PostSubject: How to make a poll.   Sun Jun 01, 2008 8:41 pm

You know, the fact that everyone complains about spam, and post count was removed in various places because of spam, I'm surprised that this section hasn't fallen victim to the jaws of sanity.

Guess it's time to enforce a few things myself.

Alright, so you want to make a poll.

Great, that's what this section is here for. But hold up. Ask yourself a few things first. Are people really going to care about your poll? Something like "Lucario vs Eevee" and other "who's better" type polls are just asking for a beating. Also, ask yourself if the topic is too broad to be a poll. If so, feel free to simply create a discussion thread about it in the Other: Chat board.

You've deemed that your topic is ready to become a poll.

Good, now, the biggest, most irritating thing that happens with polls is the lack of relevant voting choices. A poll does not need fifty ways of saying yes or no, nor do the options need to be "nooooooooooooooooooo way!!!!!!!!!!!!!"; a simple "no" will do. Remember, if a poll has too many options that people can vote on, it's better to make a topic about it, rather than just have an "other" option.

A couple of things to keep in mind.

Poll presentation is a nice thing. Try to make your poll interesting by using images or facts in your first post. That way, polls are not simply a popularity contest, and people with little knowledge of the subject have something to base their vote on.

Thank you for reading, and please, make the effort to keep this section clean and spam-free. Also, any addition to these guidelines are greatly appreciated.
