on guys these polls are getting a bit silly. I voted polls back in and I’m beginning to wish I hadn’t, I really thought that once the novelty wore off that we would only get a few polls. Some of them are interesting like the one about ages and favourite TR game, but do we have to keep having these “What colour underwear are you wearing, white, black or none!” type of polls. Maybe I’m just being a grouch but I thought Polls were only allowed back if they were used ‘sensibly’ and ‘sparingly’

Feel free to post your views or comments. (until this thread is closed)

Do you think polls are:

- Brilliant
- Stupid
- Blah
- All of the above
- None of the above
- Cheese?

VOTE NOW!

Wasn't there already this problem with the AOD forum? Too much poll abuse........

Frankly, if all polls are disabled again this time, I say good. It's getting out of hand how "poll happy" some of the members are getting. So, if the polls are taken away, everyone can blame a few individuals.

It's surprising how just a few people can ruin something for everyone........... :rolleyes:

Geez Collin, cut me slack here, can’t a girl make a mistake for once in her life......actually I’ve made quite a few, but that’s besides the point........*Prelude’s mind wonders* yeah that time with the water melon and whipped cream, wow that was a mistake *snaps out of it* anyway that’s not the point, besides I’m a woman I’m allowed to change my mind frequently and without warning!

For the record (ok here comes the back peddle http://www.click-smilie.de/sammlung/aktion/aktion034.gif ) I maintain that I am NOT against poll’s just silly pointless ones

Polls can be fun, but they are subject to abuse. Lately it seems like we have been getting into that neighborhood. When you log on to the forum, and it's full of polls like"Does Christina or Britney have the Cutest Belly Button?" it can get a tad discouraging.
And I think Goran is getting a little chapped too, so it probably won't persist much longer. It's a shame that we will all lose the priveledge of occasionally amusing one another with a poll because a few had to run it into the ground.

TLF thinks the vast majority of people who post crazy polls depend too much on their computers. Message for those people: put on some sunscreen and a pair of sunglasses, open the window, and take a peek out...

No, They are not. Sorry, just my honest opinion.
Too many lame polls.....ruins the board. It fills up space with poll after poll after poll...and they are all almost the same as the last one......One a month would suffice.
