in reply to Re: The Polls
in thread The Polls

If you want a suggestion for a poll to be taken seriously, then you should go to the effort to actually write a poll. Exactly which countries did you want to list in the choices? Which entire-countries of individuals did you want to offend by not mentioning them? What rude class did you want to clump the unmentioned countries into, "Third-world", "Back-water", "Other"? (:

Please don't use just "/msg gods" to submit a poll suggestion, that won't work very well. If someone wants to provide an e-mail for recieving poll suggestions and wade through the e-mail that comes in and produce the occasional good, original, complete poll as output, then such an effort would certainly be appreciated.

Before suggesting a poll, please review past polls and poll ideas quest. If you particularly like something in poll ideas quest that doesn't appear in past polls, then "/msg gods" might be a good idea. If you do that work and come up with a particularly good poll not listed anywhere, then post it to poll ideas quest and "/msg gods".

If any other gods wish to manage an different method of collecting poll suggestions, that would be great as well. If someone wants to provide a low-maintenance way to get new polls posted w/o gods doing it by hand, that'd be nice too.

If you just want to complain without making any concrete, complete, constructive suggestions, then just reply in this thread and paraphrase "someone else should do a better job of this" and perhaps suggest a way someone else could spend a lot of time in order to make you happier. q-:

    How about a link to the quest, along with these instructions, somewhere around the voting booth or past polls? That way people can easily find it.

    Thanks for summing this up, tye. I wasn't aware of poll ideas quest and will definitely use it in future. In fact, I already submitted a poll idea: Where do the monks live?. I'll just wait for a while to allow for suggestions of more/different regions before /msg'ing gods.

    Update: Forgot to mention this - I like the current poll. Thanks!

    That would be the subject of another poll, of course.
