At first, the polls didn't seem like a dumb idea. It could help making interesting surveys and discussions based the alternatives the original poster gave.

But then the poll spree came. Poll after poll with the same shallow content came one after another. "Wat anime do u like the best?" with alternatives like naruto, bleach, one piece and so on. "What fruit do you like the best?"...


There's nothing wrong with polls, but I'm beginning to feel that there should be a requirement for making polls. Thanks to the allowance of real polls VS and naruto/[insert overrated anime] have begun flooding the forum. I might be wrong on this point, but has the amount of duplicates increased since we got the polls?

Seriously >_<

Also, I feel that when you're making a topic/poll, there should be a warning or something that would say the following:

"Warning, have you checked if there already is a topic/poll that is similar to yours? If not, please do before making your own, after all making duplicate are against forum rules. Please check the rules quick before deciding to make your topic in case it might break the[/o rules [insert= URL to rules]

That's my honest feeling about the situation on this forum is now. I feel that something this silly is necessary in order to fight the oncoming flood of naruto/bleach threads, VS threads, duplicates and whatnot.


So I ask you, fellow CR members, what do you think of our situation? What is your suggestion on how we could make things better? Should there be a requirement on polls?
Maybe 1500 CR points for making polls?


Examples of pointless, meaningless, spam worthy, WTF worthy or just duplicate polls:

They suck, they don't deserve to be here. They create no discussion what so ever and most of time users just make one word answers.

It pisses me off. >_> Their choices don't fit my tastes either. Like on a topic about whats your favorite anime, most of the time, the only choices are naruto, bleach, and one piece.

Maybe only a selected few should be allowed to make polls. An example of this is the World of Warcraft forums. Not long ago they started having polls, however only the community managers can make the polls.

Maybe something similar is needed here?

Indeed, new avatar. I wanted another one but it got fudged up so I didn't bother having it q_q

The poll feature is a good idea .
However , shinji just threw it in without a say .
The poll feature cannot be abused by anyone .
If a user has been abusing the poll feature , one must report .

Polls are becoming a new pest on CR. However as democratic as this matter is, I believe everybody has the right to use them, since shinji aproved it. Now, people should also think if they will do right to use them. I believe there should be specific sections for polls to be used, such as the E.D. section -been a place where you wouldn't post like other people say, and excuse my crude words: mindlessly; simply for fun, or to gain CR points.- People abuses polls mainly in the Anime, or General sections.

That could actually be a good idea, as most of the posters of the locked polls have below 5000 CR points.

The difference between polls and VS thread is..

VS threads = to see what's best

Polls = what people prefer

I think you can roughly sum it up like that

You just report the maker of the poll, same thing ;)

But reporting one or two makers won't solve the problem.
